We provide individualized care for your kids

It’s difficult to watch your child struggle physically and emotionally with a skin-related disorder. When it comes to pediatric dermatology, our practice offers comprehensive diagnostic, treatment and management services for common and complex skin conditions in children and teens.

Our pediatric dermatology providers understand that children have unique medical needs that change as they grow and mature. We treat acne, hair and nail disorders, skin infections, rashes, eczema and psoriasis with a combination of topical and oral medications, plus minimally invasive surgical procedures. We also offer laser therapy and light therapy for pigmentation disorders and vascular birthmarks, such as port wine stains and hemangiomas.

Pediatric Dermatology for Acne in Newport News

Acne is one of the most common pediatric dermatology needs. Often times parents will wait to treat acne until their child is a teenager. We suggest being proactive with acne and trying to control acne before it becomes a problem. Pediatric dermatology is more than skin deep. It is important to understand how detrimental acne can be on a child’s self-esteem. At Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Care, we focus on controlling acne from the start. Early/light acne in younger kids can be controlled with topical solutions and clinical washes. Then we evaluate medication options as children get older and their acne advances. We even have the AviClear laser that drastically reduces acne with only three treatments.

FAQ About Pediatric Dermatology

What precautions should I take to protect my child's skin during winter months?

Winter can be harsh on a child’s skin. Maintain moisture by using a thick, fragrance-free moisturizer, dress them in layers to avoid overheating, and protect exposed skin from the cold wind. If dryness persists, consult a dermatologist for personalized recommendations.

When should I be concerned about my child's persistent rash, and what could it indicate?

A persistent rash may indicate various underlying issues, from allergies to infections. Contact our office if the rash persists, worsens, or is accompanied by other symptoms such as fever or pain.

How can I differentiate between a harmless birthmark and one that needs medical attention?

Most birthmarks are harmless, but those with irregular borders, rapid growth, or changes in color may warrant medical evaluation. Contact our office to schedule an appointment if you notice any concerning changes in your child’s birthmark.

Is it normal for newborns to have baby acne, and does it require treatment?

Newborns commonly experience baby acne due to maternal hormones. This condition is temporary and generally does not require treatment. Gentle cleansing with water and mild baby soap is usually sufficient.
