Dermatology Q & A

Park South Medical

What are some common dermatological conditions?

The dermatologists at Park South Medical treat all types of dermatologic problems, but some of the most common include:

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Warts (common and venereal)
  • Scars and keloids
  • Moles and skin growths
  • Damaged ear lobes
  • Hair loss

What are the different types of skin cancer?

Skin cancer develops from exposure to ultraviolet light. All types of skin cancer are curable when treated early, which means it’s important to examine your own skin for changes in moles and other skin lesions and to schedule full-body skin assessments.

The three types of skin cancer are:

Basal cell carcinoma

The most common type of skin cancer, it often looks like a flesh-colored bump or pink patch of skin.

Squamous cell carcinoma

The second most common type of skin cancer, it may begin as dry, scaly patches or look like a red bump or sore.


This is the deadliest form of skin cancer because it spreads to other areas of your body where it’s difficult to treat. Melanoma may begin as a mole or appear as a new spot that resembles a mole.

What cosmetic services are available?

At Park South Medical, you have access to diverse cosmetic procedures, including:

Wrinkle treatment

Fight the effects of aging, diminish wrinkles, and eliminate skin discolorations with:

  • Botox®: injectable to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead furrows, and neck bands
  • Juvederm®: injectable dermal fillers that treat wrinkles around your nose and mouth and add volume to cheeks and lips

Chemical peels

Chemical peels accelerate skin exfoliation, which diminishes or eliminates wrinkles, scars, and dark spots and promotes new skin growth that’s tighter and younger looking. Your overall results depend on whether your peel removes only the outer layer of skin or penetrates more deeply to exfoliate multiple layers.

Varicose veins and spider veins

Your doctor eliminates varicose and spider veins by injecting a solution that shuts down the vein and blocks blood flow. The vein fades away as the treated tissues are absorbed and removed by your body.

Laser hair removal

Lasers used for hair removal operate on a wavelength that targets pigments in hair follicles. As the follicles absorb laser energy, they’re heated to the point of destruction so they stop growing hair.

Whether you need dermatological care or you’d like a cosmetic procedure, don’t hesitate to call or book an appointment online.
