Here is some information about what to expect when you come to Linda Woodson Dermatology.
Linda Woodson Dermatology offers acne treatments to the residents of Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada. Acne is normally associated with puberty and believed to be a condition limited to teenagers. However, over the years, Dr. Woodson has successfully treated both teens and adults with severe acne cases. Acne ranges in severity from mild to severe, and each level of acne requires specialized treatment. Mild acne is typically described as having few blemishes, including whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. People with more advanced acne have a significantly higher number of blemishes, and also experience cysts.
How can acne treatment by Dr. Linda Woodson improve my appearance?
Left untreated, acne causes dark spots and scarring on your skin. Acne treatment eliminates the blemishes and cysts on your skin, while helping you maintain an even, healthy skin tone and texture.
Dr. Linda Woodson works closely with her patients in Henderson and Las Vegas, NV, to determine the best course of treatment for their acne. During your initial consultation, Dr. Woodson and her team will work with you to develop an individual treatment plan that includes the type of acne treatment for your case. Treatments may include at-home medications, or Dr. Woodson may recommend in-office procedures such as an acne peel or laser procedure.
Acne treatment takes time. At-home treatments may take four to eight weeks before your skin is clear. Other treatments, such as acne peels and laser treatments may require at least two weeks before you see the full results. If you have any questions or concerns about the healing period for acne treatment, please contact Linda Woodson Dermatology.
For those who suffer from eczema, Linda Woodson Dermatology offers several treatment options. Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a condition that causes dry, scaly patches on the skin, typically on the face, scalp and forehead. The condition affects children and adults. People with eczema experience intense itching sensations at the affected areas. Dr. Linda Woodson has treated a number of patients with eczema. While the causes of eczema have not been determined by researchers, some interesting information has emerged. Eczema typically affects people who have family histories of eczema, asthma or hay fever. Children are more likely to develop eczema if one or both of their parents have eczema or hay fever. About half of adults who have eczema develop asthma or hay fever during their lifetimes.
How can Linda Woodson Dermatology improve my appearance by treating my eczema?
Dr. Linda Woodson has worked extensively with patients in Henderson and Las Vegas to help reduce the effects of their eczema. Treatment for your eczema helps control the condition, keep it from getting worse and relieve your discomfort. While your eczema may not go away, having it under control can help you feel more confident and comfortable.
The first step is to have a proper diagnosis from Dr. Woodson. Once your eczema is diagnosed, Dr. Woodson discusses your treatment options. The goals of your treatment plan include controlling the itchiness of the condition, reducing any skin inflammation, clearing infections that may have developed, removing the scaly lesions caused by your eczema and reducing the number of newly formed lesions.
For some treatments, you may notice immediate changes. Other treatments take more time. Dr. Woodson discusses the anticipated outcomes of your treatment during your consultation appointment.
Linda Woodson Dermatology offers mole removal procedures to the residents of Henderson and Las Vegas Nevada. Most adults have moles, and those with lighter skin are more prone to develop moles. Moles are generally harmless, but some people find them to be unattractive, and they rely on Dr. Linda Woodson for safe and effective mole removal.
Should I be concerned about my moles?
While most moles are not cause for concern, you should monitor your moles for indications of melanoma. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that typically develops near moles, and one of the first signs is a change in the shape or size of your mole. New moles can also indicate melanoma. If your mole begins to grow, bleed or itch, contact Linda Woodson Dermatology for a consultation appointment. Dr. Woodson evaluates your mole and determines if treatment is necessary.
Dr. Woodson does not recommend removing your mole at home. If the mole contains skin cancer and is not properly removed, the skin cancer can continue to grow. Removing moles requires very sharp surgical blades. Without the proper technique and equipment, you may cause damage to your skin, including a permanent scar, or the area may become infected.
Dr. Woodson works closely with her patients in Henderson and Las Vegas, Nevada to determine the best mole removal procedure. In general, she uses one of three methods -- surgical excision and laser removal. For surgical excision, Dr. Woodson makes an incision around the mole to remove it from your skin. The skin is then closed with sutures. For laser removal, Dr. Woodson carefully
