We recommend and prefer you to make an appointment, especially if you request a certain time or spa therapist. We do accept walk-ins, as available. Demand for appointments can be expected to be high on weekends and around holidays.

There are multiple ways to check what treatment will work the best for you. You can take a look at our treatments, fill in the contact form or give us a call. Our receptionist will help you plan the perfect spa experience, including the best order in which to enjoy your treatments.

There are five basic skin types – normal, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive.

Normal skin is neither too oily nor too dry. Oily skin tends to have a greasy appearance and is prone to acne breakouts. Dry skin tends to have a rough, flaky texture. Combination skin is a mix of dry skin and oily skin.

If your skin flushes when you have spicy food or tends to react negatively to new products, you may have sensitive skin.

In order to thoroughly assess the skin on your face, please remove all makeup prior to your visit.  We will also need to look at the skin on your upper chest and back, so wear a loose fitting shirt or be prepared to undress from the waist up.  

Please bring a list or photo of the products you are currently using, and of anything you have used in the past that did or did not work.  

Your visit is scheduled with enough time for a full body skin exam (including time for biopsies and cryotherapy) or to assess 1-2 skin issues.   We aim to address each issue fully.  If you have multiple skin concerns, it may be necessary to schedule an additional appointment.

Longer procedures, such as cyst removal and cosmetic procedures, will be scheduled for a separate appointment.

Many wonderful skin care products, including physician strength rejuvenation products and exclusive spa products are available at our office.

Acne facials, Epicuren Facials, Emminence Organic Facials and medical strength facials are among the many treatments available.

Our Physician Assistants (PAs) are also Certified. In addition, all of our providers receive many more hours of continuing education every year.

There are many options for treatment of acne scars because there are different types of acne scars depending on the depth and severity of scarring. I strongly suggest you get a consultation to determine the best modality or modalities to reduce the appearance of your scarring. Lasers, chemical peels, micro pen, radiofrequency and ultrasound can all be successfully used in treatment.

You should see a dermatologist immediately if you have areas on your skin that grow or change shape and color, itches or bleeds or would not heal. In addition, you should see your dermatologist immediately if you have areas that ooze fluid or blood, crust or clot over, and then ooze or bleed again as well as any sore that doesn’t heal after 2 two weeks.

We offer appointments Monday through Saturday including lunchtime and evening appointments. In general we can book you an appointment within a day. 

Our Dermatologists diagnose and treat conditions affecting skin, hair, scalp, genitals, nails, lips – anywhere on the surface of the body. can help with.

If you think you’ll need a procedure do let us know when booking the appointment and we’ll do our best to set aside enough time.

We set aside around 20-30 minutes for each appointment. If you have a number of conditions to be treated, or are bringing more than one patient to the appointment then please let us know in advance so we can set aside enough time.

Depending on your specific condition and treatment plan, results may vary. In most cases, acne treatments take 2 to 3 months to see initial results.

We believe in a holistic approach to skin care, including dieting, exercising, lifestyle, and treatments.
