Frequently Asked Questions About our Arizona Dermatology Services

You likely have many questions about our procedures and what you may expect when you come to our office. Read through our FAQs below to find answers.

Do Fat Reduction Procedures Involve Surgery?

No. Our CoolSculpting treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive treatments that aim to reduce pockets of fat that are difficult to slim down with exercise and diet alone.

Are Your Aesthetic Treatments Safe?

Yes! As we are a practice composed of board-certified dermatologists, you can find several FDA-approved aesthetic treatments here. We would never suggest dubious treatments for our patients.

What Can I Expect During a Skin Exam?

Your dermatologist will inspect your skin from head to toe to determine whether you have any suspicious moles, dry areas, or rashes. If any areas of concern are identified, your doctor may want to watch the area or do a small biopsy to investigate it further.
