Are you regretting the years you neglected to properly protect your skin from the sun?

We specialize in the health and appearance of your skin. Dr. Hill can remove or fade your brown spots to your cosmetic satisfaction and help prevent future skin cancer development as well.
What Causes Skin Sun Spots?
Chronic sun exposure is the cause of sun spots. UV light from the sun speeds up the production of melanin, a pigment in the upper layer of the skin. This localized pigment acceleration causes uneven skin color production which results in sun spots. Because of their skin’s sensitivity to the sun, fair-skinned people are far more likely to develop these skin lesions. Our treatment is aimed at removing the lesion and education on how to prevent the development of additional lesions in the future.

Symptoms of Skin Rash
Skin rash symptoms can vary significantly based on their specific cause. It is critical that you let a dermatologist in Atlanta, GA examine your skin rash symptoms thoroughly. In general, a rash is an eruption of the skin that can appear on any part of the body. This uncomfortable skin irritation changes the color or texture of your skin and causes it to become red, bumpy, scaly, crusty or blistered. A skin rash can be very itchy or even painful. When someone in your family experiences these skin rash symptoms, come to Skin of Culture and Hair Center for a thorough evaluation and treatment.
Causes of Skin Rashes?
Dr. Hill can give you answers to what is causing your skin rash. A rash can be caused by a variety of factors. Some common causes of rashes include are:
- Autoimmune conditions such as Lupus or diabetes
- Allergies from foods, dyes, medicines, insect stings, or metals
- Bacterial or viral infections
- Fungal infections
- Reaction to vaccination
- Exposure to the sun (sunburn) or heat
- Other skin diseases such as eczema or acne
We have the tools and expertise to investigate your specific skin rash cause. Dr. Hill will thoroughly assess the history and appearance of the rash to determine the causes. In difficult cases resulting in hives or persistent rash, a PATCH test can be applied. A PATCH test assesses whether you have allergies to your home everyday products. A group of 50-70 of the most common allergens found in hygienic products is applied to your back using paper tape for 48 hours. The tape is removed and the area is reviewed for allergic reactions in subsequent days. If you are reactive to any of the chemical on the paper strips any product you use with that chemical should be removed from your regimen. Regardless, a rash should not be taken lightly.
