Providing the very best medical care for our patients is our number one priority during each patient encounter. Our physicians specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of skin disorders in patients of all ages. Some of the common skin conditions that we treat include:
Our physicians are expertly trained in the art of dermatologic surgery and routinely biopsy and excise both benign and malignant tumors of the skin.
While our primary focus is on medical dermatology, we do offer some cosmetic services to our patients which include the following:
Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into facial muscles to reduce or eliminate wrinkles. Botox provides a temporary reduction in wrinkles, typically lasting 3 months. Injecting Botox is a simple, in-office, nonsurgical procedure with no recovery time.
Fillers are products that are injected directly under the skin to restore volume and fullness. Effects from fillers typically last 9-12 months. Injecting fillers is an in-office, nonsurgical procedure that may require a short recovery time due to possible bruising and swelling.
Facial telangiectasias are dilated superficial blood vessels that commonly occur on the face in patients that suffer from rosacea. Telangiectasias can develop from a number of factors including chronic sun damage, genetic factors, and chronic inflammatory processes that involve the facial skin. Vascular lasers can be used to reduce the appearance of these telangiectasias without damaging the overlying skin. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve optimal cosmetic results.
