Dr. Amanda Lloyd wants to help you look your natural best
The start of a new year tends to be a time for people to look for ways to improve their health and appearance. Many resolve to go to the gym regularly or start a post-holiday diet to start the New Year right. However, most people find that creating – and keeping – a New Year’s resolution throughout the year can be a daunting task.
Dr. Amanda Abramson Lloyd, a board certified dermatologist at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery in Encinitas, wants to help patients feel confident in their skin not just this month, but for the whole year through.
“Sometimes just addressing that ‘one little thing’ you see in the mirror every day can make a world of a difference in the way you see yourself,” explains Dr. Lloyd.
“Many people focus their New Year’s resolutions on improving their appearance, but limit their approach to diet and exercise. Unfortunately, as many of us have experienced over the years, people get discouraged after not seeing ‘immediate’ results, and those diets and workout routines only last for so long.”
Dr. Lloyd believes in providing personalized, tailored care with lasting results so patients leave feeling confident in their skin.
Dr. Lloyd knows males and females have different skin and will personalize a regimen for each patient to help meet each individual’s specific skin care needs. She is well trained in all aspects of dermatology including laser and cosmetics, skin cancer management including Mohs surgery and cosmetic reconstruction, medical dermatology and venous disease.
No complaint is too small for Dr. Lloyd as she understands “that one little x” that a patient sees in the mirror every morning is driving them crazy. She wants both her male and female patients to feel comfortable and knows the male and female aesthetic concerns are very different. Many times a patient has a wedding or big life event coming up, and they need to look your absolute best. Dr. Lloyd’s goal is to help each patient put their best skin forward and enhance your natural beauty so that you can be confident in their skin and can go take on the day without any hesitation.
She understands that some skin conditions, as well as the aging process, take time to treat and she motivates and encourages patients throughout their treatment.
Dr. Lloyd has published over 15 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals on various topics in the medical and cosmetic dermatologic literature, recently co-authored a textbook chapter on Laser – Tissue interaction and has presented at many academic meetings including the annual meeting for the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Her research is focused on the treatment of skin cancer in organ transplant patients.
She graduated from UCLA Honors College with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, received her medical degree from The University of Vermont College of Medicine, did her dermatology residency at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX where she was Chief resident and after residency she did additional training in laser and cosmetic dermatology, the treatment of venous disease and in skin cancer surgery and cosmetic reconstruction.
In her free time, Dr. Amanda Lloyd loves spending time and traveling with her husband Dr. Peter Lloyd, to locations where they can scuba dive and explore the underwater world. She believes that happiness is the key to life and hopes she can add some happiness to each of her patients’ lives.
