Additional Information

Der-mato-pathology is the microscopic examination and diagnosis of skin disorders.? A dermatopathologist is a highly trained physician who specializes in diagnosing skin diseases by looking through a microscope.

When a dermatologist elects to do a skin biopsy it is because they are unsure of the diagnosis or they want to understand the growth pattern of a particular skin cancer to determine the best surgical approach. The accurate microscopic interpretation of the biopsy is important and it is best to have someone who understands both the clinical and pathological side of the skin diseases.

Dr. Michael W. Peterson is double board certified in dermatology and dermatopathology and examines biopsy and excisional specimens from many dermatologists and providers in the valley. Dermatopathologists provide a personal, consultative service to dermatologists, which includes analyzing your medical information in conjunction with observations through the microscope. The ultimate goal is to provide the best possible care for the patient.

Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States. It is an embarrassing problem for many teenagers and can commonly continue into adulthood.Acne is a disorder of the pilosebaceous (hair and oil) unit of the skin. Acne begins during adolescence when androgenic hormones are at its peak causing abnormal follicular keratinization. What is “abnormal follicular keratinization”? Well, instead of the skin shedding like it should it binds with excessive oil and plugs up pores within the skin.

This blockage results in forming comedones or what are better known as blackheads or whiteheads. Over time whiteheads and blackheads will enlarge and rupture and then produce an inflammatory condition called papules, pustules, and cysts. These are the red tender bumps that stand out like constellations or “third eyes” on the face. If left alone, these inflammatory and infections lesions can worsen and result in permanent skin damage and scars.

Despite what testimonials and late-night infomercials for acne preparations say there is no “one size fits all treatment”. Acne is influenced by many different factors such as genetics, stress, environment, lifestyle habitus, and so on. When it comes to acne everyone is different. Most cases of mild to moderate acne can be treated with topical medications which are used to train the skin and decrease inflammation.

There are many over the counter products but they are not as strong or as effective as prescription strengths. Occasionally acne is more advance and oral antibiotics are even stronger medications like Accutane is necessary to prevent scarring. An exam and discussion with Dr Peterson can help determine what effective treatment is the right one for your type of acne and to improve your overall appearance.

Product and Services

For your added convenience and to offer a more cost-effective treatment option, patients needing surgical dermatology procedures can actually have them performed right here in our office. Patients will find a sterile, safe, and relaxing environment for surgical procedures to be done efficiently. Our surgical services include the following:

SKIN CANCER EXCISION.Some non-melanoma skin cancers, such as basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, may be removed using a standard excision. This procedure removes the skin cancer as well as a small portion of the healthy tissue surrounding it. The area is then closed using stitches or, if the incision is large, a flap or skin graph.

CYST & LIPOMA EXCISION.Cysts are small closed sacs that contain fluid or solid material. They may be surgically removed to avoid problems such as inflammation and infection, or to improve cosmetic appearance. Lipomas differ from cysts in that they are primary composed of soft, fatty tissue. Lipomas are typically benign, easily movable and painless. Both cysts and lipomas may be surgically removed to avoid problems such as inflammation and infection, or to improve cosmetic appearance

MOLE REMOVAL.Moles are normally harmless and quite common for most skin. These growths are usually tan or brown in color, sometimes raised, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Over time, some moles may change, becoming lighter in color, or bigger. Another treatment is to remove your mole by surgical excision or shave excision to stop irritation, to improve appearance, or to prevent the mole from becoming cancerous. A change in a mole can indicate a serious problem. If you have a mole that has become larger, changed color, is asymmetric, seems to have developed an irregular border, itches, crusts, bleeds, or is painful, consult Dr. Peterson immediately.

WART REMOVAL.Warts are growths of thick layers of skin that are caused by a virus. People of all ages may develop warts anywhere on the skin with varying degrees of discomfort. Warts may be removed by cryosurgery, curettage, electro surgery, injections with chemicals, or laser surgery.

ACNE SCAR REDUCTION.This procedure can typically improve the way scars look by changing the size, depth, or color. However, no scar can ever be completely erased, and no technique will return the scar to its normal uninjured appearance. Patients are pleasantly surprised by how much smoother and lighter their skin looks after an acne scar reduction. Dr. Peterson will suggest the best approach after an examination.

SCAR REVISIONScars can result from acne, chickenpox, accidents, or previous surgery. Dr. Peterson will examine your scar to determine the best treatment plan. He and his technicians can often improve them with dermabrasion, or by using soft tissue fillers like collagen, collagen enhancers, hyaluronic acid, or fat injected into the skin to fill depressions. A complete excisional revision may also be used. Raised scars can be surgically leveled or flattened with corticosteroid injections.
