You take your kids to a pediatrician because you want them to see a doctor who knows the world of children’s health inside and out, right? But what about when your kids need to see a dermatologist? Turns out there are indeed pediatric dermatologists out there who’ve completed additional training and fellowships in order to treat the specific needs of children’s skin. And with only 300 in the entire country, we’re lucky to have one right here in Bergen County. Dr. Sunny Chun, founder of SKC Dermatology in Paramus, is a double-board certified dermatologist and pediatric dermatologist, utilizing her expertise to treat the specific issues of babies, kids, and teens, including birthmarks, pigmented and vascular lesions, diaper rash, hair and nail disorders, atopic dermatitis, and acne.
Dr. Chun – a mom of twins herself – goes out of her way to make sure her office is welcoming and comfortable to her tiniest patients with a warm, friendly, and compassionate environment, exam rooms decorated with custom agate rock murals, and even a separate children’s waiting room specifically designed to keep kids entertained.
With a comprehensive practice that also includes medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology and a focus on patients of all ages, Dr. Chun has special interests in the prevention and treatment of skin cancer, and the management of eczema, psoriasis, pigmentation disorders, hair loss, and benign and malignant skin lesions. She’s able to address every kind of dermatological issue at her sophisticated state-of-the-art office (designed by an award-winning NYC-based celebrity interior designer) and accepts all major commercial health insurances and Medicare. As for her cutting-edge cosmetic dermatology practice, Dr. Chun offers everything from injectables to medical-grade peels to platelet-rich plasma treatments, all administered by Dr. Chun herself, not a nurse or physician’s assistant.
If you’re ready to give your own skin a boost, mention Bergen Mama for the month of March, Dr. Chun is offering a free cosmetic consultation for new patients along with a variety of other specials including Botox for $10 a unit and 20 percent off other treatments like fillers, the minimally invasive lifting procedure InstaLift, and platelet-rich plasma revitalizing facials, micro needling, and hair treatments (great for both Bergen Mamas and Dadas).
Because while we wish we had the kind of youthful skin our kids have, we don’t. And a little help never hurts ...
