Dermatology Services Q&A

How can dermatology services help control and treat acne?

Acne is a very common inflammatory condition that creates blemishes on your skin. While acne is most common among teens and young adults, it can also develop in later adulthood. 

Many people experience occasional breakouts, but for some, acne creates large, painful lesions that make it hard to feel confident about the appearance of your skin. Fortunately, there are treatments that can reduce the frequency and severity of breakouts. 

Medications are one approach and a good fit for people with severe acne. Drug therapy can help open your pores, regulate hormone production, and reduce inflammation or bacterial growth within clogged pores. 

Your practitioner can also advise you on steps you can take at home to soothe your skin and reduce the risk of future breakouts.  

What kinds of needs can be met through dermatology services?

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and can experience a number of different conditions. Some people only encounter a single skin health issue, while others face multiple skin conditions throughout their lives. 

Some of the more common skin conditions include:

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Hives
  • Cellulitis
  • Vitiligo
  • Contact dermatitis

Skin cancer is also common. Some forms of skin cancer are relatively easy to treat and do not pose serious health risks, while others, like melanoma, are more complex and dangerous. 

When is the right time to come in for dermatology services?

Everyone should come in for routine skin checks. Having a medical professional check all areas of your skin for changes ensures that skin cancer is identified in the earliest possible stages when treatment is usually most effective. 

You should also schedule a visit if you develop changes in your skin that create discomfort or make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. There are treatments for virtually every set of needs. Don’t let skin health issues prevent you from living your life to the fullest when treatments are available.
