At CK Derm, we like to make rash decisions, and do so quickly and efficiently. By specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of skin rashes, we can help get your skin back to healthy. While skin rashes can be challenging, we have the expertise needed to evaluate and care for your particular issue
A routine skin check is one of the easiest and most effective early skin cancer detection methods, providing CK Derm dermatology providers the opportunity to discuss any concerning skin issues.
You may not have thought about it previously but the health of your hair and nails is directly related to your skin. At CK Derm, we know hair and nails, and can help you achieve better health in both.
Bacterial & Fungal
Skin offers resistance to infection by bacteria and fungi, but sometimes infections do occur. As with all things in dermatology, the key to overcoming the infections that do occur is customized treatment based on accurate diagnosis.
Skin Cancer Detection and Treatment
The word “cancer” is scary. Luckily, diagnosis and treatment of skin care can remove the scary part and return you to skin health. At CK Derm, we have the expertise to diagnose and treat your skin cancer right in our office.
All biopsies are carefully examined to allow for more careful and informed treatment suggestions. If skin cancer is detected, CK Derm offers the latest techniques for its management. Our sister office in Redding, California has helped pioneer breakthrough approaches for skin cancer management that are emulated elsewhere. In our office, our focus is always on curing skin cancer with as little cosmetic impact as possible.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer.
We conduct a skin exam to check for skin cancer using both our surgical and medical dermatology skills to maximize the likelihood of a cure while minimizing the risk of adverse effects from treatment. Because every patient is different as is every cancer, we work to customize your treatment based on you.
CK Derm offers skin cancer treatments ranging from simple destruction to topical chemotherapy to excisional surgery. We are well equipped to help patients sort through their options, make a well-considered choice, and then deliver the selected treatment in an efficient fashion.
Sun Damage Protection
Fact: Sun exposure damages skin. This damage eventually leads to premature sagging, wrinkling, dulling, freckling, and increased roughness. It can also lead to skin cancer. Sun exposure also slowly thins both epidermis and dermis. Skin thinning causes more frequent visible bruising as well as increased susceptibility to lacerations, and cuts and tears from minor trauma. Fair-skinned individuals are particularly prone to decreased skin appearance and functional integrity with sun exposure. Skin tags, pre-cancers, and even skin cancer are all directly and proportionally tied to cumulative sun exposure over the course of one’s life.
