The clinic also offers medical and surgical dermatology services, including treatment for acne, eczema, moles, skin spots, skin cancer, psoriasis, fungal conditions and more.
For those who want better-looking skin, Dermatology Geneva offers innovative and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Your dermatologist and your medical esthetician Amber Maloni, Licensed Esthetician, Certified Laser Clinician, will work with you to achieve your desired cosmetic outcomes. Some of the treatment options may include:
- Cosmetic consultation: Your care team will meet with you to analyze your skin and discuss your skin care goals. Using leading-edge products and treatments, they will recommend a personal skin care regimen to help improve your skin's texture, tone and overall appearance.
- Skin care consultation: Your care team will help you learn how to build a personalized skin care regimen for your face and body to meet your needs and improve your skin health and appearance.
- Extractions: Extractions remove sebum, oil, and dead skin cells that can clog your pores and cause blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. A dermatologist or medical esthetician performing an extraction can remove pimples instantly without the risk of infection and scarring. Comedone extraction is a widely used method of treatment for common forms of acne. An aesthetician may extract blackheads (open comedones) using gentle pressure around the pore opening.
- Basic facial: Facials use cleaning and extracting products, massage techniques and special equipment to give you cleaner, healthier and more radiant-looking skin.
- Facial add-on: Enhance your facial treatment by adding dermaplaning or a light glycolic peel.
- HydraFacial® Signature: This noninvasive treatment cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, hydrates and adds antioxidant protection to get rid of dead skin cells and other impurities. In addition, HydraFacial Signature delivers serums to your skin for added moisture.

- HydraFacial Keravive®: Using suction and hydration, this treatment cleans hair follicles while removing dirt, oil and dead skin.
- Clear and Brilliant (face, neck and upper chest area): This treatment can help reduce visible signs of aging. It is gentle method of repairing skin damage.
- Epionce Refresh Lite peel: Offering the benefits of a skin peel, this light treatment has little to no recovery time.
- Epionce Mal-e peel: While reducing bacteria on your skin that may lead to skin issues, this treatment improves your skin’s hydration. It also brightens your skin and speeds up skin cell turnover.
- Epionce Sal-e peel: This treatment offers a formula that cleans your pores with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory elements to boost your skin’s clarity.
- Glytone peel (30%, 50% or 70%): Glycolic peels offer many benefits. They remove damaged, dull layers of skin and dead skin cells, which helps with issues including scars, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne, wrinkles and fine lines. We’ll choose the peel with the level of glytone that fits your needs.
- Sciton BroadBand Light® and Intense Pulsed Light: These treatments lead to smoother, brighter skin by using light to regenerate cells. They can help with issues such as redness, sunspots, discoloration and pigmentation.
- SkinPen® microneedling (face, neck, scars and upper chest area): The SkinPen enhances your body’s healing process by causing controlled microwounds with a microneedling device.
- Injectables and fillers: Aesthetic injections can relax your face and reduce signs of aging, like wrinkles.
Injectables include: BOTOX®, Xeomin® and Dysport®
Dermal fillers include: Juvederm®, Sculptra® and Restylane®
Talk to your dermatologist or medical esthetician about which injectables or fillers may be right for you.
- Dermaplane: This procedure exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and facial hair.
- Cutera® Laser Genesis for hair removal: Laser Genesis is a leading-edge, non-damaging laser treatment that stimulates your skin’s natural processes to reduce signs of aging. It also promotes a vibrant, healthy-looking complexion. Laser Genesis can help with redness, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture issues and scars. Laser hair removal can stop or slow hair growth in the following areas:
- Facial regions, such as lips, chin and brow
- Bikini area
- Hands, arms and shoulders
- ProFractional™ laser: This resurfacing treatment can improve skin tone and texture and reduce the effects of scars, fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of removing the entire surface, the procedure removes narrow channels of skin, which results in a wound-healing response and leaves surrounding tissue intact, minimizing the recovery time.
- Microlaser peel: This peel is a laser treatment that removes a thin layer of damaged cells. As the skin heals, new skin regenerates. This treatment can improve tone and texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage and pigmentation.
- RevLite Q-Switched laser: This nonablative skin resurfacing therapy reduces hyperpigmentation, melasma and solar lentigines of the skin.

- Fraxel®: This nonablative laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin to improve tone and texture without extended recovery time.
- ResurFX™: This fractional nonablative resurfacing procedure can improve the appearance and texture of scars.
- Platelet-rich plasma therapy: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be used for hair restoration or for facial and skin rejuvenation when it is added after microneedling or certain laser treatments. A small sample of your blood is spun, resulting in enriched plasma with growth factors that can be applied where needed. For hair restoration, PRP can affect growth by stimulating the cells of the hair follicles. After microneedling or laser treatments, PRP can be placed on skin to help enhance the wound-healing process.
- CoolSculpting® and CoolTone®: CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical procedure for fat reduction that can be used in many areas of your body. CoolTone is used to tone and firm your stomach, thighs and buttocks. To achieve your desired outcomes, you may need multiple treatments with CoolSculpting and/or CoolTone.
