Did you know that your skin is your body's largest organ? That's right – your skin is an organ, and just like your internal organs, it requires daily nourishment, care and protection to keep it functioning at its best.
Dermatological concerns are generally categorized into three areas: Medical, Surgical and Aesthetic. Diseases of the skin are common but range in severity from minor cysts to potentially fatal melanomas (cancers). Riva Dermatology has the qualified staff with the breadth of experience to professionally diagnose and treat the full spectrum of dermal disorders.
At Riva Dermatology, we take a sincere interest in your well-being. We emphasize the need for good habits and a proper daily regimen of skin care. This involves much more than over-the-counter creams and sunscreen. Your skin is principally nourished from the inside-out; therefore your diet and even your mental state play vital roles in its health. And because our individual body types vary so greatly, the best approach for one person's dermal vitality may be ill-suited to another. This is why we encourage you to schedule an appointment for a consultation with one of our experienced dermatologists.
One Key Difference
Probably the most significant difference between your skin and your internal organs is that your skin is exposed and visible, and therefore subject to aesthetic as well as health concerns, since we all have an interest in maintaining a good appearance.
This distinguishes the field of dermatology in some ways from our medical peers – we must also cater to cosmetic interests, from laser hair removal, mole or tattoo removal, sclerotherapy for spider veins in the legs, acne treatments, Botox® injections and so much more.
At Riva Dermatology we've made Aesthetic our middle name, because we take pride in keeping abreast of the many rapidly improving treatments and technologies available to keep your skin looking its best, no matter what your age, gender or condition. We are here to help!
