About Dr. Maria Bonilla

Dr. Maria Bonilla is a board-certified dermatologist, recognized by the American Board of Dermatology. She received her MD degree from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) after graduating from San Diego State University. She completed her dermatology residency at the University of Kansas, where she was the Chief Resident. To ensure her patients receive the best possible care, she actively learns the newest clinical and cosmetic techniques. Her expertise in cosmetic and laser surgery is highly regarded among her colleagues and patients. Dr. Bonilla's passion is to help her patients achieve healthy skin that they can feel confident in. Because she believes in treating her patients wholesomely, rather than just their conditions, she takes the time to tailor each treatment to her patients' individual needs. In addition to treating medical dermatology conditions, Dr. Bonilla is constantly sought after for her skills for treatments, such as Intense Pulse Light (IPL), non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing, and ablative CO2 laser. Moreover, Dr. Bonilla frequently performs surgical excisions to treat malignant and non-malignant lesions, including skin cancers, cysts, and lipomas. After working in private practice in San Diego, Dr. Bonilla went on to head the Department of Dermatology at Kaiser Permanente in San Marcos, CA for 6 years. In 2018, Dr. Bonilla founded her new and current practice, Lanoi Dermatology, in San Diego. At Lanoi, she leads her team to treat both medical and cosmetic dermatologic conditions. Furthermore, Dr. Bonilla is a featured dermatologist on SkyMD, where she treats patients online.
