Treatments for Pediatric Dermatology Conditions

Moles

We can evaluate moles using the latest technology, including confocal microscopy.  In some cases, the results of a detailed evaluation may allow you to avoid surgery.

Hemangiomas and other vascular birthmarks

Our specialists treat hemangiomas, port-wine stains and other vascular malformations. The evaluation sometimes includes not only pediatric dermatology, but also pediatric specialists in ophthalmology, ear-nose-throat, cardiology, radiology and hematology. This team meets once a month to talk through patients’ treatment plans.
