Acne

According to the America Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin problem in the United States. Over 17 million Americans have acne, which could consist of blackheads, whiteheads, papules, cysts, pimples (aka pustules) and nodules. Acne most commonly appears on the face, neck, shoulders, back and chest.

Tayani Institute has a number of treatment options if you are suffering from the physical disfigurement and emotional distress of acne: topical medications, oral antibiotics, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments. He can treat your acne scars with chemical peelssoft tissue fillers, laser treatments or pulsed light treatments.

Mole Mapping

Most moles and birthmarks are benign, but any changes in their appearance may be cause for concern. Mole mapping is a tool to help our doctors identify any subtle changes in your moles, which could indicate early signs of skin cancer.

Eczema

Eczema is a group of skin conditions categorized by chronic, itchy rashes. Fifteen million Americans suffer from eczema, which can be triggered by excessive heat, sweating, soaps, detergents, juices, dust mites and a variety of other external agents. Our doctors may treat eczema outbreaks with moisturizing lotions, cold compresses or over-the-counter anti-inflammatory corticosteroid creams before selecting a more intensive treatment option such as prescription corticosteroids, antibiotics, sedative antihistamines or heavier drugs.

Annual Skin Checks

It is very difficult for a non-medical professional to identify skin cancer, but early detection is key. When caught in its early stages, skin cancer is usually more easily treated. It’s vital to schedule annual skin checks to quickly identify problem areas and, if necessary, start treatment.

Nail Concerns

Thin, brittle nails are not uncommon and affect more women than men. They are usually caused by genetics, aging or a condition such as nail psoriasis or nail fungus. In rare cases, brittle nails may indicate that you have an underlying health issue. Treatment of brittle nails may involve the following:

  • Ruling out any medical condition that may be contributing to the condition
  • Protecting your nails from harsh environmental factors such as chemicals
  • Strengthening your nails by using thick hand creams or petroleum jelly
  • Anti-fungal medications to clear nail fungus

Hair Issues

Millions of Americans lose their hair, for a variety of reasons, including illness, diet, hormonal changes and even personal hair care habits like heat-styling. Dr. John Martinez can recommend several possible hair restoration treatment options:

  • Topical, non-prescription medicine
  • Prescription medication (e.g., corticosteroids)
  • Hair transplant
  • Scalp flap procedures
