Dermatology On Your Time

Is there ever a convenient time to address an alarming issue with your skin, hair or nails? Of course not. So why is it commonplace to wait months to see a dermatologist?
Thanks in part to technology, gaining faster access to medical professionals is quite literally changing patient care for the better. Imagine taking a specific picture of a skin, hair or nail issue you are having, uploading it to a dermatologist and receiving a diagnosis, potentially even a prescription, in 24 hours. Well, you don’t have to imagine it—The Skin Center’s Aegean Chan, MD, FAAD – Board Certified Dermatologist is doing just that right now.

With the roll-out of DermDoc Online, you can address a specific skin problem practically in real time. And if Dr. Chan feels it necessary to see you in person, there’s no need to wait months for an appointment. Same-day visits are also a hallmark of first-in-class dermatology at The Skin Center.
“It’s our goal to be a trusted advocate and resource for our patients whether they’re seeing us for routine preventative care, or facing complex skin conditions,” says Dr. Chan. Patients don’t have to wait weeks or months to receive exceptional dermatological care that’s tailored to their unique needs. Dr. Chan treats the full gamut of skin diseases, encompassing skin cancers, pigmented lesions, inflammatory diseases such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and many others ranging from the common to complex.

Medical Dermatology with the Benefits of a Full Medical Spa & Aesthetic Treatments

The Skin Center, the first medical spa in the region, recently celebrated its 35th year. Founded by board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dominic Brandy, MD, The Skin Center boasts four medical spa locations (Mt. Lebanon, Shadyside, Wexford and Columbus, OH), a nationally accredited surgical center, where Dr. Brandy has performed 35,000 elective cosmetic procedures over the years, and both vein and dermatology practices.
The story at each and every Skin Center location is one of compassionate care delivered by clinicians, RNs, PAs and aestheticians who are among the most skilled and highly trained in the industry.
Thanks to customized treatment plans and a myriad of both minimally-invasive technologies and elective cosmetic procedures, looking your best and feeling your most confident is a complimentary consultation away.

Botox & Beyond

Forget what you thought you knew about beauty. First, it is in the eye of the beholder. Second, it’s your face, your body, your lips and the decisions you make about self-improvement are yours alone. If you choose to smooth those wrinkles or plump that pucker, it’s entirely up to you. If you are quite pleased with how you look already, well kudos!

Dr. Brandy
Some people get Botox, some men (and women) get help with hair loss, some women want to get back that pre-baby body, perhaps opting for a breast lift or tummy tuck. Among the crowd who chooses to “have work done”, some are open about it and some are not. The point is: The Skin Center Medical Spa treats those who are open about their treatments, those who are completely hush-hush—and they do it better than anybody in the region.
Frankly, they do it all, too. Dr. Brandy pioneered the QuickLift facelift, takes fat from places you don’t want and adds it to places that you do and much more. The Skin Center is also the #1 medical spa in the region and among the top 10 nationwide. “Whether we are helping patients make little changes or big ones, they want expertise and great results, but they also want honesty and compassion,” says Dr. Brandy.
