He was already a proud Zionsville resident, but Dr. Scott Guenthner is beaming even more now that he has opened a Dermatology Center of Indiana office in his hometown. It follows the original Dermatology Center of Indiana’s location in Plainfield, expanding the breadth of the group’s coverage.
“Since 2002, we’ve seen 62,000 patients in the practice,” Guenthner said. “I consider us the premier dermatology provider for the western Indianapolis area and all of western Indiana, for that matter. The primary reason for opening in Zionsville was we felt the area is one of significant growth and we also felt there is a significant dermatological need there.”
Dermatology Center of Indiana provides general dermatological medical care and surgeries for such things as skin cancer, acne, rashes, warts and other skin conditions, as well as Botox treatments, thermal fillers, medical spa procedures (facials, waxing, vibra-dermabrasion) and more. DCI also offers the NeoGraft hair restoration treatment that Guenthner calls “state of the art.”
“It’s been around for 15 years but only in the U.S. for five or six years,” he said. “The biggest difference is there’s no scar (from where the healthy follicles are harvested on the back of the scalp). There’s also less down time, less pain and discomfort and a much higher graft ‘take’ (growth success) rate. With the traditional treatment, the take rate was 50-60 percent. With NeoGraft, the take rate is over 90 percent. Also, with the older methods, you can’t wear short hair because of the scar. With NeoGraft, you can.”
Guenthner and his physician’s assistant Michaela Wehr, another Zionsville resident, head up DCI’s Zionsville location at 6639 Whitestown Pkwy. They are hosting a NeoGraft VIP event for select prospective candidates on Dec. 11. For more information on DCI or the NeoGraft procedure, call 732-8980 or visit dermindy.com.
