General dermatology services offered through Brooklyn, NY area practice
Your skin is the largest organ of the body – and the one that is the most visible. When problems arise, it is important for patients to see a dermatologist for general dermatology services such as those offered at our practice in Brooklyn, NY. The team at the Art of Natural Beauty Center by Khrom Aesthetics is here to assist patients in the community with their skin care needs.
What is general dermatology?
General dermatology is a specific area of dermatological care that works on medical concerns that can develop on the skin and body. Other dermatology services, such as cosmetic dermatology, focus on the appearance of the skin and body. With medical dermatology, patients should seek the help of a board-certified dermatologist who is committed to helping patients with their specific needs. These needs may include the treatment of a variety of conditions such as:
- Skin cancer
All these conditions can be diagnosed and treated here at the Art of Natural Beauty Center by Khrom Aesthetics. We welcome you and your family to visit our practice and discuss the treatment of skin concerns with different techniques and services.
What treatments might be offered for these conditions?
The treatment for a specific condition will vary based on the condition and the goals of the patient. For example, patients who visit the practice with issues such as acne will come into the office for their first evaluation and consultation appointment. Our board-certified dermatologist will examine the skin and determine which type of acne is present. There are various kinds of acne and different severities, which may require different types of treatment. Additionally, every patient is unique, as is their skin, which means that the skin may react in different ways. For conditions such as acne, sometimes there is a period of trial and error to find the right treatment. It may include a combination of services and topical creams, even oral medication, that can be used to treat the acne from the inside of the body outward. Internal treatment combined with external treatment can sometimes bring about the best results. By working with our dermatologist, patients will find that they are able to get a solution to their problem and find ways to maintain their skin. Services such as lasers, facials, etc. may be used to achieve results.

What about skin cancer?
Skin cancer is caused by cancerous cells that often result in the development of skin growths or even changes to existing moles. The diagnosis is achieved by taking a biopsy of the skin growth to have it evaluated for cancerous cells. This is done at an external laboratory. Once cancer is confirmed, treatment is discussed. In most situations, the best course of action is excision. Excision removes the cancerous cells from the body. Patients who have been diagnosed with skin cancer in the past are urged to visit the dermatologist on a regular basis for skin cancer screenings. This is an appointment during which the dermatologist will evaluate the skin from head to toe to look for signs of skin cancer. Everyone should schedule an annual screening to stay on top of their health and catch problems such as skin cancer before they advance.
How can I care for my skin?
Many patients want to know how to care for their skin every day. Our professionals provide services that can help patients in building a skin care routine that works well for them. Patients with certain conditions can work in topicals and other prescription products that can keep the skin clear and beautiful. We provide services for overall skin improvement at our practice.
