We are proud to partner with Forefront Dermatology and deliver additional attention to your skin’s health. Our medical director, Dr. Michael Dreifke, is a board-certified dermatologist who helps our team create tailored plans for each patient to deliver the best possible outcomes. This allows our office to elevate our services even further as true skincare specialists.
Whether you’re interested in dermatological services, noninvasive cosmetic treatments, or a combination of the two, we will create a custom treatment plan that serves your unique needs.
Skin tags are benign growths that hang from the skin. They commonly form on areas that experience consistent friction, like the neck, armpits, eyelids, under the breasts, and other areas with skin folds. While not typically harmful, visible skin tags can be frustrating and you may be motivated to seek removal.
Milia are small cysts that can be present at birth, develop over time due to skin damage, or develop due to associated conditions. Milia are caused by keratin becoming trapped beneath the skin’s surface. Milia removal will smooth the skin’s surface and clear these troublesome bumps.
This condition occurs when overactive sebaceous glands produce excess oil that becomes trapped under the skin. The associated bumps can be highly noticeable, especially when the spots are larger in size.
Cherry angiomas are red moles that can develop across the body. They are red because they contain a collection of blood vessels, and typically appear after age 30. If you have cherry angiomas on your face or other noticeable areas of skin, treatment will clear your complexion.
This benign skin growth can be brown, black or tan and look waxy and scaly. While the precise cause isn’t known, seborrheic keratoses can be removed with minimally invasive treatment.
DPN papules are small bumps that can be dark or skin-colored, and can appear in a small group or cover large areas of the skin. These bumps do not fade on their own, but can be treated in our office.
Actinic keratoses are rough patches of skin that develop due to prolonged sun exposure. They typically form on areas most often exposed to UV rays, including the face, forearms, scalp, neck and backs of the hands. If left untreated, there is a chance that an actinic keratosis can develop into skin cancer. We treat actinic keratosis using the Fraxel laser to remove damaged skin.
Spider veins in the legs and elsewhere on the body can be unsightly and sap self-confidence, especially in the summer months when your legs are exposed. We offer both laser vein therapy and sclerotherapy to safely, effectively treat spider veins.
We use a device called a hyfrecator to treat many common skin conditions. This device has been commonly used to cauterize blood after a surgical procedure, but is highly effective on superficial growths. The hyfrecator burns off individual lesions and is appropriate for most individuals. These treatments can also be referred to as cautery or electrocautery treatments.
Treatments are performed by one of our skilled dermatology-trained providers under the supervision of our dermatologist, Dr. Dreifke.
Treatments are performed by one of our skilled dermatology-trained providers under the supervision of our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Michael Dreifke. He is passionate about not only diagnosing and treating traditional dermatologic skin concerns, but also skin aging and rejuvenation.
Most individuals with the conditions listed above are candidates. The major exceptions are pregnant or breastfeeding women, and people with pacemakers as the pacemaker can be shocked during treatment.
Hyfrecator treatments are safe and predictable, and have been in use for many years. There are minimal risks associated with treatment.
We apply numbing cream before the treatment to help keep our patients comfortable and avoid discomfort. There may be some minor discomfort during treatment.
Patients typically see full results within two weeks following treatment. They may benefit from additional treatments depending on their skin. Your provider will let you know what you can likely expect during your consultation.
We do not bill insurance for cosmetic dermatology services. You may be able to use your HSA (Health Savings Account). If you’re unsure whether this is applicable, please check the specifics of your treatment plan or ask a member of our team for assistance.
