A lifetime of healthy, beautiful skin starts in childhood, with a skilled dermatologist you can trust!

Kids Dermatologist in Jupiter FL Area
The appearance and health of our skin can affect every aspect of our lives, from our ability to comfortably sleep through the night to how we feel about ourselves. Skin conditions can arise at any stage of life. However, childhood skin disorders, or the symptoms that require the care of a skilled dermatologist, can negatively impact healthy development, socialization, academic progress, and overall well-being during one’s formative years.

For this reason, it’s vital for parents and caregivers to identify a skilled children’s skin specialist like Dr. Peter Vitulli, Jr. at A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Jupiter, Florida. A Board-certified dermatologist and osteopath, Dr. Vitulli understands conditions that commonly affect children and how they present in pediatric patients. But he also appreciates that children are not simply “little adults.”

We enjoy working with kids and know how to speak with them in a way that minimizes fear and instills trust. For instance, the specific words we use to talk about conditions and treatments differ from how we might describe the treatment to their parents or other adult patients. We take great care in offering highly personalized attention tailored to each patient’s needs and characteristics.

One-of-a-kind approaches for one-of-a-kind kids

Each child is special. As such, treatment revolves around a thorough skin evaluation. Many conditions that dermatologist offices treat can mimic each other. So, Dr. Vitulli uses his specialized and advanced knowledge with sophisticated diagnostics to accurately detect the root cause of symptoms, such as rashes. Accurate diagnoses support effective treatment plans, which means the prompt resolution of painful or disruptive skin conditions, as well as a lasting treatment option that doesn’t merely “mask” or resolve symptoms (rather than the condition or root cause itself).

Dermatologists are equipped to prevent, diagnose, manage, and treat more than 3,000 diseases affecting the skin, hair, and nails. Just a small glimpse into the conditions that we commonly address among our pediatric patients include:
  • Birthmarks, such as strawberry hemangiomas
  • Childhood eczema (often atopic dermatitis)
  • Food allergies or other allergens that manifest as hives or other skin symptoms
  • Highly contagious warts
  • Adolescent or teenage onset acne
  • Rashes
Of course, this skims the surface of the areas of expertise and related services offered in our specialty center in Jupiter. Call 561-427-2000 to schedule your appointment for a lifetime of healthy skin and well-being. We look forward to meeting you!
