Dr. Kevin Lie MD

With a specialty in vascular and interventional radiology, Dr. Lie has been performing complex, minimally invasive procedures and surgeries for over 12 years,

Since 2008, Dr. Lie has been on the front lines of transformational medicine and interventional surgery.

After mastering the most advanced interventional techniques available, Dr. Lie invested the first half of his career working directly with cancer patients and managing transplant teams. These experiences perfected the fine hand skills necessary for delicate procedures, and expanded his heart for helping others to become healthy and whole, inside and out.

During these years, Dr. Lie observed many potential problems with the current hospital and healthcare system, such as inflation, inefficiency, inaccessibility, and most of all, the inability to prioritize each patient’s individual experience. But the most personal conflict came from being forced to focus strictly on minimizing patient symptoms, rather than on achieving optimal outcomes. 

That’s when he began dreaming about a better way to help his patients become the best version of themselves.

Having intervened in the lives of countless patients who were striving just to survive, Dr. Lie now practices his passion to help people truly thrive. At LifeHope Healing Med Spa, we are proud to provide concierge medical procedures that are completely personalized to each patient, within a luxury boutique environment. Equipped with the most effective procedures and cutting-edge technologies now available, Dr. Lie can guarantee the same surgical results (or better), with less risk, greater accessibility, and minimal recovery times. That’s the beauty of it: outpatient procedures that produce optimal outcomes that are more accessible, more affordable, and more comfortable than invasive surgery. 

Dr. Lie believes the journey to rejuvenation isn’t supposed to be about suppressing your symptoms… it’s about helping you enhance and elevate your body and beauty, so you can become the best possible version of yourself.

It feels good to be able to say that. Moreover, the very best part of LifeHope Healing Med Spa is our fabulous team of the most skilled and professional providers. We look forward to serving you.”


"It all started when I was 8 years old, and my mother got me my own, special face cleanser. I honestly became obsessed with washing my face and would do it about 4 times a day. I had the fortune of having a mother who was really into skincare and preached it to my sister and I. Thankfully she told us to stay out of the sun very early on. I’m so grateful to her for that great piece of advice especially since I became an esthetician. I honestly can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t interested in skin and beauty. I would say that I was destined to work in esthetics. I absolutely love making people feel and look good. It’s so fulfilling when you know you’ve made a difference in someone’s life by making them feel good and ultimately feel loved. That’s why after almost 25 years I love what I do more then ever. It’s the connecting with other human beings. That’s what life is all about."
