Welcome to Miami Skin Institute
Our guiding philosophy dictates that lifelong skin health is governed by prevention of skin aging and/or early detection and treatment of skin conditions.
When you are choosing a skin healthcare provider or facility, we urge you to choose one that is run by a Board-Certified Dermatologist . This is the best way to insure a trusted opinion and procedural result. At the Miami Skin Institute, Dr. Jegasothy and her highly educated staff perform procedures only according to her specific directions. If you are being seen or treated by one of us at the Miami Skin Institute, be assured that Dr. Jegasothy is guiding your overall skin health plan.
Our telephone staff may answer many of your general questions, but until you are actually seen at our office can we address your specific skin needs. After that, you are part of "our family" and will be provided with products, prescriptions, and recommended procedures most suited to your individual skin needs, sometimes even over the telephone. Just ask your friends who recommended you to us! Dr. Jegasothy's father was a dermatology pioneer in the 1970's, so she literally "grew up" in the specialty. This lends her an unparalled expertise in all types of skin issues.
Choose a Skin Care Professional
With the Best Credentials
We recognize that countless “medical spas” and non-board-certified cosmetic centers compete for your attention, especially in South Florida. We urge you to conduct your research personally and choose healthcare providers with the best education and credentials, and a sense of integrity. Dr. Jegasothy may actually discourage a patient from an unnecessary or unhelpful procedure and refers her patients to the most appropriate physician for their individual issue, when it is not herself. At the Miami Skin Institute, we are committed to the idea that our patients waste neither time nor money, and obtain the best result as soon as possible. Lastly, every one of us at the Miami Skin Institute is a modern, busy professional, much like yourself. We feel that a gentle touch in all of our dermatologic procedures yields an overall shorter recovery time. We appreciate the importance of this and pledge to perform all of our treatments with this in mind. Dr. Jegasothy strives constantly for ever-better procedural results with less pain and ever-diminishing “down time”. Our current patients appreciate this very much and we are sure you will also!
