Dermatology for Adult Patients
Adults come to the dermatologist for numerous reasons. Many times, it is for cosmetic concerns like a desire to have their wrinkles treated with Botox, but did you know that board-certified dermatologists are trained to diagnose and treat thousands of medical problems? These range from common complaints like eczema and warts to rare conditions like cutaneous lymphoma, connective tissue diseases, and blistering disorders. At Sacred Heart Dermatology, we frequently encounter patients who have suffered in silence for years with a skin ailment that can be treated in a matter of weeks or even days.
Sacred Heart Dermatology recommends that adults receive one skin cancer screening per year. Skin cancers, including melanoma, are often easily treated when caught early. In certain scenarios, screening frequency may need to be increased to ensure a patient stays healthy. Some of these instances include patients who have received an organ transplant, and those who have a personal history or strong family history of skin cancer. If you have questions about your skin or have a spot of concern, we encourage you to make an appointment today.
