Full body Skin Exams

Did you know that the #1 most common cancer in humans is skin cancer? 1 in 5 Americans develops skin cancer in their lifetime, and it can develop at any age, from your childhood or teen years to your senior years.

The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends that everyone sees their physician every year for a professional skin exam. The exception is if you have a recent history of skin cancer. Then skin cancer screenings should be done every six months.
 
Dr. Downes specializes in skin cancer screenings. By having a head-to-toe skin exam performed regularly, pre-cancerous lesions, melanoma, and other skin cancers can be found in time before they have a chance to grow into a bigger problem.

General Dermatology

Your skin, hair and nails make up your largest organ. They are always on display for everyone to see. So, it's no wonder that when they aren't in tip-top shape we may not look or feel our best.

Our office treats patients of all ages, from infants to seniors, for a multitude of conditions including acne, rashes, warts, skin cancer, age spots, hair loss, and nail diseases.

Patient care is never handed off to a less-experienced associate, such as a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. Dr. Downes examines every patient herself, gives her full attention and expertise, and tailors a treatment plan that is unique to each individual.

Cosmetic Dermatology

What does it mean to age gracefully? To every person it means something different. What it certainly doesn't mean is giving up and letting ourselves go. Some people maintain a healthy, glowing complexion by using doctor-prescribed skin care products at home. While others get regular laser treatments plus Botox or dermal filler injections to clear away age spots and diminish facial lines.

No matter what you choose, the important thing is that it looks completely natural and you feel and look like your natural self! Every person is unique, and Dr. Downes creates a different anti-aging plan for each individual. She performs all cosmetic and laser procedures herself and does not hand these procedures off to a less-experienced associate.
