Treat your child’s skin conditions or illnesses with a pediatric dermatologist
A pediatric dermatologist isn't typically the first healthcare professional parents call when their child has a skin condition; usually they speed-dial the pediatrician. However, a pediatric dermatologist is the best physician to treat illnesses and conditions involving your child's skin. At the Calabasas Dermatology Center, we offer care specifically tailored for children and adolescents.
Our pediatric dermatologists are highly skilled in treating embarrassing skin conditions that affect your child's appearance and self-esteem. We regularly treat a number of skin conditions common in children at our dermatology clinic.
Common skin conditions in children
Acne is one of the most frequent skin conditions treated at our Calabasas dermatology clinic. Our pediatric dermatologists are skilled at choosing the best therapy to tame and control acne outbreaks and reduce the chance of scarring.
Warts can be painful and embarrassing. Our pediatric dermatologists can remove them and minimize the potential for spreading.
Eczema is an intractable condition that can affect any area of the body. Pediatric dermatologists have a wide range of therapies at their disposal to treat this condition.
