A Dermatologist Can Precisely Diagnose Your Condition and Tailor Treatment
Identify Issues Early
Dermatologists specialize in diagnosing and treating skin cancer. Early detection can make a significant difference in your prognosis.
Address Chronic Conditions
Many patients don't realize they are suffering with chronic skin conditions. A dermatologist can identify the cause of dry, itchy, or flaking skin and provide stronger, more targeted treatment options.
Improve Your Appearance
In many cases, you can achieve dramatic aesthetic results after a single appointment to the dermatologist. Skin treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and skin rejuvenation, can take years off your appearance.

Do dermatologists use any special tools?
As Specialists, Dermatologists Have the Right Tools for the Job
With so many types of treatments available, it is no surprise that there are a wide range of tools used to enhance your skin. From lasers to derma rollers, a trained dermatologist will know the proper tool to use for the treatment you require.
Microdermabrasion, for example, is often performed using a diamond-tipped wand intended to remove the top layer of damaged skin to allow healthy tissue to emerge.
One of the most common tools used for skin treatments are lasers. There are a variety of types of lasers available on the market today, including ablative, fractional, and blue LED. Different types of lasers can address issues with your skin, providing results for everything from wrinkles to acne scars.
"Your skin is constantly protecting you... When you take care of your skin, you're helping your skin do its job. And taking care of your skin today will help prevent future problems, like wrinkles and even skin cancer. Good skin care also has tremendous social and mental benefits."
