Are your skin problems getting you down? Conditions like sun damage, acne scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks can leave you looking less than your best. Fortunately, you have more treatment options than ever before when it comes to minimizing skin problems due to acne, aging, or sun damage. Our Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Spurlin, is located in Birmingham and would love to walk you through how to take care of your skin or which treatment options could work for you.
Non-invasive and minimally-invasive skin treatments are extremely popular right now. Although traditional cosmetic surgery certainly offers dramatic results, most people do not require such drastic measures. Non-surgical skin treatments have the advantage of offering significant results without the need for numerous medications or a great deal of downtime. Visiting our dermatologist could be the right option for you, especially if you want to avoid surgery.
Skin Cancer Screening
Skin cancer is actually highly treatable when detected early. Left untreated, the disease can spread to internal organs and prove fatal. This is why our dermatologist recommends undergoing regular screenings for skin cancer.
You should also periodically check yourself for any unusual developments in the condition of your skin. For example, a mole that has recently changed in shape, size, or color is cause for concern. If you should spot such a mole, set up an appointment with our dermatologist in Birmingham so that we can put your mind at ease or begin early treatment if necessary.
Is your skin looking dull or tired? Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that involves a mild exfoliation or polishing of the superficial skin layer. It helps to stimulate the growth of fresh collagen to reveal new skin that appears tighter and smoother. Fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, blemishes, and age spots can be minimized, particularly when you undergo regular treatments. This is just one of the many medical spa treatments that we offer in addition to our medical dermatology services.
