Skin Exams

A skin exam is a visual inspection of the skin performed by a licensed dermatologist. At Melanie L. Adams, M.D., P.A, these skin exams are conducted by Dr. Melanie Adams. Periodic full body skin exams are an excellent way for dermatologists to evaluate your skin health, check for cancer, and diagnose any newly formed skin conditions.

Mole Excisions

If you’d like to remove a mole for aesthetic or medical reasons, Dr. Adams offers mole excision procedures. The mole excision procedure is typically a quick process, but can be more involved and extensive depending on the condition of your mole.

Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags are common, small, soft growths that protrude from the skin. While these growths are completely harmless, they can be annoying or aesthetically unappealing. Melanie L. Adams, M.D., P.A offers patients a quick way to remove skin tags that involves minimal pain and no downtime.

Acne Treatment

Acne is the most common skin condition that people in the United States suffer from today. During an acne treatment consultation, Dr. Adams will examine your skin, determine your possible acne causes, and prescribe a variety of topical and oral medications to begin to correct your condition. Depending on the way you respond to these medications, she may adjust your prescriptions or recommend additional, in-office treatment options.

Eczema Treatment

Individuals with eczema develop raised, red, tiny blisters on the surface of their skin. While this is a chronic condition that cannot be cured, Dr. Adams can prescribe medications and in-office treatments that help manage the intensity and frequency of flare-ups.
