What Is Medical Dermatology?

The truth is, every aspect of dermatology is "medical." Dermatology is a specialty that involves diagnostic and treatment protocols for clinical issues that diminish the health of your skin and may lead to troublesome symptoms and additional skin damage. At Audubon Dermatology, we offer technologically advanced comprehensive skin care, including medical and cosmetic dermatology to not only keep your skin healthy, but also looking its absolute best.

What Conditions Are Treated With Medical Dermatology?

  • Skin Cancer Treatment: We employ a variety of therapies for pre cancers, or actinic keratoses, including topical chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy, Fraxel Dual laser, and cryotherapy.
  • Acne Treatment: Chronic acne is a complex condition that requires medical oversight to balance and heal the skin.
  • Birthmark and Skin Growth Treatment: Birthmarks and many skin growths are cosmetic concerns most times, and we can help you with these common problems.
  • Eczema Treatment: Eczema is a chronic condition that cannot be cured, so we work with our patients to help them manage the symptoms that affect their self-esteem and quality of life.
  • Psoriasis Treatment: Psoriasis is a chronic disorder that affects 2% of the U.S. population. It usually appears as thick, red or white flaky patches.
  • Dermatological Surgery: In some cases, dermatology surgery is needed to remove a bothersome skin growth or other abnormality.
  • Total Body Digital Photography: Total body digital photography is a tool that we use to detect pre-cancerous, cancerous, and benign lesions on your skin.
  • Hair Loss: Hair loss is a problem that many men and women manage on their own, yet the effects can be detrimental to how you feel about your appearance.
  • Hyperhidrosis: Excessive sweating is an embarrassing problem, and we can help.
  • Full Body Skin Exam: Our full body skin exam is a diagnostic tool that helps Dr. Hooper and Dr. Jackson identify skin problems early and monitor any changes to your skin that may require preventative or corrective treatment.
  • Rosacea Treatment: Rosacea causes a range of issues with the skin, such as redness, blemishes, and irritation.

What Should I Expect From Medical Dermatology Treatments?

Some skin conditions can be treated quickly, but in most cases, treatments may take time to improve your skin. Dr. Hooper and Dr. Jackson will explain what to expect from your treatments during consultation.
