Dermatologists and Damaged Skin: Resources for Further Reading

Last updated 3 years ago

Whether it’s acne or sun damage, genetic and environmental factors can affect the texture, tone and overall health of your skin. By visiting the dermatologist regularly, and by protecting skin with the appropriate products and treatments, patients with problem skin can learn to improve its health and appearance.

  • Different types of skin cancer will manifest different symptoms on various areas of the body. While skin cancer is commonly found on sun-exposed areas of skin, including the face, lips, neck and hands, depending on the skin cancer and your skin tone, it can also develop in other areas. Learn more about the symptoms of skin cancer with this Mayo Clinic guide.
  • If you have been diagnosed with melanoma, talk to your dermatologist about skin cancer surgery. Skin cancer surgery for melanoma is performed to remove the primary melanoma and can be done in a variety of ways. This WebMD guide to skin cancer surgery outlines the most common types of melanoma surgery.
  • Acne can be not only physically uncomfortable but also emotionally embarrassing. Talk to your doctor about how to treat your acne and read through some of these suggestions on managing acne and breakouts.
  • Microdermabrasion, or the “lunchtime facial”, can be an effective and virtually painless way to restore the appearance of youth and health to the skin. By sloughing off dead skin cells, microdermabrasion helps to stimulate the production of collagen for improved skin tone and texture.
