YOU AND YOUR DERMATOLOGIST


When it comes to the health of your skin, working with a dermatologist is one of the most important relationships that you will have in your life. This skin care specialist will be one of the main players in ensuring your physical and emotional well-being during the process, and will help you not just find solutions to your problems, but will guide you toward making healthier decisions about your skin. That’s why, when looking for a dermatologist, you don’t want to take the selection of your doctor lightly. Although the search process may feel frustrating at times, if you put in the effort and the energy into finding the right dermatologist for your needs, you are likely to achieve significantly better results.

What Is a Dermatologist?

A dermatologist is a doctor specializing in the treatment of nails, skin, hair, and mucous membranes (inside the mouth, inside the nose, and the eyelids). It is a specialty that requires significant expertise and knowledge because any mistakes won’t just negatively impact the patient’s health, but could impact their self esteem as well. This is why, when looking for a dermatologist, you want to ensure that you’ve found someone who is experienced and also truly cares about the well being and self esteem of their patients.

Overall, a dermatologist can treat over 3,000 different skin conditions, including rosacea, psoriasis, skin cancer, eczema, nail infections, hair loss, and acne. They can also help patients reduce the signs of wrinkles, age spots, or other problems that show up with aging skin. A dermatologist can help you get rid of acne and acne scars, as well as help you find ways to deal with psoriasis.

Dermatologists are trained to go beyond diagnosis of problems and writing of prescriptions, but can also offer professional skin care treatments. They may inject wrinkle fillers, dermal fillers or botulinum toxin into the skin to reduce wrinkles. Dermatologists also regularly provide cryotherapy, which is a procedure to remove warts or age spots. A dermatologist can go beyond improving the appearance of skin, and will surgically remove or provide treatment for skin cancers that can be life threatening.

Forming a long lasting relationship with your dermatologist is a very rewarding experience. Not only are you assured of the most professional help you can find but also you have found a friend!
