General Dermatology


Our office specializes in the diagnosis and management of skin, hair, and nail disorders. This is a sizable task considering the skin is the largest organ of the body. No one is without skin; consequently, we treat men and women of myriad backgrounds, and all ages from infants to seniors.

From the day we enter this world, a number of conditions may afflict the skin. Eczema is one and can manifest as cradle cap, poison oak, and atopic dermatitis, among others. We specialize in recognizing the various types of eczema and distinguishing eczema from other rashes so that appropriate treatment is rendered.

Acne and warts are common problems which plague us from early on. While appearing predominantly in children and young adults, older individuals may suffer as well. With newer treatments available today, no one should have to go through life hampered by these maladies.

Growths of the skin are inevitable throughout life. Benign ones need to be distinguished from cancerous ones. A trained eye and certain specialized laboratory tests are many times necessary to make the distinction. If the growth requires removal, a number of different procedures are available in order to minimize scarring and achieve maximum cosmetic benefit.

Skin cancer threatens us all, and that's because the number one cause of skin cancer, the sun, is everywhere. Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma are the most common. Of these, melanoma is the most serious because it can kill quickly. Any mole that changes or appears different needs to be evaluated. When melanoma is diagnosed and treated early, it is entirely curable.

Healthy skin is the goal for which we strive. It begins with proper protection and that means being sun smart. Wear your sunscreen and protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. While we can correct many problems with the skin, the best correction is protection.


Our office offers to keep you looking your best. Botox is performed in the office and produces little to no downtime. Below you will find detailed information regarding this procedure. 



Small doses of a solution called Botox are injected directly into a specific muscle to diminish the muscle action. Botox is effective in the treatment of crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines.



Botox is the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. By using extremely small doses of Botox injected directly into a specific muscle, the action of the muscle is weakened. As a result, the problem the muscle causes, such as a twitch, spasm, or wrinkle line, is eliminated.


Botox is most commonly injected into the crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are caused by the action of muscles called the glabellar complex. Injecting Botox into this complex weakens the ability to draw the eyebrows together when frowning. Similarly, injecting Botox into the frontalis muscle above the eyebrows and the orbicularis muscle around the eyes softens the harshness created by these muscles.


The treatment takes only a few minutes, and the results last between three to five months. When the lines begin to reappear, a simple retreatment is all that is necessary.



Cosmetic Dermatology


ABD Mohs Cert__edited_edited.png

Mohs Surgery is a specialized surgical technique performed in the office to remove skin cancer. It involves the process of removing successive thin layers of skin which contain skin cancer cells.  These thin layers are examined under the microscope to determine the complete extent of cancer. Once Dr. Badame identifies the absence of cancer cells, the resultant surgical wound is repaired under simple local anesthesia.This procedure is advantageous because it offers a high rate of cure while allowing the patient to maintain as much healthy skin as possible.
