Iris Rubin, MD, is a board-certified dermatologist and has fellowship training in laser surgery. She graduated from Stanford University, and received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School. She was a dermatology resident at the University of Chicago Hospitals and at Harvard Medical School, where she also served as chief resident for educational programs. Dr. Rubin completed a laser fellowship in 2008 at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard’s Wellman Center for Photomedicine in Boston.

Dr. Rubin specializes in laser treatment of vascular anomalies and scars. Conditions include:
• Port-wine stains. It is best to refer patients as early as possible, even in the first few weeks of life. Starting treatment early has been shown to improve treatment outcomes. Treatments are ideally started when the child is less than 1 year old. Dr. Rubin also treats adults with port-wine stains at Children’s National.
• Infantile hemangiomas, especially in their earliest phase, often as a rapidly expanding red dot or papule. This can be as early as the baby’s first month. Laser treatment is best suited for superficial lesions.
• Involuted hemangiomas and other vascular lesions with residual color and textural change.
• Scars from surgery, burns, trauma, or other causes. Laser treatment can be effective for both new scars and mature scars
