Medical Dermatology

Many people suffer from medical skin conditions in silence, unaware of the available therapies that may help. Due to failed attempts with treatments in the past, it is common for patients to stop seeking the care they deserve. Fortunately, breakthroughs in skin care and treatments continue to be developed, providing options that did not previously exist.

Dermatologists offer a range of medical and cosmetic treatments to address a variety of skin concerns. The field of dermatology deals with diseases affecting not just the skin, but mucous membranes, hair, and nails. Medical dermatology care is beneficial for anybody with persistent skin troubles.

PREVENTATIVE SKIN MEASURES

People who are more susceptible to skin cancer because of frequent sun exposure or an established family history of cancer may want to take steps to monitor their skin and protect their skin as much as possible. Routine skin exams with a dermatologist are of utmost importance to ensure your skin health. Mole mapping is an additional tool that a dermatologist may use to monitor moles. Treatments for precancerous growths are also vital to prevent skin cancer.

Sun protection, including the use of sunscreen and sun-protective clothing, is also advised as a preventative measure to protect against skin cancer. Skin cancer prevention should be at the core of any good skin care routine as well. Even a basic cosmetic skin care routine includes sunscreen as it not only prevents skin aging but also protects against skin cancer.
