Dr. Rao wants all patients to have a solid understanding of medical dermatology before their first visit. There are a number of options for patients to choose from such as BOTOX® and dermal fillers, but our doctor wants patients to know what they are getting into when they arrive for their first appointment. If you are new to Rao Dermatology, there are some things we would like you to know.
Hair and Nails Are Treatable
Your first visit to the dermatologist is not just about your skin. You may have your hair and nails treated, as well. There are treatments available for fungal nail infections, hereditary hair loss, scalp lesions, chronically-ingrown nails, and a host of other problems. Accordingly, beautiful hair and nails will improve your self-confidence.
Dr. Rao Treats Internal and External Conditions
Dr. Rao takes a comprehensive look at your skin during your consultation. However, internal conditions may cause problems with your skin, hair, and nails that you were not aware of. A patient may enter the office hoping to deal with chronically dry skin, and they may discover that they have an internal medical condition that must be treated. Medical dermatology ensures that all medical avenues are explored when treating the skin.
Traditional Cosmetic Procedures Are Available
Cosmetic treatments such as BOTOX®, CoolSculpting®, and Juvederm® are also available through our medical dermatologist. Spider veins may be removed using special laser technology, and dermal fillers may be used where needed. Dr. Rao takes all these things into account when making a diagnosis, and treatment plans ensure that the patient’s health is balanced with their need for an improved appearance.
The Skin Filters the Body Completely
Any patient may have a consultation with Dr. Rao and he will take a look at the health of their skin in its entirety. Any medical conditions that Dr. Rao discovers may be tackled with basic changes in lifestyle. A new diet or exercise routine may be recommended after every procedure completed by the office staff. Medical dermatology touches every part of your life, and the practice honors the skin’s job to filter the body of toxins.
A consultation with Dr. Rao can be scheduled today at Rao Dermatology, and all patients will receive a treatment plan and complete list of recommendations for their skin, hair, nails, and overall appearance. Medical dermatology solves many more problems than just a patch of dry skin or acne. Contact us today to learn more about the many ways we can help you.
