At American Skin Institute, we are dedicated to diagnosing and treating a wide range of nail disorders, providing specialized care to restore the health and appearance of your nails. Nail disorders can include fungal infections, psoriasis, lichen planus, ingrown nails, melanonychia, and other conditions that affect the nail’s structure, color, or texture. Melanonychia, characterized by dark pigmentation in the nail, can be benign or indicate a more serious condition, such as melanoma. Our board-certified dermatologists conduct comprehensive evaluations to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your nail issues.

Our treatment options are tailored to each patient’s specific needs and may include topical or oral antifungal medications for fungal infections, corticosteroids or other therapies for inflammatory conditions, and minor surgical procedures for ingrown nails. For melanonychia, we conduct thorough assessments to determine if the pigmentation is benign or requires further investigation, potentially including biopsy. Additionally, we offer advanced treatments such as laser therapy for stubborn nail infections. Our goal is to alleviate discomfort, improve nail appearance, and prevent recurrence of the disorder.

With our expertise in dermatology and a patient-centered approach, you can trust the American Skin Institute to provide effective and compassionate care for all your nail concerns. We are committed to helping you achieve healthy, beautiful nails and enhancing your overall well-being. Schedule a consultation with us today to discuss your nail health and explore the best treatment options for your needs.
