In order to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of his patients, Dr. Pezen also offers the following:

  1. XTRAC® Excimer Ultraviolet Laser-an exciting new and effective treatment for Psoriasis and Vitiligo
  2. Photodynamic Therapy used in treatment of extensive pre-cancerous lesions of the skin (Actinic Keratoses)
  3. Patch Testing for the investigation of allergic reactions of the skin

Surgical Dermatology

Removal of skin cancers, moles, cysts, and other growths of the skin and nails are performed in a large surgical suite located right within the office. This eliminates the need for the patient to travel to an unfamiliar hospital or surgical center to have his or her procedure performed. In addition, all procedures are conducted using local anesthesia, thus removing the potential risk of being “put to sleep".

Dr. Pezen has much experience in skin cancer removal; particularly the removal and cosmetic repair of skin cancers of the face. In fact, he formally instructed Dermatology residents in the art of skin surgery at The University of Chicago while a faculty member there.

Cosmetic Dermatology

Dr. Pezen performs only cosmetic procedures that have been proven safe and truly effective.  These include:

  1. Glycolic Acid Peels for improved skin color and texture as well as the removal of fine lines and wrinkles
  2. TCA Peels for acne scarring and more advanced skin damage
  3. Dermabrasion for acne scarring and removal of wrinkles, especially those around the mouth
  4. Sclerotherapy, the “gold standard” treatment for the removal of spider and varicose veins of the legs
