Welcome to my practice! I have served the Austin area since 1995, after completing my service in the US Navy. Austin is my hometown and I am privileged to live and work here. After growing my original solo practice into a large group for over 10 years, I decided to return to a solo setting in 2012. This environment has allowed me and my staff to provide care on a more personal level.
We want to focus on treating our patients, not their disease. This means that we want to know about your life, your habits, diet, family, and all those factors that might combine and interrelate to impact your skin health. If there is a natural way to help you achieve wellness, we will try to find it, rather than simply hand you a prescription and rush you out the door. We find that our patients appreciate this holistic approach, and together, we will try to help you find healing, not just symptom control.
In addition to treating skin rashes, we treat adult acne, skin cancer, moles, and other growths, in addition to offering dermal fillers and Botox. I have had a long interest in skin care, which intersects with my interest in health and wellness. I have written extensively on skin care (see my archived "SkinSense" newsletters tab). I enjoy offering non-invasive rejuvenation techniques, including injectables, lasers, photofacial treatments and mild chemical peels. The goal, always, is to achieve a natural looking result.
We look forward to getting to know you! Call us at (512) 786-3498 for an appointment. Thank you for visiting our site!

Apollo by Tripollar/First in Austin!
Apollo, powered by Tripollar technology, is a third generation radiofrequency device that delivers focused and dense heating to the deep layers of skin without pain, resulting in tightening of collagen (wrinkle reduction and skin tightening.) It can also be used for body tightening and cellulite reduction by heating the subcutaneous fat. A thermal imaging system allows the operator to monitor the level of tissue heating and customize the treatment for either skin tightening or fat reduction. There is no downtime and no pain! Treatments feel like a warm massage. :)
