Franklin Skin & Laser is a leading provider of a multitude of acne treatments. Our menu of acne services is varied to meet the unique needs of individual patients. In some cases, gentle chemical peel treatment can rid the skin of dead, damaged cells and clear clogged pores. We may also prescribe medical grade cosmeceutical solutions for topical application. Severe forms of acne may require oral medication, and some of our patients may benefit greatly from photodynamic therapy.

Acne is not a one-size-fits-all problem. Therefore, one-size-fits-all commercial acne products are insufficient for optimal skin health. To experience healthier, attractive skin, contact your experienced Nashville aesthetic team.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition in which reddening and acne type spots may appear on the skin as the result of some type of trigger. Several symptoms of this condition set it apart from acne, aside from its chronic nature:

  • Skin sensitivity or a burning sensation
  • Diffuse redness
  • Dry skin
  • Swelling
  • Blemishes
  • Eye irritation

How does Franklin Skin & Laser treat rosacea?

Our team understands the toll such a chronic condition can have on one’s confidence and quality of life. We have developed a protocol that helps our patients decrease the redness and blemishes of rosacea.

The skilled practitioners at Franklin Skin & Laser in Nashville use laser technology to break up the blood vessels that cause redness in rosacea. After treatment, vessels are diminished and naturally absorbed by the body.

In addition to specific treatment, we also help our patients identify potential triggers, such as wind or specific foods, so that preventive measures may be employed at home. With professional care and lifestyle modifications, it is possible to decrease the frequency and severity of rosacea flare-ups.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is one of the most concerning conditions faced today due to its alarming rates. Today, the various types of skin cancer are diagnosed more frequently than prostate, colorectal, breast, or lung cancers. When we think of skin cancer, there may be a bit of fear involved due to the seriousness of melanoma. At this time, melanoma remains the least frequently diagnosed form of skin cancer.

The key to successful treatment for skin cancer is early detection. This is true of all different forms of skin cancer – basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas and melanoma. The team at Franklin Skin & Laser in Nashville encourages area residents to visit us annually for skin cancer screening, and to institute monthly self-exams into their skin health routine.

Nashville skin cancer treatments are designed around the individual

At Franklin Skin & Laser, each case of skin cancer is treated based on specifics such as the age of the patient and the size and location of the skin cancer. We also take into consideration the type of skin cancer we are treating. Treatment options include procedures such as excision, topical chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. If skin cancer has been diagnosed, your physician will explain the details of your treatment options so that you may make a confident decision on how to proceed.

Most cases of skin cancer are the result of excessive exposure to UV rays. This may come from direct sunlight or the use of tanning beds. Though the most common forms of skin cancer are non-melanoma, protective measures are beneficial to skin health and for the prevention of premature aging.

Mole removal

Moles are a point of concern for many people today due to their potential link to skin cancer. We help our patients learn how to identify growths that may look abnormal and encourage prompt evaluation for moles that meet criteria in terms of size, color, texture, and borders. During your routine skin cancer screening at Franklin Skin & Laser, your practitioner is happy to provide details of the steps for successful self-examination.

Not all moles are indicative of abnormal cell growth. Suspicious characteristics are only one reason a mole may need to be removed. We also provide mole removal treatment for patients who wish to say goodbye to an unattractive mole in a visible location. Moles may also be positioned in locations that are rubbed or scratched frequently, causing discomfort or bleeding. For these and other reasons, you may want to have your Nashville skin center remove a mole.

Skin Tags

Skin tags may look like small moles that protrude away from the surface of the skin. Regardless of size, skin tags can be both unattractive and uncomfortable. This type of skin condition, linked to genetics, occurs more frequently in adults and affects nearly a quarter of the population. Due to the locations skin tags tend to develop, including the eyelids, underarms, and neck, there are numerous reasons one may wish to obtain medical treatment for removal.
