Getting to Know Your Dermatologist

Dermatologists are popularly known for treating common skin problems such as acne, scars, and age spots. Yet, did you know that there’s more to these conditions that a dermatologist could actually handle? Find out below!

Education, Training, and Experience of a Dermatologist

By and large, a dermatologic surgeon needs to finish medical school and a required internship. Afterwards, specialized education should be undertaken — mostly in the form of residency training with a core curriculum focusing on cosmetic, therapeutic, and reconstructive treatments of conditions involving the skin and its surrounding structures.

On a whole, a dermatologic surgeon could assess, diagnose, and treat the following:

  • pathologic conditions and disorders involving the skin, hair, nails, veins, and skin tissues

  • cosmetic treatment of skin

  • skin damaged by sun exposure

  • malignant and benign skin tumors and growths

Apart from the training and experience, a qualified dermatologic surgeon should also be board-certified.
