Dermatology Q & A

What are some common dermatology conditions?

Nashville Health Pro offers treatment for a wide range of skin conditions, including:

  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Skin cancer
  • Lipomas
  • Abscesses
  • Cysts
  • Suspicious lesions

If you’ve noticed changes in your skin, especially changes in moles, schedule a professional skin evaluation as soon as possible. Changes can be a sign of skin cancer, and early detection and treatment can make a big difference in the outcome. 

When should I seek medical care for skin issues?

When to seek care is a personal choice. Some skin issues are painful and can make it hard to go through the course of a normal day without significant discomfort. 

In other cases, skin conditions are more of an aesthetic concern. If your skin has changed in color or texture or has a pronounced rash or unusual appearance, you may want to come in for an evaluation and an overview of your treatment options. 

As the nation continues to adapt to COVID-19, it’s more important than ever before to take good care of your skin, as open sores or weeping rashes could present an opportunity for the COVID-19 virus to enter your body. 

What types of aesthetic treatments are available?

Dermaplaning is a popular choice and works by using a medical scalpel to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and debris. This treatment also removes the fine hairs on your face, leaving your skin as soft and smooth as possible. 

Chemical peels offer the ability to improve many issues with skin texture and tone. There are different levels of peel to address different needs, and many people benefit from a series of several peels to achieve optimal results. 

If you have acne, professional extractions can go a long way toward clearing clogged pores and preventing more advanced outbreaks. Acne treatment is often a combination of medical and aesthetic tools.  

Botox® and dermal fillers are also popular aesthetic treatments and can improve the appearance of lines, folds, and wrinkles in the skin, or add fullness to areas of your face. 

What types of medical treatment are available?

Your practitioner will perform a skin check and discuss any symptoms or changes you’ve noticed. You’ll learn about various treatment options and the pros and cons of each. 

Your customized treatment plan might include prescription medications in pill or topical form. In some cases, a course of antibiotics is needed to reduce the risk of infection. 

If there are signs of skin cancer, a biopsy may be needed to determine if cancer cells are present. The practice can remove many kinds of skin cancer lesions or refer you to a specialist if needed.
