Here’s what RM had to say about our Botox treatment:
“I had the pleasure of trying the Newtox (newest Botox injection) and am thrilled I did! The staff at Minars was very efficient and got me into seeing the Dr. with no wait time. The waiting area was very pleasant and comfortable. I was a little hesitant to try something that just came to the market but WOW! I’m very pleased with my results. Dr. Timothy Wu was one of the best Dermatologists I’ve encountered in my years of medical treatment. He listened to my concerns and needs. I look natural, vibrant and more youthful! All my friends have asked me what my secret is and I say Dr. Timothy Wu at Minars dermatology. Highly recommend!”

Acne Treatment Options We Offer
Acne Vulgaris – pimples and “zits” – almost everyone has experienced this skin disease in one form or another. The exact cause of acne is complex and only partially understood. It’s important to understand we do not “cure” acne, we control it. It takes months to get your skin clear (not days or weeks). Expect to be on your medicine for at least two months, because it will take that long to see real results.
One could oversimplify and say that acne is caused by sticky skin cells in the opening of the hair follicles. The material produced by sebaceous glands is part of the reason that the cells are sticky. The cells form “plugs” in the opening of the hair follicle, and this is called a comedone (a “white-head” or “black-head”). Some of the comedones “explode” and turn into big red “papules” and “pustules”.
The acne treatments for acne can be divided into “home therapy” and “office treatments”.
Home Remedies for Acne
This is the regimen that our doctor has prescribed for you. It may consist of acne creams, washes, pills or all three. There is no shortage of effective acne treatments. Treating acne requires patience (you must think in terms of months, not days or weeks). But with time, your skin will clear. For really stubborn acne we use Accutane. This drug also requires a little extra effort (monthly blood tests etc…), but the results are dramatic and consistent (it literally “wipes out” acne every time we use it).
Professional Dermatologist Acne Treatment Options (In-Office)
Peels (dissolve the “plugs”). There are two types of facial peels for acne:
1) Chemical peels – such as salicylic acid peels
2) Physical peels – such as microdermabrasion
Both have the same goal – exfoliating skin: especially those sticky skin cells that block the hair follicles and cause your acne. The choice between salicylic acid and microdermabrasion depends on your skin type and in some people they can even be used together, for a greater effect.
Acne Facial Treatments
The “Acne Tune-Up” Facial (remove the “plugs”)
Your medicines will prevent new comedones, but eventually, some of these plugs will need to be mechanically removed one by one. This can only be achieved by our estheticians. The “tune-up” includes steaming the skin, using acid peels and/or microdermabrasion to soften the plugs blocking your hair follicles, careful extractions to remove the plugs, and soothing masks to decrease redness.
Laser Facials for Acne
There are several laser treatments for acne we offer in office, including the popular carbon laser peel AKA “the Hollywood peel”.
Cortisone Injections (shrink the deep “pimples”, prevent scarring)
A cortisone injection is the only treatment that is going to make that big red “underground” zit go away in 24 hours instead of three weeks. If you have an “emergency zit”, and need an injection, please call the office and we will get you in that day for a quick visit.

REAL PATIENTS, REAL COMMENTS
It was difficult finding a professional dermatologist office that first focused on clinical issues and then went on to the cosmetic options. Everyone in the office is pleasant and helpful.
My appointments are always right on time . I would recommend this office to anyone needing a dermatologist, male or female.
I love this place for the reason I have two big brown spots on my face that I been covering up for three years. I’ve been going to spas to do facial and all they did was more damaged. I go to Minars one time and the Dr was very nice to me explained what I had and gave me a cream for my spots , its been 3 weeks and it’s working, it’s fading. I still have more to go but for the first time I don’t have to wear so much make-up in this FL heat. i feel good again. The place is nice they took my insurance and I paid my copayment. I will go back and tell my friends about this place.
I love this place! The staff is very helpful and friendly. When I make my appointments I don’t have to wait for more than one or two minutes before they call my name. I would definitely recommend this place! And Diane Muzic is the best esthetician in the world!
Amazing staff and doctors. I was referred by a friend and will never go anywhere else!
This office is very well organized. There is almost no wait time. The staff are very friendly and professional. I saw Dr Norman Minars who is both very experienced and personable. The procedure was quick and almost painless. I’d definitely come back for future dermatological needs.
As a parent you look for kindness and confidence when having your children treated. This is what I found with Minars. Both of my children see Dr. Huo and we couldn’t be more happy with the results each time. I have recommended this place several times and am surprised by the reviews on Yelp. I have never had a problem and will continue to recommend Minars to others.
