Dr. Amelia K. Hausauer

Meet Dr. Amelia K. Hausauer – Board-Certified Dermatologist

Dr. Amelia Hausauer’s childhood was spent as a classically trained ballet dancer. She lived and breathed dance for over two decades, understanding fully the rigors and discipline required to excel and inspiring a deep appreciation that the “sum is far more than the parts.” That early understanding of beauty and line, muscle and tissue, has become key to her work as the Director of Dermatology at Aesthetx, the Silicon Valley’s premier plastic surgery and dermatology practice, as well as her multiple roles as a clinical research investigator, author and visionary in the field of minimally invasive aesthetics.


Prior to Aesthetx, Dr. Hausauer gained critical experience, education and training in medical, surgical, and aesthetic dermatology—a knowledge base she brings to every consultation with her patients.  After receiving a Bachelors of Arts with the highest honors in Human Biology from Stanford University, Dr. Hausauer went on to earn her medical doctorate at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and complete her dermatologic residency at New York University’s (NYU) Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology. During this time, she worked with luminaries in the field and became particularly interested in the role of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and microneedling to stimulate self-healing and potentially treat skin conditions.


Dr. Hausauer then returned to California to complete an American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS)-accredited cosmetic surgery fellowship at the world-renowned Skin Care and Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills.  

Dr. Hausauer has a thirst for knowledge and passion for furthering her craft. She spent several years pioneering PRP and microneedling including spearheading the most influential clinical trial on this subject for non-surgical hair growth. She also trains physicians around the country as a luminary in the rapidly growing field of regenerative dermatology and prejuvenation.


Dr. Hausauer was selected to be the Chief Editor of and a contributing author to the upcoming medical textbook PRP and Microneedling in Aesthetic Medicine, a rare honor. She has also written extensively about neuromodulators (i.e. BOTOX® cosmetic) and dermal fillers and has served as an investigator on FDA trials for Allergan, Merz Aesthetics, Revance therapeutics, and ThermiGen LLC. She was recently selected to participate in the prestigious ASDS Future Leaders Network, a program designed to groom thought leaders and influencers in the field of procedural dermatology.Dr. Hausauer uses this background to develop a full-spectrum plan addressing multiple concerns with multiple non-surgical treatment options. 


Dr. Hausauer’s love of art and style influences the way she approaches treatments including the use of fillers, neuromodulators, a complement of different lasers and thread lifts.  

All of this expertise goes into treating her patients daily at Aesthetx. Along with Dr. Kamakshi R. Zeidler and Dr. R. Laurence Berkowitz, Dr. Hausauer offers her patients the unique benefit of blending dermatology and plastic surgery under one roof
