Should You See a Dermatologist?

Dermatology Services Las Vegas, NVMost adults see their general doctor once a year for a good old-fashioned physical check-up. Children may see their doctor even more frequently depending on age, and most of us are relatively good about seeing the dentist twice a year. What may go widely unrecognized is the fact that dermatologic exams fit into the scope of wellness, too. We are pleased to announce that we now have a board-certified dermatologist on staff in our office just outside of Las Vegas to serve your skin health needs. The question is, when should you see her?

What a Dermatologist Does

Dermatology is the field of medicine devoted to the health of the hair, skin, and nails. Dermatologists are physicians who have received extensive training to diagnose and treat the numerous conditions that may affect the largest bodily organ. Some of the conditions routinely diagnosed and treated by a dermatologist include:

  • Over-the-counter products are not always sufficient for acne-sufferers. Dermatologists have drug therapies and other techniques for helping acne patients enjoy clearer skin.
  • Eczema and psoriasis. These chronic skin conditions may affect infants, children, and adults alike. There is no cure for eczema or psoriasis, so routine care is vital to healthy skin management.
  • Also a chronic skin condition, rosacea tends to affect the cheeks and face by causing easy flushing or blushing. Advanced psoriasis can cause uncomfortable pustules and papules, all of which can be managed with ongoing dermatologic care.
  • Skin cancer. Signature Plastic Surgery has offered skin cancer treatment for some time, and now we also offer professional skin cancer screenings. A full-body screening is recommended on a yearly basis to accurately monitor growths on the skin from the head to the toes. It is estimated that 20% of the people in our country will develop some type of skin cancer. With the number of cases increasing each year, it is vital to have ways of achieving early detection. At this time, full-body screening is it.

You don’t have to have an active skin problem at the moment to see a dermatologist. Dr. Alexandria Booth has the training and background to help you unlock the secret to better skin. To schedule your visit, contact us at 702-684-5502.
