Skin Treatment Options
AKRON – MAYFIELD HEIGHTS – MENTOR
There are a wide range of skin conditions that vary in severity and exhibit different symptoms. Some cause minor irritation while others pose a much more serious issue. There are many reasons to visit a dermatologist and here are six skin treatments that can make a world of difference to your appearance, health and general well being. We have outstanding professionals who can supply the assistance you need to find the skin treatment option that works best for your body and health. Office locations include Akron, Mayfield Heights and Mentor, Ohio.
Persistent acne that doesn’t respond to over-the-counter remedies can often be resolved by a regimen of treatment options diagnosed by the dermatologist. Some skin conditions might present as looking like acne but are actually a different condition, which could be one reason why early attempts to clear it do not work. A dermatologist can help prevent scarring from severe acne, supply solutions for persistent acne that resisted earlier treatment efforts and diagnose and treat skin conditions that resemble acne but require different methods of care.
Psoriasis can exhibit as rough, scaly patches on your body and is caused by an autoimmune disorder. The immune system is misfiring, causing skin cells to grow too quickly and thereby causing red, thick scales, which might be itchy and uncomfortable. Our dermatology team can recommend skin treatment options after evaluating your individual situation. Both psoriasis and vitiglio both respond well to light and laser therapies, used alone or in combination with topical medications, oral drugs and/or lifestyle adjustments.
Rosacea can cause skin to look permanently red and flushed. This is a common skin condition that can flare up for time periods ranging from weeks to months and then disappear, only to flare up again. There are different types and manifestations of rosacea and this is one common skin condition that can mimic acne, although it will not respond to the same skin treatments that can mitigate acne. Proper treatment and a course of care recommended by our dermatologists can help control and reduce symptoms and appearance of rosacea.
As we get older skin cancer is more likely to develop, although it can manifest itself at any age. Early detection of this most common of cancer types means that the vast majority of all cases are curable if properly and promptly diagnosed and treated. If you see anything new, changing or unusual on your skin, make the time to get it checked by one of our board-certified professionals. It pays to visit a dermatologist and have a full-body skin exam once a year if you are at a higher risk for skin cancer. We offer a variety of treatment options to remove and treat skin cancer lesions and tumors, including Mohs surgery.
Wrinkles and Sagging
Each time we squint, frown or pucker and facial muscles contract, overlying skin is pulled into lines and folds. Over time this can result in dynamic wrinkles (as opposed to static wrinkles caused by sagging skin).
Both our board-certified dermatologists and certified nurse practitioners have advanced training in administering FDA-approve neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. These neurotoxins help refresh and rejuvenate your skin to smooth wrinkles for a refreshed, natural-looking appearance. The neurotoxins are actually purified proteins, injected into precise points that help muscles relax and wrinkles soften.
