Skin Cancer Screening and Treatment
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Given the fact that 1 in 5 people will be diagnosed with skin cancer during their lifetime, and there are many different types of skin cancer, it’s imperative that everyone is screened regularly for this disease which can be deadly. Early detection often leads to a higher success rate with treatment. Our dermatologists work with patients on an individual basis in order to provide them with the specific treatment that they need.
Many patients seek the help of a dermatologist when it comes to treating acne and acne scars. Acne is a common skin condition that impacts people of all ages. By working with a qualified dermatologist, a patient can receive effective treatment that can minimize acne breakouts, prevent scarring and improve their self-confidence. We provide customized treatment plans for our patients who are suffering from frequent bouts of acne.
Permanent scarring can be frustrating for an individual, especially if the scar is large or if it is located in a prominent place. We provide a variety of scar revision treatments designed to minimize or eliminate scars. Topical treatments, injectable treatments and surface treatments are available, depending on the size, color and location of the scar.
Normal moles are quite common, and the average adult has several moles on their body. However, when a mole begins to develop an abnormal shape or change over time, it may be necessary to remove it. Our team can successfully remove your mole and provide you with additional treatment if necessary.
Our patients benefit from the fact that we have a board certified plastic surgeon in our office who can work with the dermatologist to provide the best results possible. In many cases, a patient who needs a lesion removed may also need a cosmetic procedure to achieve the look that they desire after treatment. At our practice, you will be treated by both a dermatologist and plastic surgeon who work together in a cooperative manner, ultimately providing you with the best possible care.
