Who should see a dermatologist?

Your skin is your largest organ. A dermatologist helps keep it as healthy as possible. Regular skin checks are valuable in identifying any irregularities that could suggest disease or a problem, such as skin cancer. Early detection is critical in successful treatment.

You should definitely visit Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology if you notice irregular moles, skin growths, or an unusual rash. Dr. Kushner performs a thorough evaluation of your skin from head to toe. She looks in areas that are easy for you to miss, such as your back and buttocks. The sooner you catch issues such as skin cancer, the easier it is to resolve.

What is cosmetic dermatology?

Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology offers a number of cosmetic dermatology services to improve your look. These services are beneficial to your quality of life but aren’t medically necessary.

Services available include:

  • Botox® for wrinkle reduction
  • Juvéderm® dermal fillers to smooth out fine lines and fill in volume loss
  • Microdermabrasion to exfoliate dead skin cells
  • Laser resurfacing to improve texture and tone
  • CoolSculpting® for body contouring and fat reduction
  • Laser hair removal
  • Chemical peels

Skin tag removal, mole excision, and destruction of benign lesions are other cosmetic surgical services the practice offers, too. Talk to the team about your aesthetic goals, and they will develop a customized skin care plan for you.

As experts in cosmetic dermatology, the team has a unique and thorough understanding of the facial anatomy and applies cosmetic injectables and other services expertly – so you look smoother and brighter, rather than like you’ve had “work” done.
