Cosmetic Services

Looking to enhance your appearance without cosmetic surgery? Hamilton’s Dr. Peter Vignjevic can help. With years of experience performing dermatology services, Dr. V can treat a variety of skin conditions, including sun-damaged skin.

Over many years, sun exposure leads to skin damage such as fine lines and wrinkles, liver spots and broken blood vessels, as well as thinning of the skin and a leathery texture. There are several ways to help the skin rejuvenate itself
