Focusing on anything from ear cleanings to tonsil removal, Valeri Roth has branched out, offering an array of potentially life-changing services.

Providing our clients with the latest laser technology and medical skin care, she is able to help those suffering from varying skin conditions. Whether by reducing surface wrinkles or removing a possible malignant lesion, it’s important to take care of your skin — regardless of your age.

What Exactly Is Dermatologic ENT?

As mentioned, otolaryngologists specialize in ears, nose and throat but can also address a wide range of skin conditions. From acne to wrinkles, scars to cancerous lesions, it’s important to choose the right procedure based on your medical or cosmetic needs.

Introducing state-of-the-art technology, we now offer skin rejuvenating services. Whether you want to remove an unwanted tattoo or correct uneven pigment, we can help.

Although there are plenty of cosmetic services available, such as helping you correct frown lines, crow’s feet and even remove unwanted hair, some procedures are much more critical. If you have noticed a skin lesion of any kind, whether it is cancerous or benign, it’s important to have it assessed.

Addressing Abnormal Lesions
Put simply, a lesion is any superficial growth that appears abnormal in comparison to surrounding tissue. These lesions are then categorized as either primary or secondary. In many cases, for instance, someone may notice an abnormal lesion on their nose after years of sun exposure. An abnormal-looking mole is another example that could indicate a possibly life-threatening disease.

Although surface lesions are generally most noticeable, issues can also arise within the oral cavity. Since lesions come in all shapes, sizes and even colors, it’s important to take a proactive approach, to reach an accurate diagnosis. Based on further testing, removal may be necessary, followed by reconstructive repair.

As you can imagine, cancer is often the first thought that comes to mind. Although most lesions are often benign, why take a risk? These types of worrisome lesions can be swiftly and efficiently removed, ensuring optimal health and peace of mind.

In fact, if you or your dentist notice an oral lesion, you should have it checked immediately because early intervention for oral cancer is critical. The five-year survival rate for oral cancer when diagnosed early is 75 percent — compared to just 20 percent when diagnosed late.
