More about General Dermatology
Skin is the largest organ our bodies have, and how we live our lives plays a large impact on its appearance. Whether you have acne, eczema, sun damage, scars, or melasma, an experienced dermatologist has the knowledge and solutions to help you and your unique skin issue.
One of the most common skin conditions in the U.S. is acne, which affects an estimated 17 million people in our country alone. Acne occurs when pores are clogged on a person’s face, chest, back, neck, or upper arms. While acne is not a life threatening problem, it can cause low self-esteem by making one feel self-conscious about their appearance. It can also cause scarring if it is severe enough, further damaging confidence. Dr. Peter Malouf is highly trained in the practice of laser dermatology, which uses lasers or other light devices to remove excess oil and dead skin cells, thus helping unclog the pores. Patients usually show improvement after just a few sessions, but progress is often dependent on the severity of the acne. After a consultation is complete, it can be determined if this treatment may work for you better than conventional acne treatments that involve washes and creams.
