QUOTE: “For me, nothing is as rewarding as restoring a face, a smile, an identity.”

“Your skin is the cover of your ‘book’,” said dermatologist Dr. Timothy Rosio, studying the before-and-after photos of his patients in an album. “It’s the largest organ of the human body.” He paused at the acne-scared face of a lovely girl. “Skin,” he continued, “is your first line of protection; it controls temperature, produces Vitamin D, and dials your immune system up or down. Critical and  easily damaged.” He looked up. “It’s fixable though,” he said, turning to the “after” shot of the same girl featuring a radiant, healed face. “And that’s really what we’re all about.”

He is referring to Anew SkinDermatology in El Dorado Hills. This is a cosmetic and laser surgery center, a MedSpa, also specializing in Mohs cancer surgery.

Dr. Rosio’s experiences as a physician, parent, Scout leader, professor, writer, author, humanitarian, healer, peer teacher, and technologist seem current, and self-realizing, not old or forgotten markers on his journey.

Combining the technologies of lasers and radio frequency systems with an old-fashioned sense of compassion, this physician brings new development to traditional standards of care. Acne (not confined to teens), cancer, burns, accidents, infections and genetic anomalies are the leading contributors to skin issues. Stimulation of collagen production is often the key to restoration.

It isn’t surprising Dr. Rosio’s business focus has been on the radio frequency technology Fractora, which stimulates and arranges new collagen. He uses the non-invasive, mild treatment to remove wrinkles, sun damage, signs of aging and even fat cells.

In fact, Dr. Rosio has been a pioneer for over 20 years in new technology and techniques for both cosmetic (lasers, etc) and medical (MOHS cancer surgery).

Mohs, a microscopically controlled surgery used to treat skincancer (also known as chemosurgery), was developed in 1938 by Dr. Frederic E. Mohs. Dr. Rosio served on panels with Mohs for many years. The cure rate with Mohs surgery is between 97 percent and 99.8 percent for the most common type of skin cancer.

In recent years the dermatologist was awarded Physician of the Year for his public service work, an honor which also included Pioneer of Healthcare Award, and the Ronald Reagan Memorial Gold Medal Award. It was presented by former Congressman Tom Reynolds, together with an invitation to receive the honor at dinner with President Bush and members of Congress.

Rosio’s humanitarian programs (locally, nationally, and globally) have included work with the Boy Scouts, Food Bank, FBI sex trafficking victims, (often branded to prevent escape) Indonesian outreach (his next trip is in March), as well as saving a senior’s sight on Christmas Eve and healing the scars of a little girl who was mauled by a pit-bull, the last two cases posted on YouTube.

Patients who first come to the Anew Skin center are often discouraged. Disfigured skin is, of course, noticeable. But hope is always the first stage of treatment. Part of the healing involves using products the doctor recommends. “There are effective lotions and consumable products that really work,” he explained. “We recommend specific regimens to speed patients’ recovery.”

The book on advanced dermatology treatments is constantly being written and rewritten. “We develop and pioneer treatments,” Dr. Rosio said. “We’re always breaking new ground.”

Timothy Rosio earned his MD from the University of Arizona College of Medicine, interned at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix and completed residency at the Stanford School of Medicine, Dermatology. It was when he began studying medicine in London that he discovered dermatology, and immediately knew it would be his life work.

It was indeed. Thousands of successful operations later the doctor reflected on his choice. “For me, nothing is as rewarding as restoring a face, a smile, an identity.”

Over the years Dr. Rosio has received countless awards, spoken in major international seminars, and contributed heavily to medical and dermatology publications. He has authored 20 separate chapters in medical compilations. But in the end, it’s about changing lives.

The scrapbook is haunting. Skin-ravaged human beings stare out burdened by the disfigurement, smiles dampened by its seeming permanency. It is not a buoyant moment until the expert skin healer, a twinkle in his eye, turns the page.

Anew Skin is located at 4355 Town Center Blvd. Suite 210, El Dorado Hills and in Auburn at 3290 Professional Drive. The doctor and his team shuttle back and forth several times a week. Dr. Rosio can always be reached at 916-939-3594.
