Welcome to the Dermatology Group of Southern California in Manhattan Beach. A classic southern California beach city to the south of Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach is popular with sun lovers, volley ballers, surfers and sunbathers. It’s a great lifestyle and a great place to visit but there are certain precautions you should take to avoid excessive damage to your skin from the sun. Covering up exposed skin with protective clothing, wearing a hat outdoors and using appropriate strength sunscreens are all highly effective and right at the top of the list.
At the Dermatology Group of Southern California we specialise in skin cancer and melanoma detection and treatment. Our dermatologists are all highly trained specialists and can diagnose and advise you on the best types of treatment for a wide range of skin conditions caused by solar damage.
If you are worried about sun spots, freckles, age spots and other sun related skin damage, feel free to give us a call at (310) 543-4444 or contact us via our website to discuss your concerns with one of our qualified dermatologists.
It’s an unfortunate fact that eventually a sun worshipping lifestyle will damage your skin, even with the best of precautions. Some of the most common sun related skin conditions we see are age or brown spots (also called liver spots or solar lentigines), sun spots (solar keratoses or actinic keratoses), enlarged capillaries, redness and rough skin, and of course skin cancers and melanomas.
Some, like skin cancer and melanomas, require appropriate treatment as they’re life threatening but others can be treated with a range of anti aging therapies such as MiXto, VBeam or PDL laser treatments that stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production to help smooth lines and wrinkles or FotoFacial IPL which targets excess melanin to even out the appearance of spots, redness and rough skin. Other successful treatments performed by our dermatologists include Chemical peels, Botox®, Radiesse®, Juvederm®, Sculptra® Aesthetic and Voluma. We can also reduce the appearance of scarring like that caused by severe acne with SmoothBeam.
For more information about any of these treatments and therapies please contact us at (310) 543-4444 or via our website.
Finding things to do that keep you out of the sun during the peak UV period, which is the middle of the day, will help reduce the effects of solar damage to your skin. Although Manhattan Beach has plenty of outdoor activities, there are also indoor activities. AdventurePlex is an adventure playground that provides plenty of indoor fun and action such as a ropes course and climbing wall.
Located out on the Manhattan Beach Pier is the charming Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab and Aquarium which makes an ideal educational outing, particularly for children.
There are also plenty of dining and shopping options in Downtown Manhattan Beach.
