Dr. Mata allows time to answer your questions and appropriate photographs may be shown to illustrate relevant points.

Skin Care Products
Skin care is a priority in Dr. Matas office. After careful consideration, Dr. Mata prefers the Nu-Derm Skin Health Restoration System for helping restore skin to a healthy state, free of disease and deterioration. The system is also intended to bring the skin to an active and tolerant state so that it responds better to a rejuvenation or surgical procedure, heals faster, and is less likely to exhibit an undesirable post-procedure response.
