A Three Tiered Approach to Dermatology

At VitalSkin Dermatology, we provide a comprehensive, three-tiered approach to skin health, encompassing general, medical, and cosmetic dermatology. This integrated approach allows us to deliver personalized and holistic care for all dermatological needs.

General Dermatology

General dermatology involves the comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, and management of a wide spectrum of skin, hair, and nail disorders. This includes inflammatory conditions such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, infectious diseases like tinea and impetigo, as well as neoplastic disorders, including both benign and malignant skin lesions. Collaboration with primary care physicians ensures integrated patient care and effective management of dermatological diseases.

Surgical Dermatology

Surgical dermatology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions requiring surgical intervention. This includes excision of benign and malignant skin lesions, Mohs micrographic surgery for precise removal of skin cancers with minimal tissue loss, and various reconstructive techniques. Dermatologic surgeons also perform procedures for cosmetic improvement, scar revision, and management of complex wounds. Advanced training in cutaneous surgery allows for optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.

Cosmetic Dermatology

VitalSkin Dermatology provides a wide range of cosmetic dermatology services designed to enhance your patients’ appearance. Our expert dermatologists specialize in advanced treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, laser rejuvenation, and chemical peels. We also offer personalized skincare regimens and minimally invasive procedures to address aging skin, acne scars, and other aesthetic concerns. By integrating the newest technology with a patient-centered approach, we ensure safe, effective, and natural-looking results, helping your patients achieve their cosmetic goals with confidence.

What Patients Are Saying About VitaSkin

The service and care we received at VitalSkin Dermatology had my teenager wishing “this could just be our regular doctor!” The office itself was clean, quiet, and modern which created a very comfortable atmosphere. The front office staff was welcoming and friendly and our nurse as well as PA Kincaid were both exceptionally personable, knowledgeable, and warm—even comforting my daughter as she expressed unease at the potential of having her blood drawn. We felt blessed to be accommodated on short notice by this practice.

Sara D.

Wonderful staff and excellent doctor! Dr. Babich has cared for my whole family, including my parents, my sister and her family and my family. My mom is now 93 years old and Dr. Babich’s patience and care of her is amazing. She’s so knowledgeable and takes her time to explain everything. So lucky to have her as our specialist!

Will Miller and Dr. Jeremy Youse are amazing, definitely the best skin care providers have ever seen. Will identified a malignant spot that another dermatologist missed and Jeremy removed all of the area successfully. Great providers in every way and super nice guys! The nurses and receptionist at VitalSkin are always nice and friendly too.

Exceptional patient care at VitalSkin - Mattoon. Everyone I interacted with went above and beyond for my needs and all did so with kindness and attention to detail. That genuine care for their patients and patient care is by far above what I am accustomed to-thank you to the entire team!
