On-Site Diagnostic Lab and Surgical Facility

advanced technology
Our dermatoscope allows for maximum magnification.

At Congress Cosmetic Medical Corp. in Pasadena, CA, your comfort and satisfaction come first. Our state-of-the-art, on-site surgical facility features several types of technology to achieve these goals. If you have an abnormal lesion, we can examine it with a dermatoscope. This tool makes it easy to distinguish between suspicious and benign cells, meaning our doctors can make more accurate diagnoses at our lab and avoid unnecessary biopsies. Should you require treatment for skin cancer, an especially important service for our California sun-loving patients, the dermatoscope allows us to remove no more tissue than is absolutely necessary. We also offer a range of surgical procedures to help you look and feel their best, including liposuction, face and neck lift surgery, and blepharoplasty. Patients may choose to enhance their results with non-surgical procedures including laser rejuvenation, BOTOX® Cosmetic, fillers, or microdermabrasion.

I have been coming to this office for years. Dr. Mehlmauer has removed several skin cancers. I have been seen by the other two doctors as well. All three of these women are caring, helpful, kind, knowledgeable and professional, everything you want in a doctor. Ditto their staff. Five stars is not enough. I'd give this office ten.

If you are wondering if Dr. Mehlmauer is the dermatologist for you, the answer is yes. This was my first experience with a dermatologist and I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Mehlmauer and the practice as a whole. From the office staff to the esthetician, everyone was so incredibly nice and helpful. I only have to go once a year. But, honestly, they are so wonderful I kind of want to go all the time!
