Dr. Sax Blog

At University Park Dermatology, Dr. David S. Sax offers his patients an unbeatable combination, unquestionable expertise, widespread professional accolades, and a dedication to quality, safe and confidential care. Dr. Sax founded his practice 16 years ago and accommodates the population of Sarasota and Manatee counties. He is a specialist in Mohs micrographic surgery, a meticulous stepwise technique for removing several types of skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. In addition to his dermatology residency training, Dr. Sax received advanced training in Mohs surgery and is able to perform the out-patient

procedure in a matter of hours by utilizing an in-house laboratory.

Adjacent to the current office, Dr. Sax added a comprehensive medical spa, Sanctuary at The Park, offering concierge level service and the latest cosmetic techniques, such as Botox, cosmetic fillers, intense-pulsed light treatments, ActiveFX CO2 laser, CoolSculpting and laser hair removal. Two full-time aestheticians on staff provide additional cosmetic services. The convenient location means clients can easily take advantage of medical and aesthetic services in one visit.

Dr. Sax is pleased to introduce the new Rohrer fractionated radio frequency system. The device uses small micro needles to predictably heat the dermis. Benefits include tightening of loose skin, as well as treatment for scars. Along with his other scar laser, the Cynosure 1540, Dr. Sax says, “We now have very successful treatments for improving scars and stretch marks.” The combined cosmetic and medical services are summed up in the practice’s goal of providing “the art of beauty and science of skin care.”
