Acne is one of the most common skin conditions seen by medical professionals. Acne consists of pimples that can appear on the face, back and chest. About 80% of adolescents have some form of acne and about 5% of adults experience acne. In normal skin, oil glands under the skin, known as sebaceous glands, produce an oily substance called sebum.

Moles are usually round or oval growths that are usually brown or black and can appear anywhere on the skin. They can be rough or smooth, flat or raised, single or in multiples. They occur when melanocytes, which are responsible for skin pigmentation, grow in clusters instead of being spread out across the skin. Generally, moles are less than one-quarter inch in size. Typically, moles appear by the age of 20, although some may appear later on. Contact us if you see any abnormal growths.
Skin Cancer Evaluation and Treatment
Skin cancer is the most common form of human cancers, affecting more than one million Americans every year. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their lives. Skin cancers are generally curable if caught early. However, people who have had skin cancer are at a higher risk of developing a new skin cancer. Regular self-examination and doctor visits are crucial. Book your appointment today.
