How does a Dermatologist treat acne?
There is no shortage of acne treatments available on the market today, so instead of trying one product after another with minimal results, why not get the help of a professional?
When you meet with Dr. Simmons, you receive a treatment that is specially curated for your unique skin. If you’ve failed to find success in treating your acne with over-the-counter options, a dermatologist can dig deeper to find your specific skin solutions.
Treatments may include prescription medications or procedures such as laser therapy, chemical peels, and drainage/extraction methods.
What is Melasma?
Melasma is a common skin condition that is characterized by the presence of brown or bluish-gray patches or freckles on the face, cheeks, upper lip, forehead and forearms.
The cells in your skin that are responsible for your skin color and pigmentation can sometimes be overproduced, resulting in discoloration.
Melasma is not harmful, extremely common, and requires consistent treatment.
Atopic Dermatitis, commonly known as eczema, is a common condition that affects people of any age. It can begin in childhood, first appearing as a red itchy rash.
Eczema can be the result of an overactive immune system, from genetics, or even environmental stresses. The rash is commonly found around the arms and knees and causes itchiness, yellow crust on the skin, swelling, and even cracked skin.
For some, eczema is a lifelong condition, but for others it can be treated using simple solutions to ease the symptoms. Because eczema severity varies between each individual, it is best to meet with a dermatologist to discuss the best treatment plans for your unique case.
There are multiple different forms of alopecia, or hair loss, but these can be divided into two broad categories: non-scarring and scarring alopecia.
In non-scarring alopecia, hair follicles are preserved and may regrow hair if properly treated early on by a professional. In scarring alopecia however, hair follicles are destroyed and cannot regrow.
Our goal is to identify the condition as soon as possible and prevent worsening. It is important to identify which type of alopecia you may have early on, so that the underlying cause may be addressed. It is also important to see someone well versed in various skin conditions such as alopecia, as quickly as possible to begin treatment.
