Dr. Weinfeld’s professional meticulous manner was most reassuring. Her approach was comforting, as she explained what the procedure entailed, and was always concerned that I was comfortable. All in all, a wonderfully pleasant visit. The best dermatologist I ever visited.

 I had skin tags removed. I could feel them and was constantly touching them. Now that they are gone I can honestly say it was the best $200 I’ve spent!

Our dermatologists at Dermatology and Skin Care Associates are skilled in the latest techniques for skin surgery and take a caring, compassionate approach to treatment. Our physicians treat patients of all ages-- adults, teens and children. We use state-of-the-art surgical techniques to perform skin cancer surgery, mole and cyst removal, skin biopsies, skin tag and milia removal, and ear piercing in our Wellesley, Massachusetts dermatology office.

Surgical Treatments

At Dermatology and Skin Care Associates, we understand that any procedure can be unsettling, so our staff focuses on helping our patients feel comfortable throughout their visit. Our staff supports patients with basic yet invaluable hand-holding, and soothing music is available if needed. Parents can bring music or DVD players to help children relax.

We have an outstanding in-house dermatopathologist who is also a practicing dermatologist, ensuring the most accurate and complete diagnosis and treatment plan for every patient. Deon Wolpowitz, M.D., Ph.D, is Board-certified in both dermatology and dermatopathology, specifically trained in diagnosis of skin diseases and skin cancer under the microscope and how to best apply those findings to improve results for our patients. Dr. Wolpowitz has been practicing dermatopathology since 2006, including more than ten years as a faculty member at Boston University. His expertise allows to deliver the highest quality care to our patients. You can read more about Dr. Wolpowitz here.

Our skilled physicians perform:

Mohs Surgery: Dr. Steven Smith offers specialized skin cancer surgery to give our patients outstanding results. Dr. Smith has practiced in Wellesley for over 20 years. He is one of the most well-respected and experienced Mohs Surgeons in New England, having performed over 15,000 Mohs procedures during his career.

Skin cancer surgery: Most skin cancers can be removed in our office under local anesthesia in 30 minutes or less. In most cases, patients can return to most normal activities the same day.

Mole removal, cyst removal, and skin biopsies: Most moles and cysts can be removed under local anesthesia in fewer than 10-15 minutes. In most cases, patients can resume most normal activities the same day. Our physicians guide our patients through any required follow up and provide expert advice on treatment.

Removal of skin tags, oil glands, and milia: Our physicians remove these benign growths with the latest techniques.

Ear piercing: Our physicians use single-use, hypoallergenic piercing kits to minimize risk of infection and allergies. Hypoallergenic gold-colored, silver-colored and simulated-diamond earrings are available. We use topical numbing cream, which is both comforting and calming, and consult with you to set the exact position for ear piercing to achieve the best aesthetic result.

NOTE: If more extensive surgical procedures are required such as sentinel lymph node biopsy or plastic surgery we refer patients to top specialists in Wellesley and downtown Boston. We work closely with the patients and physicians throughout the referral and treatment process, and we remain available for any questions or concerns that may arise.
