Dermatologists are uniquely trained to evaluate the skin, hair and nails. They can spot potential problems and diagnose a host of conditions that range from minor to life threatening. These skills and knowledge can improve the lives of patients of all ages–the infant with a birthmark, the child with a rash, the teen with acne, the baby boomer with sun-damaged skin, the senior citizen with psoriasis–effectively treating their skin conditions and helping them look and feel their best. Our physicians diagnose a wide range of conditions such as skin cancer, acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, warts, rashes, moles and hair loss. We offer full body skin exams for skin cancer screening and diagnose and treat many other skin conditions.
Some of our Medical Treatments:
Acne treatment can be very confusing, as different skin types and situations can require different treatments. Our doctors can help prescribe the proper medical treatment for your unique acne situation.
Moles and mole removal can vary in seriousness. Mole removal can be for cosmetic reasons, although most mole removal is because of new, concerning moles that could be attributed to melanoma.
Skin cancer can come in many forms, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Early detection by dermatologists can help identify and treat the problem before it becomes too serious.
Psoriasis is a skin disorder that causes skin cells to multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. This makes the skin build up into bumpy red patches covered with white scales. They can grow anywhere, but most appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back.
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition characterized by dry itchy areas of skin. It can occur on any areas of the body but the most common areas include:
- creases of the elbows
Acne Rosacea is a common, chronic but treatable condition that typically affects the central third of the face.
Warts are a viral infection of the skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). They can appear anywhere on the skin but are more common in areas of minor breaks or open skin.