I have been going to Diane for my laser hair removal treatments on my bikini and lip , and I have to say that the results are amazing. She’s very knowledgable and knows what she’s doing, makes the process quick and easy. So far I’ve had 3 treatments and my hair has slowed the growth rate down to 3 1/2 months at a time without hair! Amazing !! Completely happy with my results and I can’t wait to continue my journey to hair free .The office is clean and welcoming.
I just had a quick skin check, so can’t comment much in depth. I liked how up to date they are with technology- you can email your insurance card to them. Some places are still weird about having it on your phone.
Everyone was pleasant and I was seen on time. Practicioners name I forget, started with an M, but she was really nice and put my mind at ease on some suspicious moles.
Keeping an eye on the billing as I read some reviews on here about overbillling. Will update if necessary. They did call before to let me know my insurance had been flagged- which makes no sense as its been accepting claims fine all month.
Love the office staff, the efficiency and the professionalism. We have been patients for close to ten years and it’s been an all-around excellent experience, from acne care to electrolysis.
I have been going to Dr. Todd Minars for several years now, and have always received nothing but the most friendly, professional and timely services. Their office is immaculate and very nicely decorated in the waiting area. Going to the dermatologist isnt always the most fun thing to do, but the whole staff at Minars Dermatology makes you feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you Dr. Todd for always being on the cutting edge of your field… I will always trust you with my skincare needs!
I have been going to Minars Dermatology quite frequently the last few months. I have had appts with Dr.Todd and Tracy for different reasons. They were both professional and knowledgeable. I have also seen Diane (Aesthetician) and she is great. The office staff is pleasant. I’ve never had any problems with Minars Dermatology. I for sure recommend them.
Had a great visit with “Minars Dermatology”. The office was beautiful, clean and modern. The staff was very friendly. Dr. Todd Minars took his time and was friendly and thorough. Great experience! I brought my six year old to see him. Very warm and friendly, took the time to make my child feel comfortable. I highly recommend “Minars Dermatology”. Will definitely be back!
Dr Todd is a wonderful doctor and a caring human being. He makes time for all his patients (even the last minute calls). His office is incredibly efficient. Excellent care.
Fantastic office with a great staff! Appointments are always on time, and the doctors are very nice & professional. This is a very well run office and your questions are always answered patiently and thoroughly. I’ve never had a bad experience here and highly Recommend them for any of your dermatology needs!
A+ doctors, A+ facility, A+ staff, A+ service. I’m so happy I found this place. I’m extremely picky when it come to doctors but this place has greatly exceeded my expectations. My doctor is Dr. Todd Minars, he’s very knowledgeable and left me impressed with the way he approached and treated my skin condition.
Also, I was interested in some skin cosmetics (laser) and he and his dad (Norman Minars) were able to coach me on the treatment. They are both dermatology professors at University of Miami; it can’t get better than this.
I first started with Dr. Todd but then continued with Diane and she’s amazing. She replies quickly to the emails when making appointments. Good thing about this place is that you don’t have to be tied down to a package like other laser removal places.
I have never seen a dermatologist on a regular basis but now I am so happy I now have one that I trust for amazing service, true understanding of what I need and a clean, welcoming office. The staff are super attentive from when you walk in the door to when you check out. I have seen Dr. Todd for both skincare and anti aging needs. He was conservative yet thoughtful and understanding when it came to making recommendations. I really appreciated all of the time he took with me and how he explained step by step what he wanted to do. For someone new to getting Botox, he made me feel completely comfortable and the results are amazing. I can’t wait to go back!
I am super happy and recommend that anyone looking for dermatologist check out Minars Dermatology.
This is a fantastic place with top notch doctors. Dr Minars is extremely knowledgeable, quick to diagnose and help with solutions. Even has great sense of humor. I highly recommend him for your dermatological needs.
I’ve been going to Dr. Todd for about 4 years. He is absolutely awesome. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. He has spotted things that have required removal and referred me to the proper doctors in the office for moes surgery. The office is the most efficient office I have ever seen. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to see the doctor.
I was very pleased with the services I received. The office is clean, and the staff has accommodated me at the last minute. Dr Todd Minars is very knowledgeable and thorough. Dr Vivas is also very sweet and answers all my questions without making me feel hurried. She’s even prescribed a compound cream that has markedly improved my skin.
Excellent – professionalism all around! From doctor to front desk. Absolutely will return & recommend your office to others! Thanks!
Best run medical practice in South Florida in my opinion..I am a retired physician knowing what to look for when I require my own care.I have referred my family & friends to drs Todd & Norman Minars without hesitation.The staff is friendly & courteous and the doctors don’t make you feel rushed.A+++++++
