General dermatology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders in patients of all ages. These conditions can be common, like acne, age spots, and moles, or they may be more complex, such as folliculitis, epidermal nevus, and more. Located in Fayetteville, New York, Dermatology Associates is committed to providing comprehensive general dermatology care for each patient who walks through our doors.
Our Diagnosis Process
With the incidence of skin conditions continuing to rise, our team is equipped with the expertise and state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat a wide variety of diseases. We first examine our patients’ symptoms, with some of the most common including:
- Red or white raised bumps
- Painful or itchy rash
- Scaly, rough, or peeling skin
- Open sores, lesions, or ulcers
- Change in mole color or size
- Excessive flushing
After analyzing your symptoms, our general dermatology team can then investigate the underlying cause of your skin condition. There are many potential sources of skin problems, including trapped bacteria in your pores, fungi, viruses, a weakened immune system, and even genetic factors. But no matter what the cause of your condition is, you can count on Dermatology Associates to help get your skin’s health back on track.
Treatments and Procedures
To help your skin heal and alleviate any discomfort, our highly-trained medical staff members will create a personalized treatment plan for your unique condition. This plan may include any combination of oral and topical medications, light and laser therapy, and other nonsurgical methods.
If your condition warrants it, our general dermatology team may recommend that you undergo one or more surgical procedures as treatment. These might include Mohs micrographic surgery, excisional surgery, or another method. Regardless of your treatment type, our caring team will discuss your options with you at length, consider your wishes, and ensure that you are fully informed every step of the way.
Not only will our care team treat skin issues that already exist, but we can also provide preventative care to promote your skin’s health and catch any potential problems as early as possible. We offer several services for patients to take advantage of, including:
- Mole mapping
- Full-body skin exams
- Light therapy
- Patch tests
- Education and advice for patients with chronic skin conditions
If you have any concerns or come from a family with a history of skin conditions, be sure to receive regular preventative care at Dermatology Associates so you can remain happy and healthy.
