We offer treatments to patients in Bellaire and the surrounding Houston area and are recognized nation-wide for the expert treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

 

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial redness and sometimes pimples. It can be uncomfortable, painful, and in severe cases, disfiguring. Rosacea has 4 subtypes – 3 that affect the skin and 1 that affects the eyes. Topical steroids can oftentimes aggravate the condition, and leaving it untreated will cause it to worsen over time. Bellaire Dermatology specializes in treatment for rosacea. Our experienced and highly-trained medical dermatologists can help you manage your rosacea through a personalized combination of treatments.

 

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the abnormal growth of skin cells. There are several types of skin cancer including: Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Melanoma. Melanoma is the most deadly because it can quickly metastasize to other organs. Fortunately, skin cancer is almost always curable if detected and treated early. Our doctors utilize the latest equipment and technology  such as dermatoscopy and photodynamic therapy for the treatment of skin cancer.

At Bellaire Dermatology, we treat the entire spectrum of medical dermatologic problems. From acne and eczema, to excessive sweating, to warts and skin infections, Bellaire Dermatology’s physicians confidently treat conditions in all age groups. Other conditions we treat include brown spots, moles, migraines, rashes, sagging skin, eczema, hair loss, melasma, itching, fine lines and wrinkles.  

Athlete's Foot 

Athlete’s foot is a very common skin condition that can be easily treated.  This fungal infection can grow and multiply on human skin, especially the feet. Simple cases can be treated with anti-fungal creams that relieve symptoms such as burning and itching fairly quickly. In more severe cases, antifungal pills may be prescribed. You can help prevent athlete’s foot by washing and drying your feet, avoiding tight footwear, and wearing cotton socks that wick moisture away from the feet. 

Hair Loss 

Hair loss can affect anyone and is often very stressful.  After diagnosing the underlying reason for your hair loss, BDA can discuss a multitude of treatment options to consider and reach a result that makes you comfortable. 

Hyperhidrosis-Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis is the excessive sweating of the face, hands, feet, and underarms, stemming from the production of perspiration beyond what is necessary to cool the body.  The condition can be debilitating, uncomfortable, and embarrassing, however it is easy to treat.  At BDA we have helped many patients who suffer from this condition, all of who spoke of renewed confidence and comfort in their daily lives.  There are two main treatment regimens for hyperhidrosis:   Botox®, which reduces excessive sweating, can dramatically improve quality of life, and topical agents may also be used for less severe cases.

Lichen Planus

Lichen planus is a rather common inflammatory disease that affects the skin, mouth, or both.  Lichen planus of the skin is characterized by reddish-purple, flat-topped bumps that may be very itchy. Oral lichen planus typically appears as patches of fine white lines and dots in the mouth.

Melasma

Melasma is a very common disorder that presents with irregular-shaped brown spots or patches of varying shades on both sides of the face, especially on the forehead, nose, cheeks, upper lip, chin, and other sun-exposed areas of the body.  It is capable of spreading over time, and worsens with continued sun exposure.  Melasma mostly occurs in women and can also be associated with pregnancy.  It is essential to use sunscreens and to discontinue using any products that irritate the skin.   Topical agents such as bleaching creams and minimally invasive treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser surgery may be used to successfully treat this condition.

Moles

Moles are specific pigmented spots on the skin that are usually benign, but should be checked by a dermatologist to rule out any form of cancer or precancerous growth.  Some people are born with moles, and others develop them due to sun exposure or hereditary factors.  They can be easily removed by excision.  Monthly skin exams are crucial to detect moles in their early stages that can transform to melanoma.

Perioral Dermatitis

Perioral dermatitis is a common skin problem that results in a combination of a red rash and acne around the mouth.  It affects mainly young women.  A variety of treatments can help with this often stubborn problem.

Poikiloderma

Poikiloderma refers to increased pigmentation, producing reddish-brown skin, usually on the sides and front of the neck and chest.  Sun protection is the best preventative measure for poikiloderma.  However, an intense pulsed light procedure (fotofacial) will reduce the coloration over several treatments.  The laser light source works by emitting intense, but gentle light bursts that target abnormal tissue and leave the surrounding tissue untouched.

Port Wine Stains/Vascular Birthmarks

Port wine stains are vascular lesions that appear at birth and appear as reddish marks caused by an abundance of blood vessels.  They can become larger and more apparent over time.  However, cutting edge laser treatments can be tailored to treat the dilated birthmark and not affect the surrounding skin.  Specifically, the YAG, KTP, V-Beam, or IPL lasers provide relief by penetrating deep into the skin, targeting the blood vessels, and eliminating the affected tissues.  Several laser treatments are usually required.

Pruritus

Pruritus is the medical word for itch. Itching can be a significant source of frustration and discomfort for patients. Pruritus can be a symptom of certain skin diseases, or internal conditions.  In other patients, pruritus may be due to faulty processing of the itch sensation within the nervous system.  At BDA, we are attuned to the myriad of reasons for itching and will be able to identify the cause.  Our therapeutic expertise will bring control and relief to your symptoms.  

Seborrheic Dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin disorder that can be easily treated. This condition is a red, scaly rash most commonly seen on the scalp, sides of the nose, eyebrows, eyelids, skin behind the ears, and middle of the chest. Mild topical creams or shampoos may be used to treat affected areas.

Seborrheic Keratoses

Seborrheic keratoses are non-cancerous growths that look similar to warts. Pigmented seborrheic keratoses can mimic skin cancer. The condition is extremely common, genetic in origin and easily treated.

Tinea Versicolor

Tinea Versicolor is a common skin condition that results from a proliferation of yeast on the skin’s surface. The condition presents as uneven skin color and scaling that sometimes itches.  However, it is easily treated with topical or oral medications as well as shampoos. 

Vascular Birthmarks

Vascular birthmarks are characterized by reddish marks caused by an abundance of blood vessels.  They can become larger and more apparent over time.  However, cutting edge laser treatments can be tailored to treat the dilated birthmark, not affecting the surrounding skin.  A variety of lasers provide relief by penetrating deep into the skin, targeting blood vessels, and vaporizing the affected tissues.  Several laser treatments are usually required.

Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a skin condition caused by a loss of pigment that results in symmetrical white patchy areas.  There are several ways to treat vitiligo, including topical and oral medications, as well as light therapy (narrow band UVB). 

Warts

Warts are non-cancerous skin growths caused by a viral infection in the top layer of the skin. They are generally skin-colored and feel rough, but can also be dark, flat and smooth. Warts are passed from person to person, and most commonly found on the hands and feet.  Various treatments including prescription creams, injectables, cryotheraphy, or lasers are used to eliminate them.
