We Want to Make

Your Skin Feel Good

Central Austin Dermatology & Aesthetics  sets the standard for personalized, advanced skincare excellence in Austin, Texas. Our team of board-certified dermatologists, combined with highly trained and supportive staff, have the skills that enable us to provide the highest quality dermatology services our patients deserve.

Our dermatology patients in Austin Texas come to us for the evaluation and treatment of all things related to hair, skin, and nails. We formulate individualized treatment plans incorporating traditional therapies and innovative approaches to common conditions such as acne. We work in partnership with you to determine which course of therapy will be most effective, recognizing there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to any condition.

We treat patients of all ages and understand we are building lifelong relationships. The problems we see in children differ from those we see in our adult patient population because of many factors. The strong UV rays within ATX demand we pay close attention to skin care throughout our lives. Our team is dedicated to making sure you understand your options – we are here for you every step of the way!

I’ve been a patient at Central Austin Derm for many many years, and specifically a patient of Shirien for many of those years. I never feel like she is in a rush, even if she is having a busy day. She explains what she is doing, listens to what concerns me, and is warmly professional.
