It is hard to believe that a dark growth as small as a pencil eraser can be fatal, but the reality is that melanoma is one of the most lethal forms of cancer, especially among young adults.
Skin cancer is by far the most common type of cancer, but it is also among the most preventable, through diligent use of sunscreen to avoid the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.
Dr. Benson has a long-established reputation as an expert in the prevention, detection, and treatment of skin cancer, with over four decades of experience in the US and New Zealand, the skin cancer capital of the world.
We offer detection and treatment with expert care for the wide array of rashes, allergies, infections, and growths which present themselves every day in our practice.
The causes of acne are varied, and the treatments are equally broad. Benson Dermatology believes in providing a variety of personalized treatments for our patients of all ages.
Common fungal diseases are treatable with topical or oral medications, whereas painful ingrown toenails are immediately and permanently treated in our office.
We treat it all—from the distressing alopecia areata to ringworm of the scalp, from bothersome dandruff to severe psoriasis, from hereditary male baldness to thinning hair of middle-aged women.
For troublesome and potentially disfiguring skin cancers, Mohs micrographic surgery has now become the gold standard of treatment, and it is available at Benson Dermatology.
All dermatological surgeries are done under local anesthesia using refined plastic surgery techniques to insure the best possible cosmetic result.
For the first time in the 31 years of my life, I can honestly say I feel confident enough to leave the house without makeup!
When looking for a medical provider, is there a reliable indicator to decipher a true expert in a given field from one who simply calls oneself a specialist? The answer is called “board certification.” Contained within these two words are three to eight years of intense, full-time academic and clinical training beyond four years M.D. or D.O. degree followed by days-long testing by an accredited national specialist board.
