Meet Arisa Ortiz, MD, FAAD: Dermatologist and Director of Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology


Hi, my name is Dr. Arisa Ortiz and I’m a
board-certified dermatologist and the director of laser and cosmetic
dermatology at UC San Diego Health. Since my focus is cosmetic dermatology my
approach would be to make a patient like the best version of themselves just so
they look more refreshed you know I like to comfort my patients by insuring them
that no one’s going to be able to tell that you had anything done you know
you’re just gonna look like you went on a long vacation or you took a long nap
and so you know I really like to just kind of enhance features rather than
over accentuate them that I think is the number one reason why patients don’t
want to get cosmetics is they’re afraid of looking fake or unnatural so my focus
really is to keep them looking natural. During your consultation we have 30
minutes to discuss your concerns and you know and what you’re looking to address
and it is really building a relationship because most things aren’t corrected in
just one treatment visit so I just want to kind of get to know you and get to
know what you’re looking for we can discuss all the treatment options. There’s many benefits to coming to UC San Diego Health I think first and
foremost you know that the physician that you’re seeing is well trained and
is an expert in you know in what they do so I actually did on top of my residency
in dermatology I actually did a cosmetic fellowship at Harvard which was
specifically devoted to just cosmetic training and then did a second
fellowship in Moh’s surgery which is skin cancer
surgery and reconstruction so I also have a surgical background. Another
benefit of coming to UC San Diego Health is that we have the luxury of having
multiple devices so we can actually tailor your treatment to your specific
needs so we’re not gonna offer you the one laser that we have you know some
practices may only be able to have one laser but we actually have multiple
lasers dozens of lasers and so we will pick the specific device that’s you know
specific to your needs so that you get the best treatment.
