Medical Dermatology Services
Dermatologist in Evansville, IN
Medical dermatology involves conditions that affect your skin, hair, and nails. At Dermatology Associates of Indy, our highly skilled dermatology team is experienced in the evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of these problems.
We can help you protect your health and well-being by ensuring the health of your skin. Many skin conditions or diseases can be managed conservatively, with noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments. In some cases, however, surgery may be required – as in the case of skin lesions, skin cancer, and some moles. No matter your medical skin care need, our dermatology team does it all.
Skin conditions we treat include:
- Actinic keratoses (precancer)
- Aging skin
- Athlete’s foot
- Basal cell carcinoma
- Dry skin
- Fungal infections
- Hair loss
- Melasma (skin discoloration)
- Nail disorders
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Sun damage
Our comprehensive medical dermatology services include:
Biopsies are usually the first step taken to help identify or confirm a skin condition diagnosis – especially in cases of suspected skin cancer or unusual rashes. Biopsies involve removing a sample of the skin cells in question, which are then sent to a laboratory for further evaluation.
An annual skin cancer screening is critical to ensuring that any signs of skin cancer are caught early enough to be easily and entirely removed. You can ensure your long-term health with regular visits to your dermatology provider for a thorough skin cancer screening. Basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas are the most common types of skin cancers, but melanoma is the deadliest.
In most cases, removing the skin cancer cells is all that is required. This may be done via excision or freezing (cryosurgery) to kill the cancer cells. Your dermatology provider can identify which type of skin cancer treatment may be right for you.
Medications are typically used to treat many types of skin infections. The drugs used may include antibiotics, topical antifungal medications, or other medications, depending on the type of infection involved. Rashes generally require an anti-inflammatory to relieve symptoms.
If your medical dermatology issues are cleared up and you’re ready to move on to some cosmetic treatments or professional skin care advice, we can help with that, too.
