When Dr. Candace Thrash opened Fresh Dermatology in Lakeway, she put a lot of thought into the name.

It reflects her practice’s values: an environment that supports its staff, patients and community.  A small business that is green and sustainable (you should see our recycling bins).  Where every representative conducts themselves with kindness and integrity, and every patient receives the time and individual care they deserve.

She also wanted a name that represented her goals for her clients.  Dr. Thrash wants you to be healthy, feel youthful, and above all, be the best version of yourself.
