We’ve all been preached to about the dangers of unprotected sun exposure: melanoma, skin cancer, wrinkles, sun spots/liver spots, rough skin texture, freckles, sunburn, hyperpigmentation, (the list goes on and on). One thing you may not have heard is that sunscreen, in addition to preventing skin conditions like those listed above; can also help treat skin conditions that increase photo sensitivity—like rosacea.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta welcomes dermatologist, Dr. Ashley R. Curtis to our staff! We are excited to have Dr. Curtis’ specialized knowledge of dermatology (i.e.- skin cancer, acne, psoriasis, eczema, etc.) as well as female hair-loss. Dr. Curtis’ unique medical perspective will further enhance DAA’s dermatologist and provider team.
Dr. Curtis joins us from Winston-Salem, N.C. where she held the Chief Resident position at Wake Forest University Department of Dermatology. When not practicing, Dr. Curtis used her time in North Carolina to write and review articles for the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology and various publications for dermatology news. She also enjoyed volunteering time at Wake Forest to help with skin cancer screenings and community care clinics. We look forward to reading more of Dr. Curtis’ articles and witnessing her exemplary patient care.
Dr. Curtis is now accepting appointments and will begin seeing patients July 1st. If you would like to know more about Dr. Ashley Curtis, we invite you to post your questions on DAA’s Facebook and Twitter pages. We’re dedicated to fulfilling your skin care needs- head to toe, and would love to hear from you!
DAA’s, Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, is offering April specials for Rosacea Awareness Month. Rosacea is a skin condition marked by reddish pink, bumpy patches of skin, raised puss filled bumps, or inflamed blood vessels. It commonly occurs on or around the nose, cheeks, eyelids, chin, and forehead. Occasionally, the condition will become visible on the neck or chest. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms contact Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
