We are the newest dermatology practice in Lexington, but that’s not all that is different about us. Unlike other dermatology practices, at Skin MD, you will see a board-certified Dermatologist at EVERY visit. We think the detection of skin cancer, the treatment of skin disease, and cosmetic treatments of the skin should be done by a Dermatologist. The health of your skin is too important to be left to anyone else.
We offer general dermatology care, such as mole checks, and the treatment of acne, rashes, and skin cancer. Our surgical services include surgical removal of benign and cancerous skin growths, Mohs Micrographic surgery for certain skin cancers, and surgical repair of wounds and reconstruction. Microscopic diagnosis of skin disease (dermatopathology) is performed in our office. We perform many cosmetic procedures including botulinum toxin injections, dermal filler injections, chemical peels, removal of unsightly skin growths, and treatment of hair loss. Certain diseases of the ears, nose, and throat can be treated by Dr. Pruden, who is an Otolaryngologist (ENT) as well as a Dermatologist.
Medical care is increasingly complex, and we recognize that coordinating your care with other health care providers is essential for the best outcome.
We are committed to seeing patients with urgent problems quickly. Same day appointments can be made available when needed.
We strive to treat every patient with the kindness we would want for ourselves and our own families. Going to the doctor can be stressful, but we want your visit to be a positive experience.
Our highly trained physician is up to date with the latest medical knowledge.
