Acne Treatment

Acne is a very common skin condition that affects many people during their teen years; however, the disease is not restricted to any age group. Acne may continue into or may even start in adulthood. Acne causes clogged pores (blackheads and whiteheads) and pimples on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. Although acne is caused by several factors, medical treatment can drastically improve the appearance of acne and get rid of it altogether. Even though you might think that washing frequently is good for your skin, acne is not a disease that is caused by dirt. Frequent and vigorous cleansing techniques may even worsen the condition. Dr. Wassef uses the latest techniques, medicines, and chemical peels to treat acne and its unwanted effects. Our dermatology treatments for acne are customized for each patient, and we have seen such successful results time and time again!

Eczema Treatment

Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes areas of red, itchy, and inflamed skin. Eczema usually starts in early childhood and is commonly treated by the dermatologist. Although its cause is unknown, the condition appears to be an abnormal response of the body’s immune system. Eczema is not contagious, and kids typically grow out of it. There is another variant called adult eczema which affects the adult persons. Dr. Wassef will examine and determine the best type of long-term treatment for eczema. Contact DCSI for more information on eczema treatment in South Florida.

Rashes, Moles, and Warts

Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery Institute can diagnose and treat any rash patients might have. Once our team has identified your rash, we’ll offer the treatment options we feel will work best for you. Moles can appear almost anywhere on the skin, and most are normal. However, some are bothersome and may transform into melanoma. Moles may darken, which can happen after exposure to the sun. If you see any irregularities or changes to your moles, please consult Dr. Wassef and his team. Warts are areas of skin that grows faster than normal due to a virus. They are actually an HPV infection of the skin. The body will eventually build up a resistance over time, and the cause of warts will disappear. Dr. Wassef offers multiple different treatments and removals for warts.
