You love spending your time outside in sunny California. Whether it is a relaxing day on the beach or an intense hike for a workout with beautiful views, you prefer to live your life outdoors. These long days out require some thoughtful packing, such as making sure you have enough water to stay hydrated and snacks for when you are in a pinch. However, you are sometimes guilty of forgetting to take care of one part of yourself – your skin! Frequently forgetting to apply or reapply sunscreen can damage your skin and health, but you have treatment options available.
What is Cosmetic Dermatology?
Southern California cosmetic dermatology care is a blending of the medical and aesthetic branches to enhance your skin health as well as improve your appearance. You and your skin are unique, so it is important you receive unique, personalized care. While sun damage is a popular cause of skin imperfections, we treat a variety of other conditions and concerns.
What Is Acne?
Acne is one of the most common dermatological conditions. This skin condition is often associated with teenagers, but it impacts people during all stages of life. It usually appears as small raised red bumps on the skin, and it usually occurs on the face but can appear elsewhere. While many over-the-counter options exist, many of them are not as effective as professional care. When you visit with our team of experts, they may prescribe special creams or oral medications, or they may recommend minor procedures.
What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation refers to an imbalanced skin tone. While this is commonly attributed to sun damage, it can also be a result of chronic acne, genetic makeup, or more. It may seem like this is something that cannot be treated, but that is false! There are a variety of nonsurgical options available to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as chemical peels, IPL photo facials, or laser facials.
What Is Skin Cancer?
Skin cancer is, unfortunately, one of the most common types of cancer. However, it is also one of the most treatable types of cancer! Early detection for skin cancer may make all the difference in the world. One of the easiest ways to be proactive is to monitor your skin for any noticeable changes. Moles are some of the best indicators of melanoma or skin cancer, and changes – particularly in size, shape, color, or borders – can be a critical indicator it is time to seek dermatological care, such as with our expert team.
What Are Other Services Available?
There are a wide range of treatments available. While many of them are excellent choices for improving health, some of them are great methods of self-care! Laser hair removal is a nonsurgical treatment option that can help you get lots of your time back by reducing hair growth. There are also a variety of cosmetic injectable treatment options to create a younger, refreshed appearance so you can look and feel your best. Learn more during a consultation with an expert!
