Skin Conditions We Treat
Acne is a common condition that often begins in adolescence, but it can also persist or even begin in adulthood, leading to significant emotional distress and self-esteem — and, in severe cases, causing permanent scarring. Our dermatologists provide personalized acne treatment plans as well as a number of solutions for acne scars.
A common skin condition characterized by redness and sensitive skin, rosacea has multiple variants, which sometimes makes it difficult to distinguish from acne. Rosacea can also flare up in response to different environments, which makes it extremely important to see an expert dermatologist for proper rosacea diagnosis and management.
Eczema and Psoriasis
Eczema is typically characterized by dry, red, and itchy skin due to skin barrier dysfunction. Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition that usually presents as red plaques covered with silvery scale. Both conditions may respond well to a topical regimen, and our dermatologists have a number of treatments available to address both eczema and psoriasis.
Mole & Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are small, fleshy protrusions commonly found in skin folds. Though harmless, they can be irritating if they catch on clothing and jewelry. Moles can be found anywhere on the skin and, while usually benign, abnormal moles can raise health concerns. Our dermatologists use proven methods to safely remove both skin tags and moles.
Brown Spots & Red Spots
Brown spots, or seborrheic keratoses, are warty, waxy brown growths that don’t appear until adulthood, and are usually harmless. Sunspots, or age spots, are oval-shaped tan or brown lesions that occur on sun-exposed skin and are very common after the age of 40. At Kingsway, we offer several treatments for these lesions, including laser resurfacing and more.
Hair loss can affect men and women of any age, and it can cause a great deal of emotional distress. There can be many underlying causes contributing to hair loss, which is why a consultation with our dermatologists is important to properly diagnose the type of hair loss. Once we pinpoint the cause, we will be able to establish a hair loss treatment plan.
Melanoma, Basal Cell Carcinoma, and Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are non-melanoma skin cancers, while malignant melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer and can be fatal. Melanoma arises from normal-appearing skin or from a pre-existing mole. Our dermatologists may use a combination of methods to address skin cancer depending on your individual case.
Actinic keratosis refers to red, scaly spots on sun-exposed skin, typically on the backs of the hands, ears, nose, cheeks, temples, upper lips, and scalp. These spots can run the risk of becoming non-melanoma skin cancer and should be addressed by a dermatologist, who will use any one of several treatments to address these keratoses.
Excessive sweating can be annoying or embarrassing, but occasionally it can indicate a more serious underlying health condition. Our dermatologists will do a full assessment to determine the cause of excess sweating and find a solution to manage the symptoms, which can include topical and oral prescriptions as well as BOTOX® treatment.
Melasma refers to blotchy, hyperpigmented patches on the face, rather than discrete brown spots. Melasma can be triggered by sun exposure, pregnancy, hormone therapy (including birth control pills), and certain medications. We offer several different treatments for melasma, including chemical peels, microneedling, and more.
