Never underestimate the importance of excellent skin care. Your skin is your largest organ, and it is your first line of defense against environmental hazards. It is exposed to caustic substances, harmful UV rays, and minor injuries on a regular basis. Just as you need to visit your general physician and your dentist for regular checkups, it is advisable to see your dermatologist regularly. Dr. Peterson Pierre is committed to keeping your skin healthy and beautiful for life.
Perhaps the most important reason to schedule a visit is your annual cancer screening. Awareness of your own skin and regular self-checks are important. However, this does not take the place of a professional evaluation. A trained eye can spot suspicions lesions that you may never notice. This simple procedure can be lifesaving.
In addition to your annual appointment, it is advisable to see your dermatologist if you develop a sudden rash, or uncontrollable flare-up of an existing condition. Many skin problems, such as psoriasis and rosacea, can be controlled but not permanently cured. Once the condition is under control, Dr. Pierre can advise you about routine skin care, and preventing flare-ups. However, there may be times when triggers, such as stress, are unavoidable. Prompt care will help minimize your discomfort, and stop the problem before damage occurs. This is particularly important in the case of acne, because an untreated, severe breakout can result in lifelong scarring.
Time, sun exposure, lack of regular care, injuries, and a variety of other factors can leave their mark on your skin. If you are unhappy with your skin, your dermatologist can help. Fortunately, amazing advances in modern medicine have provided a plethora of products and technologies for every situation. Whether you are bothered by noticeable blemishes and scars, sagging skin, discoloration, or virtually any other skin concern – there is a beautiful solution!
Injectables, such as Botox and dermal fillers, are best known as anti-aging solutions; however, they have other uses. Fillers are also used for lip augmentation and scar revision, and a medical Botox formula can relieve excessive sweating. Topical treatments, such as facials and chemical peels can be used for treating skin conditions, removing blemishes, improving skin texture, erasing sun damage, and more. Stronger procedures are used correctively, and milder ones keep skin healthy and radiant. Other cosmetic procedures available include laser hair removal, and eyelash and eyebrow tinting.
