Get to know Dr. David Myers
I was raised in Utah County and graduated from Brigham Young University. My training includes medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin, followed by an internship at Waukesha Family Medicine. My dermatology residency was completed at the Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I was the chief resident during my last year. Currently, I am the dermatology lecturer and attending physician for the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center Family Medicine program.
I also offer dermatology services for students at Brigham Young University at the BYU Health Center. I am a fellow of the American Society for Mohs Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. My interests include all aspects of medical, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology. I received additional training in skin cancer treatment during my residency in Madison, the birthplace of Mohs surgery.
I am committed to providing compassionate, competent care. I encourage my patients to be knowledgeable and understand the management of their skin conditions.
Come see us and meet our amazing team waiting to take great care of you!

TOP DERMATOLOGIC PROCEDURES
Skin Cancer: The abnormal growth of skin cells — most often develops on skin exposed to the sun. But this common form of cancer can also occur on areas of your skin not ordinarily exposed to sunlight. There are three major types of skin cancer — basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.
Surgical MOHS Treatments: Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. During Mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. Mohs surgery is also known as Mohs micrographic surgery.
Eczema/Dermatitis: Atopic Dermatitis (the most common form of eczema) is a skin condition that is caused by barrier defects in the outer layer of the skin. Healthy skin contains natural substances such as ceramides and lipids that help keep in moisture. In eczema patients, these natural substances are missing or are found in lower quantities. The immune response to these allergens are the symptoms commonly associated with eczema, including patches of dry and red skin that can be extremely itchy and that worsen when scratched.
Treatment of Acne: we take acne treatment very seriously. As mentioned above, there are many different causes of acne, and therefore there are many different treatments available. After we have determined the cause of your acne, we will use the appropriate treatment options available that will help clear your skin.
TOP COSMETIC PROCEDURES
Dermal Fillers: Dermal Fillers are used to restore a more natural appearance by re-volumizing facial tissue to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. The role of dermal fillers in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. Dr. Myers a master injector will analyze and assess what treatments will be best for your overall needs.
Botox: BOTOX injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles by preventing muscle contractions. Dr. Myers injects BOTOX directly into the muscles causing the wrinkles. The results are apparent almost immediately, and there is little to no downtime in recovery after BOTOX.
Treating Acne Scars: Acne scars are caused from part of the healing process of acne inflammation under the skin (fibrous strands replace collagen that was damaged during the intense inflammation associated with severe acne). Treatment of acne scars can be performed by multiple or combination of different modalities. Treatments range from Laser resurfacing procedures to Subcisions, or Bellafill (a semi-permanent dermal filler FDA approved for treatment on acne scars) etc.
Aesthetic Services: Dr. Myers and Aesthetic Coordinators work together to create a recipe designed to help patient achieve and address their aesthetic concerns. Treatments range from facial treatments of Microdermabrasions, Microneedling, or Chemical Peels. Or even skin tightening procedures using Ultherapy. Providers and Master Aestheticians combine their expertise to provide the optimal skincare regimen that best fits your needs.
