Patient Testimonials

-Katie T.

I definitely recommend Dermatology Associates! There was no long wait like at most places. The waiting room and exam room were clean and comfortable, and the staff was super nice. I had to call multiple times after having trouble with the patient portal, and each time I called, they were nice and helpful. Katie made me feel so comfortable. She didn’t try to rush through my appointment to get to the next patient like in some places. She answered all my questions and made me feel so at ease, even with my terrible anxiety. Seriously can’t say enough good things about this place!

-Betty T.

Great experiences on every visit. Short wait in both the waiting room and the exam room. Dr Shipp is generous with samples and advice on saving money on scripts. Everybody from the front office, nurse and check out was kind, friendly and efficient.

Most laser treatments are safe for all skin types, but it's essential to consult with a qualified provider to determine the best treatment option for your skin concerns and skin type. Some lasers may be more suitable for certain skin tones, and your provider can recommend the most appropriate treatment for optimal results.

The level of discomfort during laser treatments varies depending on the individual's pain tolerance and the specific treatment being performed. Many laser procedures involve minimal discomfort, often described as a slight warming or snapping sensation. Your provider can offer numbing creams or cooling techniques to help minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

The number of laser treatment sessions needed varies depending on the individual's skin concerns, treatment goals, and the type of laser being used. Some treatments may require a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results, while others may show immediate improvement after just one treatment. Your provider can create a customized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

While laser treatments are generally safe and well-tolerated, mild side effects such as redness, swelling, or temporary discomfort may occur immediately following the procedure. These side effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days, depending on the treatment performed. Most laser treatments require little to no downtime, allowing you to resume your normal activities shortly after treatment.

Yes, many laser treatments can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance results and address multiple concerns simultaneously. Your provider can recommend complementary treatments or combination approaches to help you achieve your desired aesthetic goals.

The longevity of results from laser treatments varies depending on the individual's skin condition, lifestyle factors, and the specific treatment performed. Some laser procedures offer long-lasting results with proper maintenance and skincare, while others may require periodic touch-up treatments to sustain optimal outcomes. Your provider can offer guidance on how to maintain and prolong the results of your laser treatment.

Yes, many laser treatments can be safely performed on sensitive areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and intimate areas. However, it's essential to discuss any concerns or sensitivities with your provider during the consultation to ensure a safe and comfortable treatment experience.

In most cases, laser treatments for cosmetic purposes are considered elective procedures and are not covered by insurance. However, some laser treatments for medical conditions, such as laser hair removal for excessive hair growth (hirsutism) or laser treatment for vascular lesions, may be partially or fully covered by insurance. It's recommended to check with your insurance provider for specific coverage details.

As a precautionary measure, laser treatments are generally not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding individuals due to the potential risk to the fetus or infant. It's essential to inform your provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before undergoing any laser treatment to ensure the safety of both you and your baby.

Choosing the right laser treatment involves consulting with a qualified provider who can assess your skin concerns, evaluate your skin type and condition, and recommend the most appropriate treatment options. During the consultation, your provider can discuss treatment goals, expectations, and potential risks to help you make an informed decision about which laser treatment is best suited for your needs.
