Do you look in the mirror and love what you see? If the answer is no, then we would love to help. At Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics, our dermatologist is committed to correcting a wide range of skin concerns in order to help our patients look and feel their best. On a daily basis, we see both women and men of all different ages who are looking to improve the appearance, tone, and texture of their skin. Our team has years of experience diagnosing and treating some of the most commonly occurring skin conditions. If you are near the Borough Park area, these are some of the conditions we can help address.
Lines and wrinkles
In the past, dermatologists were often limited in the methods we could utilize to minimize lines and wrinkles (two of the most common signs of aging). Today, we have a multitude of options such as Botox and dermal fillers. Depending on the treatment area, we can utilize these injectables to smooth out the skin, leaving patients looking younger and rejuvenated. Dermal fillers can also be used to replace lost volume in the face to improve contours. In certain instances, we may recommend both treatments for a full ‘liquid facelift.’
While many people enjoy laying out by the pool or on the beach, the harsh truth is that prolonged UV exposure can have extremely harmful effects on our skin. In addition to the increased risk of skin cancer, UV exposure can discolor the skin, leaving areas of dark pigmentation commonly referred to as sun spots or age spots. We can treat sun damage through several different methods including chemical peels or laser therapy.
Acne and acne scars
While most of us have experienced breakouts in our life, those who have acne have a unique understanding of the havoc it can wreak on the skin. Individuals suffering from acne have to deal with whiteheads and blackheads on a daily basis. Breakouts from the clogged pores can be extensive and embarrassing, and over-the-counter medications are rarely enough for serious cases.
At our office, we provide customized acne treatment utilizing a combination of methods to reduce outbreaks. In addition to treating the breakouts, we also offer patients who have experienced long-term scarring as a result of acne.

Other common skin concerns
Rosacea is a skin condition that leaves raised, red, acne-like bumps on the face. While there is not a cure for rosacea, its symptoms can be controlled through the help of medical dermatology. We also teach patients how to avoid triggers to minimize outbreaks.
Psoriasis is a condition that causes red, scaly patches on the skin. We take a comprehensive approach to treating psoriasis, which can include topical and laser treatments.
Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is a common condition characterized by rashes on the skin that appear red and cracked. Some patients experience only mild symptoms from eczema, while others may have outbreaks that are painful and itchy. The exact cause of eczema is unknown, although we are usually able to identify triggers such as:
- Extreme temperatures
Treatment is comprehensive and may involve avoidance of the trigger along with medications including steroids, anti-itch creams, and antihistamines.
Excess hair is a concern among many patients, many of whom are tired of the never-ending cycle of plucking, waxing, and shaving. Unwanted hair can be eliminated through a series of laser hair removal treatments that target hair follicles and leave remaining skin untouched. Laser hair removal can be used on many different areas of the body and is suitable for both men and women. Results with hair removal treatment are gradual and will improve over time.
Dr. Khrom uses the SPLENDOR X laser hair removal device by Lumenis, which features unique square spot technology. That means the laser energy applicator is square in shape, as opposed to most devices, which have round spot shapes. While this may sound like a minor difference, it has tremendous benefits. Just imagine trying to cover a surface with round tiles. Of course, there would be large overlapping areas or gaps. The benefits of square spot technology include:
- Uniform coverage for predictable results
- Elimination of uncomfortable “hot spots,” which occur where laser treatment spots overlap
- Enhanced safety, because uniformity reduces risk of burning
- Faster treatment times
- No need for touch-ups of missed spots
If you live near Borough park and are experiencing any of these conditions, we invite you to call Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics at 718-615-4002 to schedule a consultation.
