There is not an exact definition of sensitive skin since causes and effects tend to vary from person to person. However, it is estimated that almost half of all Americans suffer from some degree of sensitive skin. There are typically thought to be four distinct types of sensitive skin: contact dermatitis, acne, rosacea, and burning & stinging. All four of these types have one common characteristic: inflammation. Therefore, if people have inflammation of the skin on a chronic or reoccurring basis, they are typically diagnosed with sensitive skin. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman is an expert when it comes to the skin, and she founded our practice to provide patients with a new level of skin care.
For many years, patients with sensitive skin were given some type of topical cream and told to simply “apply it.” However, with her background in extensive research, Dr. Jamie Weisman does not take the same approach many others take in the dermatology field. Dr. Weisman combines years of clinical research with active patient care. She is not merely interested in putting a Band-Aid on the problem, but finding a real solution that will last long-term. The entire staff at Medical Dermatology Specialists treats all of our patients on a personalized basis in order to provide them with the specific care that they deserve. Children often have very sensitive skin for no reason. Dr. Weisman is not interested in using them as a “pin cushion” to see what works, but in finding out the root causes of their skin issues so that they can find relief that will last into adulthood.
Whether you are an adult or the parent of a child looking for a solution to sensitive skin, Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta is the name you can trust. Dr. Weisman has built her reputation on her commitment to finding resolutions while providing patients with individualized care.
