Why You Should Get Treatments at a Medical Practice

We often hear people ask about why they should visit a medical practice like Alaska Center for Dermatology for cosmetic dermatology procedures and treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, laser treatments, and more. Here are three reasons why you should consider a medical practice instead of a spa:

1. There is a Dermatologist available onsite.

At our state-of-the-art office in Anchorage, there are Board-Certified Dermatologists, Certified Physician Assistants, and a Mohs Surgeon to exercise top-notch personal care and provide you with the best dermatological medical expertise and support. You can be sure that regardless of the cosmetic procedure you are getting, it is performed at the highest level of excellence and in a safe environment.

2. A dermatology practice puts your skin’s health first.

Our patients often mention that when they visit spas, they feel like treatments and recommendations they get are solely focused on their appearance. At Alaska Center for Dermatology, your skin’s health is our primary concern and all recommendations stem from that focus.

Of course, we want all of our patients to look and feel their best in their skin, but we recognize that outward skin conditions can often be a symptom of underlying health issues. That’s why our team works with you to customize solutions based on your skin, your skin care goals, and your overall health and well-being.

3. A medical practice has clinical guidelines that spas don’t have to follow.

As a medical dermatological provider, there are clinical guidelines that Alaska Center for Dermatology follows. Spas don’t have the same guidelines to adhere to, so there is usually less oversight and consistency in visiting one. Some of the most effective treatments require medical clearance as well, which is why having experienced, licensed Providers in a Medical Dermatology setting makes a big difference in your skin care experience.

The expertise level of our Providers is stellar, with ongoing training, extensive skin care knowledge, and a deep understanding of skin conditions and reactions.

Your skin is important, so when you’re spending money to care for it, you want to make sure it’s in the hands of knowledgeable Dermatological Providers. Learn more about Alaska Center for Dermatology’s team here.
