Dermatology is a specialized field of medicine with a specific focus on treatment for skin conditions. This carries over to the treatment of sweat glands and hair. It can also include cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic dermatology focuses on elective procedures designed to remedy certain imperfections and improve a person’s appearance. This can include treatments and procedures ranging from correcting sun damage and acne scarring to laser hair removal and BOTOX®.

Many spas and hair salons now offer certain cosmetic services such as chemical peels and Microdermabrasion to their clients. But, local and state laws don’t require medical professionals to supervise these procedures.
In contrast, Image Renu Dermatology is home to a staff of extensively-trained and highly-skilled dermatology experts and nurse practitioners who specialize in dermatology. We do this for a living — not as some type of add-on service or option.
We use medical-grade equipment, provide actual medical oversight, and have spent years honing the skills and precision needed to deliver personalized service that best matches each patient’s unique needs and look. What does this mean? We know what approach is needed after carefully analyzing each patient and their situation. We can also determine the extent of what’s needed for that person. We don’t operate off impulse or uninformed risk.
Ultimately, we’ll help you correct and enhance your natural look, ensuring a result you’re comfortable and confident with!

Yearly screenings can help catch issues before they become worse. It’s important to have these screenings as recommended for your peace of mind and to ensure timely treatment, if needed.
If you do notice an abnormal spot on your skin in between your annual exams, it’s crucial that you schedule an appointment as soon as possible to get it checked out. Don’t wait!
New abnormalities on your skin or a certain spot are a major sign you need a screening, regardless of how extensive the abnormality is.
Don’t disregard or ignore changes to the color or texture of a spot on your skin, no matter how small it may seem. Make an appointment with us immediately so we can check it out.
