North Sound Dermatology, an award-winning medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology practice with offices in Everett, Mill Creek and Monroe, will open the doors to its new north Snohomish County location in February. The clinic, with a planned opening on Feb. 1, is located at 16410 Smokey Point Blvd., in the Cumulus Health Park building, Suite 300.
North Sound Dermatology is the most comprehensive dermatology program in Snohomish and Skagit counties, offering board-certified adult dermatology, board-certified pediatric dermatology, board-certified dermatopathology (skin pathology) and fellowship-trained Mohs Micrographic Surgery, as well as the counties' only photodynamic therapy units and the most comprehensive phototherapy units in the area.
All of these services are offered by dermatologists who are board-certified and fellowship-trained in their sub-specialty, said North Sound Dermatology's founder, Dieter Schmidt, MD, FAAD, FACMS. In fact, the clinic's dermatologists have been voted by their peers as Top Doctors (Seattle Metropolitan Magazine), Best Doctors in America and Best Doctors in WA State.
The growing incidence of skin cancer, especially in younger women, is of great concern to Schmidt and he hopes to be able to educate patients about what to look for.
"The bottom line is that melanoma is the number one cause of death in women between the ages of 20 and 30," explained Schmidt. "Melanoma is a cancerous mole and has a high mortality rate, but is easily curable if caught early."
North Sound Dermatology practitioners are specialists in the treatment of skin cancer, eczema, acne and psoriasis, and provide laser treatments for wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, melasma (facial pigmentation), sun spots, unwanted hair and facial veins. The clinic also offers Botox and fillers for frown lines and wrinkles, chemical peels, permanent make-up and tinting, and sclerotherapy to eliminate spider veins of the legs.
