Comprehensive skincare for patients aged 18 and below.
Taking care of young skin is crucial to help ensure a lifetime of healthy skin. As the largest organ of the body, the skin is affected by a vast array of bodily functions, and visually exhibits the state of health of the body.
While young skin is incredibly resilient, it is still susceptible to many of the same perils that other bodily organ tissues are vulnerable to, including pitting, scarring, inflammation, discoloration, dehydration, and much more. To help avoid lifelong effects, swift diagnosis and treatment are necessary.
Diagnosing and treating pediatric skin conditions is central to our mission at Texas Dermatology Specialists. That is why we offer comprehensive pediatric dermatology care that covers skin, hair, and nails.
