Why You Might Visit a Dermatologist

There are several reasons you might visit your dermatologist, including if you have acne, eczema, psoriasis, a rash, or you are dealing with aging and want to look younger. Our dermatologist can help you heal from a skin condition, or help enhance the beauty of your skin.

What to Expect When You Visit Our Dermatologist

When you visit our dermatologist, they will thoroughly examine your skin, take a thorough medical history, record any medications you are taking, and may order laboratory testing to determine if an underlying illness is causing your skin condition. Then, our dermatologist will develop a customized treatment plan to help you get relief.

Common Skin Conditions and Their Treatments

These are just a few of the most common skin conditions and how they are treated:

  • For acne and acne scarring, our dermatologist may recommend benzoyl-peroxide or tretinoin products, antibiotics, or laser therapy. To diminish acne scars, our providers may recommend chemical peels and other skin resurfacing treatments.
  • For atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, our dermatologist may recommend laser therapy to fade eczema patches, and topical treatments to reduce itching and inflammation.
  • For aging skin, our dermatologist can recommend treatments and services like Botox, dermal fillers, skin resurfacing, and other aesthetic services to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and other aging skin issues.

Dermatology & Prevention

One of the most important services our dermatologist provides is the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, and it is most often caused by sun exposure. Regular visits to our dermatologist for a skin examination can help identify skin cancer in its early stages, so it can be better treated.
