What is dermatology?

Dermatology is the diagnosis and treatment of conditions relating to the skin, hair, and nails. Healthy skin is beautiful skin. Our Webster dermatologist is a member of The American Academy of Dermatology, and recommends that you have a skin exam once per year. Routine exams can detect potentially life threatening and disfiguring skin cancers and other conditions.

The Melasma 411
Summer is a great time to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. However, the increased sun exposure can aggravate Melasma.
Melasma is a condition that causes the appearance of dark spots on the skin, particularly the face.
While the condition does not cause pain many people dislike the appearance of these patchy spots.
Check out these tips from The Dermatology Clinic at CLS for managing Melasma in the summer.
 
1. Choose gentle skincare products that do not irritate the skin.
2. Use sunscreen vigilantly with an SPF of at least 30. Apply it every day, not only when you anticipate being out in the sun.
3. Consider extra sun protection,sunscreen alone may not offer sufficient protection.
– Stay in the shade as much as possible when outside.
– Wear a wide-brimmed hat and other protective clothing.
