Choosing the Right Dermatologist in Columbia

Columbia residents have many of the same skin complaints as other people throughout the country. Wrinkles, sun damage, sagging skin, and moles often prompt dermatologist appointments. There are so many reasons why people visit a dermatologist office, and if you are looking for an experienced, board-certified dermatologist in the area, look no further than Dr. Melanie L. Adams. She offers dermatology services like skin cancer screening, as well as aesthetic services and medical-grade skin care products.

Skin Cancer Screening

Many people fear skin cancer, but this skin condition is actually highly treatable when detected early. That is why it is so important to schedule a screening with our dermatologist if you suspect skin cancer to give yourself the best chance for a full recovery.

Anti-Aging Dermatology

If you are of a certain age, you have probably started noticing the unwelcome development of skin conditions like lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Spots due to sun exposure or aging are also a common skin complaint.

Laser Treatment

Lasers have rapidly advanced recently in the dermatology field. You can have your skin safely treated with lasers that precisely pinpoint and target only unhealthy skin, leaving healthy skin untouched. Laser treatments are effective in treating scars caused by acne, injury, or surgery. They can safely treat age spots, freckles, and skin blemishes.

Chemical Peels

Medical-grade chemical peels are a popular choice for those seeking to turn back the clock on aging skin. Peels are classified differently depending on their ingredients, the depth of penetration, and the length of time they are left on the skin. These peels can be used to treat a wide variety of unwanted skin conditions.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are another popular choice for minimally-invasive anti-aging treatments. This procedure can fill in fine lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume and hydration. It is important to remember that the results of dermal fillers are temporary. Your skin will continue to age, and the product will be absorbed in time. The good news is you can simply return to our office for follow-up treatments if you want to maintain your results.
