There are many things that you can do at home to maintain clear, healthy skin. But sometimes your efforts are not enough; you need the services of a professional dermatologist in Orlando. We can help ensure that you receive the proper diagnosis so that you can restore the health and appearance of your skin. There are a number of reasons you should visit a dermatologist in Orlando:
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, but prematurely aging skin is not. If you are unhappy with your appearance because of the presence of lines and wrinkles, you may be eligible for a treatment with facial fillers. Fillers are injectable substances that help to add additional volume to your skin to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
A chemical peel treatment can also address lines and wrinkles. As the name suggests, this treatment involves the application of a chemical solution to peel away a bit of skin tissue, revealing new skin underneath. In addition to treating wrinkles, chemical peels can help correct uneven pigmentation, stretch marks, and scars caused by surgery or trauma.
So your childhood acne has resolved itself, but you still have some unwelcome scars remaining. A treatment called microneedling should be able to help. This treatment involves the application of a topical numbing agent followed by the use of a small device that helps to create numerous micro-channels in your skin. This triggers a self-repair process resulting in the turnover of old skin cells that are replaced by new ones displaying fewer imperfections like acne scars.
Changes in a Mole
Skin cancer is a serious disease that can be fatal if left undetected and untreated. Fortunately, even melanoma is eminently treatable when detected before it has a chance to spread to other organs. You should visit a dermatologist if you have recently detected changes in an existing mole like a change in size, shape, color, or sensation. Changes like these are normally benign, but they may also indicate the early development of skin cancer.
Make a habit of visually scanning your body before entering or exiting your bath or shower. This can help you establish a baseline of what is normal so that you immediately detect any unusual changes in the appearance or condition of your skin. If you note any such changes, such as changes in a mole, please call us right away to schedule an appointment.
