About Us

We work individually with each patient to evaluate and treat dermatologic conditions and to design personalized skin care treatments.

Your skin is your body's largest organ and it never stops taking care of you. It protects your other organs, warms you up and cools you down, and reflects how healthy you are inside. For all it does for you, it deserves the expert care of a medical specialist to keep it healthy, and looking healthy, throughout your lifetime.

At Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center, we are dedicated to the health and beauty of your skin. Our goal is to offer our patients the latest and best options for treatment of their skin while providing the highest level of care. Using state-of-the art technologies, our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Hearth, is uniquely trained and skilled to treat all conditions related to skin.

We are a broad-based medical practice that encompasses all aspects of skin care and treatment, including medical dermatology, cosmetic dermatology and laser surgery...all performed in a discreet, comfortable setting.

Our mission is to incorporate the latest advances of science with the passion of artistic techniques. We believe the difference between ordinary and extraordinary results begins with exceptional training, comprehensive experience and a compassionate commitment to your overall well-being.
