Bill S

“Dr. Straughn has been a great doctor. I was referred to her by a friend that has been going to her for over 10 years. I love the fact that she is not just a doctor that continues to give you prescriptions after prescriptions that do not help with the issue. She took the time to have labs done and to work with me to find out what the root cause was. I have referred many friends and colleagues to her for other issues. I could not have asked for a better dermatologist.”

Denise S.

"I have been going to Dr. Straughn for over 5+ years now and she is great. She is very thorough with her care and treatments and she has helped me with quite a bit. She does have a passion for her field and she is by far the most knowledgeable dermatologist I have ever seen and I have seen my fair share. I have and would recommend her to anyone."

John D.

Dr. Straughn is The Best! Dr. Straughn is an awesome doctor. I took my daughter to see her in regards to her hair breaking off from ringworms in her head. Dr. Straughn was very thorough and gave me the best options to help with her condition. I felt like she listened to our concerns and made sure we understood everything that we needed to do. I left feeling positive that we had made the right decision in coming to see her. Her office staff was excellent and made us feel very welcome.”

Lauren J.

Awesome in every way! I have gone to several dermatologists in Atlanta but I haven’t found anyone like Dr. Straughn. She’s courteous, kind, knowledgeable & knows her stuff. Her staff has great customer service skills as well.”

Dermatology Questions

We take your skin very seriously and so should you.

At Buckhead Dermatology, we pride ourselves on providing individualized dermatological treatment for all skin types.

How often should I have a Skin Cancer Screening?

In the past decade (2009 – 2019) the number of new melanoma cases diagnosed annually has increased by 53 percent. The best way to prevent skin cancer is to get screened.

At least once per year.

Skin cancer is among the leading causes of death in the US.  Screening is a a very routine procedure to identify abnormalities in the skin.  As a board certified dermatologist, Dr. Straughn will be able to diagnosis whether legions are cancerous.

I am constantly getting razor bumps. What can I do?

Razor bumps usually occur as a result of shaving especially with curly or wavy hair. 

Here are some little tips:

  • Change your razor often
  • Shave with shaving gel or a creamy cleanser
  • Shave in the direction in which your hair grows
  • Press on the areas you have shaved with a cold damp cloth to close up your skin pores
  • At our Atlanta Dermatology Office we prescribe creams to soften the hair so that it is less likely to become ingrown.
  • We also recommend fading cream to remove unsightly blemishes that result from ingrown hairs

How do I treat ashy skin?

Hate dry, itchy skin on your face, arms, legs? Is that flaky scalp bothering you? 

To address ashy skin... need a skin or scalp product that will both moisturize the dry skin as well as exfoliate the dead skin cells.

I’m a grown woman with children, why do I still get acne even at my age?

The reasons for still getting acne at an older age could be the result of many factors. Understanding that acne among older women is actually fairly common.

Getting acne at an older age could be the result from many factors.

Clogged pores and hormones cause acne which can lead to blemishes and even permanent scars. At Buckhead Dermatology, we do a complete evaluation to make sure your hormones are in balance. Dr. Straughn, orders labs and spends time with you to develop the best plan for you and to make your acne go away.
