While wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, they make some individuals feel uncomfortable with their appearance. When elastic and collagen fibers are injured and the skin incorrectly repairs those fibers, wrinkles occur. We have several treatment options available for individuals who want to get rid of their wrinkles.
Warts are small growths that appear most frequently on the hands and feet. Sometimes they look flat and smooth. Other times they have a dome-shaped or cauliflower-like appearance.
Skin cancer is caused by the reproduction of abnormal cells in the body and it can spread to other parts of the body. The most common cause of skin cancer is when an individual is exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Every type of skin cancer can be traced back to UV rays from the sun. It is crucial that if you see a spot on your skin that looks irregular that you call our offices to get a consultation from our experienced dermatologists.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes facial redness and/or acne-like pimples. This inflammation of the face can affect the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead or eyelids. More than 14 million Americans suffer from rosacea.
Rash is a general term for a wide variety of skin conditions. A rash refers to a change that affects the skin and usually appears as a red patch or small bumps or blisters. A rash can represent a specific skin disease or be a symptom of another health concern.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that lasts for most of an individual's life. It has the appearance of dry, flaky patches of skin that are itchy and usually cause red coloration around the skin. The severity of cases ranges from small patches of skin, to complete coverage of the body.
Moles are usually brown or black and they are growths that can appear anywhere on the skin, either alone or in clusters. There are different types of moles, some that are present at birth and some that develop over time. Moles can develop into skin cancer. Moles with potential to become cancerous are atypical dysplastic nevi. These moles have an irregular shape and different shades of colors. The more moles that an individual has, the greater the risk of developing skin cancer.
Acne is a long-term skin disease that is composed of blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. It occurs on the oiliest parts of the body including the face, upper chest area, and back. While acne can last for years it can be treated.
Cosmetic services are offered at our Sanford and Pittsboro Offices. We offer a few different treatment options to make sure you’re looking your best!
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Injectable wrinkle fillers relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. As a result, trouble spots nearly disappear. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from 4 months to more than a year. We provide Radiesse®, Belotero®, or Juvéderm® to our patients.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution causes the blood to clot and over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.
