She truly excels in her medical practice. Not only is she highly regarded by peers and superiors as being an outstanding dermatologist but also recognized by patients for her caring nature. This human-touch of going above-and-beyond her duties makes her special.
She is passionate about all aspects of dermatology including medical (skin checks, prevention and surveillance of skin cancers, skin diseases, rashes), surgical (excision of skin cancers, cysts, lipomas, etc.), as well as cosmetic interventions (neurotoxins, fillers, lasers). On the latter, coming from Latin America, where it is well known that beauty is among the top consumer-values in the region, Dr. Vivas understands that “aesthetic” is key to drive self-esteem, and as such aims at providing solutions that also take this element into account.
