Manhattan Dermatology offers the latest in general, cosmetic and pediatric dermatology services in a friendly, intimate environment. “Our skilled, compassionate team delivers exceptional state-of-the-art care using the most advanced treatments and technologies,” says owner Dr. Ashley Magovern, a board-certified dermatologist in practice for four years. Dr. Magovern graduated from Georgetown University and completed her medical internship at Stanford University and her dermatology residency at the University of Chicago Illinois, where she was chief resident. She grew up in El Segundo and returned three years ago to be close to family and friends.

What would you like potential patients to know about you?

“Even though there is a big focus on cosmetic dermatology today, I truly enjoy helping patients by treating rashes, acne and skin cancers. That’s why I became a doctor.”

What’s one trend that is defining skin treatment today?

“Advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques and technologies (such as injectables, resurfacing lasers and skin tightening procedures like Ultherapy) enable us to recontour, restore and brighten the skin, allowing for a very natural, youthful approach to aging. I have found that people in the beach community want non-invasive, natural, conservative options for skin rejuvenation.”

How do you give back to your community?

“I sponsor local school district events, and I enjoy speaking arrangements that allow me to educate and speak to people about sun protection and skin cancer detection and prevention.”

Tell us about your family.

“My husband, Brian, is an orthopaedic surgeon–we met in medical school. We have two daughters, Mary and Samantha. My parents are still in El Segundo, and my brother works downstairs from my office. I really couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Tell us about the staff at your practice.

“We have a truly remarkable, dedicated staff. I strive to provide the ideal patient experience, which is only possible with the help of my amazing team. We take pride in providing our patients with the ultimate in care, kindness and skill.”
