College Park Dermatology Services – Buckhead Dermatology
For more than 25 years, Buckhead Dermatology has provided comprehensive dermatology services to address a range of skin disorders. Dr. Straughn works with clients to develop a custom treatment plan that will meet the unique needs of her clients, never a one-size-fits-all approach. Buckhead Dermatology College Park treats skin conditions, including:
Acne: Acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can leave more than a physical mark; they can cause emotional stress and lack of confidence. At Buckhead Dermatology, we understand the toll that acne can take on patients of any age. Dr. Straughn will assess your skin to identify the root causes of your acne and prepare an effective treatment plan to manage it for the long-term.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra: DPN is a condition commonly seen in people with dark skin tones, presenting as small dark growths that may protrude from the skin. DPN is a benign skin condition, but many patients opt to have them removed since they often grow on the cheeks and around the eyes. Buckhead Dermatology College Park has successfully removed DPN using non-invasive, pain-free techniques that offer great results.
Ingrown Hair: Also referred to as razor bumps, ingrown hairs are common in people with very curly hair. The condition can be aggravated by shaving and waxing, making it a challenge to avoid the problem. Dr. Straughn can offer several treatments to heal and prevent ingrown hairs, including topical creams, antibiotics and laser treatments.
Acne Keloidalis: Acne Keloidalis is a skin condition commonly found in black men, usually around their necklines and scalp. Not only can these bumps be unsightly, but they can also become itchy, painful and infected if not treated by a board-certified dermatologist. Buckhead Dermatology College Park can treat acne keloidalis with steroid and antibiotic creams, injections or surgery depending on the severity of the case.
Keloids: Thick scars that develop after an injury, keloids can be itchy and painful. If you are suffering from a keloid, contact the black skin specialists at our College Park Dermatology office. Dr. Sherrie-Ann Straughn has extensive experience in treating keloids for patients of color with much success. Treating keloids can be difficult; trust your treatment to the experts in caring for black skin.
Vitiligo: Vitiligo is a loss of pigmentation in the skin that often appears on the face. At Buckhead Dermatology College Park, Dr. Straughn understands the emotional and social impact that patients with vitiligo experience. She will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if there are underlying medical conditions that triggered the condition. Through a careful and thorough consultation with the patient, she will detail the available treatment options so they can make an informed decision.
Melasma: Often referred to as the “mask of pregnancy,” melasma typically presents in pregnant women or those who have experienced hormonal changes. One of the primary ways to prevent or treat melasma is to avoid prolonged sun exposure and to wear sunscreen religiously. Without these precautions, melasma returns in many patients. If you are experiencing melasma, contact Buckhead Dermatology College Park today to learn about your Atlanta melasma treatment options.
Eczema: Characterized by itchy, red and often painful skin, eczema is common among people of all skin tones. Eczema can be very uncomfortable, so you must seek out treatment from a board-certified dermatologist who has experience treating all types of eczema. The College Park Dermatology office of Buckhead Dermatology provides effective eczema treatments, including topical and oral steroids, UV light and anti-itch lotions.
