For the past 20 years, seasoned physician Dr. Birgit Toome has spearheaded Appearance Dermatology?s crusade against epidermal antagonists, a devotion that has garnered her multiple years in the Daily Journal's One of the Best listings. Dr. Toome and her team of assistants stay abreast of the latest medical and cosmetic skin treatments, remedying conditions of all kinds. Their arsenal of 13 noninvasive laser devices can resolve a range of epidermal maladies, from acne scars and freckles to unwanted hair and blatantly plagiarized birthmarks.
Though the plaque displayed in his office reads Ancaro Imparo, meaning “I am still learning,” Dr. Glen H. Crawford already boasts an impressive background. After earning his MD at New York University, he interned in general surgery while serving as a captain in the Air Force. As a flight surgeon, the doctor cared for both troops and civilians in the Republic of Korea. Dr. Crawford still believes education is a lifelong commitment, and his philosophy paid off in 2010, when he was named one of Philadelphia Magazine's Top Docs.
Today, the doctor leads a team at the Pennsylvania Center for Dermatology as they provide medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatological services. Medical services screen clients for skin cancer and help treat skin disorders. Versatile lasers remove unwanted hair, veins, scarring, and tattooed-on mug shots from the body. Cosmetic services can smooth out wrinkles or correct sun spots or discoloration with treatments ranging from injectables and fillers to chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
Dr. Ingrid Warmuth’s dermatological specialties dot a spectrum that spans from medical to cosmetic. She helps cure such conditions as adult and adolescent acne, eczema, warts, and psoriasis, and, when necessary, she can perform surgery to quell a skincare issue. On the other hand, she provides treatments that simply improve skin’s appearance: laser tattoo and hair removal, chemical peels to exfoliate and brighten skin, and Botox to relax unwanted wrinkles.
Dr. Harold Farber's technique has been described by some as "artful poetry in motion." It could have something to do with his state-of-the-art equipment?which he uses to assess patients' health and dermal conditions?or the fact that he allays concerns by explaining his every move during treatments.
At Center for Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, he oversees a team of dermatologists who correct issues such as acne, sun damage, and signs of aging. The team follows Dr. Farber's lead by keeping abreast of the latest techniques, be it the sloughing off of dead skin cells through microdermabrasion or the illuminating of complexions with chemical peels or a steady hand with a spotlight.
The doctors at Dermatology Associates of Plymouth Meeting not only address common skin concerns such as acne, eczema, moles, and minor owies, they also help their patients fend off signs of aging with a full roster of medical-caliber cosmetic services. Beauty experts in the aesthetic center use lasers and injectable solutions to take aim at unwanted body hair, spider veins, and wrinkles of every depth and breadth. They also rely on the most current techniques and treatments to rejuvenate the face and keep the birthday suit smooth and youthful, with services that range from vitamin C peels to fat-targeting VelaShape.
Marlene J. Mash, M.D. and her staff know that while beauty may only be skin deep, confidence isn’t. The doctor has spent 20 years performing medical and cosmetic procedures that build her clientele’s self-confidence, ranging from intense pulsed light treatments to eyelid lifts and chemical peels. Regardless of the treatment, the doctor consults with every client to help them decide which, if any, course of action may be taken. Her treatments often continue outside of the office, with skincare products that the doctor prescribes or recommends.
