Dermatology is the area of medicine treating disorders of the skin, hair, and nails. A dermatologist diagnoses and treats these disorders with prescription medications, minor surgeries, and certain therapies, such as blue light therapy.
Affinity’s Dermatology Physicians assist patients with:
Your skin is your body’s largest organ - and one of the most complex. At your first appointment, your dermatologist will speak to you about your skincare habits as well as performing a basic examination of your skin. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss your history as well as any current concerns you have about your skin.
Next steps may include a biopsy or taking prescription medication. Always follow your dermatologist’s instructions for your next steps and schedule a follow-up appointment to review your treatment and adjust if needed.
The Affinity Dermatology Clinic has easy access to an in-house pharmacy and lab to make your visit as smooth as possible.
