Having healthy skin is important. It protects you from bacteria, dirt and other foreign objects and the ultraviolet rays of the sun. It lets you know if something is hot or cold, soft or hard, sharp or dull and assists in regulating your fluids and body temperature. Healthy-looking skin can boost your self-confidence, and regular exams reduce your risk of cancer and other skin conditions.

Skin Problems Q & A

What is Dermatology?

Dermatology is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders. Patients seeking dermatology services will typically be interested in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of various skin conditions.

Why might I need dermatology services?

At Daily Apple Clinic we specialize in skin care services such as rashes, lesions, warts, moles, concerning bumps, cysts and infections, hair loss, and removing suspicious-looking growths to reduce your risk of skin cancer. You might need dermatology care if you experience the following skin conditions:

  • Rashes

  • Warts

  • Moles

  • Skin tags

  • Fine lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Scrapes

  • Cuts 

  • Burns

  • Ingrown toenails

If you have a mole or suspicious-looking skin changes, please consider visiting the Daily Apple Clinic team as soon as possible for an evaluation, as this may be a sign of skin cancer. 

Which dermatology services are available?

Some of the many dermatology services available at Daily Apple Clinic include:

  • Skin checks: Undergoing periodic skin checks is an excellent way to detect and treat skin cancer before it becomes serious and when it can still be treated effectively. During a skin cancer screening, your provider examines every part of your body, including your chest, face, arms, back, and legs, as well as your scalp, between your toes, behind your ears, and the bottoms of your feet.

  • Biopsies: A skin biopsy is a procedure to remove cells or skin samples from your body for laboratory examination. A doctor uses a skin biopsy to diagnose skin conditions and remove abnormal tissue. If you notice abnormal-looking tissue, your provider may recommend a tissue biopsy for lab analysis by a pathologist.

  • Cryosurgery: Cryosurgery is a surgery using the local application of intense cold to destroy unwanted tissue. In our clinics, this is done using liquid nitrogen in a special container designed to apply aerosolized liquid directly to the tissue with special tips that control the amount and direction of the liquid nitrogen. We use it to treat many skin conditions (including warts and skin tags). 

  • Wart and mole removal: Your Daily Apple Clinic provider can remove warts, moles, skin tags, and other tissue abnormalities to reduce irritation, bleeding, infection, cancer risk and improve the appearance of your skin. We may do this using cryosurgery or excision using a local anesthetic.

  • Wound care: Your provider can treat scrapes, cuts, burns, and ingrown toenails to speed up healing, reduce the risk of infection, and alleviate pain. We can provide antibiotic medications, bandages, suture wounds and other minor surgical procedures.

  • Botox®: If you develop wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging, Daily Apple Clinic specialists offer Botox injections to give your skin a smoother, younger-looking appearance.
