Jayne Fortson MD

Board Certified in Dermatology & Dermatopathology
Advanced Training in Medical/Surgical Dermatology & Cosmetic Skin Treatment

Jayne Fortson, MD, is the state’s leading specialist in the treatment and care of Alaskan skin. As Anchorage’s only physician board-certified in both dermatology and dermatopathology, she is also Alaska’s most highly-trained cosmetic skin expert. Dr. Fortson is experienced in a complete range of medical and surgical dermatology services, treatment of psoriasis and other weather-influenced skin disorders, and advanced cosmetic skin procedures.

Graduating from Northwestern University Medical School where she was the featured graduation speaker, she was subsequently awarded a National Institute of Health grant in dermatological research. She completed one year of dermatology research at the University of Utah. Her dermatology residency was completed at Wright State University and her dermatopathology fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. She regularly participates in specialized training for new advances in skin disorders and treatment, and in the newest cosmetic skin procedures. She is a member of approved physician networks for numerous cosmetic skin services.

Providing the most up-to-date and accurate information about advanced skin therapy solutions and safe, customized treatments are the foundation of services provided by the Fortson Center. Dr. Fortson continually researches new technologies, procedures and products for skin, and provides Alaskans with the most effective and advanced dermatological treatment and cosmetic services available in the United States.

Today’s therapies for skin, especially laser and many types of cosmetic treatments, require precise, careful attention from a highly-trained skin expert experienced in use of lasers and other advanced technologies. Dr. Fortson performs or oversees all dermatology and cosmetic treatments at Fortson Skincare. This is unlike many other centers where individuals with little training or experience provide the services.

At the Fortson Center, you’ll receive only the treatment that is right for you. Dr. Fortson will assess your skin to ensure the therapy is appropriate and safe for your skin type, and will make recommendations to increase the effectiveness of treatment. This in-depth level of attention and expertise is available only from a board-certified dermatologist with advanced training and extensive experience in cosmetic procedures.

Another exceptional advantage of the Fortson Center is the extensive array of treatments and skincare technologies available onsite. For example, there are numerous alternatives for anti-aging treatment. What does that mean? You receive the therapy that is most effective for your skin, dramatically increasing the results. By comparison, centers offering only one or two anti-aging options are unable to match treatment with your skin or the issue to be solved: you receive only the treatment that is available. At Fortson Skincare, we are committed to you --- the health and beauty of your skin is our top priority. We also think it’s important to let you know when a popular treatment is not right for you -- in fact, we won’t provide it. You can count on us to be frank with our recommendations and provide only the treatments that will be safe and most effective for your skin.

Your skin is important. Choose a medical professional specializing in the treatment of skin, possesses advanced training in cosmetic and dermatology procedures, and uses the most advanced therapies, techniques and equipment. You’ll find it all at the Fortson Center.

Tips for Safe & Healthy Hands

Hand washing is critical to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. However, a side effect of frequent handwashing is dry skin that can itch, flake and crack, causing wounds that can allow the entry of bacteria and other germs. Moisturizing your hands after washing is very important step.

  • Wash your hands using lukewarm water for at least 20 seconds. Make sure to thoroughly soap between your fingers and around your nails.
  • Moisturize immediately after washing -- using lotion while your hands are slightly damp will help lock in the moisture.
  • When soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer. The CDC recommends a sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to kill germs. Since these can be drying, it is especially important to use a moisturizer afterward. With sanitizer; however, be sure that your hands are completely dry before applying the moisturizer.
  • Using a moisturizer after washing or sanitizing your hands does not negate the effects.
