Since 1986, Advanced Dermatology, P.C. and the Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery have been offering a wide array of medical and cosmetic services for patients of all ages. One of the largest practices in the region for dermatology, laser and cosmetic surgery, the group currently has 18 locations in the New York City metropolitan area and continues to expand the procedures and services offered to include the most up-to-date devices and techniques. They are one of the few practices in the United States to offer a fellowship in lasers and cosmetic procedures.
Medical director and founder of Advanced Dermatology, P.C., Dr. Joshua Fox is known nationwide as a leading authority in the field of dermatology, with an expertise in skin cancer, cosmetic surgery and laser procedures. He has been an expert resource for the public interest on dermatologic topics for the major television networks, radio stations and national newspapers and magazines. Dr. Fox was the first to describe and publish on the use of lasers to treat stretch marks and has introduced many new technologies to the New York area.
Dr. Fox and the Advanced Dermatology providers already used other treatments for excessive sweating, including Botox injections and medications, but all of these options required repeated treatments and were not permanent solutions. Additionally, for someone who did not have hyperhidrosis but wanted to stop underarm sweat, these procedures were not the most practical or cost effective. Dr. Fox, who was an early adopter of the procedure, saw miraDry as a unique solution in that it is permanent and can be used for anyone who wants to stop underarm sweat, without repeated visits to maintain the results. Offering miraDry since 2013, they have collectively performed over 250 treatments and continue to see a larger number of patients requesting the treatment each month.
