Board-Certified Topical Treatments for Common Skin Conditions


Topical Creams

Topicals are an exceptional treatment method for many common skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, signs of aging, and more. From creams and lotions to gels and serums, the board-certified dermatologists at Brentwood Dermatology utilize powerful topical treatments to help patients find relief and love the skin they are in. 


What are Topical Creams?

Topical creams are a type of topical medication that treats a certain skin condition. Topical medications are applied directly to the skin and deliver medicine to prevent or treat various skin disorders. Additionally, topical medications, including topical creams, may be used for routine skin care to maintain optimal skin health. 

Furthermore, topicals are a broad class of topical dermatological medication that encompasses a wide variety of creams, foams, gels, lotions, ointments, serums, and more.
