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.
