Frequently Asked Questions
What are the main types of skin cancer?
The most common types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. The most common form of skin cancer is basal cell carcinoma. It is not fatal, but if it is not treated, it can cause serious damage to the body. On the other hand, squamous cell carcinoma is the most dangerous and can be fatal if left untreated.
What can I do to prevent skin cancer?
The ideal method to prevent skin cancer is to wear sunscreen daily. The sun’s rays are the cause of many types of skin cancer, and if you’ve spent many years in the sun without proper protection, you are at a greater risk of developing skin cancer. Make sure to have yearly skin cancer screenings at Dr. Sikorski’s office. You may think you know what to look for, but Dr. Sikorski has over 20 years of experience in dermatology and knows the detailed signs of skin cancer. Make an appointment with her today to schedule your cancer screening!
How many laser hair removal treatment sessions will I need to see full results?
The number of laser hair removal sessions you will need varies from patient to patient and depends on your skin type, hair color, hair density, and treatment area. Most often, Dr. Sikorski’s patients will need at least five treatment sessions at regular intervals to see full results. Every appointment brings improvement to the treated area, but only Dr. Sikorski will be able to tell you how many appointments you’ll need to be rid of that pesky hair.
Can medical acne treatments help improve severe acne?
Absolutely! Severe acne typically consists of chronic cystic acne, which can be treated with chemical peels, prescription medication, photodynamic therapy, cortisone injections, and other treatments you can only receive from a licensed dermatologist.
How is acne diagnosed?
Typically, acne is classified into 4 Grades: Mild, Moderate, Severe, and Cystic. These grades are based on the type of acne, the severity of the acne, and the number of lesions caused by acne. Only Dr. Sikorski will be able to accurately diagnose and treat your acne after an initial consultation with her in her office. During that time, she will be able to create an effective treatment plan for your unique case.
In what areas does eczema typically appear?
Depending on the age of the patient, eczema can appear almost anywhere on the skin. It typically shows up on the cheeks, foreheads, and chins of babies; in warm, moist places such as the elbow and knee creases of children; and on the face, neck, and hands of adults.
Is eczema contagious?
No! Absolutely not! Eczema cannot be spread to others, and children should not be separated from their peers because of it. They should be allowed to interact with other children, as they pose no threat to the health and well-being of others.
Does sun exposure help eczema?
Eczema does typically improve during the summer months. However, following good sun protection guidelines should always take priority. Dr. Sikorski recommends her patients use sunscreen every day and wear protective clothing and hats to shade their faces.
