Dr. Hartman and staff were wonderful. My procedure turned out better than I could have ever imagined. They even called to check on me the next day. I will continue to spread the word about the office.

Elizabeth G.

In my teens I began having problems with my skin, as many people do. And after having my daughter I feared that she too would have to go through what I had. But after finding Dr. Hartman I no longer have concerns as to what the future holds for her skin. This doc is by far the best!!!

Electrosurgery

The field of electrosurgery is evolving, and the applications for this technique are rapidly expanding. Incisions done with this technology have less post treatment pain, even when it is used in deep tissue procedures. Reduced blood loss and faster incision times have contributed to a rapid rise in the popularity of this technology.

Dermatologists who stay at the forefront of technological advances have recognized the value of electrosurgery in the treatment of skin conditions. It can destroy skin growths or stop bleeding. It has replaced the use of a scalpel in many procedures including the removal of both malignant and benign …

Pediatric Dermatology

Skin conditions can affect even the most youthful skin, including infants and small children. Skin Wellness Dermatology caters to the dermatology needs of the entire family, including children of all ages. As a child grows and experiences change, so does their skin.

Good skin care begins at an early age with simple sun protection, however sometimes the skin may need extra attention. Many skin conditions are unique to childhood, including molluscum, pityriasis alba, eczema, acne, and many others.

Some of these conditions can be alarming or worrisome, and can not only impact a child’s skin, but also their self-esteem.  The medical providers …

Platelet-Rich Plasma Replacement Therapy

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.

Recent scientific research and technology recognize PRP as an all-natural medical procedure that uses a patient’s own cells and is performed in physician offices for scalp, skin, and hair stimulation.

While the efficacy of the therapy has not been firmly established, many studies are slowly being published on the success of PRP. The safety data, however, are well established.

PRP works by taking advantage of the mesenchymal stem cells, rich in essential and specific growth factors, contained in human blood. It …

Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a treatment that uses a drug, called a photosensitizer, and a particular kind of light.  The photosensitizer, 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA), is applied to the skin and allowed to incubate for duration of 1-3 hours.  Once the skin has properly absorbed the agent, the patient is exposed to a therapeutic light source of a particular wavelength with a blue hue.  For this reason, the treatment is also called Blue Light therapy.

When the area to be treated is exposed to the light, precancerous and cancerous cells are destroyed.  PDT is used for many different dermatologic conditions including actinic …

Skin Cancer Surgery

Skin lesions do not have to be malignant to be concerning. If you have a skin tag, cyst, or other lesion that is causing you distress, the medical professionals at Skin Wellness Dermatology can help you with the appropriate method of removal. Our patients are treated with plans tailored to fit their specific needs. In some situations, the surgical excision of skin lesions will be recommended.

To remove a problematic skin lesion, your board certified dermatologist begins making an outline of the treatment area with a skin-appropriate pen. A small amount of healthy skin is typically included within the margins of …

Mole Removal

Mole Removal

Moles, medically known as nevi, typically appear as small brown spots, but they can be any one of a wide range of colors. They occur when cells, called melanocytes, grow in clusters instead of spreading out. Melanocytes cells are distributed throughout the basal cell layer of the epidermis and form melanin pigment, which gives skin its color.

Moles Are Common

Moles are extremely common skin growths, most adults have from 10 to 40 moles, and they can develop on virtually any part of the body. They may be flat or raised, and nearly color brown, black, pink, red, white, purple, blue, …

Common Dermatologic Conditions

Acne

Most of us believe that acne is a disorder that affects only teenagers. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Controlled by oil glands and hormones, acne can also be influenced by other factors including stress, diet and makeup. After an evaluation and discussion, we’ll classify your acne and start you on a regimen tailored specifically for you. Once a regimen has been chosen, it’s important to note that treating acne is more like a marathon instead of a sprint.

Actinic Keratosis

Actinic Keratoses, or AKs, are better classified as precancers. If left alone to grow without treatment, these lesions have the ability …
