Do you have a regular appointment set up with your local dermatologist?

If not, it might be time to add a dermatologist to your list of essential healthcare professionals. A general dermatologist can treat a variety of skin conditions, ranging from cosmetic in nature to those that could be detrimental to your health.

Wondering what conditions a dermatologist can treat? Take a look here.

Treatments Offered By a Dermatologist

1. Acne and acne scarring.

If you have breakouts that just won’t respond to your skincare regimen, a general dermatologist can help you get clear skin again.

While most over-the-counter acne solutions are one-size-fits-all, a dermatologist can look at your skin, your medical history, and your lifestyle to make a recommendation as to which acne treatment is right for you. From topical solutions to antibiotics and peels, your dermatologist can be your biggest secret weapon in the fight against acne.

2. Eczema and psoriasis.

If you have red, itchy scales or flakes that make you feel self-conscious, a dermatologist can provide you with a comprehensive range of eczema or psoriasis treatments.

With either of these two skin conditions, it’s important to have a dermatologist in your corner, as he or she can help with your symptoms. There’s no cure for eczema or psoriasis, so your dermatologist can come in handy when you’re having flare-ups.

3. Hair loss.

Surprise! Many dermatologists can help with hair loss, as this condition can be caused by thinning or receding hair follicles. A good dermatologist can treat the scalp to help encourage thicker, healthier hair follicle growth.

4. Excessive sweating.

If you’ve been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), a dermatologist can provide you with a number of treatments to minimize your symptoms. Topical medicine can be used to reduce excessive sweating and your dermatologist can consult you on the best treatment for your condition.

5. Skin cancer.

Finally, if you think you have skin cancer or your family has a medical history of skin cancer, your dermatologist can be key to keeping you healthy and happy. Your dermatologist can provide you with annual skin cancer checkups, as well as provide treatments for any skin cancer that may be found.

Dermatologists can treat many different skin conditions and concerns in addition to what is listed above. At Levy Dermatology, we recommend coming in for a customized consultation to discuss how we can best help you. Learn more about the different treatments a dermatologist can provide here.
