About Central Austin Dermatology & Aesthetics in Austin, TX

Farady Dermatology Associates, Dr. Katherine Farady’s practice, and Central Austin Dermatology, Dr. Jay Hendrix’s practice, merged together in 2024 to operate under the name Central Austin Dermatology & Aesthetics with three locations serving the Austin community. We have been serving Austin patients for more than 25 years and offer medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology services.

We are all passionate about providing the highest quality dermatologic care with an emphasis on treating the person and not just the disease. We are committed to providing patient-centered quality care and our team of providers have a vast amount of experience. Our team has kept up with modern dermatology technologies, including tools, restorations and innovative methods of achieving and maintaining optimal skin health. While our expertise in dermatology tools and techniques has evolved over time, our commitment to our patient’s comfort and well-being has been consistent since we began our practices. We uphold this commitment with thorough and gentle dermatology treatment, as well as educating our patients to have a better skincare regimen outside of our office.

We care for your well-being.
