About Fresh Dermatology

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, a culture of kindness and integrity. Where every patient receives the time and individual care they deserve.

She also wanted a name that represented her goals for her patients. Dr. Thrash and her staff treat both men and women with medical and cosmetic concerns. Medical problems are addressed with a thorough and meticulous approach. Cosmetic outcomes are always natural, with an emphasis on individual safety.
