“Patients wonder, why should I go to a doctor for skin care? Because I provide superior products and I know how to help you have beautiful skin.” – Tamara Ehlert, MD
Skin is the largest organ of the body and is often over-looked and frequently abused. Healthy skin is beautiful skin and improving the health and appearance of your skin is a tremendously cost-effective way to look and feel better.
The world of skin care is vast and confusing. Dr. Ehlert and her nurses make it simple for you by choosing products appropriate to your skin type, skin needs and busy lifestyle; instructing you in their proper use and providing backup and a constant source of new information to keep your skin healthy and lustrous.
Dr. Ehlert makes available to her patients only the best, most effective, scientifically-proven skin care products. She avoids products that contain harsh ingredients, fragrances, dyes and acne-producing oils. The products she chooses utilize the latest in skin-care technology but also feel good on the skin and work well under cosmetics. Dr. Ehlert’s physician-directed skin care programs are all-encompassing. Our skin-care program includes facial cleansers, toners, moisturizers, anti-oxidants, sun protection, fading agents, products for delicate skin around the eyes and lips, vitamins, peptides and growth factors for dry, oily, normal and acne-prone skin.
Dr. Ehlert continually assesses new products and currently draws from the following medical skin care lines:

Elure is a unique skin-lightening and brightening agent that targets melanin on the surface of the skin and breaks it down as it occurs. Elure contains Melanozyme, a patented, naturally occurring enzyme, and an enzyme activator that are applied in an easy 2-step process. With twice daily use, Elure can gently break down darker pigment as it appears to reveal lighter, lustrous skin in as little as 28 days. Elure contains no hydroquinone and does not prevent the deposition of color, but it is a rapid way to reduce unwanted color once it appears. www.elureskin.com
Dr. Ehlert also dispenses the following prescription products to complete your skin care program:
Renova .02% – not your mother’s Retin-A! This non-irritating, low-dose Retin-A in a soothing base exfoliates and stimulates collagen synthesis to smooth the skin, reduce fine lines, and treat crows feet and crepey under-eye skin.
Latisse® – The only FDA-approved treatment that has actually been proven to grow eyelashes making them longer, thicker and darker. www.latisse.com
Hydro -Q – a 4% (prescription strength) Hydroquinone to help fade existing discolorations on the skin and stop the last few steps in the process in the skin that allows new discolorations to form. Hydro-Q is a potent fading agent for sun-damaged skin and, along with sunscreen, a great form of protection from future damage.
