Cosmetic Dermatology

We understand the intricate link between health and beauty. You live in your skin, and you deserve to show your best face to the world. We’re committed to helping you reveal the beauty of healthy skin with our results-oriented care and treatment. 

Dr. Tzu personally performs all cosmetic dermatology treatments. Your care begins with a consultation where we determine which of our cosmetic treatments is best for you.

Acne Scar Treatment

We offer laser and surgical treatments for acne scars, including: 

  • Acne scar subcision for inverted scars
  • Microneedling for mild surface scarring and textural irregularities
  • Laser scar treatment to remove fine blood vessels and improve skin texture
  • Punch excision for deep, isolated scars

Each of these treatments uses different techniques to break up scar tissue and achieve the look of smooth, clear skin.

Scar Revision

Scars related to accidents, surgery, or trauma can have an impact on your mental health. Our scar revision treatments can help fade or eliminate these scars. 

Available treatments include:

  • Surgical scar revision for unsightly post-operative scars
  • Laser scar treatment is a non-invasive treatment for newer, red scars 
  • Microneedling to even out discoloration and texture differences from older white scars
  • Keloid injections for keloid scars, which form from an overgrowth of scar tissue after the wound has healed

Botox

Botox is a minimally invasive solution to reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Derived from the botulinum toxin type A, it blocks the nerve impulses that cause muscle movements leading to creases and lines in the skin. Reducing these muscles’ ability to contract smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles. 

This treatment is most often used for treating crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and bunny lines—the lines that appear at the corners of your nose when you scrunch up your face. 

Botox is a fast, simple procedure that’s almost pain-free and requires no recovery time. The results usually last for three months.

Mole Removal

We choose a specific mole removal technique for each patient based on the appearance of the mole and the goals of the patient. The treatments we offer include: 

  • Surgical shave removal to sculpt moles down and blend them in with the surrounding skin 
  • Surgical excision to remove larger, deeper moles 
  • Laser removal for superficial moles—this is the most rarely used procedure

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment is appropriate for treating redness, red spots, broken blood vessels, acne, rosacea, tattoos, discoloration, brown spots, melasma, scars, acne scars, and early stretch marks.

Lasers work by targeting specific structures in the skin, so different lasers and settings will be used depending on the patient’s skin color, medical history, and the skin condition being addressed. 

We recommend a thorough consultation before laser treatment.

Medical Dermatology

We know your health and well-being are thoroughly intertwined, and we seek to help you achieve the best outcome with the safest measures possible. Each medical procedure is performed with the highest level of precision and care, and we tailor your treatment to your specific skin concerns and needs to help you achieve the best outcomes.

Acne Injections

Acne is a common skin concern, ranging from mild to more serious. Chronic, severe acne can lead to scarring and discoloration. Acne injections can instantly spot treat problematic cystic acne lesions and reduce scarring. 

A small amount of steroid is injected directly into the acne nodule during the procedure. Steroids have anti-inflammatory properties that help clear up acne faster and more completely than it would on its own.

Biopsies

At Wall Street Dermatology, we treat various types of skin cancer, and a biopsy is the first step towards diagnosing skin cancer. During a biopsy, we take a small skin sample from the affected area and test it to determine a diagnosis. 

Once we know whether cancer is present and what kind it is, we can develop a treatment plan to help the patient recover as quickly and completely as possible.

Skin Cancer Surgery

Surgery is an effective way to treat skin cancer by removing it from the body. While other treatments may coincide with surgery, rest assured that our surgical teams are experienced, skilled, compassionate individuals who value precision and our patients’ well-being. 

The surgical procedure used largely depends on the diagnosis and will be determined after the completion of a medical assessment.

I saw Dr Tzu for a scar revision in my face and she did an amazing job! Just a week later and I barely have a scar. Her stitching technique is a work of art! Totally recommend her.

I have significant acne scarring and have tried everything… but none of these approaches have been effective. I had subcision with fillers with Dr. Tzu, and I’m so happy with the results already. Even more, Dr. Tzu took time to get to know me and my concerns and answer questions… Dr. Tzu is really the best of the best, and I highly recommend her.
