"Before beginning this review, I took time to read several of the reviews posted. A very mixed bag of issues and emotions. Well, here is why I gave this group of working professionals a "5 STAR" rating. I was referred to Summerlin Dermatology by my so called medical PCP. I had concern about a mole like growth on my back which appeared to be getting larger. I was concerned it could be cancerous. I received a call from Summerlin Dermatology on 9/26/2018 regarding this referral. It seemed they had a cancellation for that day and asked if this was convenient for me. Yep. Sure was. However, I told the young lady on the phone, Daisy, I didn't want to sit there filling out new patient paperwork. She explained their website with the on-line forms was down at the time and offered to email me the forms to complete before I arrived. She was so upbeat and professional. When I arrived for my appointment (with my completed paperwork) I was greeted by, not one, but two front office staffers, Jose and Desiree. They were professional with a smile. Again, upbeat. I signed in and waited about 10-15 minutes before I was taken into the examining room. During my wait time I had the opportunity to chat with each of these individuals. Very professional, yet not "starchy" if you know what I mean. Real people with a job to do the best they can. I met with Dr. Aspacio and his assistant. I felt at ease with both. I told the doctor why I was there. Doctor Aspacio examined the mole growth. Then asked me for my cell phone. He took a picture of this mole on my back. It was not easy for me to see since it was on my back. He showed me the picture and explained that it was typical of getting older. Such moles are common at "our age". I laughed. He even showed me a couple of areas where he has developed similar moles. He made me feel at ease. I was sooo relieved. I have lived in Las Vegas for 43 years. I am 67 years old with Medicare insurance. If you want to experience REALLY BAD medical treatment just wait until you become a senior and on Medicare! I thank heaven that Summerlin Dermatology was an outside referral and NOT part of my primary care network!! I haven't seen my PCP in 2 years! All I see are PAC's or a Nurse Practitioner! Summerlin Dermatology, in my experience/opinion, is only 1 of 3 local medical facilities with whom I would consider professional, to the point and personable. I would recommend them highly!!!"- L.H. / Yelp / Sep 27, 2018
"Very knowledgeable professional and detailed. The staff is very attentive and the doctor was incredibly informative taking the time to make sure I understood the procedure. When the results came in he recommended a plastic surgeon to do the surgery. I really felt very confident in the diagnosis and appreciated everyone's help."- S.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
Getting laser acne treatments are usually reserved for patients who have really hard to treat acne, which has previously been treated with oral and topical medications with no relief. These patients may exhibit skin damage from their acne blemishes with scars (pitting) and discoloration. Skin with severe acne will change the texture and tone of the skin, which may modify it to feel rough and look uneven. Patients with chronic acne may have unbalanced hormones or had really bad outbreaks during pregnancy when hormones levels varied.
We will welcome you to our office and escort you to one of our private laser treatment rooms. Your skin will be prepped for the laser treatment, which may last about 20 minutes total. With our handheld laser device, we have the ability to cover a greater surface area and treat multiple issues in the same session. You will wear protective wear over your eyes. The NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) heat and SmartScan™ technology will deliver heat through the layers of the skin's surface and cause micro-injuries to the skin. Your body will react to this proactively and try to heal the wounds with healthy, new cells that will rejuvenate the skin naturally.
What to Expect
This technique has very little downtime. For best results, it is not recommended that you wear cosmetics on your skin for at least 24 hours. However, laser acne treatment will not keep you away from any of your daily activities. You may see some post-treatment redness and minor irritation to your skin. You can also expect to have repeat sessions, but it will depend on your treatment plan. Typically, patients return every 4 – 6 weeks for 3 – 4 times to see optimal results.
