About Me

Biographical Statement

Dr. Anna Axelson is a board certified dermatologist who treats a broad range of skin conditions. Her clinical interests include the medical treatment of acne and rashes such as psoriasis and eczema, skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, skin care in transplant patients, and management of the dermatologic side effects of cancer treatment. She also performs some cosmetic procedures such as lasers, chemical peels and Botox/fillers.

"When not working, I can be found running, cooking and exploring all that Michigan has to offer. Having grown up in Georgia, I enjoy bringing a southern slant to the Mitten State."

Care Philosophy

"The skin is our most visible organ and when our skin is healthy, it helps us feel our best. I believe in caring for the patient as a whole and tailoring treatment plans for each individual patient. From the seemingly most straight-forward acne diagnosis to more complex multi-organ diseases like lupus, improving skin health can enhance our psychological well-being, our mood and our very sense of self."

She was very knowledgeable n efficient


With *Axelson specifically, she was great! She seemed a little rushed and didn't seem to know anything related to my health but she listened to my questions & concerns - Her recommendations seem to be working so far.
