Pediatric Dermatology Services

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Newport Beach, our board-certified dermatologists provide comprehensive pediatric dermatology services to care for your child's delicate skin, hair, and nails. We understand that children have unique skin concerns and require a gentle, compassionate approach. Our skilled team is dedicated to helping your child achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful skin from infancy through adolescence.

Common Pediatric Skin Conditions We Treat

Our experienced dermatologists are well-versed in diagnosing and treating a wide range of pediatric skin conditions, including:

  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Warts
  • Molluscum contagiosum
  • Birthmarks (hemangiomas, port-wine stains)
  • Hives and other rashes
  • Fungal infections (ringworm, tinea)
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Hair loss (alopecia)

We understand that seeing your child experience skin issues can be concerning and stressful. Our goal is to provide prompt, effective treatment and education to help your child find relief and prevent future flare-ups.

Gentle, Age-Appropriate Treatments

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we tailor our treatments to meet the specific needs of our pediatric patients. We use gentle, age-appropriate techniques and products to ensure your child's comfort and safety. Some of our pediatric dermatology treatments include:

Topical Medications

We may prescribe topical creams, ointments, or lotions to treat various skin conditions. We carefully select products that are safe and effective for children's delicate skin.

Oral Medications

In some cases, oral medications such as antibiotics or antihistamines may be necessary to treat more severe or widespread skin conditions. We will carefully assess your child's needs and provide thorough instructions on proper usage and potential side effects.


Cryotherapy, or freezing, is a quick and effective treatment for warts and molluscum contagiosum. This procedure involves applying liquid nitrogen to the lesion, causing it to blister and fall off over time.

Education and Prevention

We believe in the power of education and prevention. We will work with you and your child to develop a personalized skincare routine, provide guidance on proper sun protection, and offer tips for managing and preventing future skin issues.

Creating a Positive Experience for Your Child

We understand that visiting the dermatologist can be intimidating for children. That's why we strive to create a warm, welcoming environment that puts your child at ease. Our friendly staff, colorful exam rooms, and gentle bedside manner help make your child's visit a positive experience.

We take the time to listen to your child's concerns, explain procedures in age-appropriate terms, and offer praise and encouragement throughout the visit. Our goal is to foster a trusting relationship with your child, so they feel comfortable and confident in our care.

The Importance of Regular Pediatric Skin Checks

Just like adults, children should have regular skin checks to monitor for any concerning changes or growths. We recommend that all children receive a baseline skin examination by a board-certified dermatologist, especially if they have a family history of skin cancer or numerous moles.

During a pediatric skin check, we will carefully examine your child's skin from head to toe, looking for any unusual moles, birthmarks, or other lesions. We will also provide education on sun safety and skin self-exams, empowering your child to take an active role in their skin health.
