Age Spot Removal

cosmetic cryotherapyCosmetic Cryotherapy

Small, rough bumps that slowly thicken and get a warty surface are known as seborrheic keratoses. These common skin growths are benign but unsightly. Serborrehic keratoses and brown spots from excessive sun exposure are easily removed with cosmetic cryotherapy. This in-office treatment uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the growth and cause it to fall off.


Chemical Peels

Sun damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin color, and superficial scarring can be significantly improved with chemical peels. These non-invasive procedures produce smoother skin texture, more even skin color, and a healthy glow after a few treatments.

Chemical peels can also be used as a supplement to the treatment of stubborn acne. Chemical peels temporarily unclog pores and reduce inflamed acne bumps, resulting in smoother, clearer skin.

SSDP offers the following Chemical Peels for the treatment of photoaging and acne.

  • Vitalize Peel™
  • Glytone Peel System®

V-Beam Laser Treatment

The V-Beam Laser reduces facial redness and/or broken blood vessels commonly caused by rosacea and/or chronic sun damage. It also may be used for treatment of red acne scars and marks, removal of common benign overgrowths of blood vessels (angiomas), reduction of brown spots (lentigines), and removal of red discoloration on the sides of the neck from overexposure to the sun.  Treatment with the V-Beam Laser takes only minutes and side effects are few. Surrounding skin is undamaged while targeted lesions are often removed in just a few treatments. Treatment with the V-Beam Laser is provided by all of the SSDP dermatologists.


Cosmetic Electrocautery

Small keratoses (benign wart-like growths), Dematosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN) (small, soft brown raised lesions that occur on the face and neck of people of African, Latin, Indian, or Asian descent), and sebaceous hyperplasia (enlargement of oil glands producing small, yellow bumps on the face) may be removed with electrocautery. A tiny electric needle gently burns away the targeted lesions while leaving normal skin unharmed.

    Dr. Ritt treated my acne with excellent results. He was patient, understanding and restored my confidence. I would totally recommend seeing him!
  • Patient treated with Blu-U® Light

    Not only have I not had any more areas of concern show up on my face, but all of the old slightly colored/ blemished (areas) from previous treatments have disappeared.
  • Patient of Dr. Amy Chang

    Dr. Chang has spotted things I didn't even know I had. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the best dermatologist.
  • Patient of Dr. Shroff-Mehta

    Dr. Shroff-Mehta is a fine physician and good friend. She takes a genuine interest in her patients, provides a sense of confidence and displays a clear message of competence. I would highly recommend her.
  • Patient treated with Blu-U® Light

    My complexion was really improved and I looked better and younger than before.
  • Longtime SSDP patient

    I always like coming to see Dr. Briceno. I always feel better when I leave and I have full confidence in her abilities.
  • Patient of Dr. Jay Ritt

    At my first-ever total skin check in 2005, Dr. Ritt discovered a mole in the crease at the back of my knee that turned out to be a melanoma. It was diagnosed at an early stage and successfully excised. I would never have recognized this mole as being a problem because of the location. Now my husband, five children and I schedule yearly skin checks with Dr. Ritt.
  • Patient treated for squamous cell carcinoma

    Dr. Chang has treated me for numerous pre-cancerous growths and she discovered a tiny growth that turned out to be a squamous cell carcinoma. I am so grateful that Dr. Chang is so thorough.
  • Patient of Dr. Shroff-Mehta

    In today’s world of rushed health care and the unwillingness of most doctors to listen, Dr. Shroff-Mehta is one of a kind, and anyone who sees her is lucky to be her patient.
  • Long-time patient of Dr. Leera M. Briceno

    I have been in the care of Dr. Leera Briceno for some years. I have confidence in her diagnosis and treatment, and her calm, caring response to questions removes anxiety and concern. I deeply appreciate her presence in my health care.
