Dermatologist in Summit NJ

The dictionary definition of dermatology is the branch of medicine that treats diseases of the skin, but it has since expanded; dermatologists are now the leading pioneers in many cosmetic and surgical procedures which are used to treat all types of skin conditions. Dermatologists including experienced staff members that work in our new Summit, NJ location offer medical, surgical, and cosmetic procedures to treat the skin, scalp, hair, and nails of their patients.There are hundreds of medical conditions and diseases that should be cared for by a dermatologist. They can range from serious, life-threatening diseases such as skin cancer, to more common ailments such as eczema, warts, and acne. Often, even treating minor skin conditions can result in positive effects such as significantly improve the patient’s quality of life; removal of an irritating skin problem; creating a more youthful, even-skinned appearance; and a rise in the patient’s self-confidence.

Dermatologic conditions that may be treated with surgical procedures include skin cancer, keloid scars, moles, and skin tags. These issues often have deeper roots and are difficult to treat with less invasive methods such as topical creams or lasers, but those do remain an option in some cases. Skin cancer can be life threatening, and early detection is always the best option for the most effective treatment. Treatment plans can vary widely from patient to patient depending upon a variety of factors including the severity of the condition; an experienced dermatologist at the Summit location of Advanced Dermatology P.C. will evaluate your medical skin condition and determine the most effective treatment plan during your consultation.

The doctors see patients who suffer from conditions such as port wine stains, psoriasis, rosacea, rashes, and warts on a daily basis. Though these conditions may not be life threatening, they are often a cause of great irritation, embarrassment, and discomfort for our patients. Treatment for these medical problems can vary from non-invasive, such as topical creams, to more involved procedures such as laser therapy, phototherapy, or microdermabrasion. For many patients, curing the effects of these conditions can make a big difference in terms of lifestyle and self image.
