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.
For over a quarter-century, Dr. Richard Bonder has helped his patients achieve their aesthetic and skin care goals—something he continues to do without the help of physician's assistants or nurse practitioners. Dr. Bonder performs all treatments himself, including follow-up exams, and places a premium on the punctuality of his appointments. His anti-aging treatments are free of generic Botox substitutes as well as illegally imported Botox.
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. 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.
