Do you think of visiting the dermatologist as an extra step that’s not exactly necessary when it comes to your health? If so, you may be in for a rude awakening. You may actually be surprised at how much a qualified dermatologist can help you and how your skin will benefit from expert care. Seeing a dermatologist can offer so many advantages that you may not have previously considered.
One of the main reasons why most people head to the dermatologist is because of acne. Pimples and blackheads can leave scars at times and cause worry and embarrassment for teenagers and adults who deal with them. Our dermatologist can prescribe oral or topical medications for treating acne and can provide treatments in the office for minimizing breakouts.
Acne can often lead to scarring. Other scars can be left behind from injuries, surgeries, stretch marks and more. Our dermatologist can use various professional treatments to decrease and eliminate many scars.
Everyone’s skin ages from the moment of birth. By middle-age, lines, wrinkles, sags, bags, enlarged pores and poor texture often plague both men and women. Our dermatologist has an arsenal of creams, serums, injectables and other treatments that can restore youthfulness to your skin.
Skin Care Advice
Are you having trouble knowing how to care for your skin? Has your skin tone or texture recently changed in the past years? Do you struggle with oily or dry skin? Our dermatologist is a great person to talk to about these concerns and can point you in the right direction when it comes to products and treatments.
Just consider what an important role dermatologists have in catching skin cancer and treating it effectively. While many skin cancers begin as small lesions that can easily be removed, some grow quickly and can spread within your body, leading to malignant lesions and even terminal illness in some cases. At an annual dermatology examination, our practitioner will check your body for concerning moles and lesions that could spell trouble and can offer treatments, if necessary.
Rather than looking at regular dermatological care as something you simply do not have time for, mark your annual examination on your calendar right now by scheduling an appointment with us at Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery. We have offices located in Tustin, Mission Viejo, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, and Huntington Beach. Contact us today to book an appointment with our dermatologist.
