Dermatology is the specialized medical field concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders. These can include medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology fields. Skin problems can occur in anyone of any age or stage of life. In fact, statistics show that one in three Americans may suffer from some disorder of the skin at any given time. The main fields of dermatology services include:
- Medical dermatology is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that can afflict the skin, nails, and hair in patients of any age. These age groups include pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric.
- Surgical dermatology uses surgical methods to treat skin diseases. These treatments include cutting away the diseased area; cryosurgery that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the affected area; and electro destruction that uses electricity to destroy the diseased area.
- Cosmetic dermatology uses treatments to improve the appearance of the skin, hair, or nails rather than treating a disease. Cosmetic dermatology treatments can include cosmetic surgery, injectable treatments, or laser treatments.
When visiting a dermatologist, a patient will discuss his or her medical history. The doctor will then examine and diagnose the skin problem. The physician will also explain the advised course of treatment. These consultations are also part of any cosmetic procedures that a patient may be considering.
