Dr O'Donoghue utilizes the latest technological advances and offers his patients the most safe and effective treatments available
One of the ways Dr. O'Donoghue can enhance your appearance is by using the MiXto SX® Fractional C02 Laser for Skin Resurfacing.
This laser combines the effectiveness of Carbon Dioxide lasers with an innovative "quadrant" fractional technology.
One 30 minute treatment with this laser will accomplish more than 3 treatments with traditional CO2 resurfacing. Treatments with this laser do not require general anesthesia and patients experience less discomfort, less downtime, and no harsh side effects.
The cost of treatment with the MiXto SX® Fractional C02 Laser is also significantly less than traditional CO2 resurfacing.
The many benefits are immediate shrinkage of damaged skin, softening of fine lines and wrinkles , removal of age and sun spots, and even new collagen production for up to one year following treatment.

This is usually a sebaceous cyst that is a closed sac found under the skin, usually on the trunk, neck, or face. They are filled with a oily or cheese-like matter and usually are painless.
In some cases, however, cysts can get inflamed and become tender to the touch. They are also called epidermal cysts, wens, keratin cysts, or epidermoid cysts. Most often, sebaceous cysts come out of hair follicles or can form as a result of trauma to the skin. Usually they are benign, but they must be differentiated from other potentially malignant bumps that can mimic cysts.
In some cases, the dermatologist will perform a biopsy to rule out certain conditions. If a small cyst becomes inflamed, a dermatologist can inject it with an anti-inflammatory medication to reduce swelling or just remove it entirely with surgery.
Melanoma only affects 4 percent of those diagnosed with skin cancer, but it accounts for 79 percent of all skin cancer related deaths.
Anyone who has overexposure to the sun, regardless of skin color, has a higher risk for melanoma.
Individuals with blond or red hair, and fair complexion have the highest risk for melanoma. Also if you experienced excessive sun exposure during your childhood and teen years or have a family history of melanoma, you should have a skin cancer-related checkup.
The American Cancer Society recommends a checkup every three years for people between 20 and 40 years of age, and every year for anyone 40 and older.
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common cancer of the skin.
Patients with fair complexions who frequently sun bathe or use tanning beds are most likely to be affected. Some SCC's arise from small sandpaper-like precancerous lesions called actinic leratoses. About 20% of these precancers can evolve into the earliest for of SCC which may present as a warty-growth or a sore that bleeds.
Melanoma is a malignant tumor of melanocytes which are found predominantly ion skin. it is a serious type of skin cancer that causes the majority of skin cancer related deaths.
Although fair skinned individuals are most commonly affected, darker skinned patients who tan easily can develop melanoma as well. It is due to uncontrolled growth of pigment cells called melanocytes.
Traditional therapies have relied upon both topical and oral antibiotics. At O'Donoghue Dermatology - we prefer a more natural approach. We start many of our acne and rosacea patients on a specific all natural regimen.
Therapy begins with a homeopathic oral spray which reduces redness, inflammation and breakouts. It is followed by a series of natural, pulsed light treatments that target and can permanently shrink inflamed blood vessels.
This is also combined with a specific diet that avoids the foods most commonly associated with rosacea flares. For more information - or to book a consultation - please contact us today.
