Pediatric Dermatology

Includes specialty programs: Cosmetic & Reconstructive Laser Program

Featured Image

We offer the only pediatric-focused dermatology program in the greater Akron area - 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 also treat:

  • birthmarks
  • keloid scars
  • melanoma
  • molluscum
  • port-wine stain (capillary malformation)
  • psoriasis
  • unwanted hair growth (hirsutism)
  • vitiligo 

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.
