Common Skin Conditions We Treat

There are numerous common skin conditions that can affect your skin, including those described below. You can use this list of terms for common skin conditions to help you identify signs and symptoms, and to guide you toward additional information about causes, risk factors, distinguishing mild from severe cases, treatment options, and when to see a doctor.

Acne

Acne is a skin condition, common among teenagers, in which hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells on the skin on the face, chest, shoulders, and back, and/or other areas. Typical acne symptoms include small, sensitive, red bumps, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, painful pus-filled lumps under the skin, and painful solid lumps under the skin. Persistent severe acne can cause scars and long-term emotional effects. Parents of teens with acne should consult with your family primary care physician about acne removal or other teen acne treatment, and people with adult acne should also seek your doctor's advice.

Eczema

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a common skin condition in children, but also develops in adults of all ages. It is a long-lasting (chronic) skin condition that typically flares up for a period of time and then subsides. Eczema can accompany asthma or hay fever. Symptoms vary from person to person, and can include itchy, red skin, small bumps, which may secrete fluid, and may develop crust-like scabs after being scratched, and dry, cracked, and/or scaly, thick skin. Itching can be severe, frequently at night.

Liver Spots

Liver spots (solar lentigines), also called age spots, are small dark spots on the skin. Liver spots are of varying sizes. These typically appear on the areas of skin that are most exposed to sunlight, such as the face, shoulders, arms, and hands. Age spots are most common in adults over age 50.

Moles

One of the most common skin growths is the mole. Moles are typically brown or black in color, varying in size. They may develop on any area of skin. Moles usually appear during childhood, or in young adults age 25 or under. The average individual has between 10-40 moles. Moles may eventually disappear, or remain unchanged throughout a person's life. Or, the growths can gradually change with time, possibly becoming raised, or changing in color.

Other Treatment Options Available

  • Botox®
  • Botox is a branded term that refers to a highly-purified protein fill designed for use to relax the muscles that are creating frown lines, crow's feet, and other unwanted skin wrinkles.

  • Laser hair removal
  • A beam of laser light is focused on the unwanted hair, damaging the follicle, inhibiting regrowth of the hair for months, or possibly even years. The process of laser hair removal precisely targets only the unwanted hair(s) and does not damage the surrounding area of skin. Laser hair removal is for people who want to discontinue shaving or waxing the skin area.

  • Topical Treatments
  • These are medicated creams or ointments. Other treatments include oral medications (taken by mouth), and therapies that do not involve either topical or oral medications (such as light treatments, chemical skin peels, skin growth removal, and others).
