The appearance of skin patches that are darker than the original skin is hyperpigmentation. Melasma, sunspots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are all different types of hyperpigmentation. Melanin is produced by skin cells and is a pigment that gives the skin its color. An excess production of melanin in the skin is what causes hyperpigmentation. An increase of melanin can be caused by sun exposure, hormone changes, medications, or trauma to the skin. We offer a variety of treatments for hyperpigmentation such as topical prescriptions, skin care products, diamond glow, microneedling, and IPL or Picosure laser.

Treatment Options We Offer:

  • Topical hydroquinone prescription : Topical hydroquinone prescription is a skin-lightening medication used to reduce hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the production of melanin, resulting in a more even skin tone.

  • Microneedling : Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can be used to treat hyperpigmentation by creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting a more even skin tone.
  • Chemical Peels : Chemical peels are a skincare treatment used to address hyperpigmentation by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the top layer and encourages the growth of new, more even-toned skin.
  • IPL : IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy is a non-invasive treatment for hyperpigmentation that uses high-intensity light to target and reduce excess pigmentation in the skin, resulting in a more balanced and uniform complexion.
  • Picotone : Picotone is a laser-based treatment for hyperpigmentation that uses ultra-short pulses of laser energy to break down excess pigment in the skin, leading to a more even and rejuvenated complexion.

Fungal, Yeast, and Bacterial Infections

These type of infections are caused by an overgrowth of microorganisms. A infection may appear as redness and may be accompanied by other symptoms. These infections may occur anywhere on the body and can also affect the finger and toenails. “Athlete’s foot” is a commonly known fungal infection. An overgrowth of yeast in the scalp can cause scaling and itching (seborrheic dermatitis). Bacterial infections may require a wound culture to isolate the organism to specify treatment. Schedule your focused visit today for evaluation and a treatment plan. Your treatment plan may include a skin scraping, nail trimming sample, biopsy, or culture for diagnosis. Infections are commonly treated with topical or oral medications.

Hair Loss

An accurate diagnosis is the most effective way to treat hair loss. At Dr. Monica Scheel dermatology we have in-depth knowledge about the many causes of hair loss. Hair loss can be caused by underlying disease, vitamin deficiency, hormone imbalance, or stress. At your consultation, we will create a customized treatment plan for you that may include supplements, nutrition counseling, prescription medications, blood work, scalp biopsy, steroid injections, or PRP injections. We offer Nutrafol, a specially formulated natural supplement that supports hair growth and a compounded topical Hair Density Serum at our office

Hair Loss Before


Hair Loss After


Under eye hollows

Genetic factors and aging can contribute to the appearance of hollowing under the eyes.  Hyaluronic acid filler can be used to improve the tired-looking appearance of under eye hollows. Filler will last about 1 year under the eyes. We offer the following for under eye hollows:

Saggy skin

We offer a variety of treatments to address skin laxity on the face. Loss of collagen, fat, and bone, sun damage, genetic factors, and aging can all contribute to skin laxity. Some treatments that we may recommend to improve saggy skin are listed below. We recommend follow up treatments and medical-grade skin care products to maintain your results after initial treatment.

Crepey skin

With aging and sun damage, the skin becomes thinner due to loss of collagen. The best treatments for crepey skin are those that initiate collagen stimulation. Follow up treatments as recommended by your provider and medical-grade skincare products (vitamin c serum and retinol daily) are essential to maintain your results after treatment.

Volume loss

If you feel like you are losing the contours of your cheeks and jawline or losing volume of your face overall, hyaluronic acid filler and sculptra are our most recommended treatments. Hyaluronic acid filler is a gel that can be used to fill folds, lift, and contour the face. Sculptra is a bio-stimulator that stimulates your body’s own collagen. Sculptra is especially effective for the lower cheek area.

  • Hyaluronic acid filler
  • Sculptra

Dull skin

Brighten your complexion with a variety of our treatments. If vellus hair and dead skin are contributing to dull-looking skin we recommend either peels, diamond glow microdermabrasion, or dermaplane with our estheticians. We often find that collagen stimulating treatments such as lasers and sculptra give your skin a beautiful glow starting at about 1 month post treatment.

  • Chemical Peel
  • CO2 Laser
  • Diamond Glow
  • Fractionated Light
  • Dermaplane
  • Picotone
  • Microneedling
  • Sculptra
  • Potenza RF Microneedling

Submental fat/ Double Chin

We offer the only injectable for dissolving fat, Kybella. Kybella is a non-surgical alternative to improve the appearance of fullness of the face and under the chin. Kybella works by destroying fat cells in the area it is injected. For optimal results, a series of 3 treatments are recommended using 2 vials each.


One of the most common concerns with aging is the appearance of jowls. Our expert injectors customize a treatment for you based on your needs. The appearance of jowls can be due to fat in the area or loss of volume in the other areas of the face. Some options for treatment include the following:

Brow lift

The treatments we offer in our office can provide a subtle brow lift of a couple millimeters. If you are hoping for a non-surgical improvement for a reasonable cost, Botox/Dysport or firming threads may be options for you.


Genetics, aging, sun damage, and lifestyle habits can all contribute to saggy skin, crepey skin, and horizontal neck lines. Skin texture of the neck can best be improved by lasers that stimulate collagen. Horizontal neck lines needing volume replacement and collagen stimulation are best treated with hyperdilute radiesse.


Wrinkles formed by muscle movement (expression) can be treated with wrinkle relaxers Dysport and Botox. These temporary treatments give the appearance of smooth skin and also prevent static lines that may form.
