Medical Dermatology-Focused LA Laser Center Services
Under the Medical Dermatology-Focused LA Laser Center Services addressed by doctors and certified dermatologists are the following skin maladies: Allergic Rash, Skin Cysts, Dandruff, Varicose Vein Treatment, Eczema, Fungal Nail Infections, Lipoma, Melasma, Molluscum Contagiosum, Skin Rash and Rosacea.
A number of these abnormalities and diseases can be treated by topical creams and prescribed ointments, or by serums with fillers. However, some of the more serious conditions, such as skin cysts, could be treated by surgical techniques within the Medical Dermatology-Focused LA Laser Center Services.
Allergic Rash is also called Allergic Dermatitis and is a skin reaction to an allergen in contact. Once in contact with an allergen like fabrics, jewelry, even shampoo and pets, red patches on the skin could appear specifically on the wrists and neck combined with dry, itchy, scaly skin. The Medical Dermatology-Focused LA Laser Center Services treatment is the removal of the allergen combined with the use of a topical cream.
If untreated, allergic dermatitis could lead to eczema or a fungal/bacterial infection and worse, could lead to psoriasis, a condition that has no cure but can be controlled or minimized. The main difference is that psoriasis is also inherited and caused by the overproduction of skin cells, not necessarily caused by an allergen or bacterial infection.
But when bacteria occurs in the pores of the skin and is clogged, acne also develops in the form of pimples, cysts, whiteheads and blackheads. The Medical Dermatology-Focused LA Laser Center Services normally use three major treatment methods such as: Photodynamic Therapy, V-Beam Laser Treatments and Fractionated Co2 Laser procedure.
Another lesser form dermatological condition in terms of risk but one that is common is dandruff. While less harmful, the treatment includes the use of anti-fungal shampoos and creams, tar shampoos or salicylic acid-based shampoos.
Melasma is a skin condition that develops dark brown patches on the skin as a result of exposure to the sun. The skin discoloration is not harmful but is common among dark-skinned people. To prevent Melasma, one has to limit skin exposure to the sun. Treatment options under Medical Dermatology-Focused LA Laser Center Services include Microdermabrasion, chemical peels or fractional laser resurfacing.
Another condition is varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is the treatment of varicose veins administered at the Medical Dermatology-Focused LA Laser Center Services facility. After injecting the vein with a specially formulated non-saline solution, the vein collapses and is then destroyed by a laser beam, a quite complex treatment procedure.
