ACNE

Acne is a common skin disease that causes pimples. When hair follicles under your skin clog up they can cause pimples. Most pimples form on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Anyone can get acne, but it is common in teenagers and young adults.

ECZEMA

Eczema is a term for several different types of skin swelling. Dermatitis is another name for eczema. Most types cause dry, itchy skin and rashes on the face, inside the elbows and behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. Scratching the skin can cause it to turn red, and to swell and itch even more. We use phototherapy, including the Xtrac Laser, as a treatment option for eczema.

PSORIASIS

Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes itchy or sore patches of thick, red skin with silvery scales. You usually get the patches on your elbows, knees, scalp, back, face, palms and feet, but they can show up on other parts of your body. We use phototherapy, including the Xtrac Laser, as a treatment option for eczema.

ROSACEA

Rosacea is a long-term disease that affects your skin and sometimes your eyes. It causes redness and pimples. Rosacea is most common in women and people with fair skin. It most often affects middle-aged and older adults.

SKIN CANCER

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The two 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.

WARTS

Warts are growths on your skin caused by an infection with Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV. These can appear on your fingers, soles of your feet, or places you shave frequently. In children, warts often go away on their own. In adults, they tend to stay. If they hurt or bother you, or if they multiply, we can remove them. Chemical skin treatments usually work. If not, various freezing, surgical and laser treatments can remove warts.
