Pediatric and Adolescent Dermatology

Mount Sinai’s Department of Dermatology is deeply committed to offering state-of-the-art dermatologic care to our pediatric and adolescent patients.  Our caring staff is particularly sensitive to the needs of young patients. Whenever possible, we use topical numbing cream to make any necessary procedures as painless as possible and do all we can to make your child’s visit a pleasant experience.

Our specialists see children of all ages from the birth to 21 years of age. Our pediatric dermatology team members are highly trained in the treatment of a wide variety of pediatric and adolescent skin conditions, including acne, atopic dermatitis, molluscum, warts, alopecia, pigmented and vascular birthmarks, as well as skin conditions associated with genetic and systemic disorders. Additionally, our physicians’ interests further include hemangiomas and autoimmune conditions such as vitiligo and alopecia areata.

Pediatric and Adolescent Dermatology Treatments

We offer minor surgical procedures such as acne surgery and the biopsy or excision of atypical moles. We also offer laser treatments, including pulse dye laser therapy for vascular birthmarks (such as port wine stains) and laser hair removal. Furthermore, we are fortunate to have the excimer laser and phototherapy available in our Department for the treatment of conditions such as vitiligo, eczema, and psoriasis.

Involvement with the Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai

In addition to seeing patients in the outpatient setting, our pediatric dermatologists are also involved with inpatient consultations, working in collaboration with other pediatric services at the Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai to care for patients on the pediatric inpatient floors, in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and the pediatric emergency room.
