A dermatologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats disorders of the skin, hair and nails. There are several areas of specialization in dermatology, including surgery, skin cancer, treatments for children and cosmetic issues. There are many reasons to seek the help of our skilled dermatologist and his team at Orlando Dermatology.
A bad hair day that continues for weeks may be more than a styling problem. Chronic hair loss can be treated at our office in Orlando. Even the process of going bald, which is usually genetic, can be slowed with certain treatments.
Acne is a common condition in adults as well as teenagers. Over-the-counter remedies may help in the short-term, but advanced treatments can be prescribed by our dermatologist that target your specific kind of acne and help minimize any scarring.
Skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, nail fungus and warts can all be treated. Our dermatologist has been trained to treat these diseases, and when you start treatment early, you have a better chance of curing or reducing the inflammation. Eczema is a term that relates to several chronic skin conditions. They cause inflammation and swelling of the skin. It may itch and look unattractive. The most common type is atopic dermatitis that is usually found on children. It may leak fluid and cause children to have trouble sleeping.
Cosmetic concerns are one of the top reasons people visit our office. A few of the cosmetic treatments available are body contouring, injections, laser and radiofrequency skin treatments, laser hair removal and micro-needling. These treatments may be useful for fat reduction, the removal of age spots, treating dry skin and wrinkles and improvement of your skin’s color and texture.
Skin analysis that is done by a dermatologist gives you a customized and unique picture of your skin type. This will help you choose the right skin care products, makeup and sun protection.
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer and is the easiest type to cure if it is diagnosed early. Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer and must be treated early. If you find skin growths that change in size, color, shape or thickness, it may be a warning sign that needs to be checked by our dermatologist.
Skin is the largest organ in your body, and disorders of the skin may mean you have other health problems that are not obvious. This is why it is so important to see our dermatologist at Orlando Dermatology if you have anything going on that is out of the ordinary.
