Skin conditions that we provide treatment for include:
Acne develops when tiny glands just beneath the surface of your skin, called sebaceous glands, produce excess oil that, along with loose skin cells, clogs the follicles in your skin, eventually forming a pimple.
We provide treatment options ranging from traditional oral and topical medicines to more advanced technological solutions, such as laser therapy.

Also known as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating is an uncomfortable condition that makes you self-conscious in public because you sweat more than the situation calls for.

However, if it’s found to be cancerous, it should be removed with a simple procedure performed right in our office.

Psoriasis develops when skin cells in certain parts of your body grow and multiply much faster than usual – over a period of days instead of the usual four weeks. This red patches of itchy, scaly skin that can range from mild to severe, and your scalp, hands, elbows, back, knees, and feet are most commonly affected. A psoriasis flare-up can be triggered by a variety of factors, but topical ointments and creams, prescription medications, or UV light phototherapy are effective treatments offered at West Dermatology.

Rosacea is a skin condition that often resembles a sunburn or an allergic reaction, as it is characterized by red swollen patches on your face, especially your cheeks, chin and nose. There are no known causes for rosacea, although it’s thought to be hereditary, autoimmune-related, or even microbial. Different subtypes of rosacea include facial redness, acne rosacea, skin thickening, and eye irritation.
As with many skin conditions that have no known cause, rosacea also has no known cure, although your symptoms and condition can be managed with any number of treatments, depending on which type of rosacea you have from topical creams to laser and intense pulsed light.

It is said that every scar has a story, but just as some stories should remain secret, some scars are better off concealed.

About one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in his or her life, but not all skin cancer is the same. There are three types of skin cancer – basal cell, squamous cell, and melanoma. Treatment varies, depending on many factors, so be active in protecting yourself and your skin by avoiding too much UV exposure and seeing your dermatologist as soon as you see warning signs.

Sun and Age Damage
It’s thought that nearly 90% of the signs of skin aging is due to sun exposure, which not only affects the surface of your skin but also the DNA of your skin cells. This is what leads to wrinkles, lines, and skin discoloration. Treatment options are plenty, but which ones are effective depends on many factors. A consultation with West Dermatology will help determine the extent of skin damage and the proper treatment for your particular case.
However, you can always help protect yourself and your skin by avoiding too much sun exposure, applying sunscreen daily, and covering up your skin when you are out in the sun.

Warts are contagious, usually small, flesh-toned bumps that develop anywhere on your body. There are a handful of types – common, periungual (under a toenail or fingernail), filiform (long, narrow facial warts), flat (pin-sized warts often found in bunches on children), and plantar (rough, grainy warts on the bottom of the foot).
Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can be effectively treated with at-home treatments or treatments from a board-certified dermatologist at West Dermatology, depending on a variety of factors.
