Angela Bowers, MD
Looking for trustworthy patient care with the state-of-the-art technology and treatment in dermatology? We suggest a visit to Southlake Dermatology’s new state-of-the-art facility located in Southlake, Texas. Southlake Dermatology, which was opened in July of 1999, is under the exceptional leadership of founder Dr. Angela Bowers, who has been treating residents of Southlake, Colleyville, Grapevine, Keller, Trophy Club, and beyond with top-notch care for the past 20 years.
“I think we just pride ourselves in trying to provide the most excellent care to patients from the beginning to end,” Dr. Bowers said. “We are a service-oriented practice. We are very thankful for all the patients who trust us to help them.”
Southlake Dermatology’s new 12,000 square foot office is twice the size of her previous office space. The office is now located off Highway 114 adjoining Southlake Methodist Hospital. This new state-of-the-art facility has a conveniently located parking garage, the most technologically advanced dermatology equipment, and new curbside parking spots. Patients may relax in their car while one of her staff members delivers skincare products or samples directly to them. “Now we are able to accommodate a couple more providers so patients can be seen quickly,” Dr. Bowers said. “This has been a really good move for us. It is a great building—a very relaxing place for patients to come.”
Dr. Bowers has built Southlake Dermatology into an award-winning practice that puts patients first and offers the most technologically advanced treatments and care in the industry. Dr. Bowers and Southlake Dermatology made the “Top Docs” list for Fort Worth, Texas in Texas Magazine, was named a “Healthcare Hero” by “Fort Worth Business Press”, made the “Super Doctors” list in Texas Monthly Magazine, and was named the best dermatologist in Southlake by the “Southlake Journal”. These are just some of the awards, of more than 30, that Southlake Dermatology has received over the years.
Dr. Bowers is a board certified dermatologist, which required her to take an additional eight years of schooling after college. She earned her undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University, where she graduated with summa cum laude honors. She completed her medical degree from UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, where she graduated with honors in Alpha Omega Alpha. Her medicine internship was at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. Dr. Bowers then finished her dermatology residency training at UT Southwestern, serving as chief resident during her final year.
Southlake Dermatology, with its excellent team of 34 staff members, provides a broad range of surgical, medical, and cosmetic dermatology procedures. Her team includes an associate physician, Dr. Kathrene Tajnert, three physician assistants, a specialized skin care consultant, a cosmetic coordinator, and three aestheticians.
“My staff gets a lot of enjoyment out of being able to help people feel better about themselves,” Dr. Bowers said. “Treating teenagers’ acne helps improve their appearance which has a huge impact on their self-esteem, school work, and confidence level.”
Dr. Bowers and her team, which has nearly 60 years of combined dermatology experience, are able to treat a plethora of conditions and perform procedures like skin cancer surgery, mole removal, injectable fillers, and chemical peels. They also provide specialized services to their patients that include Fraxel laser, CoolSculpting fat reduction, and Blue Light Phototherapy for pre-cancerous lesions. Southlake Dermatology’s newest treatment is called Emsculpt, which increases muscle tone and decreases fat.
“It is a brand new technology that uses high-frequency electromagnetic radiation to stimulate the motor neurons in our muscle fibers,” Dr. Bowers said. “By doing a 30-minute treatment on the abdominal core muscles, it is basically equivalent to 20,000 sit-ups but without pain. By doing four abdomen treatments, the studies have shown that you may achieve up to a 20 percent increase in muscle density and a 20 percent decrease in fat.”
Her practice is one of the first in the area to offer Emsculpt. Ten years ago, she was also the first practice in the area to use CoolSculpting, which has become a common procedure in dermatology offices across the country.
Though she says being first with a new procedure isn’t a focal point for her practice, it is more about being smart and adding the best new treatments that will help patients see results. “We always want to make sure the new treatments we offer have enough science and data behind them that we are confident patients will get results and be very satisfied,” Dr. Bowers said.
Dr. Bowers believes strongly in an open and honest doctor/patient relationship. She has worked hard to provide personal care with utmost confidentiality. In 2004, she was the first dermatologist in the DFW area to adopt paperless health records. This transition has helped Southlake Dermatology maintain accurate records and ensures patient information never gets misplaced. Her practice also provides all new patient forms online to help new patients save time. You can complete these forms and submit them to Southlake Dermatology before you ever have to step foot into their new office building.
“It is our service to patients that we focus on and pursue,” Dr. Bowers said. “We are always trying to stay innovative and bring in new technology into the practice for our patients.”
Southlake Dermatology is a member of the elite Platinum Dermatology Partners network and Dr. Bowers is a member of the all-physician Clinical Advisory Board. Dr. Bowers is a former president of the Dallas Dermatological Society.
