Medical Dermatology

The Dermatology & Laser Center provides the full range of medical and surgical services for dermatologic conditions in adults and children. Whether you have a common skin condition such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, der matitis, skin growths, warts, a rare or unusual skin disease, or skin cancer, our experienced medical providers will evaluate your skin condition for proper diagnosis and provide the most effective and appropriate treatment.

We have a full-service phototherapy treatment center, including narrow band UVB and PUVA for our patients with severe psoriasis and eczema and vitiligo. In addition, we offer the newest and most effective systemic biologic treatments (Enbrel, Humira, Stelara, and Remicade) for moderate to severe psoriasis.

New medical devices such as Blu-U and photodynamic therapy (PDT) are available for patients with acne and actinic damage. We continue to provide an Accutane program for patients with severe recalcitrant cystic acne. Innovative treatments such as Botox injections for severe localized sweating are available, and our state-of-the-art lasers can be used for conditions such as port-wine stains, birthmarks, and redness due to rosacea and scar revision. The Dermatology & Laser Center specializes in the detection and removal of all types of skin cancers.

Surgical

Our experienced medical team provides complete skin examination for the identification of any suspicious skin growths for possible removal. These suspicious lesions can be removed by several surgical methods, such as excisional surgery, cryosurgery, electrosurgery, laser surgery and surgery for skin cancer, including Mohs micrographic surgery. We utilize surgical techniques that provide the best possible cosmetic results for all surgical repairs.

Mohs

Mohs micrographic surgery is an advanced procedure for skin cancer, offering the highest potential for recovery, even for previously treated skin-cancer patients. This state-of-the-art treatment uses a microscope to trace and remove skin cancer down to the roots, enabling the dermatologist to see beyond the disease and remove the entire tumor, while leaving the healthy tissue unharmed. This procedure is most often used in treating basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. The cure rate for Mohs micrographic surgery is the highest of all skin-cancer treatments — up to 99 percent.
