Your skin is the largest organ of your body; with a surface area of about two square yards, it makes up approximately 16% of your body weight. Your skin is made up of several different components, including water, protein, lipids, and different minerals and other organic compounds. Your skin has several crucial jobs: to protect you from bacteria and viruses which can cause infections, to regulate your body temperature, to help you sense the outside world such as temperature or climate, and to protect you from the environment.
Our dermatologist brings a unique expertise and skill set to our Shrewsbury practice, and is passionate about protecting your skin through medical dermatology. The practice has the extensive training and experience to diagnose and treat any skin disease or concern. Unlike many other dermatology practices in the Central Massachusetts area, we provide specialized treatment options for patients of every age. From acne to skin cancer, we provide the compassionate care and medical dermatology expertise necessary to perform outstanding treatments.
Conditions that irritate, clog or inflame your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, and itching. Allergies, irritants, genetic makeup, certain diseases, and immune system problems can cause many skin conditions that require treatment with medical dermatology. Skin problems that affect a patient’s appearance are also common for people of all ages. Whether you suffer from a rash, itchy skin, skin fungus, infection, skin bumps, or skin tags, there is a medical dermatology treatment available. Call today and to make an appointment to see our qualified dermatologist at Skin Dermatology in Shrewsbury; together we will learn about your particular skin concerns and discuss the best methods to treat them.
