Skin is the most exposed organ of the body. Because of that, our skin encounters more contact with disease, developments, growths, rashes and other forms of reactions to all sorts of things. With so many reactions possible, it’s difficult to know exactly why your skin is reacting the way that it is. It could be a rash from allergies to something that you brushed up against, cancerous cells building up or an infection that is spreading quickly for some unknown reason.

In the times that you’re unsure of what’s happening to your skin, or more importantly, why, you can count on the team of dermatologists at Azeal Dermatology Institute.

What will a skin biopsy do?

Because there are so many different reactions that our skin has, we conduct skin biopsies to determine if there is a serious problem and what it may be. Being able to determine what the problem is allows for us to proceed with determining why the problem is happening. Once we’ve figured out what the issue is, we can then move forward with determining which treatment will be best suited.

What happens during a skin biopsy?

When you schedule your skin biopsy you’ll see that it’s not a difficult procedure at all. We will start by scraping a sample of the skin that is in question and place it in a solution. The solution that we use helps us determine if there is an issue with the skin and what the problem is. Once we’ve determined what it is that is happening with your skin, we provide you with the information discovered, and progress with the treatment that best suits your diagnosis.

Don’t let any skin issues go without a diagnosis. There are certain issues that could become life threatening if left uncared for. Schedule your appointment with Azeal Dermatology Institute today and get your skin taken care of.
