Stanford Dermatology Clinic

The dermatologists at the Stanford Dermatology Clinic are a great resource for learning how to prevent skin, hair, and nail concerns. They can teach you how to protect yourself from the sun to avoid skin cancer, caution you about hairstyles that can contribute to hair loss, and advise you about how to care for your nails to prevent common conditions such as acne or nail fungus.

Our Doctors

Care and Treatment

Treatments

Our dermatologists have expertise in treatment and prevention for all of your general dermatologic needs including all forms of acne, from "blackheads" to cystic acne. Our clinic uses both topical and oral medications as well as procedural modalities such as:

Photodynamic therapy

A technique where special drugs called photosensitizing agents are applied to your skin (for skin cancers) or injected into the bloodstream and then activated with bright blue light.

Phototherapy

Also called light therapy, phototherapy exposes the skin to lasers, LED, fluorescent lamps, and ultraviolet or infrared radiation to treat diseases.  Phototherapy may be used on the whole body or smaller areas.

Excimer laser treatment

A precise laser treatment for treating psoriasis, vitiligo, dermatitis, and other skin conditions without damaging healthy skin; requires shorter and fewer treatments than many other therapies.

Topical therapy with medications

For Patients
