Medical Dermatology

Treatment of Skin Conditions

Medical dermatology is the treatment of skin conditions, such as acne scars, psoriasis, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, skin cancer, keloids, and cysts. The many different skin conditions people suffer all have their own causes and symptoms. Treatments are vary widely depending on the condition.

A medical dermatologist will be able to accurately diagnose your condition and help form the best treatment plan for your unique situation. Contour Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery Center has many available solutions that include laser therapy, surgical removal, or medicines depending on you diagnosis.

SKIN CANCER

Skin cancer is an abnormal growth of skin cells. Skin Cancer most often develops on skin exposed to the sun. However, this very typical form of cancer can also occur on other areas not exposed to sunlight.

Hyperpigmentation on the face

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanocytes (cells that are found naturally in the skin) overproduce pigments known as melanin, resulting in darker tones than the surrounding skin.

CYSTS

A cyst is an abnormal closed, hollow, and membranous sac filled with air, bodily fluids, keratin, and/or pus if the cyst has ever been infected. There are many different kinds of cysts, almost all of which are benign and do not require medical intervention

ACNE

With most medical treatments, doctors and their patients must evaluate what we call the risk-benefit equation, and determine if the benefits of treatment outweigh the risks.

eczema

The terms “eczema” or “dermatitis” are used to describe certain kinds of inflamed skin conditions including allergic contact dermatitis and nummular dermatitis. Eczema can be red, blistering, oozing, scaly, brownish, or thickened and usually itches. A special type is called atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema.

scars

Scars form as part of the body’s natural response to healing following damage to the skin. Almost all trauma to the skin results in some degree of scarring except for very minor injuries. Scars are composed of collagen, a fibrous protein found naturally in the skin, but unlike normal skin in which collagen is randomly cross-linked, the collagen in a scar is deposited in straight lines resulting in reduced functionality.

Medical dermatology focuses on the health of the skin by correcting abnormalities. Your skin’s appearance will improve. Dr Timothy Jochen and the expertly trained staff at Contour Dermatology takes the utmost care to minimize scarring and treat the skin with the most effective methods available. Contour Dermatology uses the latest techniques to treat skin conditions. Laser therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, photodynamic laser therapy and fractionated CO2 laser therapy are some of the techniques we use to treat acne. Acne scars can be treated by a process called photodynamic rejuvenation. Moles, birthmarks, rosacea and scars typically respond well to laser therapy. Moles may be removed as a preventative measure against skin cancer.

In addition to common skin conditions, we detect and treat skin cancer. By monitoring moles and other unusual growths on the skin, we can identify skin cancer early and design a treatment plan. Skin cancer can typically be cured when caught early on, which is why it’s so important to consult a dermatologist quickly after finding an abnormal rash, bump or scar. We are nationally recognized for our Mohs micrographic surgery, a precise skin cancer treatment that has a high rate of success. Mohs surgery removes the skin cancer layer by layer. When tissue is removed, it is examined under a microscope until cancer-free tissue is reached. The careful examination of the tissue layers helps ensure the complete removal of skin cancer. Using the latest medical dermatology treatments, Contour Dermatology can improve the health and quality of life of patients living with uncomfortable or unsightly skin disorders. We have the most comprehensive lasers in Southern California. Our wide range of treatments means we can customize a treatment plan for your specific needs.
