The Warmuth Institute of Dermatology is one of the most prestigious skin care centers in South Jersey. Led by Dr. Ingrid Warmuth, medical director, board-certified dermatologist and MOHS micrographic surgeon, the practice offers the full gamut of general dermatology and the latest cosmetic procedures. Dr. Warmuth is known for providing the most advanced modalities with treatment plans customized to each individual patient, and despite the adjustment to new operating guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, she and her staff—including Lauren Hartman, Brittany Davis and Parth Patel, board-certified physician assistants—continue to provide these essential services with the help of telemedicine.
We spoke to Hartman about the importance of keeping up with routine skin care and the easy-to-use telemedicine platform.
What general dermatological services do you offer?
Our office offers complete body examinations, treatment of acne, psoriasis, rosacea, eczema, hair loss, skin lesions, pre-cancers and skin cancers, hair and nail issues and anything skin related.
What are some common conditions that a dermatologist can treat?
Acne, psoriasis, eczema, hair loss, actinic keratosis, rosacea, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma and melanoma.
How can a person’s skin affect their overall self-esteem?
If your skin is clear then it impacts an individual’s mentality in a positive manner. It allows them to take on life to the best of their ability.
Should a dermatologist be a routine visit annually or only for certain people? What makes it so important?
Everyone should be seen yearly. If an individual has a history of skin cancer or pre-cancer, they are brought in every six months. Individuals can be seen for follow-up of various chronic skin conditions more frequently.
How often should someone receive a skin cancer screening and what might be some signs or markings that should be checked?
Skin cancer screenings are once yearly or every six months if an individual has a history of skin cancer or pre-cancer. Lesions that are abnormally shaped, have uneven edges, are larger than a pencil eraser, darker than other moles, multiple colors, changing color or evolving should be checked by a dermatologist.
Do you utilize any state-of-the-art technology or techniques for skin care?
We offer an entire aesthetic division that has many modalities for maintenance and keeping our patients feeling their best.
We offer eyelash extensions, hydrafacial, micro-needling, facial peels, and body contouring modalities such as CoolScuplting, VelaShape and Ultrashape, and facial laser resurfacing procedures.
In this time of stay-at-home orders, telemedicine is becoming crucial. Tell us about your telehealth options and how convenient and effective they are.
Our practice is being extremely innovative during this time by utilizing HIPPA-compliant telemedicine in order to always be there for our patients and provide top-of-the-line care. With telemedicine, Dr. Warmuth and the team can diagnose, recommend treatment and prescribe medication for non-emergency medical issues via video and audio conferencing. All you’ll need is a computer with a webcam, tablet or smartphone device.
It is easy to use, safe and convenient for our patients and most importantly an effective way to provide safe and continuous care for our patients.
What are some of the staff’s notable credentials in dermatology and what makes this practice’s approach to treatment unique?
All providers at our office are board certified and have the utmost credentials to deliver optimal care. Our unique approach is that we treat patients like they are part of our family at the Warmuth Institute. They are being educated and given treatment plans that are specific for them which will allow for the best results.
