Texas Dermatology Associates, P.A.

At Texas Dermatology Associates, our board-certified dermatologists and physician assistants specialize in the diagnosis, management and prevention of skin, hair and nail  conditions with access to advanced treatments and technologies to offer the best possible care. One of the most important aspects of good skin care is regular skin examinations. We recommend that all of our patients regularly inspect their skin monthly for changes and suspicious-looking lesions or changes in existing skin characteristics. 

At Texas Dermatology Associates, we’ve been committed to providing our patients with the most up-to-date cosmetic and aesthetic skin care options for more than 30 years. We were involved in the first clinical trials of Botox® and hyaluronic acid fillers, and among the first institutes in the nation to provide these cosmetic procedures to our patients. In September 2014, we opened our brand new, state-of-the-art facility—the Menter Cosmetic Institute. Today, we offer the latest cosmetic, body contouring, laser and aesthetic services in an indulgent spa-like environment. When it comes to cosmetic dermatology, Baylor University Medical Center is the perfect home for the Menter Cosmetic Institute.
