Keloid Scar Treatment

Many patients inherit their tendency to form keloids. While normal scarification involves collagen fibers laying in parallel to one another, keloidal scarring is observed when collagen fibers lay at right angles to each other (instead of neatly stacking). Think of a straw hay stacked on top... read more

Skin Cancer Squamous Cell

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of skin cancer most commonly found on sun-exposed skin. Scalp, upper ears, face, and shoulders are areas I most commonly find our patients' "squames". About a quarter-of-a-million Americans develop SCC every year. Unlike basal cell cancers that can take years to become metastatic (spreading to distant parts of the body), SCC can do so far more rapidly and is, therefore, considered a more urgent type of skin cancer. read more

Skin Cancer Basal Cell

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a type of skin cancer most commonly found on sun-exposed skin. Scalp, upper ears, face, and shoulders are areas I most commonly find our patients' BCCs. These are the most common form of skin cancer, accounting for over 80% of all skin cancers. BCCs are slow growers and can take years to become metastatic (spread to distant parts of the body), but a BCC will continue to grow locally, aggressively, destroying normal tissue in its path. On the face, where there is limited real estate before a BCC affects vital structures like eyes and nose, the effects can be devastating. read more

Skin Cancer Melanoma

Melanoma is our most dreaded skin cancer. When discovered early, 5 year survival rates are over 95%, just like other skin cancers. Any delay, however, and 5-year survival drops to 40-50%. Early detection is critical, period, because this type of skin cancer can spread through the blood stream to vital organs very quickly. read more

Alopecia (Hair Loss)

Each hair follicle on your head grows 10-12mm per month during its growth or anagen phase. This lasts for about 5 years at which time this follicle enters a resting or telogen phase. The hair then sheds and the process begins anew. That’s all there is to it. It’s normal to lose up to 100 hairs daily, so expect to see some hair in the drain and on your pillow in the morning…that’s perfectly normal. read more

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition characterized by thick scaly plaques on the elbows, knees, and scalp. While never contagious, the condition can lead to significant psychosocial stress surrounding one’s own appearance and flakiness. Some studies suggest that the impact of psoriasis on a patient’s mood can rival even terminal illness. Good news is that dermatologic care for patients afflicted by psoriasis has vastly improved over the last 5 years. read more

Dysplastic Nevi (Atypical Moles)

Dysplastic nevi are a topic of great debate among dermatologists and one of the staple conditions we treat here at our offices. Normal moles are easy to call and melanoma is easy to spot, but what about in between these conditions? Skin cancer is not a light switch, on/off, but rather a spectrum of atypia leading up to melanoma. This “in-between” phase is a grey area that’s not entirely normal, but also not irregular enough to be called a melanoma. read more

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic condition classified within the acne family, but can be differentiated from acne by a few features: · The lack of comedones (white and black heads) · Unique triggers not found in acne, like alcohol, strong emotion, and spicy foods. These triggers cause a reproducible flushing of the cheeks. · Eye symptoms (dryness, itchiness) that frequently accompany rosacea and are not found in acne. read more
