Having good skin means more than maintaining a clear complexion. Caring for your skin—from head to toe—involves the help of professionals dedicated to keeping this vital part of your anatomy healthy and glowing. According to JAMA Dermatology, each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidences of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung, and colon. The good news is most skin cancers, when caught early, are successfully treated and patients fully recover. The better news is many skin cancers can be avoided with a little common sense, a good sunscreen regime, and regular screenings from a trusted dermatologist.
The medical team at Warthan Dermatology takes great care in educating their patients about smart skincare. When outdoors, always use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30, even on cloudy days, as UV rays are still present. And remember, there is no such thing as a “safe tan,” particularly one obtained from a tanning salon. “The demographic for skin cancer cases is definitely changing, and this rise is directly linked to tanning bed use,” said Dr. Mandy Warthan.
A patient recently posted on Warthan Dermatology via Facebook: “Absolutely love Dr. Mandy Warthan and Ann Marie! They have recommended and performed procedures that are cutting-edge to deal with my super sun-sensitive skin! I am now not so self-conscious about the years of damage the sun exposure had caused to my face, arms, hands, legs, and feet. Still more to look forward to instead of dread because I see a difference after each visit!”
Smart Skincare Starts Here
While it’s tempting—especially this time of year—to seek ways to achieve a little color on your face and body, your safest bet is accepting the skin tone you were born with or getting a slight boost from makeup or tinted sunscreens. Warthan Dermatology is proud to carry EltaMD, a prescription grade skincare line, and Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup. “Our patients tell us all the time they really appreciate that we are a one-stop shop for all their dermatologic needs—from aesthetic services to skin cancer screenings, from biopsy results to surgery,” said Dr. Mandy Warthan. Warthan Dermatology focuses on medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.
“I have been seen by Dr. Molly Warthan, Dr. Mandy Warthan, and Lindsay McCauley, PA-C, at least once each over the last three years,” said another patient. “I have nothing but good things to say about them, their nurses, and the entire support staff. Always feel like I am in good hands. I doubt there is any clinic in the state that has more expertise in all things skin-related under one roof.”
Warthan Dermatology offers innovative aesthetic treatments that will improve your skin’s tone and texture. Are fine lines and wrinkles making you look older than you feel? The Halo hybrid fractional laser eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth—not too shallow or too deep. Halo improves your skin’s tone and texture while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients also notice a reduction in pore size and more glowing, youthful skin. A full-line of injectables and facial fillers—performed only by the doctors—is also available, and topical treatments are provided by a team of experienced and licensed aestheticians.

Join their Patient-Centric Practice
At Warthan Dermatology, patients trust that the board-certified physicians not only prioritize their good health, but are also dedicated to staying at the forefront of the field of dermatology. To better educate their patients on services offered, the practice offers lunch presentations each month on a targeted service, treatment, or technology. Presentations typically feature an informative introduction followed by a live demo and then a complimentary lunch. Individualized free consultations on the service are then offered to anyone interested.
