Did you know that melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer? Although it is less common than other forms of skin cancer it can spread quickly and develop anywhere on the skin. The disease is caused from overexposure to sun or ultraviolet radiation, especially within people that have fair skin.
There are five major signs/symptoms to look for when determining if you may have some form of Melanoma. These are known as the ABCDE’s of Melanoma and they include:
A-Asymmetry: Early forms of melanoma are asymmetrical, meaning that you cannot draw a line down the middle and have equal parts on each side.
B-Borders: Uneven borders with irregularities or blurs.
C-Color: Varying shades of brown, blue or black.
D-Diameter (size): Melanoma tend to be larger than normal moles, ones the size of a pencil eraser are something that you should look at closely.
E-Evolving: Any changes in the size, shape, color, or feel.
If you are unsure if any of these signs pertain to you or notice that some might, do not hesitate to set up an appointment immediately at the Neiman Dermatology Building.

Eczema is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by itchy red bumps on the skin. The skin starts out rather itchy (progressively becoming worse), thereafter developing into a rash. The rash tends to be very dry and scaly in appearance, but is not contagious.
The exact cause of Eczema is unknown and can arise at any age. It is most prevalent in infants and young adults. It was recently reported that it is on the rise as the biggest skin disease for children nowadays. In older sufferers, eczema typically occurs on the hands or feet, but may appear anywhere on the body. Certain foods, allergens, or bacteria have been known to all be contributors to the condition.
Although there may be no cure for eczema, understanding certain irritants is crucial in prevention or re occurrence. If you believe you may be experiencing eczema contact our office at 716-688-0020 today. The earlier treatment is made, the more manageable the condition.
With dreadlocks rise in popularity, it is an increasingly common hairstyle to see nowadays. Many famous actors, musicians, and athletes wear the hairstyle and it is a big part of their look. As prominent as dreadlocks may be though, they do come at a price.
The process of this trendy look can be detrimental to the hair follicles because over time it twists, mats, and tangles the hair. This in turn, causes the rise of additional hair loss, dandruff, and other scalp conditions. This damage can be irreversible and lower the longevity of the hair follicles by years accelerating to hair that is in poor condition.
One of the most common forms of hair loss that can occur is traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is a gradual form of hair loss that occurs when hair follicles in the scalp become irritated due to a continual pulling force. This causes loss of hair in patchy areas, usually residing in the front of the hairline and behind the ears. Other hairstyles that place a constant strain on the scalp such as braids, extensions, and even ponytails can also be responsible for the condition.
Although traction alopecia is categorized as a temporary form of hair loss, it can be permanent depending on the amount of damage done to the follicles. If you believe you may be suffering from traction alopecia give our office a call right away as early diagnosis is important.
About 50 million Americans have tattoos – including about 40% of adults between ages 26 and 40. Tattoos have been a part of mainstream culture for several decades, and are popular amongst virtually everyone.
However, the rates of tattoo regret are significant, with about 1 in 4 people wishing they could remove their ink. For people wanting to remove their unwanted tattoos, laser tattoo removal is the only effective method that doesn’t cause scarring.
Laser tattoo removal has been growing in demand alongside tattoo trends, and the technology has greatly improved over the past 20 years. The Neiman Dermatology Building has always been at the forefront of bringing the best in laser treatments and skincare to patients in Buffalo.
The Astanza Trinity is the world’s most powerful multi-wavelength system for tattoo removal – which means it can remove the full spectrum of ink colors faster than any other laser. Traditional laser tattoo removal systems have weaknesses, and are not able to remove stubborn ink colors such as green, blue, red, or resistant black.
The Trinity is the first system of its kind to combine high levels of peak power (for better destruction of ink) with three full-powered laser wavelengths, each of which targets a portion of the color spectrum. This combination of high power and wavelength versatility allows our staff at the Neiman Dermatology Building to remove colorful tattoos better than anyone else in Western New York.
Laser tattoo removal works by sending light energy into the dermal layer of the skin where tattoo ink particles are trapped. As the laser light penetrates the skin, the ink particles absorb the light and instantly shatter. The tattoo is visibly lightened as the body’s lymphatic system removes the destroyed ink particles following the treatment.
Due to the fact that the Trinity system at the Neiman Dermatology Building provides a higher peak of power with each pulse, more ink is shattered with each treatment session with less trauma to the surrounding skin. Patients treated with the Trinity see their tattoo vanish in fewer sessions.
Trinity tattoo removal treatments are a great option for patients with resistant ink colors that have not been able to be completely removed by other lasers. The experts at the Neiman Dermatology Building can assess your tattoo and decide the right course of treatment based on your unique skin tone and tattoo ink colors to give you the fastest removal results possible.
The Neiman Dermatology Building provides free consultations to patients considering laser tattoo removal. To schedule yours or learn more, call 716-688-0020 today.
