Dermatologists specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, managing, and treating skin, hair, and nail conditions and diseases for individuals of all ages. On average, a highly-trained and experienced dermatologist can identify over 3,000 skin conditions and diseases. These include acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and skin cancers, among many others.

Furthermore, our experienced dermatologists are also skilled at helping patients address cosmetic concerns by turning the clock back on wrinkles, reducing the appearance of scars and discoloration through effective cosmetic treatments.

Yes, a dermatologist is a certified and licensed physician. Generally, an individual has to undergo 12 years of schooling and training to become a dermatologist. This includes four years attaining a Bachelor’s degree, four years of medical school, one year doing an internship, and a minimum of three years in residency.

If at any point you have a significant problem with your skin, hair, or nails, it is best to visit a board-certified dermatologist for a professional evaluation and diagnosis.

In most cases, you can benefit from the qualified advice and comprehensive training of a dermatologist, as they are uniquely trained to analyze the differences between normal and abnormal skin, hair, and nails. Additionally, they are experts at spotting potential problems and can diagnose a multitude of conditions ranging from minor to life-threatening.

When you are suffering from a troublesome skin, hair, or nail condition, a board-certified dermatologist, such as those at the Center for Surgical Dermatology, can improve your quality of life and ensure you look and feel your best by effectively treating the problem.

Furthermore, dermatologists are a great resource for learning how to prevent skin, hair, and nail problems. For example, they can teach you how to protect yourself from the sun to avoid skin cancer and premature aging of the skin, educate you about which hairstyles can contribute to hair loss, and counsel you on the best way to prevent nail fungus and grow stronger nails.

For example, most health insurance companies will cover preventive and medically necessary treatments, such as skin cancer screenings and removal. On the other hand, they generally do not cover cosmetic treatments, like fillers and Botox, as these are completely elective.

Before you schedule a dermatology appointment, we recommend that you consult with your insurance provider to better understand the type of dermatology treatments covered under your individual healthcare plan.
