Your skin is your body’s largest organ and plays a very important protective role. While your skin can be great for keeping disease away from vital organs and tissues, it too can be susceptible to certain diseases and conditions thanks to genetics, sun exposure, viruses, and other factors.
While skin conditions may come with symptoms, they can also affect your appearance as well as your self-esteem. If you notice an unusual feature on your skin or a sudden change in the way it looks or feels, you should bring it up to Dr. Breadon and the team at Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery to get an official diagnosis.
Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery offers a wide range of medical and cosmetic dermatological treatment options to address some of the most common skin conditions and their symptoms. Dr. Breadon and the team specialize in managing or treating:
If you get patches of irritable, often very itchy skin, it might be eczema. While eczema often first appears in childhood, you might get flare-ups intermittently throughout your life.
Acne is a very common skin condition in teenagers because it’s often associated with major hormone fluctuations. You can get it at any point in your life, and some flare-ups are very hard to manage.
Moles and cysts are two different types of skin growths that are normally benign. Dr. Breadon can remove either type for you. A new or changing mole could indicate skin cancer, so you should come in for a diagnosis if you notice one.
Psoriasis is a lifelong autoimmune condition that causes red and scaly patches to appear across various areas of the body. The symptoms can come for some time before going away for long periods of remission.
Rosacea, which causes skin redness and broken blood vessels on the face, often goes hand-in-hand with acne or pus-filled bumps that mimic acne. It can affect anyone.
Warts are fleshy bumps that often develop on the hands or feet. They come from a viral infection.
Sometimes, dark spots on the skin indicate a skin condition called melasma. It’s much more common in women than men and usually affects the face.
Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes loss of pigment in your skin. The condition makes your melanocytes stop producing melanin. With treatment, you can restore your skin tone in some of the patches.
There are many types of hair loss, the most common of which are genetic. Dr. Breadon can tell you if your form is treatable and guide you to a treatment that might restore growth.
There are many treatments that can address the incredibly wide range of skin conditions. Dr. Breadon and the team work with you to create an individualized treatment plan for the condition or symptoms affecting you, which might include:
You check-in at Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery with follow-up visits after your initial treatment for a skin condition. Dr. Breadon can make changes to your plan if you’re not seeing great results.
