Whether for clinical or cosmetic reasons, your dermatologist can help you achieve clearer, healthier skin. He or she can prescribe treatments for skin conditions like acne and recommend protective measures against diseases like skin cancer. Talk to your dermatologist about what you can do to protect and improve your skin, and read more in the resources below:
- While sun damage and ultraviolet radiation are among the primary causes of skin cancer, genetics could play a role in a patient’s risk for developing the disease. Read more about the influence of genetics on skin cancer with this FAQ guide.
- A skin condition that affects teens and adults, acne and its accompanying myths seem to have a special place in popular culture. Contrary to some beliefs, though, acne is not caused by chocolate or dirty skin. Find out what really triggers your breakouts with this Mayo Clinic article on acne causes.
- In addition to oral and topical medications, cosmetic treatments can help patients manage acne and eliminate whiteheads and blackheads. Ask your dermatologist about facials for acne and learn more about how they can clean clogged pores.
