Whether you’re struggling with acne, wrinkles, skin tags, inflammation, or any number of other skin irritations and aggravations, Parsons Dermatology & Cosmetics can help.
ACNE & SCARING
It’s common for people of all ages to struggle with acne. Acne is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles get clogged with oil or dead skin cells. Untreated, acne can lead to scarring in the form of dark spots or lesions. We have a number of treatments and topical medications to help treat acne.
Age spots are dark spots on your skin. They can range in size and commonly form on hands, face, shoulders, and arms. True age spots are harmless but can be treated cosmetically to be lightened or removed. However, all spots should be examined by a dermatologist to rule out the possibility of cancerous growth.
Also known as red moles, cherry angiomas are common skin growths that appear just about anywhere on your body. Usually found on adults 30 years or older, they generally do not pose a medical concern unless they bleed or change shape, size, or color. In that case, it’s important to speak to your doctor immediately.
A double chin is fat that is stored under your chin. They can form due to factors like weight gain, aging, or genetics.
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is commonly experienced under the arms, hands, and feet.
FACIAL VOLUME LOSS
Skin can begin to look gaunt when subdermal fat decreases, which is very common in aging. It’s a completely normal occurrence and can be reversed or mitigated in various ways.
The skin in our hands is one of the first and most readily apparent sign of aging. While we care for faces and bodies, let’s not forget about these hard-working parts of ourselves.
NECK BANDS & RINGS
The aging process causes the anterior neck muscle to tighten, causing the formation of prominent neck bands. We have a number of treatments and topical medications to reduce the appearance.
Skin elasticity increases with age, causing the skin to sag or loosen with time. There are many treatment options and topical medications available to effectively bring the “spring” back to your skin.
A seborrheic keratosis is a common benign skin growth that is usually light tan, black or brown. They have the appearance of being stuck to the skin and look waxy or scaly and slightly raised. It is common to get more as we age.
A skin tag is very common and are a small piece of soft, hanging skin. They can appear anywhere on the body, but especially where skin rubs against other skin or clothing such as under the arms or around the neck.
As skin becomes thinner with age, wrinkles begin to form easier. To slow this process down, we have a number of effective topical products. To reverse the appearance of wrinkles, we have cosmetic procedures.
