In addition to lecturing, he has acted as Chief Medical Editor for Practical Dermatology, and had authored textbooks including, “Dermatological Atlas of Black Skin.”His research articles have appeared in numerous publications, most notably the American Academy of Dermatology and the British Journal of Dermatology. The mainstream media regularly turns to Dr. Connolly to educate consumers about skin care and skin cancer prevention. He was one of the first dermatologists to leverage social media, including YouTube, to help educate the widest possible audience about skin conditions and cancer. Connolly Dermatology with locations in Linwood, Barnegat and Cape May Court House is ranked among the top one percent of providers in the United States for dermatology.
“We are not some mysterious, intimidating academic entity. We’re friendly, real people. We operate efficiently, and focus on what works. We encourage questions, and teach our patients about their health. And we communicate to our patients in a straight forward fashion so they can make informed decisions about their care. In turn, this hands-on approach attracts top notched practitioners- passionate, hardworking people who care deeply about their work, and continue to raise the standards of care at our practice. That’s what sets Connolly Dermatology apart from all other practices, and will help revolutionize the way dermatology is practiced.”
For Dr. Connolly, teaching is in his blood, “My father is a physician, and my mother a teacher, so becoming a dermatologist and instructor was a natural fit for me,” he says. “My work constantly challenges my mind and spirit, and I consider it an honor to have received so many incredible learning opportunities over the years.
“The skin is the largest organ of the body and has so many important functions, including protection from the elements and regulating body temperature; and yet, many people tend to neglect the skin. We want to increase awareness that maintaining your skin’s health is vital to your overall well being. It’s important to have the skin examined on a regular basis because early skin cancer detection greatly increases you chance of full recovery. Prevention is paramount. One should always practice sun protection and schedule regular visits to the dermatologist.”
In addition to the medical-based conditions treated at Connolly Dermatology, the practice offers a full range of cosmetic treatments performed by Dr. Connolly and his medical team.
Prior to undergoing any treatment, Connolly’s team provides a comprehensive skin analysis utilizing state of the art imaging. The result is a new individualized skin care regimen to keep patients looking and feeling their best. Procedures offered at Connolly Dermatology include facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peel treatments. Laser therapy for unwanted hair, blotchy red skin, and age spots is offered. Options for wrinkle reduction include, Botox, Juvaderm and LAVIV to name a few.
In the age of spa and medi-spa proliferation, a true clinical dermatologist can be difficult to find. One needs an expert who will treat the entire person in addition to offering sound cosmetic advice.
Patients leave our office well-educated about their personal skin needs and the range of potential medical or aesthetic treatments. “An informed patient is a healthier and happier patient.” Dr. Connolly believes that patients should gain comfort in knowing they will never be sold a treatment or product that isn’t necessary and that the Connolly Dermatology staff looks to recommend the simplest and most cost-effective regimen.
