Many residents of Mission Viejo, Huntington Beach, Tustin, Los Alamitos, and Long Beach are dealing with stubborn skin conditions like wrinkles, scars, and dry skin that do not respond very well to home treatment. For problems like these, our skilled Orange County dermatologist can usually get your skin back to an acceptable condition and restore much of its youthful radiance. A wide range of treatments are available to suit virtually every skin need. Many of the procedures do not even require surgery, so you will be back at work or taking part in your normal daily activities right away.
Skin Cancer Screening
Skin cancer is the most frequently diagnosed form of cancer in the United States. An estimated 20 percent of Americans will have the disease within their lifetime. The good news is that skin cancer is highly treatable when detected early before it has a chance to spread to internal organs.
When you undergo a skin cancer screening with our Orange County dermatologist, we are visually inspecting your skin. If you should detect a change in the appearance of an existing mole, this is the time to schedule an appointment with us to undergo a screening for skin cancer. Ignoring the problem or putting off an appointment only makes treatment that much more difficult if a problem should arise.
If you are looking for a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves little to no downtime, a micro-needling treatment may be right for you. Micro-needling is effective for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, light scars, and skin blemishes.
Many of our patients choose to combine their micro-needling treatments with the application of topical ointments, creams, and serums because the treatment process forms punctures that allow for far greater skin penetration of these ingredients.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Medical lasers are able to precisely target the source of your skin problem, removing only unwanted skin tissue and leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. The treatment works by sending targeted thermal energy into the area beneath the skin surface. Your body replaces this tissue with new tissue that displays minimized lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and scars.
Sometimes called the “liquid facelift”, dermal fillers offer a great alternative to cosmetic surgery when it comes to increasing facial fullness and minimizing wrinkles. They utilize natural substances to replace those that have been lost due to the aging process.
This just scratches the surface when it comes to the treatments we offer at Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery, with offices in Mission Viejo, Huntington Beach, Tustin, Los Alamitos, and Long Beach. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our Orange County dermatologist!
