Laser procedures for the face and body are a safe and effective way to repair and smooth your skin to reduce the appearance of dullness from aging, acne or other skin issues. With lasers, only a portion of the skin is treated leaving the surrounding skin untouched to promote faster healing.
Dr. Challgren is a very good dermatologist. He is conservative in his medical recommendations and very friendly and caring. He has done amazing things for the overall look of my skin. Highly recommend him.*
My insurance changed about a year ago and I could no longer see Dr. Laura and I realized how wonderful she is compared to other dermatologists in the area. I have severe plaque psoriasis and have struggled to find ANY medication that even slightly helped. Since working with Laura we have finally found a medication that works wonders, Stellara. Originally I had to come into the office every 3 months to get the shot. The copay for most insurances isn’t cheap for a specialist… and when I mentioned this to her she told me that she really only needed to see me once a year for blood work and I could come and get the shot with a nurse to avoid the copay (as long as I promised to call if anything weird was going on). THEN after about a year of that, approved with my insurance me being able to give myself the shot at home. This way, I see her once a year and call her with any problems. Since changing insurances the new doctors I have met with want me to come in for the shot and see them every three months… which is really just a way to for them to make money in my eyes. I have had the same condition for going on 20 years and have been giving myself the Stellara shot at home for 2+ years… there is no reason I could see (that isnt monetary) for any dermatologist to see otherwise. I recently changed back to the previous insurance that Southern Derm accepts and I cant wait to make an appointment and make Laura my dermatologist again. As to office atmosphere- mostly adults… not really “kid friendly” when it comes to things to keep them busy (which doesn’t really affect me)… never have had to wait a long time…. easy parking…. and friendly nursing/ scheduling staff!*
This is the best dermatologist in Raleigh! I’ve dealt with eczema my whole life and been to many practices in Raleigh and Durham and this practice is the best! They have helped me come up with a wonderful treatment plan and go the extra mile several times a week to accommodate me and my infant son when I come in for light treatment. Tracy is wonderful and the nurse staff is so great. I’d give them 10 stars if possible!*
I rate Southern Dermatology/ The Skin Renewal Center a 100! They are awesome, no waiting, EVER, awesome staff, the office is spotless, and Dr. Boyse IS AMAZING…..LOVE LOVE LOVE HER, I will NEVER go anywhere else. I drive 1 1/2 hours to see her and she is definitely worth the trip. I highly recommend her and The Skin Renewal Center.*
Great experience every time I go. Very caring and everyone seems to really care about your problems and want to truly help you solve them. Dr. Briley ROCKS!*
I don’t think it can get any better than Southern Dermatology, the doctors, staff and many services offered are awesome. I have been going to Southern Dermatology for over 5 years. Dr Briley is my first and only attending dermatologist. Not knowing where to go and fairly new to NC, they were my first choice when I knew I probably had a skin cancer on my back. It was cancerous and I have had many treatments since for actinic keratosis, precancerous lesions. Because of the traveling distance I have attempted to find a good doctor who would be closer to no avail. I didn’t find anyone whom listened or would/could follow the treatment plan Dr Briley was following and I preferred given the alternatives. Long story shorter, I went back to Southern Dermatology and Dr Briley, never to stray again. I just don’t think there is any better place to go. The doctors, staff and service is awesome. Most of all, through out my continuing treatment, Dr Briley always lays out my options and I along with her input make the decision as to what treatment to pursue. That is not the case with most doctors.*
My daughter and I are both patients of Southern Dermatology. Dr. Challgren is so patient with Callie and has helped us really understand treatment options for her skin condition! I also want to say a big “Thank You!” to Dr. Boyse and Jill Jordan, the Neocutis representative – they recommended Neocutis Micro-Firm, and the sun-damaged skin on my chest and neck looks smoother and healthier after only a few days!*
Dr. Boyse has been my doctor for over 5 years, she is one of the best dermatologists I have ever had, both for skin care and dermatological needs. Five stars all the way!*
A+ for Dr. Briley and staff. I feel confident I am in good hands with Dr. Briley. She is attentive, caring and extremely knowledgeable . They usually are able to schedule me the next day and I’m always called back within 5 minutes of waiting in the office.*
I became a patient at Southern Dermatology (formerly The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center, PA) when my original doctor in Chapel Hill suggested I find someone closer to my home and work. I needed to have a skin condition addressed in urgent order. I searched around various online media and I came across Southern Dermatology. I called their office on Lake Boone Trail and asked if they were taking on new patients. The person that had answered said that they were. When I verified the type of insurance that I had, an appointment was scheduled for me. When I arrived at the office, I was greeted by the front desk person. After getting the obligatory paperwork out of the way and waiting for a short period in the waiting room, I was called in. The nurse asked me various questions to help determine my condition, etc. Then, after a short wait, Dr. Challgren walked in and introduced himself. He recommended the appropriate treatment and I have been under that treatment for the past six weeks. Since then, I have gotten to know nearly the entire staff and I can vouch that these are some of the nicest and most professional individuals that I have met. I would highly recommend this practice for their ability to address even the most complex dermatological issues. My experience has been excellent!*
