One of the cornerstones to healthy skin, particularly in patients who have a history of significant sun is regular skin examinations. Our board-certified dermatologists will thoroughly examine your skin and will serially monitor lesions that are of low suspicion for cancer. For lesions which are concerning for skin cancer, a skin biopsy will be performed. You will be offered a concise explanation (complete with photographs) of the ABCDEs of melanoma, along with directions on how to do a monthly skin self-exam.
Acne can have a big impact on patients’ lives and can serve as an unspoken barrier to both social and career advancement. At Massachusetts Dermatology Associates, we take a hard stance against acne and offer a variety of treatments tailored to the particular patient that range from topical treatments to oral treatments and light treatments.

Psoriasis and eczema (atopic dermatitis) are two of the most common “rashes” experienced by humans and serve as examples of how the immune system can cause undesired inflammation. At MassDerm, we offer a wide array of treatments for these conditions including topical treatments, light treatments, and for severe cases of psoriasis, injectable and oral treatments. Read More
The majority of patients with dermatitis (eczema) have what is known as “atopic dermatitis”, an intrinsic allergic disorder (inherited in the patient’s genes) that usually cannot be traced to a particular environmental cause. However, there is an important subset of patients with dermatitis who have an allergy to a substance that comes into contact with their skin. The challenge becomes figuring out the identity of this allergen. At Massachusetts Dermatology Associates we offer one of the most extensive panels of contact allergy testing in the region. If we can uncover the substance precipitating our patient’s allergy, we can help them avoid it in the future and in many cases “cure” their dermatitis. Read More
For patients with psoriasis, eczema (atopic dermatitis), itch, and vitiligo which have not responded to topical therapies, narrowband ultraviolet therapy offers a powerful tool to help improve this conditions. At Massachusetts Dermatology Associates we have three narrowband UVB devices to treat the whole body or individual treatments to hands, feet, scalp, or other focal areas. Phototherapy is best suited for patients who are able to come into clinic at least two to three times per week for short light exposure sessions with our highly trained staff and supervised by our board-certified physicians.
