Since opening its doors in 2004, Pierre Skin Care Institute has offered the comprehensive care that all patients seek, highly skilled technically but also delivering the aesthetic quality and compassionate sensibility that transform lives. “One of the things I enjoy is being able to have a profound impact on someone’s outlook on life,” says Dr. Peterson Pierre, a board-certified dermatologist who received his medical and specialty degrees from Stanford University School of Medicine and publishes widely in scientific journals. “Dermatologists may be trivialized as ‘pimple-poppers,’ but there is so much more to it. Teens with acne, for example, often have damaged self-esteem and suffer from depression. But within months of treatment, their personalities can change completely,” he says. “It’s quite amazing.” Dr. Pierre provides a full spectrum of services, from life-saving cancer diagnoses and treatment to cosmetic procedures. He is skilled in both ablative and non-ablative laser techniques to treat sun damage and wrinkles, and peers frequently refer patients for treatment of skin diseases and conditions. Often dubbed the “gentle injector,” he has been named one of the top 4% of U.S. doctors performing Botox and filler injections. “Everything should be in perfect harmony for a beautiful result that helps you look your best. My goal is not to create something that never existed but rather to restore your natural beauty,” he says. His loyal base of patients spans generations. “Patients often ask about the most fun part of my job. It has nothing to do with mechanics. It’s about building relationships. I see teens who grow up, get married, and send their children and siblings to me. I find it so gratifying,” he says. Patients who face the anxiety associated with skin care deserve the comfort of a skilled physician who can address them with not only the latest techniques and technology, but also concern for their individual well-being.
