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.
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.
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.
Have you ever had a rash that just wouldn’t go away? Many people don’t know they have an allergy because reactions are often delayed. Patch testing involves applying a purified allergen to a person’s skin to see if it causes an allergic reaction.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sun spots are light brown to tan spots that appear on the skin and are usually from sun exposure. The most common body areas affected are the face, shoulders, arms, and hands. They are usually benign, however, skin cancer can develop a lesion.
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.
Injectable fillers help restore volume in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that come with age. Injectable fillers have also been used to make thin lips fuller, correct acne scars, and make the areas under the eyes less dark or puffy.
Most people don’t realize that there are several kinds of peels great for improving the appearance of the skin. Chemical peels should be done in a series of three to six peels. For best results, we recommend a series of six peels, three weeks apart.
