- Acne Scars
After acne has occurred, patients may experience acne scarring. Even after the condition has been treated, these “craters” and depressions in the skin can be unsightly. These deep, permanent scars can be addressed with a number of different treatments, including surgical and non-surgical methods. Patients who visit Dr. Sidhu of Foothill Dermatology Medical Center may learn about the various techniques used to treat active acne blemishes, and reduce and refine acne scars on the face. Below are just a few treatments used to address acne scars.
Using a special device that helps in removing the upper layer of the skin, the skin begins to heal. Before treatment, patients may be made comfortable with anesthetics or topical treatments that can “freeze” the skin.
- Fractional Resurfacing
Using a special laser treatment, patients can undergo fractional resurfacing. This helps in rejuvenating the skin by removing the damaged, old skin cells while also stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. This increases collagen production, which can replace these cells with fresh, youthful skin. Patients will experience significant results in both texture and tone of their skin after fractional laser resurfacing.
- Hair Loss
Hair loss, also known as alopecia, can occur due to genetics, stress, medications, or a variety of other triggers. At Foothill Dermatology Medical Center, we can help patients determine the problem resulting in hair loss and find a solution to restore and rejuvenate thinning or lost hair.
- Cosmetic Mole Removal
Some patients visit our practice to remove an unsightly mole from their skin. After the mole is biopsied to check for cancerous tissues, it can be removed in a number of different ways, including basic excision.
