Dr. Michael Sinclair: Personalizing Cosmetic Care

March 11, 2014

Written by Michelle Alford for Scars1

Michael Sinclair, M.D., has been practicing medicine for over twenty-five years. He graduated in 1983 from University of Michigan Medical School. He then interned at William Beaumont Hospital and did his residency at Bayfront Medical Center. He is currently affiliated with multiple hospitals in Loxahatchee, Florida, including Palms West Hospital and Wellington Regional Medical Center. He served as the Chairman of the Department of Family Practice and Chief of Staff at Palms West Hospital.

Dr. Sinclair specializes in cosmetic medicine because he likes seeing how happy it makes his clients. “Patients truly appreciate what you do in cosmetic medicine,” he told us. “I get the opportunity to give them the very best I have to offer.”

Dr. Sinclair thinks that personalization is essential to good care. “I don’t do high volume work,” he said. “I spend a lot of time with each patient trying to maximize their results within their resources. I have a wide array of equipment, which allows me to perform a lot of different procedures and get the best possible outcome. There’s a saying in the industry, ‘if the only tool you have is a hammer, then everything looks like a nail.’ I have a lot of tools.”

Treatments vary significantly from patient to patient. “The type of treatment I recommend is specific to the patient. Many times they come in wanting to talk about a treatment that they’ve read about, but when we discuss what results they’re looking for we discover that a different treatment would be better for them.” 

The time to consider scar reduction is when your scars start bothering you. “People should be comfortable in their own skin,” he said. “If you have something that you want to change, then you should change it. I had a beautiful young patient with a malignant melanoma on the back of her arm. She required a wide incision, which left her with a scar that was six inches long and over half an inch wide. It was raised and impossible to cover with makeup. After using a combination of laser therapy and skin care products, the scar is nearly invisible and almost impossible to feel with her fingers. For the first time in years she is wearing sleeveless tops.”  

Dr. Sinclair is excited about changing treatments and future possibilities. “Treatments change monthly. The equipment continues to improve, and so do the results. Lasers have come a long way in a very short amount of time. Research is being done into using stem cells to regenerate scarred skin. I’m eager to see what comes next.”
