As respected physicians with decades of experience, what is most satisfying about dermatology today?

One thing that has changed over the years and is particularly satisfying is that patients can avoid major procedures because we can offer so many non-invasive options. Two of the most effective are SculpSure and Ultherapy. SculpSure is light-based body contouring that eliminates stubborn areas of fat. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure cleared by the FDA to lift skin on the neck, jowls and brow area.

We specialize in the most advanced techniques of medical, cosmetic, laser and surgical dermatology. We have expertise in Mohs Micrographic surgery with cosmetic facial reconstruction for the treatment of skin cancer. There are continual new developments in minimally-invasive face and body rejuvenation such as liposuction. We use lasers to repair scars and stretch marks, tighten facial skin, remove unwanted hair, and for body contouring and leg vein issues, among other conditions such as acne, rosacea and unwanted pigmentation caused by the sun.

With expertise in both cosmetic and medical dermatology, it is fulfilling to care for patients with a variety of needs. All procedures are done under the direction of board certified physicians who offer
compassionate care with attention to detail.

What advice do you have to help me achieve overall skin health?

Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies and it has “memory.” The sun damage we sustain over the years has a cumulative effect. As we age, the sunburns and tans of our youth can start to show up as brown spots, wrinkles, sagging skin or even skin cancers. Annual screenings are key to catching and resolving problems early. We recommend wearing a daily SPF of at least 30, avoiding tanning beds, keeping your skin hydrated and maintaining a healthy body, which ultimately keeps your skin healthy.
