As the name suggests, A.G.I. Dental and Medical Center conveniently combines dentistry and internal medicine under one roof. Our Medical Director, Dr. Andy Mencia, MD, CMD, believes in treating patients for a full spectrum of bodily concerns, such as diabetes management, hormonal imbalances, and cholesterol. Dr. Rosemary Baghdassarian-Mencia, DDS, helps maintain and improve oral health with routine checkups, cosmetic procedures, dental implants and sleep apnea devices.
Combining the professional expertise of board-certified dermatologists and certified aestheticians, Boynton Beach Skin helps protect complexions both medically and aesthetically. The center offers a wide range of general dermatology services, such as rash treatments, total-body screenings, and skin-cancer surgery. During skin-cancer screenings, the dermatologists help stop harmful growths before they start by spotting subtle changes in their clients' skin, hair, and nails. Certified aesthetician Denise, meanwhile, works closely with the physicians to treat her clients' beauty concerns through custom facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments that ease signs of aging while helping the skin repair itself.
When you see the aesthetician at Palm Beach Dermatology Group, you can be sure you're seeing someone who has extensive knowledge about various skincare conditions. The aesthetician works closely with the practice's five board-certified dermatologists, who oversee everything from chemical peels to microdermabrasion. Some treatments the doctors perform themselves, including skin resurfacing with fractional lasers.
This is an energetically based, sacred healing space," says Dr. Laura Skellchock, describing the aura of Integrative Dermatology. "That's what I wanted to create– and you can feel it when you come in." Dr. Skellchock combines the methods of general dermatology and cosmetic dermatology at this serene boutique clinic, relying on more than 20 years of skin expertise as she combats everything from acne, to wrinkles, to stuck-on Halloween masks. She has a sharp eye for catching lesions before they morph into melanomas, using a sophisticated dermatoscope to spot irregularities too small to be seen by the unaided eye.
The medical practice treats the widest variety of skin conditions from acne to psoriasis. Most importantly, we recognize, diagnose and treat skin cancers, looking to catch them before they become life-threatening. Although the practice is highly cosmetic, the doctors Hecker believe that annual skin examinations are a must
Lifetree Clinic's licensed acupuncturist, Junghyun Park, attempts to take some of the mystery out of acupuncture by thoroughly answering questions about the ancient practice on his website. He explains in depth how most clients feel while he is inserting the hair-thin needles, as well as how they feel after the needles have been in for a while. Instead of guaranteeing that acupuncture can solve any ailment, Park explains that, like Western medicine treatments and pleated pants, acupuncture may not work for everyone.
In addition to using acupuncture—which can alleviate problems such as digestive disorders, lower-back pain, and facial wrinkles—Park also relies on Chinese herbs, tui na massage, and cupping to improve health.
