Overview

We offer the only pediatric-focused dermatology program in the greater Akron area and one of only a few programs in Ohio. We are specially trained to diagnose and treat infants, children and teens with a range of skin, hair and nail conditions - from acne, eczema and warts to more complex genetic skin disorders and vascular malformations.

We have one focus: kids.

We are dedicated to helping you and your child better understand skin ailments and how to treat and cope with them. Among the many conditions we treat are:

  • acne
  • atopic dermatitis (eczema)
  • birthmarks
  • keloid scars
  • melanoma
  • molluscum
  • pot-wine stain (capillary malformation)
  • psoriasis
  • unwanted hair growth (hirsutism)
  • vitiligo 
  • warts

 

Vascular Anomalies Clinic.

Our vascular anomalies clinic includes pediatric specialists in dermatology, plastic and reconstructive surgery and interventional radiology. Together, we address the complex needs of children with vascular birthmarks, hemangiomas and other vascular malformations.

Treatments

We offer the most advanced treatments to give your child the best possible results, including many non-invasive procedures such as:

  • Laser treatment of vascular birthmarks and warts
  • Cryotherapy to remove warts and other non-cancerous skin lesions
  • Treatment of keloid scars
  • Candida antigen injections for the treatment of warts or molluscum
  • Laser hair reduction
  • Phototherapy, also known as light therapy, for atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, vitiligo and other inflammatory skin diseases

We also offer skin biopsy and the surgical removal of skin lesions, and work closely with pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeons to treat children with certain types of birthmarks and other pigmented skin lesions.
