Your Partner in the Defense of Your Skin

It’s not a cliche: the skin is the body’s largest organ, and an important line of defense. Often, an irregularity on the skin can be a first warning of a larger issue. At Apex Dermatology, our board certified dermatologist Dr. Harp sleuths out early signs of skin damage and determines the best treatment plan.

Our first step in determining exactly what your skin needs is a full skin exam. From there, we can create a plan for the health and beauty of your skin.

Medications or topical treatments often treat most common symptoms. However, skin cancers and other irregularities may require a biopsy to analyze the skin tissue through a microscope. These are performed with local anesthesia and do not require any down time. Our office will follow up with the results typically within a week. Dr. Harp reads her own pathology and has seen tens of thousands of cases during her career.

If you have a melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or basal cell carcinoma, Dr. Harp performs MOHS Surgery - the most precise form of skin cancer surgery. Dr. Harp is a Board Certified member of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgeons and an Associate of the American Society of Mohs Surgery.

Dr. Harp and her Physician Assistants enjoy treating patients of all ages and ethnicities. The greatest honor for Apex Dermatology is when a patient is so happy with their care, they bring in their entire family.

Photodynamic Therapy for Early Skin Cancer Detection and Elimination

Actinic Keratoses (AKs) are rough-textured, dry, scaly patches on the skin (mostly on the face and scalp) which can lead to skin cancer. It is important to treat AKs because there is no way to tell when or which lesions will progress to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), the second most common for of skin cancer.

Our dermatologists detect AKs early and now with BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy in conjunction with Levulan Kerasticks® there is a safe and effective way to treat them with no down time.

LEVULAN KERASTICK® and BLU-U® is a unique two-part treatment that uses a light activated drug therapy to destroy AKs. The LEVULAN KERASTICK® topical solution is applied to the AK which absorbs the solution and converts it into a chemical that makes the cells extremely sensitive to light. When the AK cells are exposed to the BLU-U® Blue Light Illuminator, a reaction occurs which destroys the AK cells.
The 2-part treatment offers the following conveniences:
• No prescription to fill
• No daily medication to remember
• Treatment is administered by a qualified healthcare professional

LEVULAN KERASTICK® and BLU-U® fits your lifestyle:
• The 2-part, 2 office visit treatment is completed in less than 24 hours
• Low downtime
• High ratings for cosmetic response
• No scarring reported to date

Patients treated with LEVULAN KERASTICK and BLU-U PDT should avoid exposure of the photosensitized lesions to sunlight or prolonged or intense light for at least 40 hours.
