Complete Skin and Hair Care Solutions

Dermatology is an area of medicine that focuses on medical conditions affecting the skin. Cosmetic dermatology – also known as aesthetic Dermatology – is a subspecialty within dermatology that helps patients improve their skin, hair, and nails for cosmetic (aesthetic) purposes, rather than for health reasons.

Our Dermatology consultation service focuses on diagnosing and treating disorders related to the skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes. Whether you’re dealing with acne, eczema, hair loss, or seeking cosmetic enhancement, our dermatologists are here to offer personalized care and guidance and provide comprehensive care for all your skin and hair concerns, helping you achieve healthier, more radiant skin and hair.

Role of a Dermatologist:

The role of a dermatologist is multifaceted, encompassing both medical and cosmetic aspects of skin, hair, nail, and mucous membrane health. Dermatologists are specialized medical doctors who undergo extensive training in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of various dermatological conditions. Here’s an elaborate overview of their role:

  • Diagnosis and Treatment of Skin Disorders: Dermatologists are experts in diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin conditions, including but not limited to acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, fungal infections, and skin cancer. They utilize their knowledge of dermatopathology (the study of skin diseases at a microscopic level) to accurately diagnose and manage these conditions.
  • Management of Hair and Scalp Disorders: Hair loss, alopecia, scalp infections, and other hair and scalp disorders fall within the purview of dermatologists. They employ various diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities to address these concerns, ranging from topical medications and oral supplements to advanced therapies like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and hair transplantation.
  • Preventive Skin Care: Dermatologists emphasize the importance of preventive skin care to maintain skin health and prevent future issues. They educate patients on sun protection, skincare routines, and lifestyle modifications to minimize the risk of skin cancer, premature aging, and other dermatological conditions.
  • Skin Cancer Screening and Management: Dermatologists play a critical role in skin cancer detection and management. They conduct thorough skin examinations to identify suspicious lesions, perform biopsies for diagnostic confirmation, and develop individualized treatment plans for patients diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, and other skin cancers.
  • Allergy and Patch Testing: Dermatologists may conduct allergy testing and patch testing to identify triggers for allergic skin conditions such as contact dermatitis and urticaria (hives). By pinpointing allergens, they can recommend avoidance measures and appropriate treatment options.
  • Surgical Dermatology Interventions: Dermatologists are skilled in performing various surgical procedures to treat skin conditions and lesions. This may involve excisional surgery for the removal of skin cancer, benign growths, or cysts, as well as Mohs micrographic surgery, a specialized technique for precise removal of skin cancer while sparing healthy tissue.
  • Pediatric Dermatology: Dermatologists also provide specialized care for pediatric patients, addressing skin conditions specific to infants, children, and adolescents. This includes eczema, diaper rash, acne, birthmarks, and genetic skin disorders.
  • Aesthetic /Cosmetic Dermatology Procedures: In addition to medical dermatology, many dermatologists offer cosmetic procedures aimed at enhancing the appearance of the skin and addressing aesthetic concerns. These may include Botox injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser therapy, microdermabrasion, and more. Dermatologists approach cosmetic treatments with a focus on natural-looking results and patient safety.
