When Do I Need A Cosmetic Dermatologist?

Doctors have numerous options for treating patients. To be a Dermatologist is to complete a medical school education. Nonetheless, cosmetic dermatology is much easier to learn. Therefore, a medical school education is not necessary to gain additional training in this field.

Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are performed by a dermatologist in an operation. In a chemical peel the doctor will use alpha hydroxyl acids or beta hydroxyl acids in order to remove the topmost layer of the epidermis (also known as the stratum corneum). This skin layer is made up of fatty cells which help to maintain the skin’s firmness. The epidermis is also the collagen layer, a layer of protection, which helps to keep the skin youthful looking. If the layers are removed it appears as if the face is older and more susceptible to being damaged.

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is another treatment that a cosmetic dermatologist can offer. The procedure removes very small deposits in the epidermis (top covering) of the skin. The crystals help reduce wrinkly skin and lines that are fine. The epidermis appears less stiff and sagging, and hair growth appears more attractive. When this treatment is used on a regular basis it will dramatically improve the appearance of skin tone and skin.

Laser Therapy: Many people who suffer from oily skin, or acne, receive laser therapy suggested by their dermatologists for cosmetic purposes to improve their complexion. Laser therapy works by using pulses of light which dry out and destroy the particular bacteria and oil around the skin’s surface. It leaves the skin smoother and clearer. Laser therapy is usually suggested for patients suffering from very oily skin or acne, who have not seen improvement with other treatments. Excessive laser treatment could result in the formation of new acne in certain individuals.

Although dermatologists can perform any of these procedures, you might be wondering if they’re competent to do it. The American Academy of Dermatology has an extensive list of dermatologists who are certified. The list was compiled based on the actual responses of former and current patients and feedback from the American Academy of Dermatology. The dermatologists have to meet the requirements set by the academy in order to participate in the academy’s programs.

The General Practitioner: Most of the time your doctor may refer you to the dermatologist. If you’ve healthy skin as well as general fitness, your dermatologist should indeed be able to refer one to a qualified cosmetic dermatologist.
