Types of Skin Conditions in Atlanta & Marietta, GA
Located in Buckhead, East Cobb, Midtown, and the surrounding areas of Atlanta and Marietta, Dermatology Affiliates offers treatment for skin conditions and other medical dermatology conditions that require the assistance of a board-certified dermatologist.
All people at one time or another in their lives are afflicted with skin conditions. Some people only suffer from minor ones that are easily cured. Other patients are not so lucky, and suffer from chronic conditions that are painful and, in some cases, cause the patient to become self-conscious since their skin disorder attracts unwelcome reactions on the part of strangers, friends, and even family members.
What Are Some of the Most Common Skin Conditions Treated?
Chronic skin conditions are rarely curable, but these conditions are treatable and manageable with the right medical care and healthy lifestyle changes. The goal of Dermatology Affiliates is to assist you in your efforts to restore the appearance and health of your skin. We provide treatments for such skin conditions as:
- Allergic Skin Reactions
- Athlete’s Foot
How Are Skin Conditions Diagnosed?
Our board-certified dermatologists will typically diagnose skin conditions just by learning about your symptoms and examining your skin. If this is not enough to arrive at a precise diagnosis, we will order specific tests to help us come to an accurate conclusion. Skin tests may reveal if the condition is fungal, viral, or bacterial in nature. We may also order tests to determine whether or not a condition is a minor rash, or a benign or cancerous growth on your skin.
Treatment for Skin Conditions
Various skin conditions will call for a medical or surgical treatment. We provide a wide array of care options that range from diagnostic procedures to surgical treatment for skin, nail, and hair disorders since we are a full-service dermatology center. In some cases, skin problems are symptoms of other underlying medical conditions, and a diagnosis of these conditions will ward off more serious health problems before they can negatively affect your life in a major way. Luckily, there are so many new treatments and technologies available today that we can successfully treat most skin conditions.
Which Medical Dermatology Treatments Are Right for My Skin Condition?
A consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists is the ideal way to start treatment to relieve the symptoms of your skin conditions. While we may not yet know an exact cause for your particular skin condition, it is important to have all your concerns diagnosed in an accurate manner in order for you to obtain an effective treatment plan.
We will learn about your lifestyle, medical history, and overall health and skin condition during an initial consultation, so we can personalize a treatment plan that will offer you optimal results.
What Are the Costs for Treating Skin Conditions?
Treatment costs for any skin condition vary according to the diagnosis you receive for it. Our staff members will help you discover if your insurance covers all or part of the costs, and will be happy to discuss payment options with you.
