What Can I Expect from My Dermatology Appointment?
Your dermatology appointment at Brickell Cosmetic Center will largely depend on why you are visiting Dr. Dozier. Brickell Cosmetic Center is equipped to diagnose and treat a number of issues. Some of the most common reasons Miami, FL men and women visit our office are:
- Rosacea: Rosacea is a skin condition that causes the skin to appear red and most commonly occurs on the nose and cheeks. While it can be embarrassing, there are a lot of treatment options available, such as medication, creams, lotions, laser treatments, and more.
- Melasma: Melasma is the appearance of irregular dark patches of skin on the face or forearms. These patches of skin are often brown and occur symmetrically over areas, like the eyebrows, cheeks, nose, and upper lip. Often caused by sun damage or hormonal changes, there are several treatment options, like topical creams and lotions, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser treatments, and more.
- Warts: Warts are often found on the fingers, hands, feet, and around the nails. While there are a variety of causes, warts can often be frozen off or removed with a chemical treatment. In some cases, scraping or cutting off the wart, as well as laser treatments or chemical peels, could also help.
- Acne: Acne affects many people and is often caused by a combination of bacteria, clogged pores, and dead skin cells. There are a variety of over-the-counter medications and at-home care products to reduce acne; however, sometimes something stronger is needed, like prescription medications or topical creams, laser treatments, chemical peels, and more.
- Rash: "Rash" is a general term that could include hives, heat rash, athlete's foot, dermatitis, and more. Just as there's not just one cause of rashes, there are a variety of solutions. Oftentimes, an antifungal, antibacterial, or topical cream can be used to treat your rash.
- Nail Disorder: Nail disorders can be caused by fungal or bacterial infections, viruses, liver disease, lung cancer, and more. While treatment is based on the root cause, antibiotics, antifungals, and anti-inflammation creams are all known to help reduce nail disorders.
