Despite being our body’s largest organ, skincare is often overlooked. We take care of our faces, and our hands, but the other almost 20 square feet of skin are often forgotten. St. Lawrence health's dermatologists provide general services for the people of Northern New York.
Our dermatologists provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for dermatological diseases and conditions, and provide preventive screenings and care for chronic skin conditions.
Our dermatology services include:
Many diseases and conditions may first manifest in the appearance of the skin - its color, texture, or integrity may change due to underlying changes taking place in your body’s cells.
Because your skin is exposed to the elements and the environment, it is uniquely vulnerable to burns, cysts, growths, infections, injuries, and rashes. Our board-certified dermatologists and advanced practice providers will diagnose disorders that affect your hair, nails, and skin following a full body examination. They will also take your overall health history, taking both your preferences and skin into account before making any treatment suggestions.
When preparing for a visit with one of our dermatologists, please make note of any previous treatments and/or skin cancers you have had.
