Dermatology

Your skin is the first line of defense against disease and injury. Dermatology is the surgical and nonsurgical care for conditions that affect skin, nails and hair, and it helps keep those areas of your body protected. You may need dermatology services if you have symptoms that affect the skin, including rashes or skin growths.

Conditions We Treat

Acne

Acne can be troubling or embarrassing. Severe acne can be quite painful and leave scars.

Actinic keratosis

These rough, scaly patches are caused by sun damage to the skin. Though they generally do not cause any symptoms, some of these patches can lead to skin cancer.

Cysts

Simple cysts are fluid-filled sacs. They may be small or large and grow in one or both breasts.

Eczema

This common skin condition causes skin to become red and itchy.

Hair and nail problems

Many conditions can affect the hair and nails, including:

  • Hair loss
  • Dandruff
  • Scalp psoriasis
  • Nail fungus

Psoriasis

This autoimmune disease causes scaly or red patches. Plaque psoriasis is the most common type.

Rosacea

This skin condition most often causes pustules or redness on the face. Vascular rosacea leads to inflamed blood vessels, while inflammatory rosacea results in pimples or papules.

Scars

Scars can come from surgical incisions, burns, acne, stretch marks, accidental cuts or other injuries.

Skin cancer

PeaceHealth can diagnose, treat and manage many types of skin cancer. Common types of skin cancers are:

  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Lymphoma of the skin
  • Kaposi sarcoma
  • Melanoma
  • Merkel cell skin cancer
  • Squamous cell carcinoma

Treatments Provided

Cosmetic procedures

Some skin conditions can affect the way you look. Your dermatologist can do procedures to help reduce these symptoms, including:

  • Laser resurfacing
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Hair removal
  • Hair implants
  • Chemical peels
  • Botox
  • Tattoo removal
  • Light therapy

Dermatology Surgery

Surgery may be needed to remove skin lesions, including cysts, lipomas and other skin growths. 

Full-body mole mapping

Skin cancer is often treatable when caught early. Full-body mole mapping helps locate any changes in your skin that might point to skin cancer. If you have lots of moles, this process uses photography to map your moles and sets a baseline to monitor changes and detect skin cancer early.

Skin cancer screening and biopsy

Clinical skin exams are visual inspections of your skin. Your dermatologist will look for any spots or moles which might appear precancerous or cancerous. He or she may use a device called a dermatoscope to get a closer look.

If an unusual spot is found on your skin, your dermatologist may do a biopsy, which removes skin tissue for testing./p>
