Medical Skin Care Q & A

What is medical skin care?

Medical skin care comprises prescription treatments that your skin may need to look its best and function optimally. At DERMAGNIFY, in Ponte Vedra, Florida, double-board-certified dermatologist Mark A. Cappel, MD, and his expert team use imaging, magnifying, and diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the causes of skin issues and recommend treatments.

Why are biopsies necessary for medical skin care?

If you guess at what’s causing a skin problem or rely only on the outward appearance, you may not arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Dr. Cappel is specially trained and board-certified both as a dermatologist and a dermatopathologist. 

If you have a skin issue, including a rash or troubling lesion, Dr. Cappel takes a biopsy so that he can get a closer look at your skin cells. He examines the tissue with pathology under the microscope. Biopsies help him precisely identify problems such as:

  • Skin infection
  • Skin cancer
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Folliculitis
  • Lichen planus

Many women, men, and teens have more than one skin issue that troubles them. Treating one skin condition without understanding the total skin health picture could worsen the other skin problem.

How do biopsies facilitate customized treatments?

Once Dr. Cappel understands what’s going on with your skin at the microscopic or cellular level, he determines the precise and customized treatments that will improve your skin condition. Depending on your needs, he may recommend:

  • Medications
  • Ointments
  • Laser treatment
  • Injectable skin treatments
  • Excision (removal of lesions)
  • Medical grade skin care products

You may need more than one treatment to restore health to your skin.
