Dr. Arthur, a licensed and board-certified dermatologist, has practiced dermatology for twenty years. After completing medical school at Hahnemann University Medical School and a one-year internship, she moved on to practice in an accredited residency program for over 3 years. Once she finished her residency, she returned to Rochester to be closer to her family. In 2004 she opened her own dermatology practice and medical spa. She is fully licensed, experienced, and board-certified  in dermatology. Dr. Arthur helps countless patients discover their own natural, healthy skin.

Dr. Arthur works with faculty at Rochester General and Strong Memorial Hospital, teaching dermatology procedures to medical students and residents. She has conducted multiple clinical trials on acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, hair loss, glycolic acid, Botox™, Kybella™, and Neograft®. In 2012, Dr. Arthur was nominated to the Board of Directors of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children of NY (NCMEC). She lives in Mendon with her husband Michael and two children Abigail and Evan.

Cosmetic Dermatology

Our cosmetic dermatology procedures address unsightly skin conditions with minimally-invasive procedures. Say goodbye to stretch marks, enlarged veins, discoloration, wrinkles, and skin creases. We can add volume and vitality to your skin, restoring a youthful, healthy glow. When we pair our procedures with only qualified products, you’ll find our cosmetic dermatology solutions more effective than what you’d find elsewhere. You can also purchase our products independent of our services either online or in our office skincare boutique!

Once this protein is injected beneath the skin, it naturally dissolves on its own over time. After procedures, the targeted skin looks fuller, more relaxed, and radiates a youthful...

Dr. Arthur took such good care of the wound on my leg in such a short time. I had been to several doctors with little success. She is more than kind!  

- SCMM from Rochester, NY, Patient at Helendale

Dr. Arthur is confident and knowledgeable, and always remains very relatable. She followed my case closely and even called to check on me when I had to cancel a visit due to a sick child.

- Marie from Victor, NY, Patient at Helendale

Thank you so very much for your warm welcome and assistance when I come in for my appointments with my grandson. You all went above and beyond to help and I appreciate it immensely. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

- Maureen A. Rochester NY, Patient at Helendale

I have been a patient of Dr. Arthur for many years. My visits to Helendale always include a great experience and a friendly face. The staff is courteous and professional. The office is pristine and a feeling of tranquility washes over you as soon as you walk through the door. Stacey is my beauty guru. She keeps me young and beautiful! They are always coming out with new techniques and technology to ensure optimal results.

- Rachel G. Greece NY, Patient at Helendale

I depend on Helendale Dermatology to keep my skin as healthy as it can be.

- Dor, Hilton NY, Patient at Helendale

It is always a pleasure to go to Helendale. They are very knowledgeable and honest about what is best for your individual needs. I feel very confident and comfortable and I highly recommend Helendale Dermatology & Medical Spa.

- Elizabeth M. Greece NY, Patient at Helendale

"When I come to Helendale Dermatology from the time I walk in the door, they have a smile on their face and make me feel like I am the most important person at their office."

- Deanna, Webster, Patient at Helendale

"I have been going to Dr. Arthur for over 10 years, she has always made me feel comfortable."

- Janine, Penfield, Patient at Helendale

"I am always pleased with the results I get, they tell me what to expect and that's what happens."

- Carolyn, Rochester, Patient at Helendale

I had the procedure done over one year ago and have had tremendous results. The procedure itself was virtually painless and Dr. Arthur and the staff guided me through the process, helping me determine where the best places needed to be covered along with my input. After a few months, you could see the results with new hair growth which has lasted to this day. I highly recommend R. Arthur.

- Anonymous, Patient at Helendale

I had the old fashioned procedure years ago, but was not very pleased with the result. I was self conscious about the huge scar on the back of my head and found the coverage was not very impressive. I was much happier with the NeoGraft procedure as there was no scarring and the number of grafts able to be done made a much more impressive impact on my overall look.

- Joe, Patient at Helendale

get ready, you're getting your hair back

The Hair Center at Helendale

Everyone experiences daily hair loss to some extent, but extreme hair loss, known as alopecia, occurs when the body loses the ability to regenerate new hair follicles to replace those that fall out every day. Alopecia can affect both men and women, albeit with different hair loss patterns and levels of extremity.

Our solutions for hair loss depend on the patient’s specific condition. Some patients react well with gentle, moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. In more extreme cases, we prescribe topical medication, oral medication, and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method.
