Skin Care for Seniors Atlanta GA

As we age, significant changes occur in our bodies. Once we reach the age of 50, we are more prone to skin-related disorders that plague the aging population. Seniors must realize that they need to take care of their skin in the second half of life even more than they did during the first half. Without prompt diagnosis and treatments, skin conditions can become painful and debilitating.

Skin cancer among seniors is a serious matter. Research indicates that over 50% of deaths associated with skin cancer occur in those over the age of 65. Skin cancer is a deadly disease, and, if it is not treated in its earliest stage, can quickly cause devastation. Seniors must visit their dermatologist at least once a year for an annual skin check. During a skin check, a dermatologist will thoroughly evaluate senior patients for suspicious moles, new skin growths, or any other indicators that could imply skin cancer.

Dry skin is another skin condition that tends to plague seniors. As we age, our cellular renewal process slows down significantly. This tapering not only leads to less moisture in the skin, but it also leads to a thinner epidermal layer. This is why the elderly often have “paper thin” skin, because they have a weakened ability to retain moisture. Dry skin can be itchy, uncomfortable, and even painful. A dermatologist can diagnose proper dry skin relief treatment.

Other skin conditions that seniors are at a higher risk for include:

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman and her entire staff are equipped to treat skin disorders that plague senior patients.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
