Common Skin Conditions Q&A
Why is my skin under attack?
Your skin’s primary role is to act as a shield between you and the outside world, and it does a remarkably good job protecting you from injury, infection, and more. As with any good frontline soldier, however, battle wounds come with the territory.
Your skin is assaulted from every angle: from the elements, from bacteria, and whatever else the world has to throw at it. By putting itself in the line of fire, skin conditions can, and do, arise fairly frequently. In addition, some skin problems signal that something’s wrong on the inside, meaning the skin condition is simply a symptom of something much larger at play.
Whatever the issue, you should not take skin conditions lightly. Whether they’re an annoyance or an aesthetic problem, it bears closer study by an expert such as Dr. Amir.
What are the most common skin conditions?
There are hundreds of conditions that can affect your skin, but the most common reasons for visiting Dr. Amir are:
- Skin tags
- Skin discoloration
- Excessive sweating
When should I consider treatment for my skin conditions?
Tending to a skin condition at an early stage will make it easier to treat and minimize lasting skin damage, including scarring and discoloration. If a condition is already in a middle or later stage, the patient must immediately get treatment to prevent further skin damage and complications. We encourage you to come to us for treatment the moment you notice skin irregularities.
What should I expect during my consultation?
Next, Dr. Amir will recommend treatment options for your skin condition. He will design a treatment plan to achieve the best results. It’s important that you understand the treatment plan, so make sure to ask questions.
How are skin conditions treated?
The answer to this question depends entirely upon Dr. Amir’s diagnosis. After a thorough examination and testing, if needed, Dr. Amir reviews your treatment options.
If your skin condition is the primary problem, he generally prescribes and recommends one, or a combination of, the following:
- At-home care instructions
- Lifestyle modifications
If your skin has been infected by bacteria, fungus, or a virus, the first order of business is to get rid of the offending invader. Dr. Amir typically does this with antibiotics. While the antibiotic goes to work, Dr. Amir instructs you on how to best take care of the skin condition itself, for example through special washing or creams.
If your skin condition is a symptom of something larger, Dr. Amir treats the visible symptoms on your skin while he investigates the underlying cause in order to treat that as well.

How Much will it cost to improve my skin?
The price of treating your common skin condition(s) will depend on the extent of your treatment. Severe and complex skin conditions may require a combination of procedures, while mild skin irritation can often be resolved with less intensive interventions. Once Dr. Amir has assessed your concerns and developed your customized treatment protocol, the details of your procedure(s), including the associated costs, will be reviewed with you.

Obsessed with this place. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. Dr Amir is amazing! His attention to detail is incredible. I’ve had fillers done in the past but this is the first time I had anyone “map at my face” so to speak in order to place the injections in the proper area. Couldn’t be happier with the results and I’m looking forward to going back for Botox in and few weeks! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Excellent experience here! Staff is very nice and personable, Dr. Amir has a wonderful bedside manner. He takes the time to educate you in your concerns and walk you through the process. I was able to have a few of my concerns addressed right away at my first visit! I will definitely continue to see Dr. Amir, and refer my friends!
Dr. Amir is by far the best dermatologist you could ask for! The care and attention to detail given by this practitioner is simply superb. I would recommend this practice to absolutely anyone looking for the best. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Thank you Dr. Amir!
