Westlake Dermatology is a national leader in dermatology and plastic surgery, sought out for their specialization in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. After attending Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Dr. Gregory Nikolaidis completed a residency in Dermatology at the University of California, San Diego and worked with a dermatology group in Southern California for two years following. He founded Westlake Dermatology in Austin, Texas in 2002, and since then, that solo practice has grown into a multi-specialty practice that includes 20 physicians, five physician assistants and one nurse practitioner. Westlake Dermatology provides a unique patient experience, offering complete range of clinical and cosmetic dermatology and premier plastic surgery services in a resort-like atmosphere.
Among the first in the country to acquire a miraDry system when it launched in 2012, Westlake features expert practitioners who together have completed nearly 500 miraDry treatments. Brianna Kay, PA-C is one of Westlake’s most experienced miraDry operators. She had the miraDry treatment herself and loves her results – ask her all about it!
Prior to miraDry, the only treatment available for hyperhidrosis patients was Botox injections, which are temporary and require repeat procedures. Westlake prioritizes offering the latest technology the industry to their patients, and miraDry fills a niche that nothing else can offer. Expanding beyond the clinical hyperhidrosis patient as an effective solution for normal sweating, the practice believes they will continue to see miraDry grow in popularity, especially in the Austin area where miraDry allows patients to steer away from the use of deodorants and antiperspirants.
“I had a phenomenal experience with my miraDry treatment at Westlake Dermatology. The procedure was quick, about an hour and a half from start to end, and very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and made me feel safe. The anesthesia was very tolerable and I didn’t feel any pain for most of my procedure. I used the miraDry ice packs for the first couple of days and it really helped the swelling. I was definitely tender, but I was still able to keep my normal routine so that I didn’t miss work. I just love that the results were immediate and I am looking forward to not having to stress about underarm sweating from here on out. Thanks Westlake Dermatology for giving me my confidence back!! I would recommend this treatment to everyone!”
