You know you are a true Coral Gables resident when you like to spend lots of time in the sun. You’ve never really paused to consider how this might make your skin look when you got older, but lately, you have been noticing issues with your skin that never seemed to be a problem in the past. Not wanting this to affect your love of the sun and the beach, you thought perhaps that it might be time to have a dermatologist check things out to make sure you do not have any serious skin problems. You have heard that people your age are prime candidates for skin cancer—especially as many times as you have been burned by the sun.
Even though you like exposing your skin to the sun, you have always had a problem with acne popping up all over your body. You have tried nearly every over-the-counter product you can get your hands on to manage this skin condition, but after some time you threw your hands up in defeat. This has been a source of some embarrassment, but in the past you tried to ignore it. When it comes to dealing with acne more aggressively, try visiting our dermatologist. They have access to prescription medications that may do a lot more for your acne than the over-the-counter products that did not seem to adequately address this problem with your skin.
If you have spent most of your life in the sun and endured many blistering sun burns, then chances are that skin cancer could be in your future. If you notice any strange moles or growths on your skin, you should have these checked out by our dermatologist. The key to ensuring that skin cancer is treated properly is to catch it earlier, not later. Our dermatologist will want to monitor any changes in such skin issues on a reasonably regular basis to make sure there is not a problem surfacing.
There is nothing more unwanted than when you have a string of warts growing up the length of your arm or peppering your facial region. Not to worry, warts are a common problem that our dermatologist sees on a regular basis. Instead of wasting time with products that work with varying degrees of success, our dermatologist has the ability to burn and freeze warts off in a single visit.
At Integrated Dermatology of Coral Gables, we understand that seeing a dermatologist may not be as enjoyable as a day in the sun. However, we encourage you to come visit us so we help can you protect your skin as you soak up the sun’s rays. Contact us today to schedule your consultation at our office in Coral Gables.
