Dermatology is categorized into medical and cosmetic dermatology. The two groups play a valuable role in enhancing skin appearance and improving skin health.
Medical dermatology addresses the aspects affecting the overall appearance and health of the skin. It targets an ailment that poses a health risk and provides a suitable solution.
Medical dermatology includes treatments for conditions such as:
On the other hand, cosmetic dermatology serves patients aspiring to have a youthful appearance. It usually involves a procedure done based on a desire to look different, not a medical need.
A cosmetic dermatologist is a physician who offers skincare services purely for aesthetic reasons. They attend to people who want to look better by solving issues like uneven skin tone, hair loss, wrinkles, etc.
After completing medical school, cosmetic dermatologists undergo three years of dermatology training in their area of specialty.
Some narrow down and enhance their skills on specific procedures such as laser therapy or fillers.
Laser therapy is a technique that uses beams of light to vaporize the outer skin layer and facilitate the growth of new collagen. The skin resurfacing removes dead skin cells, eliminates acne scars, reduces wrinkles, tightens sagging skin, and kills acne-causing bacteria.
Laser hair removal is an excellent option if you want to remove unwanted hair without waxing, tweezing, or shaving. The procedure uses highly concentrated light beams directed into hair follicles and absorbed by the pigments. The procedure destroys the hair and inhibits future hair growth, but does not result in permanent hair removal.
A micro-needling procedure is performed to rectify the signs of aging. A dermatologist uses tiny needles that create wounds in the skin and deliver radiofrequency (RF) waves that address skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, acne, scarring, skin discoloration, and more by triggering the body’s natural production of collagen, elastin, and capillaries.
Getting dermal filler is a procedure designed to add volume and enhance facial fullness. It involves injecting a substance around the temples, brows, cheeks, and jaws to deliver a younger-looking appearance. The substance is also used to fill in fine lines around the eyes and mouth.
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) therapy is an all-natural solution for addressing early signs of aging and can target a variety of areas on the face. PRF treatments can also be effective in treating hair loss.
PRF is taken from your own blood and injected into the treatment areas to stimulate collagen production. It is one of the cosmetic services that is performed by board-certified dermatologists. PRF is sometimes used in combination with dermal fillers to enhance facial volume.
