About Dr. Lancer

At the age of 7, Dr. Lancer accidentally fell into a vat of near boiling water, burning over 10% of his body. While the experience was unfortunate and painful, it was to be remembered as an event that changed his life forever. Throughout his recovery, Dr. Lancer became fascinated with the skin’s healing and regeneration process, spending countless hours creating his own kid-friendly “treatments” and testing them on his siblings. The experience not only led him to a career in dermatology, but also greatly influenced his belief in restoration as opposed to alteration as the most effective way to obtain healthy, radiant skin.

Dr. Lancer is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and is affiliated with multiple medical organizations. He is a graduate of Brandeis University and earned his medical degree from the University of California, San Diego. After receiving his degree, Dr. Lancer moved to Boston and completed his graduate dermatology training at Harvard Medical School. He also completed the surgical program at the Tel Hashomer Hospital in Tel Aviv, Israel and studied at multiple clinics in St. John’s Institute of Dermatology, London UK.

In 1983, Dr. Lancer opened his practice in Beverly Hills and has since grown to become a multi-award-winning, world-renowned dermatologist and pioneer, providing the best and most innovative skin care treatments and technologies. With his development of the Ancestry Scale, Dr. Lancer is able to provide personalized medical advice and treatment to each individual patient. In his clinic, he manages medical, surgical, malignant and non-malignant tumors as well as an array of cosmetic concerns.

Dr. Lancer’s passion, work ethic, integrity, approach, and results have made him one of the most sought-after, respected dermatologists in the world. He, along with his nurses and aestheticians, treat as many as 30+ patients a day—including the most glamorous A-list celebrities and members of royal families. Dr. Lancer’s unmatched dedication to the practice of dermatology and his patients is the nucleus of Lancer Dermatology and Lancer Skincare. He is always available to his patients, offering both in-person and virtual appointments.

About Lancer Skincare

Believing that skincare could do more, Dr. Lancer set out to develop his own line of products and in 1985 The Lancer Method was born. Since then, Dr. Lancer has successfully brought to life his philosophy of “From Practice To Product”, developing a full range of award winning, at-home products that each individually simulate services provided to clients at the Lancer Dermatology Clinic in Beverly Hills.

The Lancer Method: Polish, Cleanse and Nourish is the heart of Dr. Lancer’s skincare assortment and the first regimen he recommends to all new patients. This simple, 3-Step routine of exfoliating, cleansing and moisturizing works by influencing the skin’s natural regenerative cycle, which gradually slows down as one ages. It reverses this slowdown by promoting cell turnover and natural collagen regeneration, thus training the skin to renew itself faster. The simplicity of the Lancer Method belies its remarkable ability to improve and slow down signs of aging for visibly younger, more radiant looking skin. Click here to Find Your Method!

Over the last three decades, Dr. Lancer has successfully expanded the Lancer Skincare assortment to include a variety of serums, creams, oils, masks and peels to address all skin concerns, regardless of skin type or ancestry. These treatments are used to enhance the effects of The Lancer Method, with each one carefully researched and developed to provide the best over-the-counter formulations possible. Whether your concern is Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Dark Spots & Uneven Tone, Redness & Irritation, Loss of Firmness, Puffy Eyes & Dark Circles or Acne & Pore Size, Dr. Lancer has day, night, and weekly treatments plus suggested regimens to help you achieve real results.
