The different types of dermatological procedures
The most common type of cancer, skin cancer, is an abnormal growth of cells on the skin. There are several types of skin cancer and most are related to sun exposure. Dr. Gianfermi treats the three main types of skin cancer
– Basal cell carcinoma
– Squamous cell carcinoma
– And melanoma – as well as other skin cancers.
Birthmarks, angiomas, wine stains, skin pigmentation
Although rarely harmful, birthmarks, angiomas and wine stains can make you feel uncomfortable and bad about your skin.
These conditions occur when the skin is more pigmented in one area than in the rest of the skin.
Treatment may include laser therapy and topical ointments. A team of dermatologists can help you develop a personalized treatment plan for your skin pigmentation problem.
Dry skin, eczema, cradle cap
Common in children, eczema is characterized by red, dry, itchy skin.
Sometimes called atopic dermatitis, eczema typically occurs on the scalp and cheeks of infants (often called cradle cap) and in the elbow creases of children and adults.
Causes may include dry skin, genetics, and exposure to irritants.
Dry skin, eczema, and cradle cap can be treated to stop the itching and soothe the skin.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, affects about 5% of the population.
It's not just sweating during a workout or when it's hot outside.
Hyperhidrosis can be a life-changing medical condition.
Thankfully, there are several ways to treat excessive sweating.
Insect bites and stings
Many people who are stung or bitten by an insect experience mild swelling and itching. For others, an insect bite can cause a serious reaction or even death. If you experience any discomfort from an insect bite or sting, a dermatologist can help relieve the sting and prevent further skin damage.
Mycoses, infections and nail disorders
Fungi and bacteria are always present on the skin and nails. Infections occur when there is excessive growth of fungi or bacteria. Fungal infections can occur in, under or on the fingernails or toenails. A dermatologist can diagnose and treat your nail infection or fungus from the inside.
Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells.
Posoriasis can cause skin cells to build up on the surface of the skin. These cells form thick, silvery scales and red, dry, itchy, sometimes painful patches.
A dermatologist can help stop the pain and discomfort associated with psoriasis.
Skin rashes vary widely, as do their treatments.
From eczema to pityriasis rosea, rashes are usually indicated by skin that is inflamed in color and texture.
A dermatologist can help you identify the cause of your rash and determine the best treatment.
If your face has a bright red appearance with small pimple-like bumps that come and go, you are probably one of the millions of people with rosacea.
Rosacea is not always easy to diagnose and can be confused with acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problems.
Seborrheic keratosis, which often occurs as we age, is a common non-cancerous skin growth in adults.
Seborrheic keratosis usually appears as a brown, black, or lightly tanned growth on the face, chest, back, or shoulders with a raised, scaly, or waxy appearance. Although it is usually painless, seborrheic keratosis can be unsightly.
From uneven pigmentation to premature wrinkles, sun damage can really wreak havoc on your skin.
Dermatologists have the skills and know-how to treat the different forms of sun damage and help you develop a care plan to prevent further skin damage.
Skin mark, Beauty mark
These benign skin lesions are all very common.
While skin lesions, moles and bumps are rarely painful, they can make those who have them very self conscious about their appearance.
A dermatologist can treat and remove marks, moles and bumps to give you the smooth skin you are looking for.
Get a Diagnosis
Early detection of skin cancers offers better chances of cure, especially in the case of cutaneous melanomas.
In France, there is no organized screening program for skin cancers. Their early detection therefore relies either on your doctor’s initiative, or on yours if you have spotted a potentially suspicious lesion (wound that does not heal, pimple or scab that persists or evolves, brown “spot”), or a mole “different from the others”.
On average, 100,000 skin cancers are diagnosed each year.
