Meet Our Doctors | Pittsburgh, PA & Columbus, OH

In 1981, The Skin Center Medical Spa was founded by board certified cosmetic surgeon, Dominic Brandy, MD, to fill the growing demand for a medical practice dedicated solely to cosmetic plastic surgery and anti aging skin care for the face and body.

With three Skin Center Medical Spa locations in Pittsburgh PA and one in Columbus Ohio, our staff of medical professionals offers only the most advanced, medically based skin treatments to help improve the visible signs of aging.

''We had one goal in mind when we founded The Skin Center Medical Spa and that was to improve our patients' enjoyment of life.'' said Dr. Brandy. ''I think we accomplish that by giving them more confidence in the way they look and feel about themselves everyday.''

Sharing Dr. Brandy’s enthusiasm for helping people realize their goal of a more youthful appearance and a healthier outlook, Fernando Colon, MD, board certified plastic surgeon and medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa in Columbus, Ohio, believes that while physical appearance may not be the most important attribute, it strongly influences self-esteem. ''If you are uncomfortable with some aspect of your appearance, it most likely affects the way you perceive yourself and how you interact with others,'' said Dr. Colon. ''One small improvement in the way you look can have a positive impact on your life.''

At The Skin Center Medical Spa locations in Pittsburgh PA and Columbus Ohio, we strive each and everyday to ensure that we are doing our part in helping our patients live the most rewarding lives possible. This is why we treat every patient with compassion, respect and only the highest level of professional care.

Our commitment to exceptional patient care is achieved by not only meeting our own internal benchmarks for patient care, but also adhering to the strict standards set forth by two of the most prestigious accreditation agencies in the field  -- The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Labortories (ICAVL).

  • The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) 

The AAAHC serves as an advocate for the provision of high-quality health care through the development of nationally recognized standards.  This accreditation is recognized as a symbol of quality by third-party payers, medical organizations, liability insurance companies and state and federal agencies and the public.  The Pittsburgh office based surgical center achieved accreditation status in 2002.  The Skin Center Medical Spa's facilities in Gahanna, OH achieved accreditation status in 2009.  The new Ambulatory Surgery Center in Mt. Lebanon, PA was approved for accreditation in June 2012.

  • The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Labortories (ICAVL)

The ICAVL is also dedicated to establishing high standards for patient care and diagnostic testing facilities.  The ICAVL provides facility accreditation programs for various types of medical diagnostic imaging.  The Skin Center Medical Spa attained recognition for providing a high level of patient care and quality testing in the diagnosis of vascular disease in February 2011.
