JANINE HOPKINS, M.D.
Dr. Janine Hopkins, founder of Hopkins Dermatology and MD Minerals by Dr. Janine Hopkins, is a board-certified dermatologist in Monroe, LA. Dr. Hopkins established her medical practice in 1996 after completing her residency training in the Department of Dermatology at LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans. Dr. Hopkins was fortunate to train in a progressive program that emphasized a thorough education in all aspects of general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. She brought these skills to Northeast Louisiana introducing laser skin rejuvenation, tumescent liposuction, laser hair removal, and Botox injections for wrinkle reduction. Dr. Hopkins stays current on the advances made in her specialty in order to offer state of the art treatment options proven to be safe and effective. She performs "liquid face lifts" with fillers such as Restylane/Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse and Sculptra giving patients significant cosmetic rejuvenation without surgery. In addition to laser and cosmetic procedures, Dr. Hopkins performs advanced surgical excisions of skin cancer as well as nonsurgical treatment options for precancers and sun damage that include Levulan Blue Light treatments, IPL treatments and chemical peels. Her knowledge of medical dermatology allows patients to receive effective treatment for difficult and chronic skin diseases including eczema and psoriasis, as well as common problems such as acne and skin infections.
Dr. Hopkins is board-certified by the American Academy of Dermatology and is an active member of multiple dermatologic and medical societies including the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and Louisiana Dermatologic Society. Dr. Hopkins is an active member of the Dermatology Foundation as a member of the Leader's Society. She served as a Louisiana Vice State Chair for three years and is currently the Louisiana State Chair for this national fundraising organization that supports research in the field of dermatology.
Dr. Hopkins has grown her private practice from two employees in an office with two exam rooms and one surgery suite to a practice that now employs ten dedicated full- time staff members. She also regularly employs two to three part-time college students interested in pursing a career in medicine. Two certified laser technicians assist Dr. Hopkins with nonablative laser treatments including laser hair removal and IPL photo rejuvenation.
Hopkins Dermatology is a full spectrum dermatology practice located in a state of the art medical complex designed and built by Dr. Hopkins in 2003. This location is also home to MD Minerals by Dr. Janine Hopkins. This mineral makeup collection was developed by Dr. Hopkins in collaboration with Cathi and Lori French. The MD Minerals on-site studio allows clients to have private one-on-one makeovers with staff makeup artists and stylists. "MD Minerals by Dr. Janine Hopkins is not just a makeup collection but a complete concept that complements my practice approach to help patients in their pursuit to "be healthy, be beautiful."
Dr. Hopkins' practice philosophy is to focus on her patient's concerns and offer safe and effective treatment options that provide optimal benefits. "I love what I do and feel blessed to be a dermatologist. I strive to be caring, kind, compassionate, and above all competent in everything I do."
