Acne is the term used to describe blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or any clogged pores that occur on the face or body. Most acne problems occur during the adolescent years, but it can sometimes occur before or even after the teenage years.

Acne can often play a detrimental effect in one's self-esteem because it ruins the natural beauty of a person's facial features. Normally, minor acne will come and go on its own, recurring more frequently between the ages of adolescence and becoming less thereafter. Occasionally, acne can continually cause problems for a person later in life. More severe cases of acne can lead to more serious, permanent scarring.

There are a number of techniques available today to treat acne. Doctors can recommend habitual changes in a person's lifestyle to help reduce the reoccurrence of breakouts. Medications are also often used to lessen the severity of outbreaks. Advanced laser therapies and chemical peels are also available to treat acne.


Eczema is sometimes called dermatitis. It is actually a group of skin conditions that can affect you at any age. It is not contagious but can be uncomfortable because it makes the skin hot and itchy. In severe cases, it can even cause bleeding. There are several types of eczema and each type requires different treatment methods. Eczema can occur because of irritation, allergic reaction or hereditary conditions. The most common variety is atopic eczema, which can be treated with steroids to reduce inflammation and creams to relieve the itchiness and dryness. In some cases, light treatments and dietary changes have been shown to help. While there is no cure for eczema, many people grow out of it. In addition, using the proper medications and staying clear of substances that cause eczema to flare up can greatly reduce your discomfort and can lessen the severity of the condition. Only your doctor can correctly diagnose and analyze your condition. It is important to consult with your physician to make sure that you receive the most effective and efficient treatment possible.


We offer many different mole removal services. We can excise, or cut, your mole off without the need for stitches. If your mole is non-cancerous, there is no need to remove it other than aesthetic purposes. If your mole has un-even edges or you notice it is growing larger in diameter or getting darker in color, please come in to have it biopsied. We will determine if it is cancerous and needs to be removed.


Psoriasis is a chronic disorder that creates itchy, red marks on the body. These areas form multi-layered "scales" that vary in severity. Psoriasis can occur at any age in both males and females. It is not contagious, though there does seem to be a hereditary connection. It is not a life-threatening condition, and in most cases, people who have mild symptoms may not even know that they have psoriasis. Cuts, scratches, infections and dry skin seem to cause flare-ups. In addition, lack of sun exposure and certain medications may cause psoriasis to flare up. Often, psoriasis affects the same area repeatedly. Elbows, arms, knees and legs are commonly afflicted areas. Generally, your doctor can diagnose you merely by examining your skin, but he or she may also perform a biopsy if needed. Steroids, oils, sprays, medications, vitamins, light therapy and many other treatments are available. Based on the severity of your condition, your doctor will consult with you to find the treatment that's best for you. It is important to treat this condition, both to alleviate pain and to help significantly improve your quality of life.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that affects the cheeks and nose, but can include the chin and forehead as well. Rosacea is also called adult acne but is not usually associated with black heads as in teenage acne. Rosacea is most commonly seen in adults 30-35 years old, generally in those with lighter skin. Rosacea can also cause eye irritation where the lashes are sparse, the eyes are itchy, red and watery and vision is disrupted due to this irritation.

How can I control my Rosacea?

Avoiding triggers that include the things that can make your rosacea flare up such as spicy foods, alcohol consumption, exercise, exposure to windy, dry or sunny climates for long periods of time, and stress.

Controlling Rosacea

  • Topical antibiotics-such as Clindamycin or Metronidazole
  • Azeleic Acid, Sodium Sulfacetomide, Mirvaso
  • Sodium Sulfacetamide
  • Oral antibiotics - such as Doxycycline and Minocycline
  • IPL or photo-facial treatments

Skin Cancers

Melanoma is cancer of the cells in the skin that produce melanin, the pigment in your skin. This is considered the most severe type of skin cancer, but as long as it hasn't spread, to areas such as the eyes or internal organs, it can be removed with surgery. If the melanoma is small and thin, all of it may be excised, or cut out, during the biopsy. Otherwise, our doctors will surgically remove the cancer and a border of surrounding skin as well as a layer of tissue under the skin – just to ensure all of the cancer is gone. This same excision technique applies to non-melanoma skin cancers, such as basal cell or squamous cell skin cancers, as well. These cancers arise from excessive sun exposure. Once detected, they can be surgically removed.

Warts (also called verrucae) are caused by human papilloma virus infection of the skin. Warts can affect any part of the skin and mucous membranes. In office treatment can include freezing warts, applying different destructive solutions, or injecting warts with an immune-stimulating preparation. Prescriptions for home treatment include chemicals to boost the immune system to fight off the wart virus, or topical chemotherapies. Warts usually need multiple treatment visits for resolution.
