Dr. Rogers and her team can detect skin cancer before it becomes serious and use various treatments to restore your skin to its natural beauty.
Numerous factors contribute to skin problems. Examples include genetics, viruses, funguses, immune system abnormalities, allergic reactions, and hormone imbalances.
You can’t always prevent skin conditions from occurring but you can lower your risk by eating healthy foods, avoiding known allergens, maintaining low stress levels, keeping your skin hydrated, and maintaining a healthy weight.
When you arrive at Rogers Medical for an appointment, Dr. Rogers reviews your medical history and examines your skin. She may utilize skin prick tests to determine if you have allergies that contribute to hives or other allergic reactions, or use a skin biopsy to diagnose your condition and establish the best treatment.
Dr. Rogers might recommend one or more of the following treatments for a dermatology-related condition:
Using oral or topical medications can relieve symptoms related to acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, ringworm, and more.
Avoiding your allergens, such as certain foods or latex, is a good way to prevent hives and other skin irritation caused by substances you’re allergic to.
In the case of suspicious-looking moles or unsightly warts, Dr. Rogers can numb your skin and remove the lesion. She stitches up the area if necessary so it can heal properly and may send the excised tissue to a lab to determine if it’s cancerous.
If you have psoriasis or rosacea, Dr. Rogers might recommend laser or other light-based therapies to reduce symptoms and help you achieve clear skin.
Using quality skin care products helps prevent or reduce the severity of breakouts, dry skin, and other skin conditions. The Rogers Medical team recommends skin care products that best suit your needs based on your skin type and overall health.
