Dr. Michelle Foley is a board-certified dermatologist specializing in medical and surgical dermatology, with a passion for non-surgical aesthetics and facial rejuvenation. Her practice approach is to provide personalized care and education for each of her patients. Dr. Foley works with both men and women to help them look their best utilizing non-invasive techniques; combining injectables, topical agents, lasers and physician-strength skin care. “Best results are always achieved when you partner with your patient to build a treatment plan that is right for that individual.
