Acne or other unwanted facial conditions in adult women is often more than an undesirable cosmetic concern. For example, acne may be a symptom of an underlying medical condition or health problem.
Our dermatologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and tumors of the skin, the largest organ of the body. Skin diseases can be isolated to the skin or be manifestations of internal disease. Our dermatologists provide state-of-the-art treatment options as well as prevention strategies for general dermatology conditions such as acne, psoriasis, dermatitis and much more.
Skin Cancer— According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 90 percent of all skin cancers are caused by sun exposure. Melanoma is the third most common cancer in women between the ages of 20 and 39. By reducing or eliminating the skin’s exposure to the sun, melanoma can be prevented. At Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, we’re dedicated to educating people about the most effective ways to protect themselves against this highly preventable form of cancer. And should you need it, we offer the services of highly skilled surgeons, radiation and medical oncologists who are experts in the treatment of melanoma.
