botox is a purified protein derivative that can very effectively soften the fine lines and wrinkles that appear when you smile, frown, or laugh. those lines between your eyebrows, across your forehead, and around your eyes can be treated effectively without surgery. a session of careful fine injections will smooth those wrinkles, giving you a younger and more relaxed appearance. botox has other uses, too, such as reducing chin dimples, neck lines, and excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis) in the hands and armpits.
current techniques have increased the proportion of patients who can be helped by hair transplants while at the same time producing far more natural looking results than those of the past. in modern hair transplanting, grafts are prepared from a strip of donor area skin that is sectioned under various types of magnification into whatever kind of graft or grafts that are required. the donor site is sutured closed and produces a hairless scar.

acne isn't caused by bad hygiene, oily foods, or chocolate. it's a genetic disease, often triggered by the hormones of adolescence, that causes follicles in the skin to get plugged and then infected. the dermatology group's physicians are very experienced in treating even the most severe, stubborn cases of acne. unlike drugstore or "infomercial" remedies, our treatment plans are customized for your specific condition and lifestyle. topical treatments are effective for mild cases, opening up the plugged follicles, killing bacteria, and removing excess oil. however, these surface treatments don't eliminate the root cause.
the dermatology group provides comprehensive treatment for a broad range of skin problems, from rashes to skin cancer. in this setting, a correct dermatological diagnosis is the basis for the most specific and effective therapies. we assure the success of this goal by having an in-house dermatopathology service, directed by marcelo g. horenstein, m.d., a nationally and internationally renowned expert in dermatopathological sciences.
Dr. Daniel Groisser founded The Dermatology Group in 1992 to bring a new level of patient care to dermatology. As both internist and dermatologist, Dr. Groisser has treated patients at such prestigious medical centers as the Mount Sinai Medical Center, The Sloan Kettering Memorial Cancer Center, The New York Hospital, and The University of Michigan Medical Center. Dr. Groisser was determined to bring that same level of care to dermatology patients in a private practice. The Dermatology Group offers a unique combination of breadth, experience, and research activity usually found only in university health centers.
