      Emil Tanghetti,

      Our Center specializes in the treatment of acne, rosacea, psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema and skin cancers. We have done many clinical research studies on these diseases as well. Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery is a training site for some of the cosmetic procedures such as Botox and Juvederm. We treat both Medical Dermatological conditions and also have expertise in Cosmetic Dermatology to help maintain the most beautiful skin for you. We are committed to helping young people with unwanted tattoos. For sixteen years we have treated eight to ten young people per week from the California Youth Authority who desire to remove their tattoos and we look forward to continuing this program. We also have participated in tattoo removal programs for the young people of Yolo County.
