If you live in Mission Viejo, Long Beach, Huntington Beach, Tustin, Los Alamitos, or the surrounding area, you might want to consider scheduling an appointment with our Orange County dermatologist, especially if you are unsatisfied or concerned about the appearance or health of your skin. As the largest organ of your body, your skin is often a reliable indicator of both your health and youth. Enhancing the health of your skin can make you appear younger and help you stave off diseases like skin cancer.
You should have at least an initial skin cancer screening at your first dermatologist appointment to rule out this serious, life-threatening disease. Early detection is very important since skin cancer is highly curable before it has a chance to spread to your internal organs. Any change in the size, shape, or color of an existing mole is an item of concern and should prompt an appointment with our Orange County dermatologist to have it examined. Most moles are harmless, but it is better to not take any chances. Moles can also be removed for purely cosmetic purposes.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you would prefer a non-surgical treatment for skin problems like wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and poor skin tone, a simple laser skin resurfacing procedure can probably help. This treatment involves directing targeted laser energy into your skin to force the breakup of unwanted skin. This skin will then be replaced with more youthful skin that displays fewer skin imperfections.
You might benefit from a chemical peel if you have long-standing skin complaints like lines, wrinkles, or scars caused by injury, surgery, or acne. Chemical peels work by removing various portions of your outer skin to promote the development of new, fresh skin that replaces the old skin that was affected by the procedure.
A superficial or light peel may be right for you if your skin imperfections are minor. This peel removes only the outer skin layer or epidermis. Light peels represent the gentlest form of chemical peel. If you want to bring out the heavy artillery, a deeper peel with our Orange County dermatologist may benefit you.
