When you have an acne breakout or some other skin condition that has negative effects on the appearance of your skin, there is always a valid health-related reason. It’s true that most people would want to get these problems fixed mainly for cosmetic reasons. Nonetheless, the best forms of care for your skin should be based on sound medical knowledge. This is where medical dermatology comes into play.
The Medical Dermatology Difference
There are literally thousands, if not millions, of spas and skin treatment operations in this country that have well-trained professionals who understand how to conduct certain skin improvement procedures. However, not all of these professionals can actually be called dermatologists. There are plenty of horror stories that you can read about somebody trusting their skin to individuals who were less than qualified to perform certain procedures.
Real dermatologists are medical doctors who have been further educated in the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders. When you trust your skin to the care of a genuine medical doctor who has also been trained in medical dermatology, the treatments for your skin conditions will actually improve your health while treating your skin condition.
Common Skin Conditions
Our staff can treat a variety of skin conditions that general cosmetic dermatology just isn’t enough to entirely get rid of. An example of these kinds of skin conditions is severe acne in fully grown adults. If you are having breakouts on a regular basis and you’re well over the age of twenty, there might be a medical condition behind your breakouts.
Eczema is another skin condition that is routinely treated with medical dermatology services. The most common symptom of eczema is an itchy, scaly and inflamed rash on the skin. This rash can appear anywhere on the body, but most often on the face, neck and arms. People with eczema are born with it, and symptoms of it are usually visible during the years of infancy.
Our medical dermatologists can treat hair and nail disorders as well, much to the surprise of many of our patients. It’s the specialized level of medical training that provides them with the understanding to do so.
