Dermatologist - Erasing flaws and replacing youthful vibrancy

Skin is prone to a wide array of conditions and diseases. Ranging from acne to cancer, the work of a dermatologist is not only valuable for those seeking clearer, healthier complexions, but also invaluable for diagnosing and treating potentially life-threatening conditions. In fact, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, these skincare professionals are responsible for diagnosing and treating over 3,000 unique skin-related diseases and conditions. Whether you wish to treat your acne conditions, to reduce visible signs of aging, or to cure your chronic skin ailments, a licensed dermatologist is the solution to all skin-related ailments.

What is a Dermatologist?

dermatologist is a medical professional specializing in the treatment of your skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes, such as the nose, eyelids and inner lining of your mouth. Along with treating various conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and skin cancer, these professionals call upon their training and access to unique treatments to: 

  • Revitalize the appearance and texture of the face
  • Reduce the visibility of age spots, wrinkles and other serious signs of aging
  • Remove and test suspicious moles and freckles
  • Remove warts, skin tags and other undesirable malformations

Types of Dermatologists

Much like any other medical profession, there are several types of dermatologists capable of treating specific conditions and patients. Outside of general dermatologists, these specialists include: 

  • Cosmetic Dermatologist - While these professionals have undergone the same level of training and study as general dermatologists, they primarily focus on improving the appearance of patients rather than treating skin diseases. You'll likely find cosmetic dermatologists working alongside plastic surgeons or in a cosmetic-centric clinical practice.
  • Dermatopathologist - These dermatologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases which affect the skin, nails and hair or patients.
  • Surgical Dermatologist - These specialists primarily focus on the surgical aspect of treating skin, hair and nail diseases through the use of surgical procedures.

 

Finding the Perfect Dermatologist

While there are many elements that go into locating the perfect dermatologist for you, here are several tips to simplify your search: 

  • Choose the Right Professional - As stated above, there are several types of dermatologists. Therefore, you must select a dermatologist based upon the reason for your visit. If you're unsure, then a general dermatologist is capable of either treating your skin/hair/nails-related issues or recommending you to a specialist.
  • Check Their Credentials - Only choose a dermatologist who is licensed by your state and is board certified by the American Academy of Dermatology
  • Do Your Research - More than likely, you're visiting a dermatologist for a specific reason. Research questions you should ask and print out necessary information prior to your initial consultation. In the realm of dermatology, a little research goes a long way to securing the perfect dermatologist for your unique needs.
