When Do You Need A Dermatologist?

Doctors have numerous options for treating patients. A degree from a medical school is required to become a Dermatologist, however cosmetic dermatology requires shorter time to master. To gain further training in this area, it’s not required to have an medical degree.

Chemical Peels Chemical peels are carried out by a dermatologist in a procedure. The doctor will use alpha hydroxyl acids (or beta hydroxyl acids) to remove the epidermis’ uppermost layer (also called the stratum corneum). This skin layer is made up of fat cells that help keep the skin firm. The epidermis has a layer of collagen that is protective that keeps your skin looking youthful. The skin gets wrinkled and prone to injury when the layers are removed.

Microdermabrasion: This is a second treatment that a dermatologist who is a cosmetic is able to perform. This process removes small crystals in the epidermis (top coating) of your skin. These crystals reduce wrinkly skin and also lines that are fine. The epidermis is no longer stiff or sagging, as well as growth of hair appears healthier. This kind of treatment can drastically enhance the appearance and the texture of your skin if it is performed regularly.

Laser Therapy: Often, people who have very oily skin area, acne or are recommended by their dermatologist to undergo laser therapy in order to improve their appearance. Laser therapy works by using the use of light pulses to dry up and break down the oil and bacteria on the skin’s surface. It leaves the skin smoother and clearer. Patients with oily or acne-prone skin may want to consider laser therapy. In certain patients, overuse of laser therapy can lead to the growth of acne.
