What Our Patients Are Saying About Us

I think Dr. Shega is the most sincere dermatologist in San Diego county. He is very personal and when he talks to you he treats you like you’re family. There is sometimes a wait once you’re there, but he’s the only dermatologist around who will accept same day appointments. I guess that’s the trade off for this benefit. I recommend him to others.

Do you offer acne treatment?

Acne is one of the most common of all skin problems. It affects most teenagers to some degree and even many adults.

Acne most commonly occurs on the face but can also appear on the back, chest, shoulders, and neck.

What Conditions Are Treated With Laser?

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief. Until now, the only semi-permanent way to remove hair has been by electrolysis – which can be painful, time-consuming and is limited to small cosmetic areas. Scarring, allergic reactions and ingrown hairs are common side effects of all these hair removal methods. The GentleLASE safely re-moves unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial and bikini areas are usually completed in under ten minutes; legs and larger areas can take longer.

Is There an Eczema Treatment?

Eczema treatments are available, but first you must be diagnosed by a physician or dermatologist.

Restylane

Restylane is a dermal filler made of a biodegradable and nonanimal stabilized hyaluronic acid, or NASHA. Restylane is just a hyaluronic acid gel that is produced to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. In patients over 21, it can also be used for lip augmentation.


Botox

Botox works by blocking signals from nerves, so the injected muscle can no longer contract. Botox injections in San Diego cause wrinkles to relax and soften and prevent new ones from forming.


Juvéderm

Juvéderm is an injectable soft tissue filler that fills in facial wrinkles and restores the face’s natural smooth appearance.


Scars

Scarring is a natural part of the healing process. However, scars are not very attractive. The good news is that there are several scar removal options. Below are some of scar removal treatment options that are available.


Eczema

Eczema is a broad term used for a variety of skin conditions where the skin appears red, irritated and sometimes has fluid-filled bumps. Eczema is often caused by atopic dermatitis and can occur in infants, young children and adults.
