Advanced Care for Dermatologic Conditions

Ochsner LSU Health Dermatology and Facial Plastics experts offer the latest technology for skin and facial conditions. Our physicians are here to provide compassionate, preventative care for patients, treating all types of skin conditions from infections to skin malignancies with medical, surgical and phototherapeutic procedures. We focus on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of non-cosmetic skin diseases in patients as well as aesthetic services for those looking for cosmetic procedures such as facial plastics, microneedling, laser hair removal and BOTOX®. We offer collaborative services provided by a board-certified dermatologist and a board-certified facial plastic surgeon that specialize in hair, skin and nails. Our team offers a wide variety of aesthetic surgical and non-surgical treatment options to help you feel confident in your skin.

Adults, adolescents and children can have a variety of skin conditions that require treatment. The Dermatology team at Ochsner LSU Health treats everything from acne and psoriasis to rare and complicated conditions like bullous pemphigoid and cutaneous T cell lymphoma. Sometimes skin diseases develop quickly and can lead to detrimental effects for people. As board-certified dermatologists, we have the skills needed to treat difficult skin diseases. We strive to understand how a particular skin condition affects each adult dermatology patient as an individual. This helps us assess the situation, provide the appropriate treatment and ideally help patients reach better quality of life after working with us.
