About cosmetic dermatology
Dr. Jessica Saucier, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist, is the physician specialist of choice for providing expert skin care advice and performing skin related cosmetic medical procedures.
What is a board-certified dermatologist?
The 12 years of post-secondary education that it takes to become a board-certified dermatologist in addition to required ongoing professional training in the latest advances in cosmetic dermatology are an important part of what distinguishes a cosmetic skin care expert like Dr. Saucier from others. Her artist's eye and a perfectionist's attitude help a great deal too.
No one is more qualified than a dermatologist to treat problems of the skin. Dr. Saucier, our board-certified dermatologist, has earned that expert distinction by:
- Completing a bachelor's degree in Biology from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT);
- Completing 4 years of medical school at UT Southwestern Medical School becoming a medical doctor (MD);
- Completing a 5 year ACGME accredited combined residency in dermatology and internal medicine at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics;
- Passing the American Board of Dermatology exam;
- Participating in ongoing maintenance of board certification program; and
- Having a license to practice medicine.
Remember, the quality and safety of any cosmetic procedure depends largely on the knowledge and skill of the person performing the procedure. Undergoing a cosmetic procedure is not only about your appearance and convenience. At Rockwall Dermatology, your health and safety come first. That's why Dr. Saucier administers or supervises every cosmetic procedure in the clinic.
