At the three dermatology offices of Hector Wiltz Jr., MD, located in Kendall and Homestead, Dr. Wiltz collaborates with Eric Bussear, MPH, PA-C, to help patients of all ages achieve and maintain healthy and beautiful skin.
They combine their knowledge and vast experience to offer patients a full spectrum of medical and aesthetic dermatologic procedures, including treatments to combat acne, skin conditions such as psoriasis, skin cancer and the signs of aging.
Dr. Wiltz, who is board certified in dermatology, received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Pennsylvania and completed a dermatology residency at UMDMJ University Hospital in New Jersey. He has been practicing at his Bird Road office located in Kendall Regional Medical Center for 20 years, and specializes in medical dermatologic procedures.
Eric Bussear, PA, began his medical career at the age of 19 as a Corpsman for the U.S. Navy. He received his Physician Assistant degree and then obtained a master’s in Public Health from Nova Southeastern University where he also served as a professor. Bussear has obtained vast experience in surgery throughout his medical career, and specializes in cosmetic dermatologic procedures and surgery.
The pair offers a variety of treatments to help patients gracefully fight aging, including chemical peels, exfoliation treatments, Botox, injectable fillers and laser procedures. To determine patients’ goals and establish the best treatment plan, Bussear offers new patients a free cosmetic consultation.
Botox, one of Bussear’s favorite treatments, helps combat forehead and brow lines and gives the eyes a lift.
“I love the results my patients achieve with Botox,” he said. “It’s the No. 1 cosmetic treatment in the country and there’s a reason — it flat out works. When administered properly, it’s the perfect anti-aging remedy and it changes people’s lives.”
For a one-two punch against aging, Bussear recommends partnering Botox treatments with filler — such as Juvederm, Radiesse or Restylane — to replace volume lost in the cheeks and lips and plump up laugh lines.
“Lips are my specialty,” Bussear said. “I can help patients achieve the lips of their youth — lips that are fuller and have that natural edge.”
Dr. Wiltz and Bussear offer a variety of lasers, which are effective treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, pigment disorders, blood vessels, vascular birthmarks, psoriasis, angiomas, vitiligo and unwanted tattoos and hair.
“The CO2 laser remains the gold standard for resurfacing skin,” Bussear said. “With this treatment, patients need to plan for downtime. On the other hand, the CO2 fractional laser delivers powerful results without the harsh side effects. I typically perform this laser on a Friday and people are back to work on Tuesday.”
In the age-old fight against acne, which can affect people at any age, chemical peels can be combined with pharmaceutical grade exfoliating products to achieve clearer skin. These same treatments also are successful to combat pigmentation issues common in Latino and Asian skin.
Preventing, diagnosing and treating skin cancer is a priority for Dr. Wiltz and Bussear. They take time to educate their patients on the proactive and preventive steps they can take to keep skin healthy at all ages and stages. Dr. Wiltz also is a teaching practice. Students from Miami Dade College and Keiser University Physician Assistant program shadow Dr. Wiltz and Bussear to gain clinical knowledge from expert dermatologists.
