We offer you the most advanced perspectives and treatments for medical conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, melasma, keloids and skin cancer to name just a few.

Our cosmetic and laser surgery center is one of the most advanced on the East Coast. So far, we are the only practice in Pennsylvania in general and in the greater Philadelphia and Mainline area in particular that carries the revolutionary Picosure laser for treatment of various pigment related conditions as well as tattoo removal. We also operate several lasers to make hair removal safe in all skin colors, lasers for redness reduction in rosacea, lasers for acne scar treatment, skin tightening and resurfacing, sun spot removal and eradication of overgrown oil glands. We feature miraDry for bothersome underarm sweating and odor – the only non-invasive treatment for removing underarm sweat.

We are one of the largest centers for photodynamic therapy for acne, skin rejuvenation and pore shrinkage in the greater Philadelphia area. You can expect peels for a variety of skin conditions not only for rejuvenation and skin maintenance. Fillers for facial reflation and neurotoxins such as Botox are injected only by our physicians

Let us amaze you. We are easily accessible in the heart of the Mainline, are just a short drive from Center City Philadelphia and offer ample parking or convenient access with public transportation.

I really liked all aspects of my visist. I feel as though I have finally found a dermatologist. She and her staff were willingly to listen and give me their professional opinion and hopefully find a treament that will work longterm.

The doctor was very clear and extremely thorough along with being pleasant. She makes her patients comfortable.

Dr. Ringpfeil took her time and was attentive to my concerns. Writing all options on paper was very helpful and will help me when I start my regimen

#82019-05-11

the dr was much more insightful and knowledgeable than anyone in the past

#92018-11-08

I appreciated that Dr. Ringpfeil took the time to thoroughly explain everything we spoke about. She did not simply provide a professional opinion, she provided her opinion and supplemented it with an explanation that made everything clear to me. I felt like I was listened to and interacted with, rather than just spoken at (which has often been my experience with other dermatologists). Thank you!
