Biography

E. Victor Ross, MD, is a dermatologist specializing in laser surgery of the skin. He uses a broad array of technologies to reduce red and brown skin lesions, wrinkles and unwanted hair, improve spider veins of the legs and improve the appearance of scars, including acne scars. Other newer noninvasive skin tightening and fat reduction tools are also available in the practice. Dr. Ross also provides a variety of injectables and fillers to relax upper face lines and replace lost volume of the lower face.


In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Ross conducts research on novel approaches to skin rejuvenation. With access to the latest technologies, he is able to conduct research on fractional lasers for acne scars, use of a novel radiofrequency device for stretch mark reduction and the use of novel intense pulsed light for the reduction of red and brown spots on the face, chest and extremities. Presently, Dr. Ross and colleagues are conducting a trial that studies laser tattoo removal with fewer treatment sessions and less pain.


Throughout his career, Dr. Ross has achieved many accomplishments. He was the first Navy-sponsored fellow in photomedicine and lasers at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he conducted research and clinical trials in photodynamic therapy and novel laser applications. He was honored with the prestigious Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Award for Excellence in Military Medicine. He was elected president of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to promoting excellence in patient care. He was also elected to the board of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. He was recognized by the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) with the Caroline and William Mark Memorial Award, as well as the Leon Goldman Award, for his lifetime contributions to research.


Presently, he is the director of the Scripps Clinic Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology Center and a frequent lecturer at national and international meetings on cutaneous laser medicine. He also serves on the editorial board of two major dermatologic journals.


Dr. Ross is committed to delivering laser and cosmetic rejuvenation procedures that are effective and based on a strong scientific foundation, with an emphasis on safety and comfort.
