Dr. Kenneth Howe

Board-certified since 1994, Dr. Kenneth Howe focuses on both aesthetic and medical dermatology. As a cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Howe is known for his light touch. He believes that smaller, earlier interventions allow patients to maintain a youthful appearance while at the same time preventing or slowing further aging. Calm and reassuring in manner, Dr. Howe is an expert in guiding patients through the variety of available options, from the simplest topical agents to cutting-edge procedures. He values maintaining an open dialogue between doctor and patient throughout this process.

Beyond aesthetic dermatology, Dr. Howe cares for a variety of medical skin conditions, with a particular dedication to the early detection and treatment of skin cancer and the diagnosis and management of hair loss and acne. He has authored two chapters in a widely-used dermatology textbook, A Photoguide of Common Skin Disorders (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins 2003) as well as numerous medical articles in Dermatologic Surgery, Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, International Journal of Dermatology, Dermapathology and Cutis. Dr. Howe has been a featured panelist at the American Academy of Dermatology and has lectured before the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, the American Society of Dermatopathology, the New York Academy of Medicine, and the Pediatric Dermatologic Society. He has also served on the Advisory Board for LUBRIDERM®.

The work we do is a collaborative process between what a patient wants and what technology can achieve. If you stick to what is natural—and I always do—you do only what works for a particular face.
