Did you know DFW is home to an internationally acclaimed leader in dermatology? While earning a medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Dr. R. Todd Plott won national recognition for his research on vitiligo. After completing an internship and residency in dermatology at the University of Arkansas Health Sciences, he studied dermatologic medicine at the National Cancer Institute. He spent 16 years performing pharmacologic drug research and led the development of several topical and oral prescription products used by dermatologists today. Dr. Plott is the named inventor on one of the most widely used drugs in dermatology, Solodyn extended-release capsules, for which he has had six patents issued.
Additionally, Dr. Plott served as the medical officer for Restylane (a popular dermal filler) until 2008. Most recently, he was appointed to the FDA’s Dermatologic and Opthamalogic Drug Advisory Committee.
Advanced Dermatologic Services, Extraordinary Patient Care
With over 30 years of experience in patient care and as a board-certified dermatologist and clinical researcher, Dr. Plott’s specialty training ensures patients receive the most advanced treatment and dermatology products available.
The winner of multiple Living Magazine ‘Best Of’ awards, he is highly skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions, including acne, skin cancer, psoriasis, and hair disorders. Dr. Plott and his team also offer an array of results-oriented nonsurgical cosmetic services, such as Ultherapy skin tightening, intense pulsed light (IPL), chemical peels, dermaplaning, injectable fillers, Botox, and more.
“My goal is to help patients achieve the best results possible, and I enjoy spending time educating patients about their conditions and treatment options,” says Dr. Plott, whose gentle nature and reassuring bedside manner puts his patients at ease.
Breakthrough Noninvasive Skin Cancer Treatment
Dr. Plott is one of a few physicians in North Texas who offers an FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for basal and squamous cell skin cancer. Having performed over 700 Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) procedures, Dermatology Alliance is considered one of DFW’s most experienced SRT providers. All SRT procedures are performed by experienced radiation therapists licensed by the state of Texas.
“SRT is an effective alternative to surgery that offers good aesthetic outcomes,” Dr. Plott says. “It’s often an option for people who don’t want to undergo surgery, who have a condition that makes them a poor surgical candidate, or who are on blood thinners.”
Trent previously underwent Mohs surgery to treat skin cancer. When another lesion appeared, he went to see Dr. Plott. “Surgery can be disfiguring, so I was interested in SRT,” Trent says. “Dr. Plott explained why he thought I was a good candidate and what to expect. I finished a series of SRT treatments that took about five minutes each and am pleased with the cosmetic results.”
