Having beautiful, healthy skin is no accident. When you see someone with great skin, chances are good that a dermatologist helped them to achieve those results. That's because skin disorders are very common. Fortunately, medical dermatology treatment can improve or cure a number of conditions ranging from a simple rash to skin cancer. The well qualified and highly experienced practitioners at The Dermatology Group are prepared to address any and all concerns you may have related to the largest organ in the human body- the skin!
Treatments for Acne
Acne is incredibly common, and not just in teenagers. Acne occurs when a pore gets plugged with oil and skin cells. Bacteria infect the plugged pore, and there you have it—a pimple! Acne is uncomfortable and causes embarrassment. It can also cause scarring. For those suffering from acne, the news is good. The practitioners at The Dermatology Group utilize a comprehensive approach for dealing with acne and for minimizing acne scars. In addition to medical treatments like topical retinoids, oral antibiotics and isotretinoin, there is also the option for Blu-Light treatments. This innovative therapy involves the application of a high intensity blue light which kills the bacteria that contribute to acne. Depending on the severity, other options may include medications, intense pulsed light or laser treatments and/or a medical grade facial with one of our aestheticians.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder that causes the development of red, scaly patches on the skin. Psoriasis is a huge problem for more than seven million people in the United States alone! Flare ups can happen frequently and have a significant negative impact on a patient's quality of life. Coping with the hot Florida weather can definitely be problematic when psoriasis makes it difficult to wear shorts or go sleeveless. Innovative treatments like biologic medications can turn the situation around. At The Dermatology Group, patients can also receive psoriasis treatment via the advanced XTRAC laser system. The XTRAC laser makes psoriasis treatment quick, efficient and painless, and the results can last for months. Schedule a medical dermatology appointment to learn more.
Human skin is subject to a number of disorders that cause pigmentary changes. These conditions include melasma, sun spots and vitiligo. A number of treatment options are available for these issues, including topical creams, chemical peels, and laser therapies.
State-of-the-Art Skin Cancer Treatment
Florida is home to year-round sunshine… and unfortunately, also to a high incidence of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Many people seek a consultation with The Dermatology Group because of skin cancer concerns. Whether you're interested in a routine cancer screening or are seeking aggressive treatment for an already diagnosed condition, the practitioners at The Dermatology Group offer the most highly effective treatment options, including state-of-the-art Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT) and Mohs Micrographic Surgery. During a medical dermatology check-up, you'll receive a thorough full-body screening and examination.

The Dermatology Group also offers cutting edge Blu light therapy and various other medical treatments for management of precancerous lesions related to chronic sun damage.
Kids are not just little adults- they have their own unique set of skin conditions! Children are prone to rashes, warts, molluscum and other conditions that require treatment. The practitioners at The Dermatology Group offer specialized care for even Florida's youngest residents. Children are quickly put at ease and so are their parents. At The Dermatology Group, we'll show you that a trip to the dermatologist isn't scary- it might even be fun!

The Dermatology Group's patients benefit from the use of intense pulsed light and laser treatments for various skin conditions.

Each minimally invasive procedure is safe and effective, and can drastically improve the health and appearance of your skin in a short amount of time!
There are many skin conditions that specifically affect women. These include gynecologic conditions like lichen sclerosus and lichen planus, as well as rashes during pregnancy. Many women feel more comfortable addressing these concerns with a female doctor. Dr. Zendell has a special interest in women's health and specializes in the treatment of vulvar skin disease.
