My "real medicine" approach to dermatology combines the latest scientific advances with the clinical art of medicine to treat you and your family. In keeping with this philosophy, I only recommend products and treatments with a proven track record of success… not the "technique of the week", and this is also the basis of my new skin care line.
Like the personalized care I provide, treating my patients as I would friends and family, I have a less is more approach - balanced, rather than extremes. I’m not happy until you are and with this in mind, I have developed these effective, results-oriented products to improve the health, appearance, and feel of your skin. I hope you love them as much as we do!
