Melasma is a skin condition that creates brown patches of skin in areas that get significant sun exposure. Our skilled team members work hard restoring your skin and helping you achieve a smooth, even complexion.
Psoriasis is an inflammation in the skin driven by the body’s own immune system. The inflammation in the skin causes red, itchy, and scaly lesions mainly around elbows, knees and scalp. While not contagious, it’s important to seek the help of a dermatologist.
A rash is an abnormal change in your skin’s texture or color, usually characterized by a red, scaly irritation on your skin. Because of the sheer number of rashes and their subtle differences, specialized training is required to properly diagnose and treat rashes.
Warts are non-cancerous skin growths that appear when a virus infects the top layer of skin. Although they aren’t dangerous, they are contagious. As with any noticeable change in your skin, it’s best to consult our team, so we can provide treatment options.
Dry skin is a very common, benign condition of the skin. Occasionally dry skin can progress to inflammation of the skin (dermatitis). In this case, you may want to visit your dermatologist to discuss treatments that can help improve your symptoms.
Hair Loss (Alopecia)
The cause of male pattern hair loss can typically be summed up in one word – genetics. If you’d like to learn more, we can educate you about the treatment options and possible side effects to help you determine the best course of action.
Skin Care Screenings
Skin cancer doesn’t discriminate. Anyone can get skin cancer, whether young or old, fair or dark, and it’s the most common type of cancer in the United States. Most people should have a professional skin examination once a year.
A skin spot referred to as a “precancerous lesion” is usually a specific sun-induced growth called actinic keratosis. It’s one of the most common issues we see in dermatology, and it’s what prompts most patients to schedule their dermatologist visits.
A biopsy is the removal of a piece of skin to help render a diagnosis of skin cancers or inflammatory conditions. Dermatologists biopsy an area to confirm a diagnosis that cannot be rendered with the eyes alone. We need a microscope to be certain.
Epiphany Dermatology treats fungal infections of the skin, as well as fungal infections in hair and nails. Often, these infections appear as itchy, scaley, rashes on the skin. We can typically diagnose fungal infections immediately by their characteristic appearance.
Moles are the most common skin growth and there are several reasons to have them removed or checked. Moles that appear to be changing or any new moles after age 30 should be checked by our team. Early detection of melanoma is critical.
Skin excision is a surgery where we cut out damaged skin tissue. It is a full-thickness removal — meaning we remove all layers of the tissue (epidermis, dermis, and into the subcutaneous fat layer). We then suture it back together with stitches for optimal healing.
