Cosmetic Dermatologists are medical doctors with special training to treat skin certain dermatologic conditions cosmetically. In some cases, patients want unsightly skin growths removed such as warts, moles or raised rashes. In other cases patients want other cosmetic procedures, which include Botox, chemical peels dermabrasion, collagen injections, laser and cryotherapy.
Cosmetic Dermatologists received the same education as medical doctors with a Residency program in dermatology for at least 3 years. They train in medical procedures that can improve the appearance of the skin by resolving skin flaws such as acne, scars and wrinkles. Some Cosmetic Dermatologists perform liposuction, facial firming, eyelid surgery and brow lifts. In addition to the procedures mentioned, Medical News Today describe some common Cosmetic Dermatology procedures below:
Biopsies: Skin biopsies are primarily carried out to diagnose or rule out certain skin conditions.
Chemical peels: A chemical solution is applied to the skin. It causes a layer of skin to peel off, leaving a layer of regenerated skin underneath that is typically smoother.
Dermatologists use this procedure to treat sun-damaged skin and some types of acne.
Cosmetic injections: Wrinkles, scarring, and lost facial fullness can be temporarily reduced with injections. A dermatologist can inject Botox or fillers such as Collagen and fat, during an office visit. Results of this treatment tend to last for a few months.
Cryotherapy: This is a quick and common form of treatment for many benign skin conditions, such as warts.
Dermabrasion: Using a high-speed rotating brush, a dermatologist removes the top layer of skin, surgically eroding scar tissue, fine wrinkles, tattoos, and potentially precancerous skin patches.
Hair removal and restoration: Hair loss can be treated with hair transplantation or surgery to the scalp. Unwanted body hair can be removed with laser hair epilation, or electrolysis that destroys hair follicles.
Laser surgery: Dermatologists can use a special light beam to treat a variety of skin complaints. These include tumors, warts, moles, tattoos, birthmarks, scars, wrinkles, and unwanted hair.
Vein therapy: Superficial leg veins are small, dilated surface veins. They are also known as spider veins and are often removed for cosmetic and medical reasons.
