Dr. Martha Funkhouser has returned to the area, refreshed from a year-long sabbatical in England and ready to resume her general dermatology practice at Princeton Dermatology Associates.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time in England, but I’m glad to be back,” said Dr. Funkhouser, who spent the year at Cambridge University with her husband and three children. “I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and new patients at Princeton Dermatology Associates.”
As a dermatologist, Dr. Funkhouser treats skin conditions involving the skin, hair and nails. She sees patients of all ages for general skin care, surgeries and cosmetic procedures. “Many patients first come to me for mole checks or skin cancer checks,” she said. “I also treat a lot of acne, eczema, psoriasis and warts.” Dr. Funkhouser also performs skin surgeries, and removes everything from skin cancers to benign growths such as cysts.
Dermatologists also are specially trained to treat nail and hair ailments. These include nail fungus, psoriasis and infections, as well as scalp psoriasis, seborrhea, scalp rashes and hair loss. “People experiencing itching, redness or irritation anywhere on their skin – and that includes the nail area and the scalp – should come in for a check-up. There can be simple ways to treat these conditions,” she said. “Many primary care doctors refer patients with rashes and skin lesions to us because we are skin specialists.”
Dr. Funkhouser noted that patients also come to her when they start to experience changes brought on by time. “Many women, in particular, are looking for ways to turn back the clock, especially as they hit middle age,” she explained. “I offer help through cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels, collagen, RestylaneT, sclerotherapy and BotoxT, as well as laser procedures.”
This doctor is well positioned to offer her patients sound general dermatology care. She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biology from Stanford University, and her medical degree from the University of Minnesota. She then completed her dermatology residency at the University of California at San Francisco. Dr. Funkhouser is Board Certified, and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology and the New Jersey Dermatologic Society. She’s been practicing for 12 years.
“I really enjoy what I do,” Dr. Funkhouser said of the profession that’s also enabled her to raise a family. “I see the results of my work, and how pleased my patients are to find relief from skin disorders.”
Princeton Dermatology Associates was established nearly two decades ago by Roderick T. Kaufmann, Jr., M.D., to provide specialized care for the skin, ranging from medically necessary treatments for various skin conditions such as acne, rashes, sun damage and skin cancer, as well as cosmetic services. The practice also houses the Aesthetics Center of Princeton, which provides a wide range of medically supervised clinical and cosmetic services for the public. Princeton Dermatology Associates is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for these and other dermatological concerns. Some Saturday hours also are available. The practice takes most insurances.
