What are the right reasons to consult a Dermatologist?

You will find a lot of opportunities intended for doctors to assist in providing treatment for individuals. To become a Dermatologist, you must complete a medical school education. Nonetheless, cosmetic dermatology is much easier to learn. To gain further training in the field, it’s not necessary that you have a medical school degree.

Chemical Peels: Dermatologists perform chemical peels during a procedure. When performing a chemical peel the doctor uses alpha hydroxyl acids or beta hydroxyl acids to eliminate the uppermost layer of the epidermis (also called the stratum corneum). The epidermis is the layer of skin that has fatty cells, which helps keep the skin in a firm status. The epidermis also contains an elastin-like layer known as collagen, which helps to keep the skin looking young. The skin is more wrinkled and more prone to injury when layers are taken off.

Microdermabrasion: This is a second treatment that a cosmetic dermatologist can offer. The procedure removes very small crystals in the epidermis (top coating) of the skin. They minimize wrinkles and lines that are fine. The epidermis no longer appears stiff or sagging, as well as new hair growth appears better. If this treatment is applied on a regular basis it will dramatically improve the appearance of complexion and the skin.

Laser Therapy: Most often, people who have very oily skin, acne or are counseled by their cosmetic dermatologist to undergo laser therapy to improve their appearance. Laser therapy works by using the use of light pulses to dry out and reduce the bacteria and oil that are around the surface of the skin. The skin becomes smoother and clearer. Laser therapy is typically recommended for patients with very oily or acne-prone skin, that do not show improvement after other treatments. The excessive use of lasers could result in new acne formation in some individuals.

You may wonder if dermatologists have the qualifications to perform these procedures. The American Academy of Dermatology has the list of dermatologists that are accredited. The list was compiled based on the responses of former and current patients as well as feedback from the American Academy of Dermatology. The dermatologists must satisfy certain criteria that are set by the academy to participate in the particular academy’s program.

Your general physician: Often your doctor will recommend you to a dermatologist. If perhaps you’ve healthy skin as well as good general fitness, the dermatologist will be able to refer one to a reputable cosmetic dermatologist. The general practice of your doctor is likely to provide the name of a recommended dermatologist too. In certain instances, if your physician is not sure about the specialist that you need to see, your provider may be able to give you a recommendation to some dermatology professional.

Plastic Surgeon: Many seek out a plastic surgeon to remove unneeded body hairs. The dermatologist can also treat wrinkly skin and also loose skin. Many dermatologists can perform surgery in order to improve the appearance of the skin. A dermatologist might be able to assist you in the event that your skin is losing its shape or even is prone to wrinkles. The dermatologist is not able to perform any significant work on your skin. However they may be able to refer you to an expert who can help make your skin look and really feel the most beautiful.
