Dr. Eva Emperatriz Oliva de Bolaños provides outstanding dermatology services to children and adults who depend on her skills, experience and honesty to give them successful results for medical problems regarding hair, skin and nails. Safe, healthy and innovative treatment methods cure skin infections, regenerate cells and rejuvenate aging skin.
Dr. Oliva began her professional career in 2002 and is now the medical director of the Puntoderma Dermatology Clinic in Las Majadas commercial center of Guatemala City. Dr. Oliva is currently on the Board of Directors of the Guatemalan Academy of Dermatology, and regularly attends international medical conventions throughout Latin America, either as a invited speaker or as a participant in workshops for up-to-date training in the most recent dermatological advances. She is also a faculty member of the medical school of Rafael Landívar University, training graduate students and consulting in their research studies and thesis presentations. Among her patients, students, and other doctors, she is well-respected for being ethical, honest and sincere in both business and personal practices.
For the comfort of her patients, the doctor’s devotion is to maintain your health and beauty in perfect harmony, through medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Oliva spends all the time required to examine and evaluate various aspects of the patient’s health status, knowing that the skin is normally a reflection of underlaying systemic conditions. From integral treatments of routine problems to the resolution of complex cases, patients trust her expertise and guidance. She expertly manages the dermatology problems of newborn babies and of her elderly patients who need extra special attention.
Certain skin conditions are often misdiagnosed and inadequately treated by friends, or even doctors, who are unaware of their nature. In cases of allergies, moles, acne, stretch marks, scars, fungal infections, care of wounds and burns, Dr. Oliva provides regular monitoring, always considering the level of acute or chronic conditions in the skin. Resolution of skin conditions normally rely on conventional treatment guidelines, but Dr. Oliva believes that there will always be an innovative method that solves the problem in a new way.
Various minor surgical procedures are performed by Dr. Oliva at the Puntoderma Clinic every day. Skin cancer is always a concern for patients, so she will take a biopsy (tissue sample) for comprehensive study, so there is no doubt about the cancerous nature of blemishes on the skin. At the clinic, she will remove benign or pre-malignant tumors, or cauterize unwanted spots with cryotherapy. At your first consultation, you will be informed about the importance of protecting your skin from direct sun and artificial ultraviolet rays. Dr. Oliva says, “Using sun block is the best anti-aging protection and should be used every day.”
Dr. Oliva uses the most up-to-date innovative options for anti-aging treatments to regenerate, revitalize and rejuvenate the skin. Peels, botulin toxin injection (Botox®), hyaluronic acid, mesotherapy and intra-dermatherapy with biostimulating growth factors renew cells in all the skin layers promoting collagen production. The doctor has recently introduced the use of bioactive enzymes, for localized treatment of cellulite, sagging, scars and stretch marks. The liquid is drained from problem areas with a technique that does not cause pain or irritation. This new method defines the “Art of aging gracefully”.
Dr. Eva Oliva invites anyone with worrisome skin conditions to visit her at Puntoderma, to benefit from her personal commitment to providing high-quality health services in an environment of care, warmth and well-being. She supports each patient with her positive attitude and medical talent, guiding them toward optimal health with clearly defined goals for success.
