Skin CancerSkin cancer is a cancer that starts in the skin. Some other types of cancer start in other parts of the body and can spread to the skin, but these are not skin cancers. There are 2 main types of skin cancers: keratinocyte cancers (basal and squamous cell skin cancers) and melanomas. Basal and squamous (skway-mus) cell skin cancers are by far the most common cancers of the skin. They start in cells called keratinocytes (kuh-rat-in-o-sites), the most common cells in the skin. Melanomas (mel-uh-NO-muhs) are cancers that develop from melanocytes (mel-an-o-sites), the cells that make the brown pigment that gives skin its color. Melanocytes can also form benign ([be-nine] non-cancerous) growths called moles. There are other types of skin cancers as well, but they are much less common: Merkel cell carcinoma Kaposi sarcoma Cutaneous (skin) lymphoma Skin adnexal tumors (tumors that start in hair follicles or skin glands) Various types of sarcomas Together, these types account for less than 1% of all skin cancers. It’s important for doctors to tell these types of skin cancer apart, because they are treated differently. It’s also important for you to know what skin cancers look like. This may help you find them at the earliest possible stage, when they are cured most easily.

Chemical PeelsIlluminize Peel: The Illuminize Peel is a medical grade chemical peel which delivers a nice "glow" to the skin immediately. This mild peel exfoliates dead skin cells. The result is a quick pick-me-up for your skin with minimal to no downtime. This peel is ideal for individuals who want something more invasive than a facial but don't want the downtime of significant peeling.

Our physicians and staff research and personally test each and every product we carry, selecting only the best products from each line. Our products work individually or in conjunction with our cosmetic and medical services, in order to make your skin healthier.
PsoriasisPsoriasis is commonly mistaken as "just a skin condition." But it's actually a chronic (long-lasting) disease of the immune system. While the exact cause of psoriasis is unknown, scientists believe the immune system mistakenly activates a reaction in the skin cells, which speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells. Plaque psoriasis, the most common form of psoriasis, causes itchy skin spots, red patches, and thick flaky lesions to form.
