Common Skin Conditions

Your skin's health is important, which is why the South Coast Dermatology team works to identify and treat a range of skin conditions. For certain chronic diseases, we can work to manage symptoms. In other cases, we can work to cure the problem. It all starts with a consultation.

Acne Procedures

Acne Procedures

The most common skin problem in the United States, acne affects millions of people. From blackheads to nodules, we can help reduce outbreaks with light therapy, topical medications, and more.

Treatments

  • Topical Medications
  • Blue-Light Therapies
  • Chemical Peels
Eczema Procedures

Eczema Procedures

A family of itchy red skin inflammations, eczema is not curable, but can be managed by monitoring triggers and reducing flare-ups.

Treatments

  • Topical Medications
  • Ultraviolet Phototherapy
Rosacea Procedures

Rosacea Procedures

This persistent facial redness can spread to other areas, too. Like other chronic conditions, reducing exposure to triggers is key.

Treatments

  • Topical Medications
  • IPL
  • Chemical Peels
Rash Procedures

Rash Procedures

Rashes can have any number of causes. We can work with you to identify the type of rash and explain what can be done to clear it up.

Treatments

  • Topical Medications
  • Patch Testing
Moles Procedures

Moles Procedures

Moles themselves are benign, but they can resemble or hide skin cancer cells. Regular skin checks can help identify problem areas, and concerning moles can be surgically removed or frozen.

Treatments

  • Regular skin checkups to ensure there is no change in size, shape, color.
Psoriasis Procedures

Psoriasis Procedures

This disease causes thick, scaly patches of skin to form, which is why discovering triggers and easing the discomfort of outbreaks is vital.

Treatments

  • Excimer Laser
  • Ultraviolet Phototherapy
  • Biologics
Skin Cancer Procedures

Skin Cancer Procedures

Prevention is the best tactic when it comes to skin cancer, so we encourage regular skin checks. If cancer cells are found, we can address them in a number of ways, including the sophisticated and successful Mohs surgery.

Treatments

  • The best treatment is prevention, like staying out of the sun during peak hours, using sunscreen, and regular skin examinations.
