Injections can create a more youthful appearance by relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles. Most commonly, this treatment is used to reduce crow's feet around the eyes, wrinkles on the forehead, and frown and laugh lines.

Chemical Peels

Are used to rejuvenate the skin's appearance. During this treatment we apply a chemical solution which causes dead skin cells to separate and peel off. This promotes younger-looking skin by peeling away old, sun-damaged skin.

Can easily be performed in the office with minimal discomfort. Various treatment methods are used depending on the color and size of the lesion.


Is a treatment to improve the appearance of small varicose veins or spider veins. This quick in-office procedure involves receiving injections of medication into affected veins. The solution causes the veins to shrink and eventually dissolve, leaving your skin looking beautiful, healthy, and clear.

Mohs Surgery

Dr. Gottesfeld has over 20 years experience in treating all types of skin cancer. He is experienced with all forms of skin cancer surgery. He is a fellow of the American Society for Mohs Surgery. If you have any concerns, it is better to have a specialist to look at your problems sooner rather than later.

Mohs micrographic surgery

is a specialized, highly effective technique for the removal of skin cancer. The procedure was developed in the 1930's by Dr. Frederic Mohs at the University of Wisconsin and is now practiced throughout the world. Mohs surgery differs from other skin cancer treatments in that it permits immediate and complete microscopic examination of the removed cancerous tissue, so that all 'roots' and extension of the cancer can be eliminated. Due to the methodical manner in which the tissue is removed and examined, Mohs surgery has been recognized as the skin cancer treatment with the highest reported cure rate.
