At Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Specialists, we are committed to helping our patients feel comfortable in their own skin. This is no simple matter for patients who are struggling with visible, disfiguring, and even painful skin conditions. Many people picture skin conditions as angry, oozing lesions on the skin akin to leprosy that should be hidden from the public eye. However, many chronic conditions appear mild and include symptoms that are not visible on the skin or appear mild but cause significant discomfort.

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it is responsible for blocking bacteria and viruses as well as regulating body temperature. When conditions clog, inflame, or irritate your skin, they can cause itching, burning, redness, and swelling sensations; they can also create marks on the skin that affect your self-esteem. While many of these conditions are incurable, they can nevertheless be managed with proper treatment and a healthy amount of information from our experienced team.

Types of skin conditions range from mild rashes to cosmetic conditions such as rosacea and hyperpigmentation to conditions that begin under the skin, such as psoriasis. When you visit our office, our providers will examine your skin and discuss your symptoms with you to diagnose the type of skin condition which has developed and determine an appropriate treatment plan. Our caring providers and team can provide you with answers to any questions you have about managing and treating skin conditions, including the following:

  • Acne
