Why You Should See a Dermatologist
posted: Dec. 17, 2020.
Here’s when it might be beneficial for you to see a dermatologist.
A dermatologist can be a lifesaver for many men and women dealing with skin problems. After all, the skin is the body’s largest organ, so any problems are often visible and can affect appearance and self-esteem. Wondering if you should turn to our Tamarac, FL, dermatologists Drs. Melanie and David Hecker? You may just want to if you are dealing with any of these issues,
Acne is one of the main reasons people visit our Tamarac, FL, dermatologists. No matter whether you are dealing with blackheads, whiteheads or deep, cystic acne, our dermatology team can provide the right medication and treatments for the type and cause of your acne symptoms.
While over-the-counter medications may be effective for those with milder symptoms, most of the time the medications and treatments we offer such as chemical peels, laser therapy, or prescription-strength topical treatments are going to provide better results.
You must be watching and examining your skin once a month to look for any changes in moles. This is the best way to catch skin cancer early. Of course, everyone should visit a dermatologist once a year for a comprehensive and professional skin cancer screening.
Moles should stay relatively the same in shape, appearance, and color over time, so if you notice a mole that has grown larger, is developing multiple colors, has crusted over, or started to bleed it’s a good idea to schedule an immediate appointment with us.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Along with treatments for acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other skin problems, our dermatologists also provide treatments designed to enhance and improve your appearance. If you are interested in smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating sunspots and superficial scars, we also offer a variety of cosmetic options such as chemical peels and laser therapy.
Advice on Skin Care
Not all skincare products work the same. Some are going to be more effective for you than others but it’s important to understand what you’re hoping to achieve or improve with your skincare products. Drs. Melanie and David Hecker can be a wellspring of information regarding the right products and treatments. From anti-aging to acne, we can provide you with what you need to achieve dramatic results.
