Treasure Valley Dermatology’s Skin Conditions & Treatments

Offering medical, surgical, and cosmetic procedures, Treasure Valley Dermatology specializes in preventative health solutions and treatments for all types of skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, melanoma along with a handful of other dermatology concerns.

One of the most recognized skin cancer treatments with the highest reported cure rate is Mohs Micrographic Surgery. Mohs surgery is the immediate and complete microscopic examination of the removed cancerous tissue so that all “roots” and extensions of cancer can be eliminated. Dr. Portela, a member of the American Society of Mohs Surgery, has performed thousands of Mohs micrographic surgical procedures. It’s safe to say he’s one of the best Mohs surgeons in Boise.

As for cosmetic procedures, one of the most popular at Treasure Valley Dermatology is fillers, used to plump the skin of the face. Dermal filler provides viable and long-lasting results in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as in plumping up the lips and filling in the cheek area. Utilizing the newest procedures and techniques, you can rely on board-certified dermatologists to help ensure you’re receiving the treatments that are best for you and your skin.

The Importance of Dermatology Yearly Check-Ups

Like a yearly wellness check-up with your primary care provider, Dr. Portela recommends seeing a dermatologist annually to check your skin, hair, and nail health. If you have been exposed to the sun more regularly, have high-risk moles, certain skin conditions, or if you are past a certain age you may be asked to schedule check-ups more frequently.

Second Treasure Valley Dermatology Location Opened in 2020

Treasure Valley Dermatology opened its first dermatology clinic on Eagle Road, serving the Boise, Eagle, and Meridian area in 2018 and filled appointments quickly. Dr. Portela along with Mariya Ostermiller, a Board Certified Physician Assistant with the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA), promptly became patient favorites. Both providers became highly sought out for their honest approach, level of expertise, and regard for their patient’s satisfaction.

Due to high demand in the Boise area, TVD opened a second location in Boise in early 2020. Located centrally on Emerald and Curtis, Treasure Valley Dermatology has made it even easier for patients in Boise to visit their clinic. They’ve also added another Physician Assistant, Jacob Tebbs who started in August 2020.
