Learn How A Dermatologist Can Help You!
Too often, people suffer from common problems such as acne, hair issues, or issues with their nails. But more often than you think, the solution is actually easier than you think. Keep reading to learn how a Dermatologist can help you.
A dermatologist is a doctor whose expertise is in the field of skin, hair, and nails. These professionals can treat a wide variety of problems, including more serious ones such as skin cancer. Two of the most common skin problems that dermatologists treat are acne and rosacea, because these can affect anyone ranging from young to old, male or female.
Additionally, Dermatologists can treat a wide variety of nail problems, the most common of which are nail fungi. These fungi can are only be painful, but can affect the look of the nails themselves. Dermatologists also treat hair problems; whether you suffer from thinning hair, such as Alopecia, or ingrown facial hairs called pseudofolliculitis barbae, chances are they can help you.
People often think that the expertise of Dermatologists is limited to skin ailments, but in reality, their work goes far beyond that. “Dermatologists have really taken the lead in skin rejuvenation and cosmetic procedures to help maintain a youthful appearance,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, board-certified dermatologist in Austin, Texas. “It’s been the dermatologists who have been instrumental in developing new treatments for wrinkles and skin resurfacing – everything from Botox to lasers, chemical peels and dermal fillers.” In addition to the above-mentioned problems, they can even treat individuals who suffer from sweat issues, people looking for body contouring, and more.
“Some dermatologists have now specialized training in skin surgery,” says Dr. Adam Mamelak, board certified dermatologist and Mohs micrographic surgeon at Sanova Dermatology. “This training, which includes reconstructive surgery, allows us to remove moles, manage skin cancers, treat scarring, and even perform many surgical cosmetic procedures.”
Individuals in the field of dermatology don’t only help people feel better cosmetically, but also to help heal their bodies and protect them from further damage. And, as is the case with skin cancer, a Dermatologist can literally save your life by identifying and removing cancerous skin cells.
