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 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

Photodynamic therapy is a precise, patient friendly way to treat

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.
