One of the key components affecting our quality of life is our health. We have from 12 to 20 square feet of skin on our bodies, with three layers. In its entirety, our skin comprises approximately 15 percent of our body. This means that skin wellness is an extremely important factor in our well-being as we go through life.
Our skin can be affected by many things. In addition to the elements and the process of aging, skin can be affected by thousands of diseases. Each condition that can affect the skin, however, can be addressed through the variety of treatment options available with your dermatologist. If the skin is not well, it is important to work with a trusted, board certified dermatologist with whom you are comfortable. With a great deal of compassion and expertise, our team of practitioners uses an accurate analysis of skin to design a treatment plan that works for you.
We understand the distress that can come from everyday skin conditions, especially when they are persistent. In the area of medical dermatology, we help our patients with acne, eczema, nail fungus, rashes, rosacea, hair loss, and more, developing personalized treatment plans based on patient needs. Our commitment spans all areas of dermatology, and the conditions that may affect the skin, including conditions like hives, shingles, or herpes. We provide information that will help our patients better understand their condition, and devise a plan to relieve symptoms and restore health to the skin.
Some of the conditions treated within medical dermatology include:
- Basal cell carcinoma
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Genetic skin disorders
- Hair loss and disorders of the scalp
- Skin infections
- Nail disorders
We live in an area that receives plentiful sunshine. The team at U.S. Dermatology Partners, formerly Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, knows that our patients benefit from proper education regarding sun protection. We understand that many people are seeking solutions to damage caused by the sun, and the premature aging that results from overexposure. Our expertise in the area of skin care is used to help you discover your best skin, and maintain it with adequate sun protection.
