What Does Itching Skin Say About Your Health?

While certain skin conditions are just a nuisance, others can be symptoms of a more serious health problem. You might be suffering from a temporary allergic reaction, or you might need to visit a dermatologist for eczema treatment.

Watch this video to find out what itchy skin may be telling you about your health. If itchy skin occurs alongside certain other symptoms, it may be a sign that you have skin cancer.

If you have a family history of skin cancer and are concerned that you may need skin cancer testing or skin cancer treatment, come see us at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Our dermatologists have extensive experience recognizing the early warning signs of skin cancer, and developing an effective skin cancer treatment plan.

What Is a Lipoma?

A lipoma is a common skin growth that can be diagnosed and treated by a clinical dermatologist in your area. Lipomas typically develop slowly, and appear between the skin and the underlying layer of muscle. These skin growths may feel lumpy, doughy, or fatty to the touch, and will move around when pressure is placed on them. They most often develop on the neck, shoulders, back, abdomen, arms, and thighs.

Lipomas are not typically painful unless they put pressure on nearby nerves, or contain many blood vessels. They're not cancerous, but your dermatologist might recommend surgical removal of a lipoma if it is painful or growing. Lipomas can also be successfully treated via steroid injections, cosmetic surgery, or liposuction.

If you develop any sort of skin growth, whether painful or not, you should visit one of our clinical dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Our cosmetic dermatology specialists can determine if the growth is cancerous or benign, and recommend treatment or removal options.

What Causes Age Spots?

Age spots are brown, gray, or tan patches of skin that appear gradually as we age. They can appear on the face, shoulders, chest, arms, and the backs of hands. Dermatologists typically call these hyper-pigmented spots melasma, chloasma, or sun spots. Certain cosmetic dermatology treatments and products can reduce or eliminate the appearance of age spots. Chemical peels are generally the most effective treatment option.

The primary cause of age spots is an excessive production of pigmentation in the skin, known as hyper-pigmentation. Hyper-pigmentation, in turn, is caused by oxidative stress. Excessive or prolonged exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun can increase your risk of oxidative stress. Those who are the highest risk of oxidative stress are young mothers, pregnant women, and women who are taking hormonal birth control.

If you've noticed age spots on your skin, come see our experienced and talented cosmetic dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. We can use safe and effective cosmetic dermatology treatments like chemical peels to reduce or eliminate age spots.

Signs You Should See a Doctor for Your Acne

Adult acne can be an embarrassing and painful problem. Frequent or prolonged acne outbreaks increase your risk of developing acne scars, and may significantly affect your self-esteem. Here are some signs that you should visit a clinical dermatologist near you for acne laser treatments or acne scar management.

At-Home and Over-the-Counter Treatments Aren't Working

Mild to moderate acne can often be treated with over-the-counter cleansers, lotions, and creams. If you have tried using acne treatments and your acne has not cleared up after four to six weeks, you need to visit a dermatologist. A dermatologist can provide prescription medication like antibiotics, birth control pills, isotretinoin, or topical gels or creams. He may also recommend acne laser treatments for stubborn or persistent acne.

Your Acne is Affecting Your Self-Esteem

Persistent acne can quickly begin affecting your self-esteem and impacting your social and professional relationships. If you're unable to treat your acne successfully at home, you may develop anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal. If you begin skipping work, missing social events, or avoiding having your picture taken because you are so self-conscious about your acne, you should visit a medical dermatologist for treatment. A combination of acne laser treatments and prescription medication can clear up your acne in as few as eight weeks.

Your Acne is Painful or Causing Acne Scars

Cystic acne can cause painful, hard, swollen blemishes across your face. You can't treat cystic acne using at-home or over-the-counter treatments, and even when the blemishes heal, they will leave behind significant acne scars. A dermatologist can treat cystic acne and use laser treatments for acne scar management and elimination.

If you're in need of acne laser treatments or acne scar management, come see us at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Our clinical dermatologists have extensive experience in acne treatment and can find the perfect combination of medication and laser treatments to clear up your acne and eliminate or reduce acne scars. To learn more about our skin care treatments, call us today at (866) 400-3376.
