Dermatologists diagnose and treat a wide range of skin, hair, nail, and mucous membrane diseases and conditions. These can include acne, rosacea, and skin infections as well as the removal of warts, moles, and skin cancers. Dermatologists also perform various cosmetic procedures, including the treatment of photoaging, wrinkles, dark spots and leg veins. Dr. Alexis Young has over a decade of training and experience and has lectured extensively at national and local conferences. She was awarded a prestigious fellowship to study melanoma genetics in a research laboratory and has received many honors including induction into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. She has authored numerous papers published in peer-reviewed medical journals. Dr. Young is currently a Clinical Instructor in Dermatology at Columbia University Medical Center where she enjoys teaching dermatology residents. She works closely with Forest Healthcare physicians to treat acute and chronic skin problems such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. By developing a specific treatment plan that takes advantage of topical treatments, medications, and advanced technologies, Dr. Young individualizes treatment for each patient’s needs. Dr. Young is also available for cosmetic consultations, including general cosmetic skin care practices and the injection of products such as BOTOX® and volume-enhancing fillers.
Dr. Young believes in the value of skin cancer screenings for all men and women. The American Cancer Society recommends general skin cancer screenings every three years in patients between 20 and 40 years of age and yearly in patients older than 40 years. Dr. Young performs excisions and other procedures for removing skin cancers and growths. Skin biopsies are performed in the office and samples are sent to labs for analysis. If you have sun-damaged skin, it is very important to have regular checkups.
