Sunscreen

Safety in the summertime is very important!

  • Infants under six months old should avoid direct sun exposure when possible and wear protective clothing such as a hat and sunglasses.
  • Children over six months old can use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher when in direct sunlight.
  • Choose a water resistant, hypoallergenic sunscreen. Make sure to apply the sunscreen at least thirty minutes prior to sun exposure and continue to reapply every 2-3 hours.

Wart Removal

Painless Wart Removal!

We have a new procedure for the removal of warts and molluscum that is virtually painless. The CryoProbe is a pen-like instrument that is very accurate and does not damage the surrounding tissue which results in minimal to no discomfort for the patient.

The Cryoprobe can be used on all types of warts, including plantar warts as well as molluscum.
