What's a Dermatologist?

A dermatologist is a physician with specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, hair, and nails.

When to See a Dermatologist

Your primary care provider can treat many skin, hair, and nail conditions. Talk to your doctor if you notice:

  • Dark discolorations on your skin
  • Moles that change color or shape
  • Severe acne
  • Severe scars
  • Skin rashes, redness, itching, or hives

If you have severe or chronic symptoms, you may be referred to a dermatologist.

Care for Severe Acne

If you have severe acne, or scars caused by acne, work with your dermatologist to find a solution that works best for your skin. Your doctor may recommend:

Cosmetic Skin Care

Rejuvenate and enhance your appearance with Essentia’s skin renewal services.

  • Over-the-counter products
  • Prescription medications, such as Accutane
  • Photofacials
  • Laser skin resurfacing

Rely on your dermatologist to monitor the progress of your acne healing. For some treatments, such as Accutane, you may need regular check-ins and blood tests.

Detect Skin Cancer Early

Skin cancer is easiest to treat when it’s caught early. Check your skin every month for warning signs of skin cancer, such as:

  • Skin growth that increases in size
  • Mole, birthmark, or spot that changes color, size or texture
  • Spot or sore that itches, hurts, crusts, scabs or bleeds
  • Open sore that doesn’t heal within three weeks

If you notice any warning signs, see a dermatologist for a professional skin exam.

Skin Cancer Surgery

Essentia has dermatologists who are experienced in performing Mohs surgery. Mohs surgery is often the most effective treatment for the two most common types of skin cancer—basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

During this procedure, tissue is carefully removed in thin layers until only healthy cells remain. This helps save as much healthy skin as possible, and may prevent the need for additional treatments. Most people need only local anesthesia and can go home right after the procedure.
