Dermatology

At Ingalls

The dermatologists at Ingalls collaborate with your primary care physician to evaluate problems of the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. They offer general, surgical and cosmetic dermatology in addition to:

  • Photochemotherapy for atopic dermatitis (PUVA) - PUVA is a combination of ultraviolet light therapy and a medication which makes the skin more sensitive to the ultraviolet light. This treatment can be effective for a severe inflammation of the skin called atopic dermatitis.
  • Products to protect and preserve your appearance.
  • Skin cancer screenings.

Recent breakthroughs

  • Intense pulsed light procedures - a therapy that uses high intensity pulses of light to penetrate the skin and erase skin damage, without disrupting the skin surface. It simultaneously treats a wide range of facial problems to improve texture and complexion.
  • Botox - the newest form of plastic surgery in which injections paralyze the muscles in the forehead to reduce the appear- ance of wrinkles.
  • Hair removal.
