Adult Diagnosis and Treatment Specialty Areas
Atypical moles (or nevi) are often:
- Larger than an eraser on the end of a pencil.
- Have an odd shape (not round).
- Show more than 1 color — mixes of tan, brown, red, and pink.
Atypical moles can appear anywhere on the body. They often appear on the trunk but you can also get them on your scalp, head, or neck. It’s recommended to get your moles checked yearly by a board-certified dermatologist.

- Jewelry you wore for only a few hours or days
- Latex gloves
Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common type of skin cancer. It’s also the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States.
Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. Allowed to grow, melanoma can spread quickly to other parts of the body and can become deadly. But when it’s found early, it’s highly treatable.
An AK forms when the skin is badly damaged by ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or indoor tanning. By seeing a dermatologist for checkups, the AKs can be treated before they become skin cancer.
Botulinum toxin therapy
Dermatologists use botulinum toxin therapy to diminish signs of aging.
A chemical peel can diminish many signs of aging on the face as well as the hands, neck, and chest. They can also treat some types of acne and conditions that discolor the skin.
With a number of fillers now available, dermatologists can diminish signs of aging that appear on the face, lips, and hands.
Laser Hair Removal
Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Thanks to advances in technology, most people can safely have laser hair removal.
