Meet Dr. Ellen Turner
Dermatologist Dr. Ellen Turner is pleased to offer a complete array of dermatology services to her patients, including medical, cosmetic, surgical, laser, and superficial radiation procedures at two clinic locations including Park Cities at Preston Center, and Irving, located directly across from the Four Seasons.
Dr. Turner completed medical school at Texas Tech University Health Science Center in Lubbock in 2001. She performed her dermatology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where she received a strong clinical foundation for assuming the care of such dermatologic conditions as skin cancer, acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and immunobullous diseases of the skin. Her training instructors included Dr. Ronald Grimwood and Dr. Eric Kraus for medical and surgical dermatology, and Dr. Anna Clayton for Mohs micrographic surgery. Her cosmetic competency and skills were obtained through her work with Dr. Tina Alster and Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in 2006.
A skin cancer diagnosis by Dr. Turner can offer patients a wide array of treatment approaches for best possible outcomes. Her Irving location offers a non-surgical option for certain skin cancers: superficial radiation treatment. This non-invasive and non-scarring procedure, for both basal cell cancers as well as squamous cell cancers, can be performed within minutes on a twice-weekly basis for patients who opt for this treatment approach.
As a practicing dermatologist, Dr. Turner also enjoys a focus on aesthetic procedures and is honored to be an Allergan Platinum Plus Partner. Her innovative approach includes comprehensive non-surgical alternatives designed to enhance the patient's facial volume and reduce lines and wrinkles while lifting the tissues of the face and neck. To achieve this to the best effect with minimal recovery times for patients, she utilizes Ultherapy®, Halo™ hybrid resurfacing laser, and radiofrequency microneedling plus injectables such BOTOX® Cosmetic, Kybella®, Voluma®, Vollure™ and Volbella®. She is proud to offer non-invasive no-recovery procedures such as photofacial rejuvenation, laser hair removal, treatment of facial and leg veins, skin tightening, and medical-grade chemical peels.
Additional body contouring options for fat hypertrophy include CoolSculpting® (including CoolSmooth PRO™ and CoolMini™) to achieve near-surgical results with no recovery time whatsoever. She has offered Sculptra buttock augmentation since 2017.
Dr. Turner has personally designed the dermatology office to provide the most up-to-date and innovative technology in dermatologic skincare, including Ultherapy®, The Sciton Joule with Halo™, the Sciton PROFILE® Platform (contains Broad Band Light photorejuvenation, Nd:YAG for vein treatment and hair removal, as well as Erbium YAG for facial resurfacing), Fraxel® Restore for non-ablative resurfacing, and CoolSculpting®/CoolSmooth PRO™.
The medical-grade spa employs two cosmetic consultants who are trained personally by Dr. Turner to achieve maximum results including laser hair removal, micro-needling, Diamondtome® microdermabrasion, medical-grade chemical peels, and facials.
In 2017, Dr. Turner expanded upon her study of medicine and pursued over 250 hours of coursework through the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. In 2019, Dr. Turner received her board certification in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, and now offers this in complement to her existing dermatology patients to provide even better outcomes.
Dr. Turner is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, the Texas Dermatologic Society, the Dallas Dermatology Society, the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and the Dallas County Medical Society. Dr. Turner is also a member of the medical staff at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. She served as a board member for the Texas Dermatologic Society for two years from 2014-2016.
