EPILUMINESCENCE (WITH IMAGE RECORDING)
Epiluminescence or dermatoscopy is a non-invasive technique for the diagnosis of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. It is based on the use of an optical instrument called a dermatoscope, which allows for observation of structures not visible to the naked eye. A profile of all the skin lesions of the individual patient is formed, providing data for an accurate diagnosis of pigmentary and non-pigmentary neoformations. It is a technique that the dermatologist may use when examining moles, which must be carried out at periodic intervals determined by the specialist, without ever allowing more than one year elapse between visits.
This is a dermatological surgical technique that is based on using an electric tool capable of cutting and coagulating. It is generally used for the removal of skin lesions such as verrucae, warts, and soft fibroids, and it is carried out under local anaesthesia.
A technique employed in different branches of medicine based on the use of liquid nitrogen. In dermatology, it is used to remove small skin lesions such as warts, birthmarks, and hyperpigmentation. Liquid nitrogen causes a cold burn resulting in cellular necrosis, and the formation of a furuncle (blister) which generally heals in about 15 days.
A dermatological surgical technique that may require local anaesthesia. It allows for the removal of skin lesions using a variety of instruments, chosen by the dermatologist and adapted to the various pathologies and to the individual patient. It can be combined with diathermocoagulation. It is generally used for the removal of seborrheic keratoses and soft fibroids.
Performed following an allergy examination by a dermatologist, they allow to identify any contact allergies. It tests for the main allergens that one comes into contact with in everyday life, through patches applied to the back that are read after 48 and 72 hours, or according to the specific needs of the individual patient. Patch tests can also be performed to target specific substances. They can be performed on both adults and children. The patient should avoid all activities that could result in detachment of the patches, such as vigorous exercise and showering. In the week prior to treatment, and for the whole duration of the examination, the patient will not be able to take cortisone or antihistamines. One should also avoid anti-inflammatories and painkillers, unless absolutely necessary.
Phototherapy is based on the use of equipment that artificially reproduces ultraviolet rays and simulates the beneficial effects of the sun. Prescribed by a dermatological specialist, this therapeutic method uses UVB rays for the non-surgical and non-pharmacological treatment of numerous dermatological diseases including psoriasis, vitiligo, pruritus, atopic dermatitis and skin lymphomas. A state-of-the-art lamp allows for irradiation of the entire skin surface in sessions of brief duration. The new technology makes it possible to administer the appropriate dose of UVB in a very short time, enabling the patient to undergo brief but highly effective sessions. The therapeutic programme is determined by the dermatologist on the basis of the pathology, and can be programmed also around the patient's commitments as far as possible. It is a treatment that, when carried out consistently, leads to an improvement in chronic illnesses, reducing or even completely eliminating the use of medications. Combined with balneotherapy, it provides long-lasting and satisfying results that will be seen some time after the end of the treatment.
