Dermatology is an area of medicine that focuses on the health of your skin, hair, and nails. Dermatology providers are health professionals who have specialized training in the treatment and care of treatments and illnesses related to those parts of your body.
Do I need a Dermatologist?
You might be thinking to yourself that your skin is pretty healthy and that your family doctor is enough to keep it that way. The truth is, your skin is the body’s largest organ and serves as your first line of defense from bacteria, viruses, and other dangers like the sun’s UV rays. This means that your skin does a lot of work, and needs special care to maintain optimal health levels. Whether you need help with mild acne or melanoma (skin cancer), your best bet is to find a good dermatologist who will help you to find the right treatments for YOUR skin.

SkinPen® with PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), facilitated by the SkinPen®, uses your skin’s natural properties and ability to repair damaged tissues. This allows your skin to look its very best.
Using a small sample of your blood, the blood is spun, resulting in enriched plasma that can be applied where it is needed with the SkinPen®. The SkinPen® uses a microneedling process that creates mini injuries. As the skin heals with SkinPen® aftercare, the result is better-looking, youthful and smooth skin.
The SkinPen® Treatment:
- Stimulates skin repair
- Is quick (30-Minute Procedures)
- Is perfect for all types of skin
- Is effective against wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and more!
- Uses a natural remodeling process
The result of the microneedling procedure is new collagen and elastin, which comes without scar tissue and assists the skin in maintaining a beautiful appearance.These quick procedures are suitable and effective on all body parts and require little to no downtime.

Millions of people suffer from chronic pain or illness. Whether it’s neck pain, back pain, shoulder strain or headaches. For many of them, traditional medicine doesn’t have a good solution. If you’re in the same boat, medication may seem like the only option to get you through the day. But medication treats only the symptoms – not the cause of your pain. Don’t let medication become a life-long crutch. We firmly believe that your pain signals an underlying problem – something that traditional medicine can treat with drugs but can’t cure. Fortunately, chiropractic treatments can. By uncovering the root of the problem, we can take corrective action and stop the pain at its source. And we do it naturally, without drugs or invasive procedures.
An x-ray (radiograph) is a painless medical test that involves radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. A bone x-ray makes images of any bone in the body, including the hand, wrist, arm, foot, ankle, knee, leg, or spine. Life Wellness Medical Center uses on-site x-rays to facilitate immediate diagnosis of bone disorders during the patient visit. We use a high frequency digital x-ray machine that administers low dosage of radiation producing quality films to be viewed by our providers without a long waiting period.
X-rays are interpreted by either Dr. Chen, DC or Dr. Paulson, DO.
