What Is Medical Dermatology?
Dermatology is a specialty of medicine focusing on all skin, hair and nails, but it can be broken down further into cosmetic dermatology and medical dermatology. A medical dermatologist at Clarkston Dermatology can diagnose and treat everything from acne and dermatitis to rosacea, eczema, and skin cancer using dermatologic surgery, prescription medication, and non-invasive treatments.
What Medical Dermatology Services Do You Offer?
Clarkston Dermatology offers a range of medical dermatology services to diagnose and treat chronic and acute skin conditions ranging from rashes and eczema to skin cancer.
- Skin Cancer
- If you have symptoms of skin cancer, Clarkston Dermatology can help diagnose you and determine the next step in treatment. Two of our most popular skin cancer treatments are Mohs surgery and superficial radiotherapy.
- Mohs Surgery
- This revolutionary surgical technique has a very high cure rate in the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. At Clarkston Dermatology, we have a fellowship-trained dermatologist who can perform your Mohs surgery in-house.
- Angiomas and Hemangiomas (Red Spots)
- Hemangiomas and angiomas are harmless red spots or growths made up of blood vessels that can be treated effectively with laser therapy.
- Acne Treatments
- We offer a range of effective acne treatments for both adult and teen acne and scars including oral treatments, chemical peels, laser therapy, and extraction.
- Eczema Treatments
- Light therapy and prescription medications, including biologic therapies, can be used to manage eczema or atopic dermatitis which causes itchy, rough, and inflamed skin. At Clarkston Dermatology, we are a leader in research with ground-breaking biologic therapies that work to treat the root cause of your eczema.
