Let us help you achieve glowing, radiant and healthy-looking skin.
There is nothing more beautiful than gorgeous skin. It’s the largest organ of our body, and also the most noticeable. Our Panama City, FL, dermatologists Dr. Robert Siragusa, Dr. Charles Kovaleski and Dr. Bret Johnson want you to be comfortable in your own skin, which is why they provide an array of services to nip skin problems in the bud:
While there are certainly some lifestyle changes we can recommend for reducing acne outbreaks, in many cases people have tried a lot of different over-the-counter treatments and cleansers without getting the relief they had hoped for. If this sounds like you then our Panama City skin doctors may have some answers. Through medications like antibiotics, retinoids, oral contraceptive (for hormonal acne) or isotretinoin we can tackle everything from mild to severe acne problems. It may take some time to find the treatment that is right for you, but we are dedicated to getting you clearer skin.
PUVA is a UV treatment that may be a good course of action if you have severe dermatitis or a case that is more difficult to treat. Medication is taken a few hours before standing inside the UVA booth. Treatment sessions often occur a couple times a week. Over time, the amount of light that we use to treat your dermatitis will increase.
We are thrilled to be able to offer the Xtrac laser treatment to treat mild-to-moderate forms of psoriasis. If topical treatments haven’t provided you with the results you’ve been hoping for then this laser therapy could. The laser is directed over individual plaques and the procedure only lasts up to 20 minutes. Plus, it’s non-invasive and completely painless.
If years of basking in the sun have taken its toll then our photodynamic therapy system may be a great way to treat the earliest signs of skin cancer, also known as Actinic Keratosis. First, a special topical treatment is placed over the areas. By applying a photosensitizer over the skin and then directing the light source over the area, the light can effectively kill off these damaged skin cells. This procedure can be performed just about anywhere on the body.
Whether you have skin imperfections or just want to give your skin a little cosmetic enhancement, the experts at Dermatology Associates Skin & Cancer Center in Panama City, FL, are here to help.
