Welcome to the Dermatology Group of Southern California in Rancho Palos Verdes. Located in one of the southern coastal areas of Los Angeles, Rancho Palos Verdes, also referred to by locals as Rancho PV, combines dazzling views of Santa Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean with large areas of public open space and incorporates the largest stretch of coastal open space along this part of the coastline. Rancho PV is an affluent area with a large population of people of Anglo Saxon descent, which means their light skin is particularly vulnerable to the hot Southern Californian sun.
One of the popular outdoor pursuits in Rancho PV is golf; the city is home to one of the Trump golf courses, the Trump National Golf Course and, as is the case with every type of outdoor activity, the increased exposure to the sun carries with it the increased risk of sun related skin diseases and disorders such as skin cancer, sun spots (solar keratoses or actinic keratoses), brown or age spots and melanomas.
One of the most effective ways to treat some of the dermatological problems like enlarged capillaries, redness, sun spots and roughness caused by the increased exposure to the sun in this part of the world, is with MiXto, VBeam or PDL laser treatments. These effectively target the excess melanin that causes uneven skin tones which reduces the appearance of brown spots, sun spots and age spots, stimulate production of the skin’s natural collagen to produce natural, younger looking skin, reduce wrinkles, smooth acne scars, reduce spider veins as well as treating a variety of conditions like warts, Poikiloderma of Civatte, Angiomas, Hemangiomas, Venous lake and Psoriasis.
Too much sun and an outdoor lifestyle unfortunately causes skin to appear prematurely aged but these days it is possible to restore your appearance with effective anti aging treatment. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in skin, and when it’s injected into the skin it draws water into the area, rehydrating and plumping it up to give a fresh, rounded, youthful appearance.
Other effective treatments available at the Dermatology Group of Southern California include Sculptra® Aesthetic, an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid that restores volume to temples, cheeks and the lower face. We also provide Botox®, SmoothBeam which reduces acne and other scarring, FotoFacial (brown spots and diffuse pigmentation), Chemical Peels, Radiesse® amd Juvederm®. For more information about any of these treatments please contact us on (310) 543-4444 or via our website.
The best way to reduce the amount of solar damage to your skin is to stay out of the sun during peak UV times in the middle of the day. Rancho PV provides plenty of things to see and do that will keep you inside. Learn about the natural and cultural history of the Palos Verde peninsula and the Pacific grey whale at the Interpretive Center houses. You can watch the annual migration of this magnificent creature from the centre between December and April each year.
