Tuesday, February 23, 2010

GALVESTON, Texas — The dermatology department at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has opened a new location in the Bay Area offering both cosmetic and general dermatology services.

Located at 2785 Gulf Freeway S., Suite 165, in League City, University Dermatology at Bay Colony is staffed by six faculty physicians, all of whom are board certified by the American Board of Dermatology. They offer expertise in all aspects of skin care, including the prevention and treatment of a variety of skin conditions, such as acne, warts, skin cancer, moles, eczema, birthmarks and psoriasis.

“Our physicians are well-trained to attend to a variety of skin disorders, ranging from every-day problems to extremely rare conditions,” said Dr. Sharon Raimer, chairwoman of the UTMB Department of Dermatology. “I’m so pleased that we have been able to make our services as accessible as possible for the residents in and around Galveston County.”

In addition to light treatments for skin conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo, the Bay Colony Clinic offers multiple cosmetic procedures, including Botox injections and chemical peels to help skin look younger and healthier. Fillers and volumizers, including Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra, Perlane and Juvederm, are also offered.

Opened in 1920, UTMB’s dermatology department is the oldest in the state and has a long history of excellence in patient care, in the training of medical and allied health students and residents and in the generation of new medical knowledge.

The department also offers services on the main campus at UTMB, at Stewart Road Family Health clinic in Galveston and inside the Angleton Urgent Care Center. For more information, call 281-534-3376 or visit www.utmb.edu/dermatology.
