My areas of particular expertise include

I am qualified in managing the full spectrum of skin concerns at any age. My expertise includes treatment of skin cancers and laser dermatology (scar corrections, wrinkle smoothing and skin rejuvenation, treatment of redness and vascular lesions such as spider nevi, removal of benign lesions, etc.). Here at Aava we use the latest pulse-dye, Nd:Yag, and fractional CO2 laser (combined with radiofrequency) technology. I did my doctoral research on atopic dermatitis in adults.
An individualized treatment program will be designed with your goals in mind. Any further treatments or procedures will therefore be carried out only after a consultation.
If there are several skin concerns or the subject of consultation is a long-term or chronic skin disease, I suggest you to book a 30-minute appointment to ensure sufficient time.
