With over two decades of experience and all of her extensive post-graduate education, Dr. Skellchock, MD, FAAD, PA is the embodiment of an outstanding dermatologist. Diagnosing moles and pigmented lesions is aided by her experience using dermoscopy. As an integrative physician, her method is to determine the cause of the problem rather than just treating symptoms.
Acne can cause permanent scarring and emotional distress. Patients can often improve mild acne by using a topical over-the-counter acne medication along with medical-grade facials. In addition to cleansing with the Clarisonic, topical antibiotics and retinoids will often control mild acne. Inflammatory acne may require a course of oral antibiotics in addition to topical treatments. The ISOLAZ is quite successful at treating surface acne and preventing inflammatory lesions.
The most common treatment of eczema is topical steroids and avoidance of triggers. Dr. Skellchock, MD, FAAD, PA wrote the chapter on atopic dermatitis in the Textbook of Integrative Medicine and uses every treatment possible to clear and prevent further outbreaks.
Dr. Skellchock, MD, FAAD, PA believes that rosacea is caused by chronic sun damage in patients who have skin that is prone to inflammation. Dr. Skellchock has a special interest in this condition as she suffered from rosacea in her 30’s, and has completely cured it with topical treatments and photo facials.
