If you’re a resident looking for a dermatologist, then you need to look no further than Natural Image OC. Cosmetic or medical in nature. Continue reading to learn more about the dermatological treatments offered at Natural Image OC.
Cosmetic Dermatology Treatments
Acne is a common, yet embarrassing skin condition for many teenagers and adults. In fact, having acne cannot only affect your self-image, but your self-esteem, too. Luckily, with today’s technology, most cases of acne can be treated with one of our various acne treatment options, including:
- Accutane, a strong drug that is taken for about four or five months, and typically rids oneself of acne for about a year after treatment;
- Medical acne treatments, including oral and topical medications; and
- Various laser treatments to remove clogged pores and dead skin.
Laser Treatments for Acne and Pigmentation Marks
Not only can acne be humiliating for residents when they are experiencing a breakout, but acne and the urge to pick at it can leave telltale scarring for years to come. Other residents might have never had a problem with acne, but have unattractive pigmentation marks on their faces that they want removed. Fortunately, a dermatologist like the ones at Natural Image OC can help treat your acne scarring and pigmentation marks through a variety of laser and micro needling treatment options, which remove damaged skin and promote healthy skin growth.
Leg and Facial Veins
Dark veins that show through your skin or appear to “push through” can be an embarrassing condition for residents, whether they appear on the face or the legs. Did you know that a dermatologist can help with this condition, too? Laser treatments or sclerotherapy, in which a chemical is injected into an affected vein to promote scarring and close the vein, may help eliminate these unattractive veins and spider veins from your face and legs.
Chemical Peels to Bring Out the Best Version of You
Many of our patients see a cosmetic dermatologist because they want to be the best version of themselves. A chemical peel, applied by a dermatologist, can help you achieve that goal. By peeling away dead skin and impurities from the skin surface, chemical peels may make you look like a healthier, more youthful version of yourself without ever having to go under the knife.
Medical Dermatology Treatments
Annual Skin Cancer Screenings
You may not realize it, but even if you don’t have cosmetic dermatology desires or a medical skin condition, you should see a dermatologist at least once a year for an annual skin cancer screening – no matter what color your skin is. This is because skin cancer, which can be deadly, may appear in many forms, shapes, and colors and an untrained eye may not catch it. When you visit a dermatologist at Natural Image OC, your entire body will be inspected to look for any signs or symptoms of skin cancer. Any tumors or marks that may be found can be removed and biopsied, too.
Some residents suffer from dermatitis, a general term to describe medically-caused inflammatory skin conditions that include itching, redness, thickening and scaling of the skin as well as skin eruptions. One of the most common dermatitis conditions is called Atopic Eczema, a general allergic, or hyper-sensitivity, to various allergens. A dermatologist from Natural Image OC can help treat your case of eczema or other dermatitis condition with antihistamines, topical corticosteroids, or cool compresses.
