Get Care for Skin Diseases, Infections, and More in Denver
Our team of board-certified dermatologists, offering medical dermatology services at the Denver-based AboutSkin Dermatology and DermSurgery, treats a wide variety of skin diseases in patients who vary in age from infants to seniors.
We use an evidence-based approach to develop a tailored treatment plan consisting of managing current symptoms and preventing future symptoms long term. We work with our patients to develop a plan that incorporates the unique preferences and needs of each person.
Medical Dermatology Conditions
Medical dermatology conditions we treat include acne, allergic contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, blistering diseases, drug rashes, eczema, genetic (inherited) disorders, hair and scalp disorders, hives, hyperhidrosis, various infections, lichen planus, lupus erythematosus, lymphoma of the skin, molluscum contagiosum, nail disorders, psoriasis, rosacea, skin cancer (including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma), STDs, and warts.
Medical Dermatology Treatments
The AboutSkin team offers the latest evidenced-based treatments for its patients. Treating each patient individually, our providers take pride in tailoring treatment plans to each patient’s individual needs, skin type, and lifestyle. AboutSkin also has a panel of in-office customized prescription medications, which are sometimes prescribed in an effort to save our patients money out of pocket, given the rising costs of prescription medications.
Our team is heavily involved in clinical research pertaining to medical dermatology, participating in numerous studies with far-reaching applications. The AboutSkin team was involved in a successful trial that focused on photodynamic therapy (PDT) for treating superficial basal cell carcinoma.
For certain cancers, another effective medical dermatology treatment is Mohs surgery, offered by Dr. Joel Cohen at our Greenwood Village office. Dr. Cohen underwent a full American College of Mohs Surgery fellowship that included extensive training and involved working with more than 500 skin cancer cases.
No matter the specific medical dermatology condition diagnosed, we work to apply the most advanced, effective, and appropriate treatment available.
Medical Dermatology Training
Part of providing you with the best care for your skin is our commitment to advanced training, which each of our physicians consistently receives. Through this continued education, we discover innovative tools—such as the dermatoscope, a diagnostic tool used by physicians to assist in the evaluation of skin lesions.
The dermatoscope is a handheld device our doctors use to get a better view of the skin than we can observe with our eyes alone. Equipped with a bright light source and polarized filters that remove glare, this microscope magnifies the skin 10 times. This magnification under light allows your doctor to see the intricate details that make up moles and other skin lesions. Even more importantly, the dermatoscope gives us a peek into the deeper layers of the skin, which cannot be viewed with the naked eye.
There is a significant benefit to the use of this advanced medical dermatology tool, which has been widely used in Europe and Australia for the past decade. Because the dermatoscope allows doctors to view a mole or lesion in greater detail, they have the improved ability to more accurately diagnose possible dangerous skin conditions, such as melanoma.
Each of our doctors has extensive training that allows him or her to meet your specific needs when it comes to your skin, the largest and most visible organ. Whether you are struggling with acne, dealing with an unwanted scar, or are concerned about a suspicious mole, we can assess and recommend the most suitable treatment to restore your skin to its most healthy state.
