Dr. Ken Landow: A Leader In Las Vegas Dermatology
Dermatology For The 21st Century
Here at Skin Essentials we take pride in offering you a convenient and easily accessible facility for your entire cosmetic and skin care needs.
Long before cosmetic issues invaded dermatology’s landscape, our specialty revolved around improving skin diseases ranging from diaper rash to cradle cap and childhood eczema. Adolescents remain prone to acne, warts and changing moles. More mature adults suffer from a variety of rashes to changing moles and skin cancer – basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma being the most common types. Of course psoriasis, rosacea, a variety of eczemas caused by allergies, dry skin and excessive irritation and of course melanoma may strike almost any age group. We still treat all of these disorders and others running the gamut from dandruff to sexually transmitted diseases, drug rashes and dry, itchy skin.
Additionally we provide routine skin examinations to detect the earliest signs of skin cancer. Our desert climate predisposes to pre-cancerous actinic keratoses that resolve when frozen with liquid nitrogen. Keeping current with this therapy prevents progression to more potentially serious skin cancers: invasive basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas.
We are in the midst of an epidemic of malignant melanoma. At times related to a history of sunburns, melanoma may also occur for unknown reasons. A full body examination may detect these lesions at the earliest possible moment and potentially interrupt the progression into a more serious, possibly deadly disease. For those at risk a yearly examination seems wise

Dermal fillers restore a youthful appearance to the skin by minimizing lines and wrinkles while smoothing unwanted folds and depressions.
