Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body? Skin is also a reliable indicator of your overall health, as well as your age. That is why it is so important to take good care of it and treat any problem areas before they grow more serious. If you have common skin problems like scars, wrinkles, blemishes or unusual moles, you owe it to yourself to schedule an appointment with a qualified dermatologist to safeguard your health and appearance.
Skin Cancer Screening
Almost everyone has some type of blemish or skin imperfection. While these are normally just aesthetic concerns, some of them may develop into more serious problems like skin cancer. Skin cancer is usually highly treatable when detected early. This is why you should have yourself screened for skin cancer periodically, particularly if you detect any unusual changes in a mole. Moles that change shape, have irregular borders or itch can indicate the development of skin cancer, so it’s important to bring these to the attention of our dermatologist as soon as possible.
Cosmetic Dermatology Services
Contrary to popular belief, a dermatologist doesn’t just treat medical conditions. We also offer a number of cosmetic treatments. If you are getting older, you may have noticed unpleasant skin changes. These common skin complaints have seen numerous cosmetic treatment innovations recently that do not require surgery or lengthy downtimes. In fact, minimally-invasive treatments are one of the fastest growing aspects of dermatology.
Some of the most popular treatments offered at our office include:
- Dermal Fillers – These are simply injectable substances delivered into the skin to increase hydration and fullness. Since they help plump the skin, they can make you appear more youthful and fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
- Chemical Peels – Medical-grade chemical peels are another common treatment performed at our office. There are different types of peels available, depending on the severity and extent of your skin condition. Peels are quite good at minimizing the appearance of scars, wrinkles, age spots and other unwanted skin conditions.
- Laser Treatments – Professional laser treatments utilize laser energy in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, leading to overall skin rejuvenation. We are proud to offer this treatment utilizing the CO2 fractional laser.
