Medical Dermatology is our mission. We hold ourselves to the highest standard of medical care, and all providers are highly trained and Board certified. We care about skin health and offer comprehensive services to support skin wellness beyond prescribing medications, such as a customized skincare line and facial treatment services. As part of our mission, we are a site for Clinical Trials, so patients who suffer from skin conditions have access to the newest treatments not yet available to the general public. Put your trust in us so we can help you with your skin condition.

Acne Scarring

We specialize in acne, ranging from mild to severe. Our office carries various medical-grade products that we believe are among the best for helping to clear acne. 

Mole Check

As a full service medical dermatology clinic, we offer full body mole checks. The removal of moles depends on the type and size of the mole.

Psoriasis Treatment

We use the newest and safest topical medications, oral and injectable options are available for moderate to severe psoriasis. We have experience with biologic therapy.


Rosacea is a chronic condition that affects the skin of the face and is categorized by redness and flushing on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and other parts of the face. 

Hair Loss

Losing your hair can feel embarrassing and can cause self-esteem issues. There are multiple treatments available that can help you slow down and/or reverse the hair-loss process.

Medical Consultation

A comprehensive dermatology consultation is the initial step in successfully addressing diverse skin matters, offering individuals personalized care and direction from an expert focused on overall skin well-being.

Acne Cortisone Shot

Cystic acne presents as deep and enduring nodules beneath the skin’s surface. It is common during times of stress or during hormonal cycles.


Isotretinoin, known as Accutane, is a potent oral treatment for severe or scarring acne. As a retinoid, it reduces skin oil production, pore blockage, and inflammation.

Spironolactone for Hormonal Acne

Hormonal acne is a challenging condition to treat, and is generally a long-term issue requiring long-term treatment.

Scalp Cortisone Shot

Cortisone shots for hair loss involve precise injections of corticosteroid medication into the scalp, primarily used for conditions like alopecia areata, characterized by irregular hair thinning.

Intramuscular Cortisone Shot

Intramuscular cortisone shots are a way to address intense inflammatory skin problems in appropriate individuals.

UVB Phototherapy (XTRAC)

We utilize Xtrac as the most effective narrowband UVB device. Narrowband UVB therapy uses a specific UVB light wavelength to treat skin conditions rooted in inflammation and excessive cell turnover.


Acne extractions are a common dermatological procedure focused on removing non-inflamed acne lesions like blackheads and whiteheads.

Cyst Drainage

Cyst drainage, often referred to as cyst aspiration or cyst puncture, constitutes a medical procedure devised to eliminate the contents of a cyst—an encapsulated sac containing either fluid or debris— that can emerge in diverse body areas.

Mole Removal

Mole removal is a common dermatological procedure meant to address both medical concerns and aesthetic preferences.

Skin Shave Biopsy

A skin shave biopsy is a minor surgical procedure involving the removal of a thin layer of skin for microscopic analysis.

Skin Punch Biopsy

Metropolis Dermatology also performs a procedure known as a skin punch biopsy, which involves extracting a small circular piece of skin using a specialized tool, offering a comprehensive tissue sample for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Skin Cancer Excision

Skin cancer excision surgically removes cancerous skin lesions, like basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or melanoma.


Electrodessication, or electrocautery, is a precise medical technique used at Metropolis Dermatology to treat various skin issues like benign growths, skin tags, and seborrheic keratoses.


Medical cryotherapy is different from over-the-counter freezing sprays. Cryotherapy, or cryosurgery, is a medical procedure that employs freezing temperatures to treat various skin irregularities.


Cantharidin, derived from the blister beetle, is a topical medication used to treat specific skin issues like warts, molluscum contagiosum, and certain keratoses.

Cyst Removal

Cyst excision is a surgical procedure aimed at sac-like structures in the skin filled with fluid, debris, or semi-solid material.

Lipoma Removal

Lipomas are benign fatty tumors that are generally not problematic, but when large, can cause some discomfort or cosmetic concerns.
