Expertise with Ethnic Skin

Our highly respected dermatologists have extensive experience treating all skin types, including darker skin. Certain skin conditions are more common in darker-skinned people, such as vitiligo and keloid scars, and require a specialized treatment approach. We perform laser hair removal, laser resurfacing and other light therapies on darker-skinned patients.

Cosmetic Treatments

Our team of cosmetic dermatology experts utilize a variety of treatment methods, based off of your unique needs. This includes;

  • Botox injections to improve the appearance of wrinkles
  • Conservative treatments to reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes and other concerns that once required surgical correction
  • Fillers to help restore lost volume in the face and hands
  • Fractional laser resurfacing, which can diminish wrinkles, reduce acne scars, promote a younger appearance and treat a variety of medical conditions — with less pain and a quicker recovery than other types of skin rejuvenation
  • Peels to improve the texture and appearance of skin
  • Pulsed dye laser therapy, which destroys abnormal blood vessels and can reduce the appearance of spider veins, rosacea, some birthmarks and other skin conditions
  • Removal of spider veins, freckles and age spots using the latest laser technology
