Medical Dermatology

Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin, nails, hair and its diseases. We’re specialists in both medical and surgical aspects. We treat diseases in the widest sense, and some cosmetic problems of the skin, scalp, hair and nails.

We Treat Patients of All Ages and Skin Types

Dermatologists are trained to treat patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. This includes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of problems of the skin, hair and nails. Conditions common among children are moles and birthmarks, dermatitis, acne, and warts.  In adults we treat a range of conditions such as cancers and pre-cancers, rosacea, psoriasis and shingles. We also treat eczema, skin allergies and other skin disorders that occur in all age groups, and carefully examine moles or other growths to determine whether they are or may become cancerous.

Acne is the term for plugged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and even deeper lumps (cysts or nodules) that occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and even the upper arms. Acne affects most teenagers to some extent.

Eczema is a general term encompassing various inflamed skin conditions.

Hyperhidrosis is caused by excessive sweating in areas of the body which contain eccrine glands.

Moles (nevi) are naturally occurring groups of cells which are seen on the skin of all people.

A condition in which certain facial blood vessels enlarge, giving the cheeks and nose a flushed appearance.

Cancer develops when DNA, the molecule found in cells that encodes genetic information, becomes damaged and the body cannot repair the damage. These damaged cells begin to grow and divide uncontrollably. When this occurs in the skin, skin cancer develops.

Warts are infections caused by viruses that are present everywhere, making them among the most common of all childhood skin conditions.

XTRAC is the only FDA-cleared, clinically proven excimer laser that gets skin clear of psoriasis—and it works fast, with many patients seeing significant improvement and long-lasting remissions.

XTRAC treatments can minimize and, in many cases, even eliminate Vitligo depigmented patches.
