How can I be assessed virtually for my skin?
Our certified physicians will meet with you over video conferencing to address your skin complaints and goals of treatment.
You may also provide pictures of your skin to better allow the physician to assess your concerns. From there, the team can help to formulate a treatment plan with lifestyle recommendations, and medications if necessary.

What are the most common skin complaints?
An inflammatory skin disorder that presents with redness, swelling and sometimes pus. Acne can be caused by build up of oily sebum and/or bacteria within pores.
Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
An inflammatory skin disorder that is characterized by skin dryness, redness, scaling and itchiness that leads to peeling skin.
An immunological skin disorder that is characterized by increased skin cell shedding and formation. This is an ongoing condition that can affect all parts of the body.
Should I use a cream or ointment?
Creams are easily absorbed into the skin and are non-greasy. They provide rapid onset of action. Creams are preferred for their aesthetic benefits since it does not form an oily barrier like ointments.
Ointments are oil-based and help to trap moisture in the skin. They are beneficial for skin areas that are very dry and scaly. Ointments are absorbed at a slower rate, which delays onset of action but prolongs the therapeutic effects because medication remains on the affected skin area for a longer period.
For scalp lesions and hair-bearing areas, lotions are the recommended base for medications.
