Pediatric Medical Treatments

Pediatric Dermatology New York, Advanced Pediatric Medical Treatments

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, one of our main specialties is pediatric dermatology.  Dr. Jody Levine is dual board certified as a dermatologist and a pediatrician, making her uniquely qualified to address the specialized skin care needs of infants, children, and teens.  We offer a warm and child-friendly atmosphere, with a compassionate staff dedicated to meeting the medical and emotional needs of our young patients.

Developmental changes, hormonal fluctuations, genetics, and susceptibility to infection can all play a role in the health of children’s skin.  Dr. Levine is well-versed in the many conditions that affect children’s skin as well as the most advanced treatments for pediatric skin disorders. Dr. Levine and our dedicated staff work closely with parents to help educate their children about pediatric skin care.  From daily skin care regimens and acne prevention to diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care, we’re with you every step of the way to help ensure the ongoing health of your child’s skin.  We also understand that young patients may be anxious about the social and emotional aspects of their condition, as well as the pure physical concerns. With this in mind, we use the most sophisticated treatment options, combined with a sensitive and caring approach to develop a customized treatment plan for each patient’s specific needs.

Why should I use a pediatric dermatologist?

As a parent, you want the best care for your child.  A pediatric dermatologist not only specializes in dermatologic diagnosis and treatment that is specific to pediatrics, but also understands the distinctive physical and emotional needs of young patients. Diagnosis of pediatric skin conditions can be quite complex.  A child’s sensitive skin is prone to many different types of dermatologic disorders, some of which are unique to young and growing skin. Certain genetic disorders may, at times, first manifest on the skin of children.  Additionally, certain skin conditions may appear differently in children than in adults, requiring a doctor who is attuned to and knowledgeable about children’s skin.  A skilled pediatric dermatologist like Dr. Levine understands the nuances of children’s skin and can determine whether a skin disorder requires monitoring, medical treatment, surgical excision, laser therapy, or a combination of treatment modalities.  She can also detect when a skin condition might indicate a more serious underlying problem.  At PSD of NYC we’re able to care for patients from diagnosis and treatment through follow-up care and beyond.  With a supportive and caring staff, special pediatric anesthesia methods, and a child-friendly environment, we’re committed to making your child’s experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
