Dermatologists diagnose and treat a variety of conditions or diseases involving your skin, hair, and nails. These include eczema, acne, psoriasis, skin cancer, nail infections, and scalp conditions. Dermatologists often help older men and women address the signs of aging, including age spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Dr. Zheng and the other family medicine physicians are skilled and qualified to provide general dermatology service, including:
Symptom relief from rashes and skin conditions
Correction of hyperpigmentation
They do not treat skin cancer, but they can refer you to a specialist if necessary.
What is Hyperpigmentation?
Typically a harmless condition, hyperpigmentation is when patches of your skin become darker than the surrounding area. Hyperpigmentation occurs when too much melanin (a brown skin pigment) collects in one spot. This condition can affect any race and any skin color.
Hyperpigmentation may occur as a result of acne scarring, sun exposure, freckles, and age spots. You can sometimes prevent hyperpigmentation from getting worse by wearing sunscreen. Prescription creams that lighten the skin may also be helpful to treat minor cases of hyperpigmentation.
For areas of skin with more severe discoloration, Dr. Zheng may prescribe bleaching creams or cortisone creams that even out your skin tone over the course of several months. Additionally, some laser treatments are effective at correcting hyperpigmentation.
How Do I Get Rid of Warts?
Although warts are often not a cause for alarm, they can be embarrassing or even painful. When you’re exposed to the human papillomavirus (HPV), you may see a wart develop on the surface of your skin. Warts are common on your hands and legs and are highly contagious.
If you have warts, Dr. Zheng and the experienced medical team at Weibo Medical Care can remove them or prescribe a treatment option that may include:
Applying a chemical to your wart so it blisters and dies
Cryotherapy (freezing the wart)
Electrosurgery (burning the wart)
Curettage (scraping the wart off your skin)
Excision (cutting out the wart)
If you have warts, rashes, eczema, hyperpigmentation, or other skin conditions, it’s a good idea to make an appointment with Dr. Zheng so he can examine your skin and accurately diagnose the cause. Then he can customize a treatment plan that’s best for you, and get the results you desire.
