Garner, MD, FACS, board-certified plastic surgeon, and advanced practitioners offer you a wide variety of customized treatment options for your personal medical and aesthetic needs. Our treatments and services range from medical grade skin care products to laser skin enhancements and coveted facial peels only available in a physician’s office. Professional medical services offered range from a variety of acne or skin cancer treatments to Botox treatments and volume fillers for reversing aging facial deflation. Other treatments include permanent laser hair reduction and facial rejuvenation to fat dissolving medication and Kybella for “double chins.”
No voice prompting machines answer our phones during business hours; trained and caring professionals will answer your calls. All of our aesthetic treatments are provided by licensed practitioners or board-certified dermatologists, unlike many MedSpas operated by non-physicians or doctors from fields unrelated to aesthetic skin conditions, Our amazing team of fully licensed Registered Nurses (RNs) and Aestheticians (LEs) are masters of their crafts and are gifted in their ability to provide safe and compassionate care. No one is ever a “patient lite” at UltraDerm. We provide only the highest level of medical dermatology care equally to patients having major life-saving medical operations and to patients having elective beautifying treatments.
Simply providing the highest possible quality medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology treatments have elevated UltraDerm | California Skin Institute to become the true gold standard for a luxurious, professional, and caring dermatology practice in Santa Cruz.

“I was completely skeptical of Botox and Fillers but when I went for my consultation with one of the nurses, they put me at ease. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and didn’t make me feel pressured, now I’m hooked and love the way I look.” UltraDerm Patient
“I have been coming to UltraDerm for many, many years. I have had many of the procedures offered by this wonderful place. Dr. Garner is the best surgeon in the area, after my facial surgery not even my closest friends knew I did anything. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. The facials are wonderful, the nurses are knowledgeable- everyone is so friendly – nothing is rushed- it is a wonderful experience start to finish. My skin has truly never looked better!“UltraDerm Patient
