Dr. Nicole Lee before her late breaking research session at AAD 2017Congratulations to SkinCare Physicians’ Fellow, Nicole Lee, whose late breaking research abstract was one the 40 selected, out of 180 submissions, to be presented at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) 2017 annual meeting! She shared the clinical trial results of a novel topical therapy with Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria for Keratosis Pilaris.

SkinCare Physicians’ Dr. Thomas Rohrer becomes President of the ASDS

SkinCare Physicians is very proud to announce that Dr. Thomas Rohrer was inaugurated President of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS). Founded in 1970, the ASDS and its nearly 6,100 members are at the forefront of the development of dermatologic surgery for skin cancer – Mohs’ micrographic surgery and reconstruction – and are pioneers in the field. These dermatologic surgeons are also recognized as leaders in the field of cosmetic and medically necessary skin surgery.

ASDS members not only lead the field of specialists in the treatment of skin cancer, but many also are involved in the clinical studies that bring popular anti-aging treatments to the forefront. Their work has helped create and enhance many of the devices that tighten skin and remove blemishes, hair and fat. Dermatologic surgeons also are experts in skin cancer prevention, detection and treatment. As the incidence of skin cancer rises, dermatologic surgeons are committed to taking steps to minimize the life-threatening effects of this disease.

Dr. Rohrer’s long-standing relationship with the society, and his role in advancing the specialty of dermatologic surgery, particularly Mohs’ microscopically controlled surgery and reconstruction, have earned him a reputation as a leader in his field.  “I will passionately fight for strong advocacy for all aspects of dermatology and dermatologic surgery on both the national and state level,” Dr. Rohrer said. “We must align with other organizations both within and outside of dermatology. We will be far more successful being proactive than reactive.”

Along with three of his colleagues, Dr. Rohrer oversees SkinCare Physicians’ Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship program which is accredited by the ASDS. He also trains one fellow more extensively in Mohs surgery under the Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology Fellowship program which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Dr. Rohrer is the second SkinCare Physicians’ dermatologist after Dr. Jeffrey Dover to lead the ASDS.

Dr. Omer Ibrahim treating lip lines with laser November 28, 2016

SkinCare Physicians is very proud to announce that Dr. Omer Ibrahim is the recipient of this year’s American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Fredric S. Brandt Grant. Funded in memory of ASDS member and cosmetic dermatology pioneer Fredric S. Brandt, MD, the Innovations in Aesthetics Fellowship Fund promotes and supports the career development of junior cosmetic dermatologic surgeon-scientists focused on cosmetic treatments and patient care. Dr. Ibrahim is one of the three fellows currently enrolled in SkinCare Physicians’ ASDS-accredited Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship Training Program, under the direction of Drs. Arndt, Dover, Kaminer and Rohrer.

Dr. Ibrahim will use his grant to further advance research on the treatment of upper lip wrinkles, also known as smokers lines, which affect mainly women and are among the most stubborn and difficult-to-improve facial wrinkles. He will conduct his clinical study on 10 to 15 subjects using the Fraxel Re:pair carbon dioxide laser and topical poly-L-lactic acid at SkinCare Research near Boston. Drs. Arndt and Dover happily volunteered to mentor Dr. Ibrahim during this very exciting research study.

Congratulations Dr. Ibrahim!
