Dermatology Services Reviews
"GREAT service!! I’ve gone twice to see Dr. Tam for skin issues. Once for my face as I spend a lot of time out in the elements with my job. Another visit for a dry itchy scalp. She quickly knew what it was and explained everything to me and what we could do remedy it. SUPER COOL DOC!! 5+"- M.B. / Facebook / Nov 29, 2017
"Dr. Tam has completely cured my hormonal acne within 2 months of seeing her without any additional scarring. Her assistant, Gail, has been so accommodating with all of my prescriptions including this miracle cream for past scars that has changed my life forever! I’ve also seen her for my submental fat beneath my chin... and have had my double chin treated with kybella! Absolutely love my results! Would never see another dermatologist! I recommend Dr. Tam to all of my friends, family, and everyone!"- C.A. / Google / Sep 15, 2018
Types of dermatology Services
Our seasoned team of skin care specialists is pleased to offer the following dermatological services:
Acne is among the most common skin ailments in the U.S., affecting nearly 60 million people each year. While many cases are mild and can be controlled with medication and a consistent at-home cleansing regimen, many individuals have it so severe that scarring could occur. Acne normally is a combo of whiteheads, pimples, blackheads, and small cysts, as well as additional itchy, red, and swollen areas of the skin. Caused by a mix of bacteria, clogged pores, and dead skin cells, it is most commonly found in teens but can affect adults well into their 40s. Acne most often appears on the face, chest, and back. Plastic Surgery Vegas offers numerous treatment solutions to control and maintain acne and clear its standard symptoms. Our services include prescription creams, oral antibiotics, laser therapies, and chemical peels.
Symptoms of acne may vary, depending on the kind of acne you have and its severity. Blemishes are a common, observable symptom of acne and come in many distinct forms, such as blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pustules, papules, and nodules. Every form of blemish ranges from moderate to severe, which can cause great irritation or discomfort. Unfortunately, in many cases, these inflamed areas of tissue can leave behind long-lasting acne scars. To help diminish the appearance of these scars, we offer several treatment options, including chemical peels, Clear + Brilliant®, microdermabrasion, and microneedling with SkinPen®.
Melasma is a common skin condition that presents irregular patches of darkened skin on the face or forearms. These tan or brownish patches generally occur symmetrically over the brow, cheeks, nose, or upper lip. The appearance of melasma distinguishes it from other skin conditions. It is also found more often in females and is thought to be caused by sun damage or by hormonal changes, such as with menopause and pregnancy. Those with darker skin types are more prone to melasma than individuals with lighter complexions. There are numerous possibilities for the treatment of melasma, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or fractional lasers.
A mole is a growth on the skin that results from a bundle of colored skin cells. Our practice provides regular mole checks and removal for patients of the Greater Vegas area who have one or more of these blemishes. While many are harmless, some can turn into cancer. During mole evaluations, we analyze, measure, and document the dimensions, shape, and development of moles on the body to determine whether they're safe and not changing or cancerous. They can be black, brown, or a combination of the colors, and could appear independently or in groups. Moles can also be flat or look like a round bump. If you have moles on your body and are unsure about the severity of one, or if one has become bothersome, then it's important to inform a professional, especially if one starts to change in shape or size, or begins to itch or bleed.
There are a wide variety of dermal conditions that can negatively impact the overall look, feel, and health of your skin. Our highly trained team is well-versed in all aspects of medical and cosmetic skin care and is equipped to treat common skin conditions, such as contact dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. The cause and symptoms of these conditions vary, but our team can accurately diagnose your concerns so you can get the specific treatment you need to bring relief.
Alopecia areata is the rapid reduction of hair on the scalp, leading to rough and sporadic bald spots. It is a genetic hair condition with a more gradual process of baldness, but it might begin to appear as early as puberty for both women and men and is sometimes known as female or male pattern baldness. Alopecia is extremely prevalent and will probably affect you or somebody you know at some point, which is why our practice offers a number of the most innovative hair restoration treatments to our patients. Depending on the degree and severity of the baldness, different options are available. However, we commonly use PRP therapy to treat alopecia, which utilizes a patient's own platelet-rich plasma to promote the regrowth of damaged hair follicles.
