Dr. Garlapati offers a wide variety of services for his patients, including:
Mohs micrographic surgery – This sophisticated cancer removal technique involves removing tissue in thin layers and mapping the tumor’s precise location before proceeding. The unique process facilitates higher cure rates as well as less cosmetic outcomes. Due to the complex nature of the procedure, few dermatologists are trained in Mohs.
Injectable antiaging treatments – Dermal fillers replace lost tissue volume, while neuromodulators such as Botox relax away crow’s feet and other fine lines. Dr. Garlapati skillfully administers these products, achieving optimal improvement while maintaining a natural appearance.
Laser treatment – From hair removal to skin surgery, lasers are reshaping dermatologic medicine with more precise, more effective, less invasive solutions. Dr. Garlapati stays at the forefront of developing technology to deliver the quality of care that he believes patients deserve.
Medical treatment – There are hundreds of skin conditions, ranging from mildly irritating rashes to potentially deadly cancers. Dr. Garlapati begins with a comprehensive diagnosis to pinpoint the problem, and then he devises an individualized treatment program. He strongly encourages all patients to perform skin self-checks regularly and have a professional cancer screening at least once a year.
Aesthetic treatment– Aging, wrinkles, sun damage, dehydration, and hyperpigmentation are no match for Dr. Garlapati’s advanced cosmetic dermatology skills.
