DERMATOLOGY

Whether you wish to enhance your beauty, physical comfort, or the health of your skin, there is a dermatological treatment that is right for you. Treatments will often vary depending on the extent of the condition, your preferences, and the discernment of our trusted staff with what will work best on your unique skin.

WHAT ARE YOUR CONCERNS?

Acne

There are many different treatments for acne depending on the type and severity. Topical retinoids, topical antibiotics, and benzoyl peroxide can treat comedonal, hormonal, and inflammatory acne, while Accutane® (isotretinoin) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) effectively treat severe cystic acne.

Uneven Pigmentation

Uneven skin pigmentation can be treated with a 30 to 40-minute chemical peel. The type of chemical peel will depend on the extent of correction needed.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles can be diminished with topical retinoids, chemical peel, dermal fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic, skin resurfacing, or Ultherapy® skin tightening.

Sun Spots

Sun spots and other sun-damaged skin can be treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT), which involves the use of a topical chemical called Levulan combined with light. Sun spots may also be treated with cryotherapy or intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment.

Eczema

Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by itchy, inflamed skin that can often blister, ooze, or scale. Treatments include emollients, topical steroids, antihistamines, prednisone, and immunomodulation treatments.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that appears on the skin as thick, silvery, itchy patches. Treatment options include topical steroids, vitamin D topical creams, combination topical treatments, oral immunomodulation treatments, biologic treatments, oral or topical retinoids, or phototherapy.

Rashes

Many different types of rashes can be diagnosed visually or with a biopsy in which the area of skin is numbed, removed, and sent for processing to determine the best treatment plan.

Cysts

The two most common types of cysts, epidermoid cysts and pilar cysts (commonly seen on the scalp), can be removed by surgical excision. Draining the cyst may be necessary if the cyst is inflamed.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are small growths that appear most often beneath the arms, in the groin area, and around the neck. Treatment options include snip excision, shave removal, or cryotherapy.

Skin Lesions

A skin lesion is an area of the skin that looks different in appearance than the surrounding skin. A biopsy may be required for diagnosis, which will determine the steps of treatment.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by facial redness, prominent facial blood vessels (telangiectasias), red bumps, and pustules. It can be treated with oral antibiotics, topical medications, pulsed dye laser (PDL), or CO₂ fractional laser.

Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus is a chronic infection of the toenails. Symptoms include yellowing or whitening of the nail bed, nail thickening, brittleness, and nail splitting. A combination of treatments is often used, which include oral antifungals, topical antifungals, and laser treatments.

Warts

Warts are benign growths that can occur on any part of the body and can spread with skin-to-skin contact. Treatment options include cryotherapy, cantharidin, shave removal, curettage, pulsed dye laser (PDL), and electrodesiccation.

Skin Cancer

There are three primary forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. A skin check or biopsy will be performed to determine the type of cancer or pre-cancer and the best approach to treatment. Treatment options include cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen), topical medications, photodynamic therapy (PDT), CO₂ laser, excision, electrodesiccation and curettage, Mohs Micrographic Surgery, 5-Fluorouracil, and imiquimod.
