After graduating from the UCSF School of Medicine in 1995, Dr. Mabrie started to follow in his father’s footsteps—head and neck surgery. He completed a general surgery internship and then went on to complete a residency for head and neck surgery at Johns Hopkins. Then he completed an additional fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Stanford, ultimately hanging out his shingle as a facial plastic surgeon in San Francisco.

In the 15 years since, he has set a new standard of care in aesthetic medicine.

With the mindset of both a surgeon and an artist, he began rethinking the possibilities of injectables (dermal fillers and neurotoxins). He found himself drawn to the possibilities of non surgical treatments and decided to embark on a new (at the time) approach to aesthetics. He began to intensely study, train, and practice with fillers, and for more than a decade, he has focused his practice exclusively on non surgical facial contouring and rejuvenation.

Years of experience with fillers and other injectables led Dr. Mabrie to develop the Illumination 360° approach. This involves studying the way light interacts with facial features and using injectables to optimize facial contours from every angle, in any light.

His passion for aesthetics and for education cultivated an exceptional level of expertise with injectables. DermaSculpt® has recognized Dr. Mabrie’s skill by authorizing him to educate other practitioners in the use of the DermaSculpt microcannula. He has also been voted the RealSelf community’s Most Loved Injector in the Bay Area; won the New Beauty award for Best Results With JUVÉDERM VOLUMA; is a 2018 Galderma GAIN trainer; was named among the RealSelf Top 500; and is an Allergan Top 250 provider.
