Medical dermatology is the treatment of skin conditions, such as psoriasis, rosacea, acne, skin cancer, warts, keloids, cysts, and many others. The many varieties of skin conditions that people suffer each have their own set of causes, symptoms and treatments. Depending on the type of skin condition you may suffer from, your treatment will vary greatly. A medical dermatologist will not only be able to accurately diagnose your condition, but help you get started on the best treatment plan for your unique situation. Medical solutions available for medical dermatology may include topical and/or oral medications, laser therapy, and/or surgical removal, depending on the specific condition.
Types of medical dermatology treatments
Lane Dermatology employs the latest techniques and tools to treat skin conditions. Skin cancers, cysts and benign problematic lesions can be removed using minimal scarring techniques. Laser therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, photodynamic laser therapy and fractional CO2 laser therapy are some of the techniques we use to treat acne, precancers and scars. Birthmarks, rosacea, redness and scars typically respond well to laser therapy.
In addition to common skin conditions, we detect and treat skin cancer. By monitoring moles and other unusual growths on the skin, we can identify skin cancer early and design a treatment plan. Skin cancer can typically be cured when caught early on, which is why it is so important to consult a dermatologist quickly after finding an abnormal lesion.
The latest in skin cancer treatment
We are nationally recognized for our Mohs micrographic surgery, a precise skin cancer treatment that has the highest rate of success. Mohs surgery removes the skin cancer carefully and accurately, layer by layer. When tissue is removed, it is examined under a microscope until a cancer-free tissue plane is reached. The careful examination of the tissue layers helps to ensure the complete removal of skin cancer.
Using the latest medical dermatology treatments, Lane Dermatology can improve the health and quality of life of patients living with uncomfortable or unsightly skin disorders. We have the most comprehensive lasers in Columbus, GA and the region. Our wide range of treatments means we can customize a treatment plan for your specific needs.
