A Special Place For You & Your Skin
Timeless Laser & Skin Care is a holistic practice devoted to helping men and women look their best at any age by offering non-invasive laser and light-based therapies for improving skin texture, pigment, tone, and treating blood vessels. She also has a large injectable practice due to her artistic eye and gentle technique.
Dr. Stefanie Christian is the founder of Timeless Laser & Skin Care in Westlake, Ohio.

In 2001, Dr. Christian incorporated laser aesthetics into her OB/GYN practice.

Dr. Stefanie Christian
M.D. & Owner
Dr. Christian has been using lasers in medicine since 1987, when she was trained and certified during her residency; but initially, she learned about lasers while studying Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry at Yale University.
“I was immediately fascinated by lasers and loved the physics involved,” Dr. Christian says. Dr. Christian has used a variety of lasers in her medical career including both ablative lasers (ones that destroy tissue) as well as the non-ablative and minimally-ablative lasers she currently uses. Non-ablative lasers change tissue without destroying it and have little or no down time.
Dr. Christian received her undergraduate degree from Yale University in Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, cum laude. She earned her medical degree with honors from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, where she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society.
She is a member of the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery and the International Society of Cosmetic and Laser Surgeons. In addition, Dr. Christian has extensive training in nutrition, especially as it pertains to health and wellness.
In 2003 and 2004, Dr. Christian was enrolled in the on-line fellowship in Integrative Medicine offered through the University of Arizona and Andrew Weil, M.D. Her focus was on women’s health, nutrition, and hormonal balancing.
“With my background in biochemistry and additional training in nutrition, I have a particular interest in the effects of lifestyle and diet on wellness and how it affects skin,” she said. “As a result, I have a more holistic approach to skin care.”
Born in Munich, Germany, Dr. Christian’s family moved to Cleveland in 1967. Dr. Christian graduated from Laurel School in Shaker Heights in 1979. An age-group swimmer as a girl, Dr. Christian competed on the crew team while at Yale. She lives on Cleveland’s west side with her husband, who is also a physician, and their three children.
Angela Gibbons has been a medical office manager for 18+ years. She provides an outstanding introduction to Timeless services and our long term clients have come to rely on her. She first began working with Dr. Christian in 1997 at The Cleveland Clinic.
Despite many transitions and changes within the field of medicine, Angela maintained her working relationship with Dr. Christian and in 1999 began managing her practice in Lakewood, Ohio. She facilitated the purchase of the first laser Dr. Christian incorporated into her OB/GYN practice in 2001. Angela has a patient forward approach to customer service. “I look forward to coming into the office every day because I get to help change people’s lives through education, treatments and products.”
Kylie Passafiume has been an aesthetician since 2009. She received her education at the Brown Aveda Institute. She then began working in the salon and spa industry and found a special place with Dr. Christian in 2014 where she has remained.
Since then her passion for skincare was taken to a whole new level. She has learned new exciting techniques and treatments that better her knowledge in skin, nutrition and health while working under the direction of Dr. Christian. Kylie’s experience working in the spa industry has allowed her to have a unique approach to her facials, offering all the medical skin care benefits while also incorporating relaxation. Kylie loves performing chemical peels, customizing facials and educating patient’s to meet their home care specific needs.
