Skin Care

Your skin is your largest and heaviest organ (9 pounds adult average). The skin protects against heat, sunlight, injury, infection and also regulates body temperature, stores fat, water and vitamin D.  Your skin is an indicator of your overall health — changes in the color or feel of your skin can be signs of a medical problem. It’s important to be taught about your skin and have an effective skincare routine starting at any age. That’s why at Pediatric Care+ we now offer skin care and dermatology services including 

-Skincare consultations and home care regimens created for you

-Mole removal

-Acne for teens, tweens and adults. Multiple treatment modalities are available like prescription and OTC topical creams, in office chemical peels, prescription oral medications and nutrition counseling 

-Removal of minor skin irregularities with the Skin Sheek machine or cryotherapy

-Eczema

Skin Sheek Procedure

The Skin Sheek Machine is used to treat common, benign skin conditions found on the surface of your skin (epidermis). If you are bothered by that red spot on your chest, skin tags on your neck, brown spots on arms or cysts on your face, you can now part ways. Skin Sheek treatments are performed by Dr. Fuller MD or Canessa Leeflang FNP. The Skin Sheek™ Esthetics Machine works on the principle of attracting liquids through the application of heat, thereby dehydrating the blemish. Special probes regulate the application of high frequency radio wave currents directly onto the skin’s surface- without actually penetrating the skin.

What to Expect

Treatments usually take less than 10 seconds per area and appointments are scheduled for 10 minutes, meaning we can treat multiple areas at one appointment! The discomfort level is tolerable, feeling much like a tight pinch to the skin. Topical numbing gel can be bought from us and applied before your treatment, if you are worried about pain. Amazing results can be seen in just 1-2 treatments. Results are often instantaneous for most cherry angiomas. Other conditions, such as milia, cholesterol deposits, fibromas, warts, molluscum, sun spots, age spots, and keratoses will crust and heal over in 1-2 weeks.
