Dermatology AtlantaAt Family Practice Center, PC, we have the resources needed to help our patients maintain and improve their skin’s health and natural beauty. The skin is the largest organ of the body, and our first line of defense against harmful factors in our environment. Although it helps protect us from the elements, our skin can be damaged by the sun, the cold, aging, and more. Healthy skin helps to regulate body temperature, protect internal organs, and defend the body against infection, but it needs proper care to maintain all these functions.

Achieving and maintaining healthy skin requires routine screenings, use of high-quality skincare products, proper diagnosis and treatment of skin ailments, and up-to-date information about how to protect the skin. These are all things we evaluate and discuss during complete physical wellness exams in our office. During the exam, we will scan the skin and provide our patient’s the opportunity to bring up any concerns that they may have.

Dermatology FAQs:

How can I tell if a new skin growth is potentially dangerous?

It’s important to be familiar with your skin in order to detect any new growths, moles, or marks that can be a sign of skin cancer or other irregularities. During a complete physical wellness exam in our office, don’t hesitate to bring up any potential concern regarding your skin that you may have. A good way to know if something is not right is if the size, shape, or coloring of a mole or mark changes over time, or if you have noticed a new rash or blemish recently.
