After fulfilling his dream of becoming a Doctor of Medicine at Stanford University's School of Medicine in 2002, Duke T. Khuu, MD, F.A.A.D. dreamed again. This time, he would establish his own institution: a haven for patients to relish in his seemingly infinite dermatological knowledge. This dream, like all of Dr. Khuu's dreams, also came true. Today, Khuu Dermatology is a veritable haven for anyone suffering from dermal anomalies, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and unsightly veins. The board-certified dermatologist—alongside his team of registered nurses—immaculately execute a full repertoire of medical and cosmetic skincare procedures, from microdermabrasion facials to cancer screenings. Dr. Khuu also takes care to keep patients fully informed on treatment options, so each patient can achieve their time-reversing skin goals. In his spare time, Dr. Khuu likes to go figure skating.
While the scientific world and natural world are often at odds, the staff at Aesthetic Skin Care Center have found a way for them to exist symbiotically by using technologically advanced treatments and scientifically formulated products to restore the skin's natural beauty. The European-trained, licensed aestheticians address blemishes and signs of aging with services such as IPL sessions or LED-light therapy, and employ the latest permanent-makeup techniques to enhance facial features. With more than 20 years of experience in the skincare industry, the team can also recommend an appropriate, product-based treatment, including a plant-derived Green Peel designed by Dr. Med. Christine Schrammek, to diminish sun damage, scars, and tired-looking skin caused by over-basting the face with turkey jus.
The inviting spa boasts a clean, modern ambience, thanks to white-on-white walls and cabinets, and glass shelves neatly lined with jars and bottles of Vie Collection, Jean D'Arcel, and Phytomer products.

Staffers also stock beauty arsenals with Dermalogica and herbal products to help remedy skin maladies including acne, wrinkles, dryness, and overly cute dimples.
