  • Moles: Have moles checked for signs of health conditions and remove or minimize them.
  • Eczema and Psoriasis: Get relief from chronic itching, flaking, and dryness.
  • Precancerous lesions: Identify and freeze actinic keratosis and/or provide medication to reduce or eliminate.
  • Rashes: Treat contact dermatitis at the source and relieve any symptoms it causes.
  • Skin Tags: Small noncancerous growth that can be removed when they cause discomfort or for cosmetic reasons.
  • Warts: Remove unwanted warts with quick and minimally invasive treatments.

Our team is happy to discuss any other skin concerns you may have as well, from infections to birthmarks and more. We can use our multiple laser modalities, not covered by insurance, to remove toe fungus, precancers, sebaceous hyperplasia (swollen oil glands), hemangiomas, facial veins, excessive sweating, and warts.

If you are primarily concerned with improving your skin’s overall appearance, your best solution may be one of the many cosmetic treatments available on our menu of med spa services.

Annual Checks & Skin Cancer Screenings

Annual skin exams are an important part of keeping your skin healthy and catching concerns early. During these checks, we examine moles on your face and body to screen for signs of skin cancer.

When needed, we perform biopsies and send samples to dermatopathologists to make sure you get an accurate and helpful diagnosis. This can often be done via shave biopsy, which causes as little damage to your skin’s cosmetic appearance as possible.
