Note that while medical dermatology involves diseases of the skin and related tissues, cosmetic dermatology puts emphasis on the look of the skin. Though cosmetic and medical dermatology are different fields, they are definitely related, since health problems can lead to cosmetic problems, and changes to the appearance of the skin can be warning signs of underlying medical conditions. In some cases, as with acne, cosmetic and medical dermatology solutions may go hand in hand.

While many patients are focused on strictly cosmetic issues, such as wrinkles or loose skin, Dr. Turner is highly experienced in both cosmetic and medical dermatology. She takes a holistic approach with every patient—assessing how health impacts appearance and how appearance can indicate issues with heath—to provide well-rounded solutions. She believes that there are not isolated problems to be fixed, but that everything is connected.

Consultations are thorough, giving medical dermatology patients the opportunity to share their health history and ask questions and Dr. Turner the opportunity to better understand their condition and goals, as well as to develop a diagnosis and plan for care.

General Dermatology

General dermatology covers a wide range of skin issues, as well as problems related to hair and nails. Patients come to Dr. Ellen Turner with inflammation, bumps, dryness, itchiness, redness, scaly patches, growths, spots, lesions, and more. She can help to identify triggers and causes, as well as suggest remedies to clear up problem areas or mitigate ongoing symptoms. No matter the situation, Dr. Turner will listen to your concerns, carefully evaluate you, and determine the most appropriate interventions based on your clinical needs and personal preferences. Some of the main skin disorders for which she sees medical dermatology patients include acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and scars, but she is also knowledgeable on other lesser-known skin conditions and offers wellness testing.

Skin Cancer

Dr. Ellen Turner puts particular emphasis on preventing, diagnosing, and treating skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Services include education on what to watch for during routine self-checks, as well as full-body examinations to discover any suspicious spots or lesions, such as actinic keratoses, which are benign but can develop into cancer. Superficial radiation therapy is the Dermatology Office’s non-surgical treatment of choice for non-melanoma cancers.
