Dermatology

AHN dermatologists have the expertise to care for rare and complex skin diseases, as well as common problems such as hair loss, acne, and rashes. Dermatologists can also help you look your best with cosmetic treatments.

Skin and hair conditions

Our dermatologists successfully treat a variety of conditions affecting the skin and hair. Your care would include a detailed evaluation, including a physical exam and questions about your health history. This information helps define the right diagnostic tests and treatments for the best possible results.

The most common conditions treated by dermatologists include:

Skin rashes

A rash is a skin irritation that causes red, itchy, or bumpy skin. A general dermatologist can help many people get relief in a few days with medicated creams. Many can also offer specialized care for severe rashes with symptoms that come and go. 

A general dermatologist treats skin rashes due to contact dermatitis as well as:

  • Psoriasis, which causes scaly rashes and dry patches
  • Eczema, which causes patches of red, inflamed skin and blistering

Acne

Acne happens when buildups of oil or bacteria block the pores of your skin. Acne causes blemishes, such as pimples and blackheads. These blemishes may occur anywhere on your body. At AHN, you have access to many care options, including the latest acne medications.

Acne related conditions treated by a dermatologist include:

  • Acne that causes large blemishes beneath the surface of your skin (cystic acne)
  • Rosacea, which may cause patches of red, inflamed skin and pimple breakouts
  • Scars from severe acne

Skin growths

A dermatologist will help you get relief from skin growths that are causing discomfort or affecting your appearance.

Types of skin growths that can be treated: 

  • Cysts, which are abnormal pockets of fluid beneath the skin’s surface
  • Moles
  • Skin tags, which are small growths that hang off the surface of your skin

Skin cancer

General dermatologists can detect and treat the earliest signs of cancer, including abnormal moles and Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. If you have a history of skin cancer or higher-than-average risk, you may be referred to a skin cancer specialist at the AHN Cancer Institute.

Hair loss

Hair problems we treat include thinning hair and hair loss. We have years of experience caring for men and women with hair problems. This experience helps our physicians pinpoint the source of the issue, which allows us to deliver excellent care.

Hair loss conditions include:

  • Hair loss due to medical problems, such as lupus
  • Hereditary hair loss
  • Round patches of hair loss (alopecia areata)
