What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

At DermWellesley, we take the extra step to make sure each patient gets individualized attention and personalized care. Dr. Wise and her team pride themselves on taking the time to thoroughly evaluate each patient and listen to their skin concerns and skincare goals. Whether for medical or cosmetic dermatology, each patient is treated with respect and made to feel comfortable and cared for.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

It is important to find a provider who listens to your comments and concerns and offers a truthful assessment of how best to help you achieve your goals. With so many options out there for skincare and skin health needs, it is paramount to meet with a doctor who has been extensively trained in both medical and cosmetic dermatology.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

I love all things skin. The skin is often a first clue to underlying systemic disease states and, as a dermatologist, sometimes we are able to make that diagnosis before anyone else. In addition; because we offer both medical and cosmetic services; there is an ever- changing landscape that keeps us intellectually stimulated and engaged each and every day. New procedures; techniques; and medications are always in the pipeline and we get to be on the forefront of this very exciting time in dermatology and in medicine in general. My favorite part of my job, however, is getting to know my patients and helping them achieve their goals-- whether it be diagnosing a skin cancer, eliminating wrinkles, helping with acne, or something in between!

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

While I love helping patients with facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers and Botox and laser; I also love my Vivace for radiofrequency microneedling (it simultaneously tightens; lifts; and helps with texture and even scarring) with NO downtime. I have a fantastic device (the AEROLASE laser) that not only treats active acne; but also helps to rejuvenate the skin of the face and give a radiant glow. My other favorite procedure that we offer is miradry; which uses heat energy to permanently destroy the sweat and odor glands in the armpits. This is completely non-surgical and has been LIFECHANGING for my patients.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

I LOVE hearing candid feedback from my patients. The best compliment is when a patient tells me that everyone remarked how refreshed and rejuvenated their skin looks; but didn't know they had anything done! I feel that less is more; and my goal is always to make my patients look like a more refreshed; but natural version of themselves.

What do patients have to say about you?

"A couple of years ago Dr. Wise discovered a tiny spot on the back of my upper arm. This turned out to be an evolving melanoma which was removed successfully. If she had not spotted it so quickly and determined that it needed to be removed; I might not be here today to write this review praising her for her expertise."

"Excellent! Dr. Wise is a top notch physician. As a physician myself; I have been very impressed. She has a terrific bedside manner and demeanor. She has treated multiple members of my family and I have been thrilled with her knowledge and accurate diagnosis not to mention the success of the treatment plans. I have personally learned from her. She is also the go to person for cosmetic procedures. Dr. Wise is very skilled and experienced in a variety of treatments that have amazing results. Her office staff is very friendly and even took extra time to find coupons to offset cost. Excellent physician and highly recommended for both medical and cosmetic appointments."

"I have been seeing Dr. Wise for cosmetic dermatology for a couple years and was really excited when she branched out on her own to open DermWellesley. Her new office space is first class; her staff are knowledgeable; professional and friendly; and she herself is a miracle worker. She won't oversell you but she is helpful in terms of recommendations on to address expressed concerns; she will refer you out if need be. Most importantly; I have been extremely happy with the short- and long-term results!! Thank you; Dr. Wise! You're amazing! I tell everyone about you"
