If you have had even one sunburn, have more than ten moles on one arm or have a family history of skin cancer, we recommend scheduling a full skin check.
At your full skin check, we use hand held dermatoscopes – basically hi tech magnifying glasses with polarized lenses – to examine your skin. Dermatoscopes allow us to see through the top layer of the skin to find signs of early skin cancers.
It’s important to know that there is no true cure for acne. If untreated, it can last for many years, although acne usually clears up as you get older. Each case of acne is different. And everyone’s schedule is different. We do our best to find an effective regimen to combat and control acne that fits as easily as possible into your daily routine.
For some people psoriasis is a nuisance, but for others, it affects every aspect of life. Our office offers many treatments for psoriasis including the XTRAC 308 nm excimer laser. The XTRAC laser generates a targeted beam of UVB light to treat areas of skin affected by psoriasis without harming the surrounding skin. This FDA approved treatment is covered by most insurance companies and Medicare.
We understand that the itching and irritation of atopic dermatitis(AD)/eczema can be so miserable that it interferes with activities of normal daily living. We do our best to help figure out what triggers flares so that these triggers can be minimized and to develop a plan to restore better skin barrier function and skin health.
We check all moles with dermoscopy. Dermatoscopes have magnified, polarized lenses which allow us to see through the top layer of skin. The additional features that we can then see can help us to identify suspicious spots early or to reassure us that a spot is benign. Moles that are itchy, painful, bleeding or growing need to be checked at a spot check ASAP.
