You may see your physician regularly to make sure you are in good health, but what about the health of your skin? The quality of your skin and its appearance may be linked to your internal health, but there are several superficial issues that can be addressed by a trained dermatologist. Dr. Michalak is a board-certified dermatologist in Issaquah and provides a full range of treatments that address common skin concerns such as poor skin tone, a dull complexion, acne, rosacea, and many other common—and not-so-common—skin care issues. We use advanced technologies and equipment at our practice to ensure patients achieve the best possible results with minimal down time.
Here are some reasons why you need to visit a dermatologist regularly:
Skin Cancer Screenings
A board-certified dermatologist can perform skin cancer screenings at least once a year to ensure your skin is free of precancerous lesions. We advise patients to come in for a skin cancer screening at least once per year and to come in any time they notice significant changes in the appearance of moles and other marks on the skin. Performing self-checkups regularly is one way to monitor your skin throughout the year.
Customized Laser Treatments
We also offer laser skin rejuvenation treatments that are designed to benefit your specific skin type. Dr. Michalak will create a customized laser treatment plan based on your skin type and will work to minimize risks associated with many of these procedures. Other dermatologists or aestheticians often treat all skin the same, regardless of their tone or complexion. Dr. Michalak understands that it is critical to treat you as a unique condition, allowing him to provide you with the safest treatment and best results. Whether you are dealing with pigmentation issues, acne scars, or just have a dull-looking complexion, laser therapy may be the best way to rejuvenate your skin from inside out. If you have a darker skin type, it is even more important to work with a trained professional for any type of laser or advanced skin treatments.
Medical-Grade Chemical Peels
Even though you can get chemical peels at many spas and medical spas around Issaquah, deeper peels must be administered by a trained professional. Based on your skin type, Dr. Michalak will determine the strength of the peel and the number of treatments you need to achieve the best possible results. Some peels are more appropriate for certain skin types and can be combined with other medical spa treatments for even better results.
