AlphaDerm Medical Services
Your skin is your well-being presented to the world. Therefore, your skin-aging is a reflection of chronological and environmental damage to your skin. AlphaDerm offers numerous personalized options for reversing this visible damage to achieve an improved cosmetic appearance:
Ranging from the evaluation and treatment of rashes to skin cancer, the medical dermatology services AlphaDerm provides are broad and effective. We utilize Dermoscopy for more accurate clinical interpretation of skin cancers.
A comprehensive dermascopic examination takes about 15 minutes for the doctor or physician’s assistant to complete. The Dermascope is a hand-held magnifier that a trained Dermatologist uses to magnify growths on the skin. Digital imaging techniques may also be used. As compared with examination by the naked eye, a dermascopic examination increases accuracy by 500%.
Dr. Glavey and her staff have used the Dermascopic examination technique since 1997. As of December 2011, Dr. Glavey and her staff have logged 16,800 hours of Dermascopic examination time, and 4,256 training hours in Dermascopic imaging.
Advising You Every Step Of The Way:
As an advisor in the care of your skin, it is our duty to examine your skin and answer any questions you may have about growths or changes in your skin. We are here to partner with you in your decision for treatment. We will do our best to answer your questions and inform you of all treatment options, including the option and consequences of selecting no treatment.
As with most of the specialties of medicine, your healthcare providers at AlphaDerm will attempt to avoid the use of procedures that compromise the integrity of the skin. If an unwanted growth or cancerous growth can be destroyed by using a non-invasive or non-surgical method, our dermatology team will suggest this as a preferred option.
At AlphaDerm we strive to stay abreast of the advancements in our specialty. Our decisions for treatment are based on an open dialogue with our patients and consideration for the available scientific data.
