Latest technological advancements

Our adult and pediatric dermatology patients receive comprehensive care using recent advances in dermatology, like:

Photodynamic therapy, which is used to treat cancerous and precancerous skin conditions. A photosensitizer drug is applied to the skin, making cancer cells light-sensitive; this activates the drug, killing the diseased cells.

Phototherapy, which is used to treat eczema by exposing the skin to narrowband ultraviolet B (UVB) light. Light therapy is effective in reducing skin inflammation and irritation, increases Vitamin D, and helps boost your body's ability to fight off skin bacteria.

Vascular laser treatment, which is used to treat birthmarks, broken capillaries, skin redness, rosacea, swollen blood vessels, skin growths, hemangioma, scars, warts, leg veins, red stretch marks and more.
