When you think about visiting a dermatologist, you likely think about having an evaluation and treatment done for some type of skin condition. Rightly so, for that is the field in which dermatologists specialize. When you break down the different skin conditions into categories, there are a number of specific reasons you might want to see our dermatologist and her team at Steele Creek Dermatology. We even offer a variety of cosmetic treatments that can be done to improve appearance.
Acne is one of the biggest reasons people seek help from dermatologists. Even though there are a number of over-the-counter remedies on the market, they are frequently not sufficient to adequately take care of the problem. When you add to the equation the fact that severe acne can lead to permanent scarring, you should not attempt to remedy the problem yourself for very long. Our dermatologist can prescribe things that you simply cannot get on your own. Seeing our specialist sooner rather than later for acne problems may prevent a lot of long-term consequences.
The key to the successful treatment of skin cancer is to catch it and begin treatments early. If you have a place on your skin that you think might be malignant, you should not fool around with it. By seeing our dermatologist right away, your chances of complete recovery are dramatically improved. Any changes to moles should especially be evaluated by a dermatologist.
Warts and Rashes
Although warts and rashes are less of a health concern than skin cancer, they are still common issues that many people seek treatment for at our office. We offer a variety of treatments that can remove warts and minimize the appearance of rashes. Of course, since rashes are often caused by an underlying condition, we can also come up with a treatment plan for addressing that condition while improving aesthetic appearance.
Although our dermatologist can diagnose and treat a variety of health concerns, we also offer many cosmetic treatments at our office. People dealing with unwanted wrinkles may wish to take advantage of BOTOX® or filler treatments, whereas someone dealing with sun-damaged skin or dark spots may benefit from chemical peels.
