Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. According the American Academy of Dermatology, research estimates that non-melanoma skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, affects more than 3 million Americans a year.

Thankfully, when detected early, these non-melanoma skin cancers are highly treatable, which is why we recommend that patients come in at least once a year for an annual skin check. This should be more frequent for those with fairer skin types and individuals who spend a lot of time in the sun. For those with non-melanoma skin cancer, Dr. Bair performs Mohs Micrographic Surgery, a highly effective, minimally invasive procedure that removes the worrisome tissue while leaving as much of the healthy skin intact as possible (in order to minimize scarring). 

Melanoma is a much deadlier form of skin cancer that develops when melanocytes (the cells that give the skin its tan or brown color) start to grow out of control. While anyone can develop melanoma, it is much more common in white Americans, with the risk steadily increasing with age.

Solutions to Address Your

Acne

Acne can be an incredibly frustrating skin condition that affects teens and adults alike. It occurs when sebum and dead skin cells plug hair follicles. In addition, bacteria can cause inflammation, and even infection, resulting in more severe acne. 

Not to worry! Dr. Bair and the team at Luna Dermatology are experts at treating acne for clearer, healthier skin. The key is diagnosing the underlying cause and then developing a targeted treatment regimen.  

No matter your age or the cause of your acne, we have a comprehensive set of tools to work on your behalf. Whether it involves giving you at-home remedies and prescription strength medications, or in-office treatments such as cleansing facials or targeted-steroid injections to reduce inflammation, we’ll have you on your way to clearer skin in no time.

Gain Clarity with

Allergy Testing

With the myriad of cosmetics, fragrances, sunscreens and soaps these days, the list of ingredients to keep track of can be overwhelming. From common additives such as parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and propylene glycol, to more surprising ones such as formaldehyde and thimerosal, many can act as skin irritants. Heck, even popular, natural ingredients such as tea tree oil can inflame some people’s skin! Ultimately, the resulting allergic reaction, known as “contact dermatitis,” is common among patients of all ages, and typically presents as a red, itchy rash or drier, more sensitive skin.

Each person is unique, so having a better understanding of what specific allergens and irritants your body reacts to is the first step toward healthier more comfortable skin.

At Luna Dermatology, we offer fast and reliable skin allergy testing to provide you the information you need to choose the best products for your skin, while avoiding those that may cause an allergic reaction. The analysis involves a process called “patch testing” which applies a small grid of over 30 potential allergens in order to determine which your body has a sensitivity. Many of our patients are surprised to learn that they are not in fact allergic to ingredients they have been avoiding, but they are sensitive to other ingredients they considered safe (or which they had never heard of).

If you have recently experienced red, itchy skin, or have a history of skin irritation after using certain products, we encourage you visit us to have an allergy test performed. It is quick, easy, and will often help you get to the root cause of your skin discomfort.

Product Recommendations

Treat Your

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a common yet often extremely frustrating condition that affects an estimated three million Americans every year. The itchy, scaly rash that typically presents is thought to be an immune response triggered by anything from infection to stress to cold weather. Moreover, the condition tends to be chronic, meaning that it often lasts for many years or even be lifelong.

While there is no cure for psoriasis, with proper dermatologic guidance, there are medical solutions to address the symptoms and heal your skin. Dr. Bair will assess the severity and location of your psoriasis and create a custom treatment plan tailored to your needs. In addition, she will help you find ways to better manage your psoriasis through simple lifestyle changes and daily habits that can minimize flare ups.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, we strongly recommend that you see a board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Bair in order to treat your psoriasis: patches of red skin, thick and silvery scales, or dry and cracked skin that may bleed or itch. There may not be a cure for psoriasis, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer, and the team at Luna Dermatology can help.
