Signature Feature – Signature Feature is Dr. Ava's unique philosophy of beauty, which shifts the focus of one's appearance to the positive. Many dermatology practices focus on "fixing" aesthetic challenges. Dr. Ava and her AVA MD staff choose instead to bring out the focal point of each patient’s individual beauty. AVA MD's experienced staff works with each patient to determine their Signature Feature and then set out a treatment plan to highlight it. Part of this process may include elimination of "background noise" such as wrinkles and fine lines, dark circles, pigmentation, sagging, acne scars, etc., in order to help us draw attention to what is striking and original in each individual.
