Dr. Conn’s Legacy

Dr. Melanie Ho Erb took over the practice of Dr. Howard Conn in October of 2016. Read this excerpt from his letter to the public about his retirement and handing over the practice.

I announced my retirement...
I want to make sure that anyone whom I recommend to you has the same sense of aesthetics, caution and integrity to give you the best care possible. Thus, I am thrilled to announce this exciting news...
I am pleased to introduce Dr. Melanie Ho Erb, a fellowship-trained ocular plastic surgeon and laser specialist who will be taking over my practice...
I have known Dr. Erb when I was Chief of Ocular Plastic Surgery at the University of California, Irvine and the Beckman Laser Institute where I helped train her in eyelid surgery. She now has ten years’ experience as an ocular plastic surgeon and has performed thousands of successful procedures.
I know you will be in good hands with Dr. Erb.Dr. Howard Conn

Dr. Conn says the following about laser treatment

Unlike dermabrasion and chemical peels, the CO2 skin rejuvenation laser uses a very high-energy beam of light to vaporize or “erase” wrinkles, lines, scars, brown spots and other skin defects. Laser light penetrates to a very precise, computer-controlled depth, making the procedure safe, predictable and essentially bloodless. The precision of the laser allows Dr. Conn to determine exactly how much tissue and specific areas to treat during the procedure. Laser skin rejuvenation is gentler and more exacting than chemical peels and dermabrasion. There is a vast array of treatment options for the consumer to navigate. It is virtually impossible for the average person to know which lasers work and which do not. Dr. Conn has been in the forefront of the development of laser technology and has traveled the world researching lasers.Dr. Howard Conn
