MINNEAPOLIS (August 28, 2017) – Patients are continuing to search for a single, trusted source for their skin care needs. Responding to this patient-centered trend, Zel Skin & Laser Specialists’, a dermatology-directed skin care clinic, announced today that its Edina clinic now provides general and medical dermatology in addition to cosmetic dermatology services. The company also announced the addition of dermatologist Elisabeth Hurliman, M.D. to its growing medical staff.

General dermatology services now offered at Zel Skin & Laser Specialists’ Edina location includes the diagnosis and treatment of all skin conditions, skin growths, skin infections, and hair and nail conditions. In addition, the clinic will offer total body exams to assess the skin for abnormalities, possible skin cancer lesions, and overall skin health.
