Our board-certified dermatologist and certified physician assistants offer a wide range of dermatology services. We treat all skin conditions, including acne, psoriasis, skin fungus, and - of course - skin cancers. Our providers are happy to create a treatment plan that meets your needs. We also offer select cosmetic services such as Botox® and chemical peels.
Our office is located West off highway 528 on 21st St. Our entrance is on the east side of the building facing the Extended Stay America. We are across the parking lot of Foot and Ankle specialists.
A biopsy is the removal of a piece of skin to help render a diagnosis of skin cancers or inflammatory conditions. Dermatologists biopsy an area to confirm a diagnosis that cannot be rendered with the eyes alone. We need a microscope to be certain.
Psoriasis is an inflammation in the skin driven by the body’s own immune system. The inflammation in the skin causes red, itchy, and scaly lesions mainly around elbows, knees and scalp. While not contagious, it’s important to seek the help of a dermatologist.
A rash is an abnormal change in your skin’s texture or color, usually characterized by a red, scaly irritation on your skin. Because of the sheer number of rashes and their subtle differences, specialized training is required to properly diagnose and treat rashes.
Warts are non-cancerous skin growths that appear when a virus infects the top layer of skin. Although they aren’t dangerous, they are contagious. As with any noticeable change in your skin, it’s best to consult our team, so we can provide treatment options.
A skin spot referred to as a “precancerous lesion” is usually a specific sun-induced growth called actinic keratosis. It’s one of the most common issues we see in dermatology, and it’s what prompts most patients to schedule their dermatologist visits.
Injectable fillers help restore volume in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that come with age. Injectable fillers have also been used to make thin lips fuller, correct acne scars, and make the areas under the eyes less dark or puffy.
Wrinkle Reduction (BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, etc.)
As our skin thins over time, it creases more easily with muscle movement. Neuromodulator (Botox® Cosmetic, DAXXIFY®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) treatments prevent wrinkles because they lessen this contraction. With these injections, the toxins stop the muscle movements that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and wrinkling.
