A comprehensive catalog of skin care solutions

Our name says it all: Forefront Dermatology is literally at the forefront of the latest innovations in skin care.

Our Wausau dermatologists treat a wide variety of diseases involving the skin, hair, and nails, including chronic and complex conditions. We also offer skin cancer treatment and detection as well as an extensive list of cosmetic treatments and procedures. Whatever your skin care needs may be, it’s likely that you will find a solution here.

Your needs come first

Your skin’s health is and will always be our top priority. Using a highly personalized approach, our Wausau dermatologists will develop an action plan to fit your specific needs. You’ll receive compassionate care in a professional, friendly environment – not just the first time you visit, but every time.

Our experienced, board-certified dermatologists and skin cancer experts also take great pride in educating patients so you can have a more active role throughout your treatment. It’s our job to arm you with the knowledge to protect your skin and keep it healthy for years to come.


See a Wausau dermatologist for any skin condition

The skin is the largest organ in your body – with all that space to cover, sometimes things go wrong. Whether you’re embarrassed by acne or rosacea, suffering from an unexplained skin condition, or need a thorough skin cancer screening, our Wausau dermatologists can help. We treat an extensive list of conditions involving the skin, hair, and nails, including psoriasis, eczema, melasma, birthmarks or moles, hives, warts, alopecia, ingrown nails, lice, and many others. We also have a dermatopathologist on staff who can analyze samples of your skin, hair, or nails by microscope to help make a diagnosis.


Skin exams: annual and as needed

The American Academy of Dermatology and the American Cancer Society both recommend that you have a full-body skin cancer exam once a year. However, be sure to make an appointment to see your Wausau dermatologist if you notice any changes in your skin, such as redness, discoloration, or itching. Any new skin abnormalities, especially spots or patches that begin to change in appearance, should also be checked right away.

Protect yourself against skin cancer

At Forefront Dermatology, we take skin cancer very seriously. After all, skin cancer accounts for more than half of the cancer cases reported each year. Your best defense against skin cancer is early detection. Our Wausau dermatologists will closely examine precancerous and cancerous spots to detect melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer.

If you are diagnosed, we offer a variety of skin cancer treatments, including standard excision, cryotherapy, and photodynamic therapy (PDT). Our Wausau office also has a surgeon who specializes in Mohs surgery, which is the most effective treatment for many non-melanoma skin cancers.

Cosmetic services you can trust

Every patient deserves to look and feel their best! But with all the options for cosmetic procedures out there – including BOTOX®, fillers, and chemical peels (just to name a few) – you might be unsure of your next step.

Come see us at Forefront Dermatology, where all cosmetic procedures are performed by a board-certified Wausau dermatologist who is specially trained in cosmetics to ensure your safety. In addition to the procedures listed above, we also offer Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) treatment to reduce the appearance of port wine stains, scars, or other skin conditions, as well as microneedling with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Together, we’ll discuss your options and create an action plan to meet your cosmetic goals.
