|"How one looks and feels about him/herself is the foundation of self confidence." Ben Behnam MD|
Dr. Behnam focuses on the health and wellness of your skin, hair and nails. The skin is the largest and most exposed organ of the body.
Schedule an appointment to see Dr. Behnam to diagnose and treat any skin problems. Dr. Behnam is very proactive in providing early diagnosis and treatment for skin cancer. Early treatment saves lives.
Cosmetic removal of skin tags, warts and moles can be done during an office visit. Dr. Behnam also provides biopsies for moles that are discolored or show other signs of abnormality.
Acne is a condition dreaded by all teenagers. This problem can follow an individual well into adulthood. The longer a persistent condition goes untreated, the worse the emotional and physical scarring will be.
Dr. Behnam will take his time to discuss any skin problems and help educate the patient in proper protection against poor diet, aging and sun damage.
A full skin check is typically performed once or twice a year. The purpose of a skin check is to examine the entire surface of the skin in order to make sure that there are no suspicious moles or any lesion that looks suspicious for skin cancer. Dr. Behnam performs a thorough skin check under a magnifier, examining every inch of the body. Dr. Behnam specializes in performing a full thorough, 10-point skin exam.

8. Arms, forearms, palms, fingernails, webs between fingers
9. Thighs, legs, feet, toenails, web between toes
10. Buttocks and groin area
If any lesion looks suspicious for skin cancer, then the area is either documented to be watched or biopsied. A biopsy is a sampling of a mole or a suspicious growth. It is send to the lab, where the dermatopathologist examines the slide and sends a thorough report to Dr. Behnam.

However, as soon as Dr. Ben Behnam entered the room, he was so calm, nice and patient, i no longer felt anxious about my visit! Dr. Behnam is very easy going, and very knowledgeable... He listens to you, comforts you, then takes care of what needs to be taken care of by a PROFESSIONAL!

Did you know the late-1970s/early-1980s situation comedy Three's Company was set in Santa Monica? Santa Monica's economy began to recover in the 1980s. An early sign of that change was in my favorite neighborhood of Ocean Park. Main Street, a quaint mile of sawdust bars and dilapidated stores selling old furniture, was upgraded by the concerted efforts of a new generation of owners. At the northern end of Main Street adjacent to the still-declining Santa Monica Mall, a city block was levelled in 1980 to build a new mall, Santa Monica Place. While the Santa Monica Pier, another favorite place of mine, had been preserved from destruction in 1973, it was nonetheless poorly maintained. Between 1988 and 1998, taxable sales in the city grew 440%, quadrupling city revenues. More than $500 million of private money has been invested into the Promenade, another favorite place, and the adjacent streets in the Bayside District. The 1990s saw continued development in Santa Monica. The Promenade caught on. Colorado Place, Water Garden, and other nearby office developments on the east side of town attracted MGM, Sony, Symantec, and other corporations. The Casa Del Mar returned to its former glory as a luxury hotel in 1999 after a reported $60 million renovation by the owners of the Shutters Hotel. Santa Monica passed a law in 2003 restricting the distribution of food to homeless people in the city. Some organizations have deliberately disobeyed these laws.
