Kevin DiCerbo, RN, BSN, CMLSO

Kevin DiCerbo is the Managing Director of Celibre Medical Corporation. He founded the organization with Dr. Kaplan in 2004 and has been responsible for managing it since that time.

The vision for Celibre Medical to be the most trusted name in cosmetic dermatology came about in 2000 – 2002 during the time when Kevin was having a tattoo removed by a local plastic surgeon. The experience was not a good one and subsequently Kevin wrote the business plan that laid the foundation for the organization.

He is a registered nurse, certified medical laser safety officer (CMLSO), has over 17 years of aesthetic experience, and is an engineer as well. He has a BS in Nursing from Mt. St. Mary’s University, a BS in Civil Engineering from Cornell University and an MBA from UCLA.
