Acne - A common skin disease that causes pimples, which form when hair follicles under the skin clog up. Most pimples form on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Anyone can get acne, but it is common in teenagers and young adults. It is not serious, but it can cause scars.
Benign Lesions – Our team of dermatologists provide precision surgical removal of benign (non-cancerous) skin lesions.
Cancerous Lesions – Our dermatologists provide precision surgical removal of all types of cancerous skin lesions, including basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer and melanoma.
Dermatitis/Eczema - Includes several different types of skin swelling. Dermatitis is not dangerous, but most types cause red, swollen and itchy skin. Factors that can cause dermatitis/eczema include other diseases, irritating substances, allergies and genetic makeup.
Hair Disorders - Can include infection of the hair follicles, hair loss, excessively oily or dry hair/scalp, and many other conditions that can affect the health and appearance of the hair.
Hyperhidrosis - Hyperhidrosis is a disease characterized by excessive sweating. There are different types of hyperhidrosis and several treatment options.

Nails – Nail disorders include problems with the color, shape, texture, or thickness of the fingernails or toenails. They can be caused by injuries, fungus or yeast, bacterial infection, viral warts under the nail, or certain infections.
Psoriasis - A skin disease that causes itchy or sore patches of thick, red skin with silvery scales. Psoriasis usually appears on the elbows, knees, scalp, back, face, palms and feet, but it can show up on other parts of the body.
Rosacea - A long-term disease that causes redness and pimples that affect the skin and sometimes the eyes. Rosacea is most common in women and people with fair skin. It usually starts between age 30 and 60.
Skin Allergies - Types of skin allergies include atopic dermatitis, hives, rashes, and others. A person with skin allergies has an oversensitive immune response to certain substances (allergens), wherein chemicals called histamines are released. This usually causes itching, swelling, hives, rashes, and other symptoms, which may vary from person to person.
Skin Cancers - The 2 most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. They usually form on the head, face, neck, hands and arms. Another type of skin cancer, melanoma, is more dangerous but less common. Our dermatologists provide surgical removal of all types of cancerous lesions.
Skin Infections - There are many different types of skin infections – including those caused by bacteria, staphylococcus, yeast, fungi and more. While the skin normally has many types of bacteria living on it, intact skin is an effective barrier that keeps them from entering and growing within the body. When there is a break in the skin, infection can occur -- causing pain, inflammation, and a range of other symptoms.
Warts - These small, usually painless growths on the skin are caused by a virus. They are generally harmless, but can be disfiguring, embarrassing, and occasionally itchy or painful (particularly on the feet).
