Men Need A Dermatologist Too

It is very common to hear about a woman or teenager with an upcoming dermatology appointment. However, it is important that we not overlook the skin care needs that concern men. You may be surprised at the variety of ways that a board certified dermatologist can treat the skin, hair and nail problems that plague men specifically. Here are some common male dermatologic concerns that Olansky Dermatology Associates can treat effectively:

  • Shaving Irritation: According to American Academy of Dermatology, 78 percent of men who shave have experienced irritation. Whether it is razor burn, shaving folliculitis or ingrown facial hair, a dermatologist can help remedy your chronic shaving concerns, which may include solutions with laser hair removal.
  • Hair Loss: Male pattern baldness is an inherited tendency that usually begins in man’s thirties. There are many topical and oral medications that can block the formation of testosterone in the hair follicle. A professional skin care expert can help you determine the best hair loss treatment for you. A general rule with hair loss treatment in men, the earlier the better!
  • Fungus: Athlete’s foot, jock itch and nail fungus are all common male problems that a dermatologist needs to treat. Fungus can spread very easily and quickly to other parts of the body and can be very uncomfortable. It is important to not only treat the fungus effectively but also understand the ways in which you can avoid a fungal infection in the future.
  • Skin Cancer: 1 out of 35 Caucasian males will be diagnosed with skin cancer (as opposed to 1 out of 50 women). Since sun exposure is the primary cause of skin cancer it is essential that men use a sunscreen on a daily basis, a task that only 5% of men admitted to doing (American Academy of Dermatology). Olansky Dermatology Associates is proud to offer the best in skin cancer treatment for men, including state-of-the-art Mohs surgery.

These are just a handful of common male skin care complaints. Other frequent concerns that a dermatologist can treat are dandruff, aging or wrinkled skin, rosacea and rashes. Regardless of whether or not you think you can handle your skin problems on your own, it is important to realize that a dermatologist has expertise to treat people of all ages, ethnicity and gender. Men can benefit from both aesthetic and medical dermatology treatments. Healthy, young looking skin is not gender specific!

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
