Eczema

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects millions worldwide. Its symptoms include red, itchy, and inflamed patches on the skin, often accompanied by dryness and scaling. Although the exact cause is unknown, genetic and environmental factors are believed to play a role. Effective treatment is crucial to alleviate discomfort, prevent infections, and manage flare-ups.

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation refers to the darkening or discoloration of patches on the skin caused by an excess production of melanin. It can manifest as age spots, melasma, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Common causes include sun exposure, hormonal changes, acne, and skin trauma. Effective treatment options, such as laser therapy or chemical peels, help reduce pigmentation, even out skin tone, and restore a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Keloid Scars

Keloid scars are raised, thickened, and often itchy scars that extend beyond the boundaries of the original wound or injury. They occur when the body produces excessive collagen during the healing process. Keloids can be caused by surgical incisions, acne, burns, or even minor cuts. Besides their physical appearance, they can cause discomfort and self-consciousness. Our keloid removal treatments include laser therapy and surgical excision.

Melasma

Melasma is a common skin condition characterized by dark, irregular patches on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, and upper lip. It primarily affects women and is often associated with hormonal changes, such as pregnancy or oral contraceptive use. Sun exposure and genetics can also contribute to its development. Treatment is important to lighten the dark patches and even out skin tone.

Moles

Moles are common skin growths that appear as dark or pigmented spots on the skin. They are usually harmless but can vary in size, shape, and color. While most moles are present at birth or develop during childhood, new moles can also appear later in life. Changes in size, color, shape, or texture of moles may indicate potential skin concerns, including melanoma. Therefore, it’s important to have regular dermatological evaluations of moles.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that primarily affects the face, causing redness, visible blood vessels, and sometimes small, red bumps or pustules. The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but factors such as genetics, sun exposure, and certain triggers like spicy foods or alcohol can exacerbate the condition. Early treatment is crucial to manage symptoms and prevent flare-ups. Our treatment plans include topical medications, laser therapy, and lifestyle modifications to help patients achieve clearer, calmer skin.

Warts

Warts are viral infections of the skin caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They appear as small, rough growths on the skin and can vary in size and shape. Common types of warts include common warts, plantar warts (on the soles of the feet), and genital warts. Warts can be contagious and may cause discomfort or pain, especially when located on weight-bearing areas. Treatment is important to eliminate warts, prevent their spread, and alleviate symptoms.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks, also known as striae, are long, narrow scars that develop on the skin due to rapid stretching or shrinking of the underlying tissues. They commonly occur during pregnancy, puberty, or significant weight gain or loss. Initially, stretch marks appear as reddish or purplish streaks but eventually fade to a lighter color. While they pose no health risks, they can cause self-consciousness and affect body confidence, making treatment important.

Seborrheic Keratosis

Seborrheic keratosis is a common benign skin growth characterized by raised, wart-like lesions that vary in color, ranging from tan to dark brown or black. These growths typically appear on the face, scalp, chest, or back. The exact cause of seborrheic keratosis is unclear, but it is believed to be associated with genetics and sun exposure. While generally harmless, treatment may be desired for cosmetic reasons, discomfort, or suspicion of malignancy.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are small, benign growths that appear as soft, fleshy, and often pedunculated flaps of skin. They commonly occur in areas where the skin rubs against itself, such as the neck, armpits, and groin. Skin tags are harmless and painless but can cause irritation or cosmetic concerns. Treatment is important to remove skin tags for aesthetic purposes or if they become irritated or snagged on clothing or jewelry.
