Sponsored Post:  Who else is up to their ears in skin issues? Your teen has got a serious case of acne, your husband needs that mole checked and you’re looking to freshen your face with a little ... well, something. While all that may be inevitable, rushing from doctor to doctor isn’t. Instead, you can bring everybody to Margaret Ravits, M.D. and Associates Dermatology, which can help people of all ages with both medical and cosmetic dermatology needs. The team, led by Dr. Margaret Ravits – who spent more than two decades as Chief of Dermatology at Hackensack University Medical Center –treats everything from rashes to psoriasis, skin cancer screenings to Mohs surgery, Botox, peels, dermal fillers, and more. Oh, and Margaret Ravits, M.D. and Associates Dermatology makes things even easier by offering early morning and evening appointments so you can squeeze in a visit before or after school or work. Unfortunately, figuring out dinner that night will still be on you...
