Promoting Skin Health in Minneapolis
The largest organ in the human body is actually outside of it: the skin. In fact, if you were to spread out all of your skin, it would measure more than 20 square feet. As a general rule, we tend to like the look of smooth skin, but sometimes nature has a way of throwing a wrench into the works: a lesion here, a mole there, and so forth. Some of these lesions and changes are simply a natural part of the skin and the aging process, however whether they are worrisome, undesirable or troublesome, they can now be addressed at Carillon Clinic with dermatology expertise and services now available. By offering these dermatology services, we hope to make Carillon a destination for patients who require services for skin health in the Twin Cities, MN.
The services offered by Carillon Clinic fall under a large umbrella of dermatology services. We offer everything from full body mole checks to mole or lesion removal. We offer treatment for warts, teen and adult acne, rashes and more. We are able to provide convenient and comprehensive skin care by a board certified Physician’s Assistant (PA).

Dermatology Services Offered Through Carillon Clinic
Because a wide variety of skin problems can develop, we treat many skin ailments with our dermatology services at Carillon Clinic. Each of these treatments have unique techniques and benefits, depending on the issues being addressed. Among the dermatology services now offered by Carillon Clinic are the following:
Moles can sometimes feel unsightly, especially when they develop in areas not readily covered by clothing. Removing a mole can be accomplished in several ways, though the two primary means are via excision or a shave method. Both of these methods require some degree of a cut to the skin, however only one requires stitches. In some cases, lasers or extreme cold may be used to assist in mole removal, but usually a practitioner will use a topical numbing agent, such as lidocaine, to control patient discomfort. The benefits of mole removal are both aesthetic and health-related, as moles can sometimes be atypical or worse case, a melanoma.
Benign Lesion Removal
Benign lesions can develop for a variety of reasons, but many patients feel uncomfortable with them. Whether it be genetics, sun exposure, or bad luck, removing the lesion can be incredibly important to the self-esteem and self-confidence of patients.
Acne Evaluation and Treatment Recommendation
While usually considered to be a signature of teenager youth, acne can actually strike at any age. While much depends on diet and lifestyle, genetics also play a significant role in acne development. At Carillon Clinic, our dermatology services offer comprehensive acne evaluation and treatment recommendation services to all ages, keeping in mind that recommendations often change based on one’s age.

Feeling great about your skin can lead to other benefits, including a boost to self-confidence and in self-esteem. Removing a troublesome mole or benign lesion can help patients feel comfortable wearing clothing such as t-shirts or shorts. In other words, when you feel good about your skin, you think about what clothing you look good in, rather than what you might accidentally reveal. That feeling is difficult to underestimate.
