At Plastic Surgery Vegas, Dr. Tam is a concierge dermatologist with a special focus in advanced resurfacing procedures, including lasers and peels. With the help of laser technology, Dr. Tam works to reduce dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration without ever making an incision, changing the way many men and women care for their skin.

Dr. Tam is board certified in both dermatology and family medicine. After her residency in family medicine, she chose to complete an additional 3-year residency in dermatology and dermatological surgery. During this time, she trained in clinical dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, hair transplant procedures, lasers, dermatological surgery, and Mohs micrographic surgery.
As chief resident, she presided as the primary surgeon in hundreds of Mohs micrographic surgeries — highly specialized procedures for the optimal treatment of skin cancer. The American Society of Mohs Surgery allowed her the honor of taking their board exams prior to graduating, and she became a fellow of the board immediately after graduation.

"GREAT service!! I’ve gone twice to see Dr. Tam for skin issues. Once for my face as I spend a lot of time out in the elements with my job. Another visit for a dry itchy scalp. She quickly knew what it was and explained everything to me and what we could do remedy it. SUPER COOL DOC!! 5+"

"Dr. Alison Tam and her assistant, Gail, helped me remove a horrible spot on my skin. I didn't know where to turn and was apprehensive about its removal. They were so kind and gentle. The removal was a great success and painless. The follow up calls really made me feel they care about their patients. I highly recommend this office."
"Dr. Tam has completely cured my hormonal acne within 2 months of seeing her without any additional scarring. Her assistant, Gail, has been so accommodating with all of my prescriptions including this miracle cream for past scars that has changed my life forever! I’ve also seen her for my submental fat beneath my chin... and have had my double chin treated with kybella! Absolutely love my results! Would never see another dermatologist! I recommend Dr. Tam to all of my friends, family, and everyone!"
