We’re pleased to partner with IMPACT Melanoma – a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading awareness in hopes of reducing the incidence of melanoma around the country. They provide a variety of educational programs targeting the prevention and early detection of skin cancer and melanoma for both children and adults. One such initiative is the Skinny On Skin Program which is an educational "curriculum" geared towards teaching professionals about spotting suspect moles while they go about their daily work of closely examining skin on a regular basis. Such professional include stylists, estheticians, nail technicians, and other skin professionals.


Acne – the most common skin condition in the United States. It’s a wonder it’s a wonder at all. But alas, clear skin is an important feature to not only teenagers, but also many people struggling to keep their skin clear of the condition. In short, if you’re reeling from the development of acne on your face, rest assured, you’re not alone.


The XTRAC laser works by penetrating the patient’s skin and breaking up the cells that form harmful, unwanted plaques. The treatment is proven to allow long periods of comfort and remission between outbreaks.

The working laser component of the XTRAC concentrates a single band of ultraviolet B (UVB) light ray on the patient’s psoriasis lesions. The ray penetrates the skin and “breaks the DNA of the T cells, which are what have multiplied to create psoriasis plaques. The 308-nm wavelength is found to be the most effective in clearing psoriasis lesions.”


We’re excited to let everyone know that we have a new addition coming soon to the practice! Dr. Stephen Moyer, DO, will begin here at Dermatology & Skin Health on August 1st. His addition will further bolster the growth of our practice, strengthening and adding to the collective service set provided to the organization’s existing patients, as well as opening the door to new people in need of dermatological care.


We’ve recently been nominated for 2017’s “Best of the Seacoast” Poll put on by Seacoast Media Group. If you wouldn’t mind taking a moment to cast a vote for us (under “Best Dermatologist”) at any time during Monday, June 26th and Friday, July 14th, we’d be ever grateful!


As Father’s Day approaches, we thought we’d take a moment to talk about the men in our lives and the importance of not being shy about utilizing the services of a dermatologist. We realize that it may not have anything to do with “being shy” at all. This is certainly anecdotal, but let’s face it, there’s a large percentage of the male populace that probably don’t spend a second thinking about their skin and if there exists potential ailments on their own person.


You remember the bright yellow sunscreen dispensers we’ve been working on getting placed throughout the state and beyond in recent years, right? Of course you do!

If you’re out enjoying your Memorial Day Weekend, and happen to be in or around Newburyport, take notice that you’re likely to see three brand new installs in the downtown area.


Introducing Stephanie Grant, our Clinical Nurse Manager.


At Dermatology and Skin Health, we take great pride in helping do-good causes achieve their goals. This is exactly why we’re pleased to announce our sponsorship to The REAL Ride which is a great socially fueled initiative which has, in part, been planned with some support from our own Physician’s Assistant, Michelle Roy.

The REAL Ride is 5,000 mile, coast-to-coast, bike ride that celebrates the challenge of “the road less traveled.” We’ll explain this more in a second… But, in short (or long depending on how you look at things), for three months, the cyclists of the REAL Ride will cycle across the United States via an unconventional route — a combination of dirt roads, trails, forest tracks, wooded paths, and country roads when avoiding pavement simply isn’t possible.


Have you noticed the recent development of varicose and/or spider veins in your legs lately? Or perhaps it isn’t a recent development and it’s been a condition you’ve been staring at for years now. In either event, there’s a dermatologic solution called Sclerotherapy that aids in the disappearance of these pesky entities.
