Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition that appears as redness and swelling. Rosacea can cause acne or skin sensitivity. Rosacea is worsened by the sun, stress, heat, alcohol, or spicy foods. We offer a variety of effective treatments for rosacea, including IPL laser. Moderate to severe cases of rosacea may require an appointment with a provider for further evaluation and possible oral or topical prescription medication.






The appearance of skin patches that are darker than the original skin is hyperpigmentation. Melasma, sunspots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are all different types of hyperpigmentation. Melanin is produced by skin cells and is a pigment that gives the skin its color. An excess production of melanin in the skin is what causes hyperpigmentation. An increase of melanin can be caused by sun exposure, hormone changes, medications, or trauma to the skin. We offer a variety of treatments for hyperpigmentation such as topical prescriptions, skin care products, diamond glow, microneedling, and IPL or Picosure laser. At Dr. Monica Scheel Dermatology we customize a skincare regimen and treatment plan just for you.

Fungal, Yeast, and Bacterial Infections

These type of infections are caused by an overgrowth of microorganisms. A infection may appear as redness and may be accompanied by other symptoms. These infections may occur anywhere on the body and can also affect the finger and toenails. “Athlete’s foot” is a commonly known fungal infection. An overgrowth of yeast in the scalp can cause scaling and itching (seborrheic dermatitis). Bacterial infections may require a wound culture to isolate the organism to specify treatment. Schedule your focused visit today for evaluation and a treatment plan. Your treatment plan may include a skin scraping, nail trimming sample, biopsy, or culture for diagnosis. Infections are commonly treated with topical or oral medications.

Hair Loss

An accurate diagnosis is the most effective way to treat hair loss. At Dr. Monica Scheel dermatology we have in-depth knowledge about the many causes of hair loss. Hair loss can be caused by underlying disease, vitamin deficiency, hormone imbalance, or stress. At your consultation, we will create a customized treatment plan for you that may include supplements, nutrition counseling, prescription medications, blood work, scalp biopsy, steroid injections, or PRP injections. We offer Nutrafol, a specially formulated natural supplement that supports hair growth and a compounded topical Hair Density Serum at our office
