You may have a list of physicians on your care team, but have you ever visited a dermatologist? Everyone should have one, and we’re here to tell you the 7 most common reasons why.
- Annual Skin Exams
Being happy with the appearance of your skin isn’t a reason to skip seeing a dermatologist. All residents should have a trusted dermatologist on their care team and meet with them at least once a year for an annual skin exam and skin cancer screening. Doing so just might save your life!
2. Dermatitis Treatment
Dermatitis is a term for the general inflammation of the skin. One of the most common types of dermatitis is eczema, which is generally referred to as hypersensitivity to allergens and manifests itself as an itchy rash. If you have dermatitis or eczema, it’s likely that over-the-counter solutions just won’t cut it. It’s best that you see a dermatologist for proper diagnosis, treatment, and medication.
3. Melasma Treatment
Melasma, commonly referred to by mothers-to-be as the “mask of pregnancy,” is an unpleasant side effect of bearing children. With this skin condition, expectant mothers experience gray or brown patches on their face. It’s hard enough to go through 9 months of a growing belly and the aches and pains that accompany pregnancy. But melasma causes many mothers to miss out that beautiful pregnancy glow. With gentle, baby-safe treatments, Dr. Sikorski can make the “mask of pregnancy” disappear.
4. Acne Treatment
Acne is probably one of the top treatments that bring patients to Orange County dermatologist Dr. Sikorski, and it’s no wonder why. Acne can affect anyone, and cause embarrassing symptoms that you just can’t cover up. With a variety of treatment options such as medicinal Accutane treatment and laser treatments, Dr. Sikorski can make your case of acne a thing of the past.
5. Acne Scar Treatment
It doesn’t seem fair, but many acne sufferers who have had this condition are left with telltale scarring. Acne scars have a variety of different appearances, from flat red scars to red keloid scars, and everything in between. Regardless of what type of scarring you have as a result of former acne, a variety of microneedling and laser techniques can rid your face of these signs of acne for good.
6. Removal of Pigmentation and Brown Spots
Whether it’s from aging, sun exposure or genetics, many residents develop brown or other pigmentation spots on their bodies, such as on their face, which they find unattractive. With a variety of treatment options available, Dr. Sikorski can clear up these spots for good.
7. Skin Tightening and Fat Reduction
If you feel the skin in your face is looser than it needs to be, there are a variety of non-invasive treatment options you can undergo to tighten up your skin to give you a more youthful appearance.
