For those of you who live in San Francisco, what happened to the warm weather we get in September!!! And for those of you who don’t, we are jealous!
Presidio Dermatology is overhauling some of the ANCIENT prices we have been charging for cosmetic procedures. Click Here
to see the new price list. We have not changed these in a very long time. Blame it on Brexit. Just kidding! We also want all of you to know that we are now charging for cosmetic removals. Insurance companies are NOT paying us. We wish that weren’t true, but it is. Medicare in particular is really cutting back. The charge for skin tags, keratoses, milia and sun spot removal is $150 for 1-3 and $200 for 4-10. Cosmetic removal of moles is $250 and includes pathology. Thanks for understanding!
SO ON TO THE FUN STUFF!
We are slowly dropping Obagi. We have a few items left which we are selling at a discount. We have a great new hydroquinone made by Glytone that costs $70. If you want to avoid hydroquinone (you’re pregnant or nursing as examples) we also carry a very nice brightener that includes glycolic acid and azelaic acid. We are expanding our Skin Ceuticals selection too. And don’t forget that Skin Medica makes some great restorative products for sun-damaged skin. They cost a little more but work really well! We can put an effective package together for you.
SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
We welcome Dr. Dawson full time. She is wonderful and great at medical derm as well as cosmetics.
WE HAVE A PACKAGE FOR YOU!
Many of us want to give our skin a boost this time of year. We suggest a combination of the Glytone brightener in the morning and the Avene Retinaldehyde at night. These products together used over 8 weeks will brighten your skin and make your skin look clearer and smoother. Who doesn’t want that! The package of the two products is $120, a 10% discount now through November 1. Make sure to use a good sunscreen too of course.
ECLIPSE MICRONEEDLING IS HERE!
Do you have fine wrinkles around your mouth or shallow acne scars that have always bothered you? Dr. Camarillo and Dr. Dawson are offering micro needling with the Eclipse proprietary device. The process is simple- a series of very small holes are placed in your skin and as the skin heals it remodels and gets tighter. It takes multiple treatments to get a result. The technology is somewhat similar to FRAXEL, but much less downtime. You will be a little red after each treatment and can wear make up the next day. This can also work great in treating dark pigment- both the pigment women get on their cheeks and forehead from pregnancy and birth control pills and those dark sun spots we accumulate over the summer. To help get rid of this pigment, we apply the powerful lightener Triluma immediately after the micro needling is done. This allows the active ingredients in the Triluma to penetrate. The cost runs between $250-$400 per treatment and the Triluma is a separate expense if you want to treat pigment. From now until December 1 we are providing a complimentary sunscreen on your first micro needling appointment (to make sure you use it!).
LOSE THAT DOUBLE CHIN WITHOUT SURGERY!
Please remember that Dr. Camarillo and Dr. Dawson are offering Kybella too. If you have always hated the little fat pad under your chin, work on it NOW so you are set for the holidays. See the website for more info.
We look forward to seeing you this fall. Try the fall brightening package or the microneedling if you are looking for something new!
