Dermatology Q & A

What is dermatology?

Dermatology is an area of medicine focusing on your skin, along with the health of your hair and nails.

Your skin provides you with essential protection, keeping your inner tissues and organs safe from infections and injuries. It also serves a vital function in temperature regulation, for example, helping you to cool down by sweating.

Your skin contains vast numbers of nerves as well, giving you your sense of touch and warning you of potential dangers.

Your skin deserves the best of care, not just to keep you looking good but to ensure you stay healthy.

What conditions can dermatology treat?

Dermatology covers all conditions that affect your skin, hair, and nails. There’s a vast number of these, but some of the more common conditions treated at National Healthcare Center include:

  • Acne
  • Eczema and dermatitis
  • Rosacea
  • Cold sores
  • Nail fungus
  • Ringworm and scabies
  • Shingles
  • Warts
  • Dandruff
  • Psoriasis
  • Rashes

The team at National Healthcare Center provides skin cancer screenings to help identify skin cancers like malignant melanoma at the earliest stage of their development before they spread and become life-threatening.

They can also diagnose and treat skin allergies using noninvasive allergy testing techniques.

What kinds of dermatology treatments might I need?

As there are so many different kinds of dermatology conditions, there’s also a broad range of potential treatments. Some of these include:

  • Creams and ointments
  • Laser therapy
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy
  • Medication
  • Phototherapy
  • Photodynamic therapy
  • Skin camouflage
  • Dermatology surgery
  • Cryosurgery
  • Chemical peels
  • Microdermabrasion

If you have acne, National Healthcare Center can create an effective acne treatment plan to reduce acne and minimize scarring. They can also remove moles and treat other skin problems that keep you from having blemish-free skin.

The team also provides treatments for autoimmune skin disorders, including eczema and rosacea. If cancer screening identifies suspicious lesions on your skin, they can remove them and have them tested. Treatments for hair loss include steroid injections, natural growth factors, and low-level laser therapy.
