Skin Diseases

The skin is the body's largest organ; therefore, dermatology is arguably medicine’s largest specialty.

Dermatology encompasses all medical, surgical, and cosmetic issues of the body's surface, fat layers, and mucous membranes such as the mouth, hair, nails, and sweat and oil glands. Our board certified dermatologists with the Benson Dermatology staff of certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants offer diagnostic acumen and expert care for the wide array of rashes, allergies, acne, infections, warts, molluscums, and growths which present themselves everyday in our practice. Benson Dermatology is here to offer the prevention, detection, and treatment of your skin concerns and diseases.

Benson Dermatology is dedicated to serving the dermatological needs of our Northshore communities, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and the Gulf South areas.

You don’t have to suffer through your skin ailments. Our focus is on a fast, accurate diagnosis and quick, lasting relief with minimal discomfort to each of our patients.* Oftentimes, just one office visit is all you need to get you living your life fully and confidently.* Contact us today to schedule your appointment at our Ponchatoula, Covington, Amite, or Walker office.

What are the signs of a suspicious growth?

Any spot which displays the following signs should be examined by a specialist:

  • Has been present for longer than a month
  • Remains irritated or bleeds
  • Has an asymmetrical shape 
  • Is itchy or inflamed
  • Has irregular borders
  • Has multiple shades of color
  • Has grown in diameter
  • Has become raised
  • Shows changing color, especially towards darker shades
  • Appears differently than the other moles on your body

Board certified dermatologists Dr. Robert Benson, Dr. April Sanchez, Dr. Falon Brown, Dr. Jessica Wilson, and Dr. Nick Frank with the expert staff of nurse practitioners and physician assistants at Benson Dermatology are committed to effective skin cancer prevention, detection, and treatment.

We are dedicated to serving the Northshore, New Orleans, and Baton Rouge. Contact us today!
