Many patients may question whether it is really necessary to go to a board-certified dermatologist for their skin needs. Lots of cosmetic procedures are offered at “skin clinics” and “medi-spas,” but often these facilities do not have a medical doctor associated with the practice. Even though cosmetic treatments are intended to provide cosmetic improvements, they are still significant medical procedures which often involve invasive damage to the patient’s skin. Any unexpected abnormal reactions or complications that a patient may experience can be immediately addressed by Dr. Stewart. These same complications that may occur at the local “skin clinics”are referred to Dr. Stewart or other certified dermatologists, but there can be significant delay, which is totally avoided if the patient is treated by a board-certified dermatologist.
Dr. Stewart has many years of experience providing safe and effective treatments for her patients’ skin needs, both medical and cosmetic. If you have a skin condition or would like to learn more about cosmetic options, call the office for a consultation today.
