AUSTIN, Texas – August 28, 2017— Southwest Skin Cancer & Vein Clinic is pleased to announce the opening of Southwest Dermatology, a Buda dermatology clinic, in September 2017.

Venessa Peña-Robichaux, MD, is joining Southwest Dermatology and will be seeing patients at the new Southwest Dermatology clinic located at 211 FM 1626 in Buda, TX.

Dr. Peña-Robichaux specializes in medical dermatology and treats patients for both common and complex skin conditions.  Some of her areas of interest include atopic dermatitis (eczema), psoriasis, acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, vitiligo and skin cancer.   The clinic will have a specialized ultraviolet light box for treatment of difficult skin conditions requiring narrow band ultraviolet light (UVB).

In addition to the treatment of medical skin conditions, the Buda dermatology clinic will offer a number of cosmetic dermatology services available, including chemical peels, Botox and Dysport for fine lines and wrinkles and fillers such as Juvederm and Restalyne for deeper wrinkles and volume loss.

“I am excited to join the team at Southwest Dermatology,” said Dr. Peña-Robichaux. “As a dermatologist, my goal is to provide quality, cost-effective, evidence based medical care to my patients. I strive to treat my patients as I would my own family, always working as a team to find what works best for them.”

Dr. Peña is a native Texan and has been working as a dermatologist in the Hays County area for the last three years.  She is excited to join the Southwest team in Buda to continue to provide high quality care to her patients. She received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and completed her dermatology residency at the prestigious Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan.  She is board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology.

“Dr. Peña is a true gem to add to our clinic,” said Dr. Graves, owner and dermatologist at Southwest Dermatology. “Her diligence, compassion and dedication to her patients and her field are incredible. I feel privileged to work with her as a team to treat our Central Texas patients for their dermatology, skin cancer and leg vein needs.”
