Annual Skin Exams
Just as you schedule your annual physical or trip to the dentist, it is important to conduct a self-examination of your skin each month and schedule a professional skin examination once a year. Your annual skin examination with your doctor will take about 15 minutes, and you should mention any spots you are concerned about or any changes that you may have noticed.
Botulinum toxin is available in various brands; each is produced from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Each are a purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there's no botulism risk when used properly. When injected in very small amounts, it can be used safely to treat a number of medical and neurological conditions.
A chemical peel is a treatment to improve the appearance of the skin. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing it to blister and peel off. This process removes the superficial layers of the skin, leaving new, typically smoother and less wrinkled skin.
A branch of healthcare science that determines the safety and effectiveness (efficacy) of medications, devices, diagnostic products and treatment regimens intended for human use. These may be used for prevention, treatment, diagnosis, or for relieving symptoms of a disease.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is a treatment that uses light energy to stimulate natural collagen growth and remove irregular pigmentation such as facial redness or rosacea, enlarged blood vessels, facial veins, acne scarring, tattoos, or wrinkles.
People undergoing light therapy sit near or inside a device that mimics natural light. Light therapy is a treatment for people who suffer certain skin disorders, including psoriasis, vitiligo, scleroderma, acne, precancerous skin lesions, and other conditions.
Microdermabrasion is a technique dermatologists use to “sand” the top layers of the skin, with the goal of making it smoother, brighter and healthier looking. Microdermabrasion can even out discoloration of the skin, control acne and soften fine lines and acne scars.
Mohs surgery treats skin cancer. The surgeon removes cells by layer, examining each layer for cancer cells. This preserves more healthy tissue than standard surgery that removes a larger area of tissue all at once. For this reason, Mohs surgery is often used in areas — like the nose and ears — where you need to conserve as much skin as possible. Mohs surgery allows surgeons to verify that all cancer cells have been removed at the time of surgery. This increases the chance of a cure and reduces the need for additional treatment or surgery.
Patch testing helps doctors find the triggers of allergic reactions. During a patch test, a doctor puts small amounts of suspected irritants or allergens on the patient’s skin to determine which ones are causing flares.
Sclerotherapy is a type of chemical injection most commonly used to remove varicose or spider veins. Doctors inject the chemical into the problem vein with the goal of collapsing it until it disappears.
