From skin irritations to skin-care checkups, our physicians and providers offer medical services for the following:
Such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea. Treatment options include:
- Accutane™, an oral acne medication
- Houva™, a light therapy for patients with psoriasis and some types of eczema
- Levulan Kerastick for minimal to moderate actinic keratoses
Patients with skin lesions such as port wine birthmarks, angiomas or spider veins may be treated with a vascular laser. This treatment effectively removes lesions with minimal discomfort, minimal to no bruising and a quick return to routine activities.
Our experienced dermatologists and physician assistants perform full-body screenings for the early detection of skin cancers, such as melanoma, that are caused by sun exposure, irregular moles or non-healing lesions. We also teach self-examination techniques for monitoring moles and lesions.
At Carle, our fellowship trained dermatologists use Mohs surgery to treat common types of skin cancer. Mohs is a micrographic surgery that carefully removes cancer cells, minimizing the loss of healthy tissue.
