When Do I Need A Dermatologist?

Doctors have numerous choices to treat patients. A degree from a medical school is necessary to become a Dermatologist, however cosmetic dermatology requires shorter time to master. Thus, a medical school education is not necessary to obtain additional education in this field.

Chemical Peels: A dermatologist performs chemical peels in a treatment. When performing a chemical peel the dermatologist will employ alpha hydroxyl acids or beta hydroxyl acids in order to remove the topmost layer of the epidermis (also known as the stratum corneum). This layer of skin contains fat cells that help keep the skin firm. The epidermis also contains the collagen layer, a layer of protection, which helps to keep the skin looking young. The skin is more wrinkled and more susceptible to damage as the layers are removed.

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is another treatment that a cosmetic dermatologist can offer. This process removes tiny deposits in the epidermis (top coating) of the skin. These crystals minimize wrinkly skin and also wrinkles. The epidermis is no longer as tight and dull and hair growth looks healthier. This treatment can dramatically improve the appearance and feel on the skin when it’s done on a regular basis.

Laser Therapy: Many individuals with oily skin, or acne, undergo laser therapy suggested by their cosmetic dermatologists to improve their appearance. Laser therapy works by using the use of light pulses to dry out and reduce the oil and bacteria on the surface of the skin. It leaves the skin cleaner and more clear. Laser therapy is often recommended for patients with very oily or acne-prone skin, who do not see improvement after other treatments. For some patients, too much laser therapy can lead to the actual growth of acne.

You may wonder if dermatologists have the qualifications to perform most of these procedures. The American Academy of Dermatology offers an accredited list of dermatologists. The American Academy of Dermatology has gotten reviews coming from individuals as well as responses from former patients. The list was developed from the data provided by these people.

Your General Physician: Many times, your general practitioner may refer one to a dermatologist. If perhaps you have a healthy skin as well as general fitness, the dermatologist ought to be competent to recommend you to a good cosmetic dermatologist.

In certain instances, if the doctor isn’t sure of the doctor you need to consult the doctor, they may be able to provide you with a referral to a dermatology professional.
