Dr Welsh has a subspecialty focus in rosacea, acne scarring and laser procedures for a wide range of medical and cosmetic indications. Dr Welsh is also a cosmetic injector and performs treatment with cosmetic injectables. She works closely with our team of dermal therapists and cosmetic nurses to deliver optimum results.
She has come to understand is the dividing line between what we consider medical and cosmetic is very blurred. This is particularly true when it comes to treating skin conditions. As a result, she sees it all as a continuum and therefore feels strongly about offering our patients a whole range of services to address their particular needs and concerns without judgement.
Dr Welsh offers both medical and cosmetic consultations at our Sunbury location. For medical appointments, Dr Welsh only accepts new patient’s for certain conditions and a referral is essential. Please contact us for more information.
