Medical Dermatology Treatments Cleveland
Conveniently located to serve Cleveland, Beachwood, Lake County, Westlake
Medical dermatology serves as the foundation of healthy skin, offering a specialized branch of medicine dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and preventing a myriad of skin conditions. Its importance extends beyond mere aesthetics; it’s about safeguarding your skin’s health and well-being, as your skin is not only your body’s largest organ but also your primary defense against environmental factors.
What Are Medical Dermatology Treatments?
Medical dermatology treatments are an array of services that treat various skin conditions and rejuvenate the skin. There are specific treatments for each type of skin condition.
We offer four major medical dermatology services for our clients depending on the skin condition being addressed:
Photodynamic Therapy – Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can treat mild to serious skin conditions. It uses a photosensitizing drug activated by a light source. This treatment can destroy abnormal cells, minimize oversized pores, and address overactive oil glands.
Skin Cancer Treatment – Skin cancer treatment focuses on treating abnormal growths on the skin. It treats various kinds of skin cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, and melanoma. The cancer cells can be treated through methods such as freezing, excision, laser therapy, Mohs surgery, or chemotherapy.
Skin Checks – Skin cancer is easier to treat at an early stage. Therefore, it is important to detect skin cancer as soon as possible. We offer skin cancer screening services and perform a full-body exam to ensure that all potential cancer cells are detected and treated right away.
Varicose Vein Treatment – Varicose veins and spider veins are caused by the blood flowing in the wrong direction. This happens when the vein valves are damaged. We provide treatments for spider veins and varicose veins such as visual and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, RF ablation, and VenaSeal.
Conditions Treated by Medical Dermatology
Acne forms when the pores are clogged with dead skin cells and oil, creating an environment for bacteria. Another skin condition, eczema, appears as dry brown or red patches on the skin and is caused by the immune system or allergic reactions. The most common eczema is atopic dermatitis.
Psoriasis is a skin condition characterized by rapid production of cells on the skin’s surface. These lesions appear in the form of scales or patches. Another condition, rosacea, appears as pink patches on the skin. Finally, warts are small skin growths caused by an infection of the human papillomavirus (HPV).
The Importance of Regular Skin Checks
- Early Detection – Regular skin checks with a dermatologist help catch skin conditions, including skin cancer, in their early stages when treatment is often more effective.
- Prevent Serious Complications – Timely intervention with medical dermatology procedures can prevent skin conditions from progressing to more severe or complicated stages, reducing the risk of permanent damage.
- Individualized Care – Our team of Cleveland dermatologists can provide personalized recommendations for skin care, including tailored treatment plans for specific conditions, helping you achieve and maintain healthy skin.
- Peace of Mind – Routine skin checks offer peace of mind, knowing that your skin’s health is being monitored by a medical professional. It alleviates anxiety and uncertainty.
- Skin Cancer Prevention – Skin checks play a crucial role in early skin cancer detection. Identifying and treating skin cancer with skin cancer treatment in Cleveland in its initial stages can be life-saving.
Am I a Good Candidate for Medical Dermatology Services?
All people are ideal candidates for medical dermatology services. If you’ve noticed a skin issue, it’s important to have it diagnosed by an expert sooner rather than later. The sooner a condition is diagnosed and treated, the better the chances of effective treatment. This is particularly vital for potentially cancerous skin lesions.
