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.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

I had an appointment for a consulation for sun damage. Unfortunately, I need to see either a doctor or PA for my issue and this was not included in my appointment, so I need to make another trip. It is difficult for me to carve time out of my work day to take care of personal needs, so this is creating an inconvenience for me. I would have preferred to had the complete consultation done in one appointment.

#12011-02-14 14:14:53

I am a little annoyed that I called to say I was on my way and I was told that I may not get here in time and will probably have to reschedule. Then when I got here, I filled out the paperwork then had to wait 20 minutes to be seen. It would be nice to know the receptionist's name so I know who I am calling when I have questions. It would be nice to have WiFi available during the wait.

#22011-06-22 17:06:20

everything was great, i don't have any suggestions

#32010-10-25 11:08:34

#52010-09-30 09:51:55

Well basically there is no need because your doing a very good job.

#62010-10-04 16:54:13

Maybe directions as "across from the Lexus place." Have the assistant say there may be a name recall test later, as she introduces herself.

When making the initial appointment and then calling to try to get it moved up (our of fear that I had a melanoma), I didn't think that one of the booking person(s) was particularly helpful or reassuring.
