Q&A

Please give a brief description of your practice.

“We have a unique and extraordinary team at El Segundo Dermatology. In this collaborative new practice, we offer top-notch medical care and surgical expertise in skin cancer, combined with all the latest technologies in skin care creating a comprehensive center of excellence in dermatology.

     As board-certified dermatologists, the focus of our practice is in the treatment and prevention of skin disease, including on-site Mohs micrographic surgery for the removal of skin cancer. Beyond this, we have some of the most exciting technologies in body contouring, tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation, as well as a consultation area for access to high quality skin care products.”

 

What’s most rewarding about your work?

“We can all agree that a smile on the face of a happy patient is the greatest reward. Unlike other medical disorders, skin disease is on the outside for everyone to see, which can create a heavy psychosocial burden for the patient. Being able to manage and improve these conditions can be life-changing for patients.”

 

What does the future hold for your practice?

“Skin care has evolved tremendously in recent years with patients looking to their dermatologist for much more than a prescription or a skin check. We hope to be a fully integrative practice, providing state-of-the-art skin care all the way from traditional dermatology and skin cancer treatments to nutritional supplements and facial and body contouring procedures. We are also eager to become an integral part of the community, and are particularly excited to be at the new Elevon campus, opening in early 2016.”

Shared Tip


Friends as well as colleagues, we all reside right here in the South Bay and practice what we preach every day by enjoying a healthy outdoor lifestyle while staying safe in the sun. Lots of sunscreen and SPF clothing protect us and our families. We know we’ve made an impact when our kids don’t battle us to put their swim shirts on! Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. With one in five Americans developing skin cancer during their lifetime, we recommend annual skin cancer screenings for almost everyone. Essentially all skin cancer can be cured if detected early, and an annual skin cancer screening is the best way to find them at an early stage. Skin cancer screenings are painless and truly lifesaving, so don’t delay. Make your appointment today!

Before & After


Dermatologists have long been experts in tattoo removal, but we always thought there had to be a better, quicker way to remove tattoos. Finally, it’s here: the PicoSure. By delivering ultra-short pulses of energy, the PicoSure removes tattoos in half the time of traditional lasers. We are excited to be the only dermatology practice in the South Bay to offer this cutting-edge technology!
