Western Dermatology Consultants Expands with New Treatments and a Surgical Suite in March

Share Article

March 1 marked the opening of a new surgical suite at Western Dermatology Consultants in New Mexico. The dermatology practice, long known for offering treatments like BOTOX® in Albuquerque, also recently added Kybella® to its menu of services.

Led by a trio of board-certified dermatologists, Western Dermatology Consultants is well known for providing skin-tightening, fat-reducing, and wrinkle-smoothing treatments (such as Thermage®, CoolSculpting®, and BOTOX®) to Albuquerque-area residents looking to make a cosmetic change. The practice’s available services are increasing, including the introduction of Kybella® in December 2015 and the opening of a new surgical suite at the start of March 2016.

The changes will allow Western Dermatology Consultants to continue to meet the demands of patients increasingly looking for specific cosmetic and medical treatments tailored to their unique lifestyles, body types, goals, schedules, and budgets. BOTOX® is ideal for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet to either side of the eye, for instance, but BOTOX® will not address skin tone or unwanted fat.

The doctors—Barbara Einhorn, MD; Leslie Glass, MD; and Sara Mills, MD, PhD—are developing these new services and opportunities not with a goal to replace BOTOX® and other treatments, but to complement them. Patients looking to make a change will be able to find more of what they need concentrated into one practice, increasing their convenience, comfort level, and even safety, since they will be able to work with a consistent team who will be familiar with their history. The team is trained and certified, with an expert understanding in how treatments work separately and together, both medically and aesthetically. A BOTOX® session may need to be spaced a certain time apart from other treatments to maximize cosmetic results as well as ensure safety.

The new suite will allow the team to handle minor surgical procedures, with a focus on Mohs, which is a sophisticated surgery technique for effectively and completely removing common types of skin cancers while leaving a maximum amount healthy tissue and skin intact. It involves the doctor performing the procedure examining thin layers of tissue throughout the surgery, developing a real-time picture of how far a lesion extends and where it stops.

Kybella® is an injectable approved in 2015 to reduce submental fat, which collects at the neck and creates a bulge known commonly as a double chin. This fat can resist typical weight-loss methods, such as diet and exercise. The prescription cosmetic physically destroys precisely targeted cells, releasing the fat they contain to be safely eliminated by the body. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body, where its role is to break down dietary fat. It joins a menu of other injectables with specific purposes, including BOTOX®, Dysport®, and dermal fillers.
