Medical Skin Conditions Q & A

What are medical skin conditions?

Medical skin conditions are chronic diseases that affect your skin’s health. Unlike cosmetic conditions, which primarily impact your appearance, medical skin problems can cause additional symptoms. Many of these conditions cause pain, itching, redness, and general discomfort.

At Aesthetix Skin & Surgery, your provider works with you to effectively diagnose and treat your specific skin condition.

What are the most common medical skin conditions?

Aesthetix Skin & Surgery diagnoses and treats many medical skin conditions, such as:

Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes red patches of dry or itchy skin. Many people experience small blisters and flaky skin that can lead to pain, discomfort, and infection. Eczema flare-ups are manageable with the right treatment protocol.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes red and scaly skin. These patches can appear anywhere on the body, but they typically develop on the scalp, face, and torso. Diagnosing the type of psoriasis you have can help your provider create an appropriate treatment.

Acne is an inflammatory condition that occurs when the hair follicles become clogged with oils and dead skin cells. These bumps may feel tender and swollen. There are many types of acne, and diagnosing your specific type helps your provider recommend the best treatment for you.

Skin growths
Skin growths are tissue masses that form on your skin. The most common types are moles, skin tags, cysts, and warts. While most skin growths are benign (noncancerous), they can evolve. 

Skin cancer
Skin cancer occurs when skin cells grow and evolve at a rapid rate, damaging your tissue. While skin cancer is treatable in its early stages, it can metastasize (spread) to other areas of the body without treatment.

Aesthetix Skin & Surgery is a state-of-the-art clinic with a wide range of treatments to address medical skin conditions. After an initial exam, your provider can help determine the right treatment for you.
