At my state-of-the art facilities in Houston and New York City, I offer patients a thorough range of medical and cosmetic dermatology procedures to treat an array of skin conditions and enhance one’s appearance. Additionally, due to my extensive background and training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery, I offer advanced treatment for skin cancer. My practice also provides a full range of dermatology services for conditions such as acne, rosacea, spider veins, and many other conditions.

As a board-certified dermatologist, I am dedicated to achieving superior results while employing only the latest equipment and technology. Complimenting our variety of laser skin resurfacing and skin rejuvenation options, which include the Smoothbeam™, Clear + Brilliant™, and the Vbeam® Perfecta Laser, we also offer Ultherapy™, Thermage®, and minimally-invasive treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® and other Injectables. In addition to facial and skin rejuvenation procedures, our practice can help those looking to enhance their shape and reduce areas of excess fat with non-surgical procedures such as Coolsculpting®.

I encourage you to schedule a consultation with me so we can discuss your treatment options. My goal is to help you attain healthier, more youthful, and more beautiful-looking skin!
