Sid Danesh

Dr. Sid Danesh is a successful and respected dermatologist practicing and residing in Beverly Hills, California with additional offices in San Gabriel. Dr. Danesh did his training in internal and dermatology at Wayne State University in Michigan. He became board certified in both specialties.

Dr. Danesh chose dermatology because he believes it is a field of medicine that allows for innovative discovery. It is a field of practice that does not limit itself to one demographic or condition. People of all ages, ethnicity and gender seek dermatologic aid for their specific individual needs.

Being a skin doctor in sunny southern California provides a large client base of those who enjoy the weather too much in this age conscious Beverly Hills community. Patients seek him out to remedy the sun causes and to help those who are uncomfortable with their damaged skin and with the aging process that causes telltale wrinkles. Adjunct to his practice is also the treatment of acne, undesired body hair, and varicose veins. To counteract these conditions, Dr. Danesh utilizes a wide variety of methods often incorporating cutting edge procedures such as IPL (intense pulse light) fillers such as Radiesse, Juvederm, and Restylane, and laser hair removal, laser resurfacing techniques and Botox. To Dr. Danesh, dermatology offers a continuing learning experience with many challenges beyond maintaining a youthful appearance. Currently, he is a clinical assistant professor with the University of Southern California, University of California Irvine, Lomo Linda University and Touro University. Dr. Danesh has trained many medical students and residents from these universities in his office. He is a member of both the American Society of Dermatology surgery and the American Academy of Dermatology. Dr. Danesh shares a practice with his wife, Dr. Gina Danesh, who has interest in laser surgery and cosmetic dermatology.
