Treatment & Services
Dermatologists treat disorders of the skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes. There are many reasons why
someone will seek care from a dermatologist, such as a skin tag, troublesome mole, or a chronic rash that
just won’t go away. Dermatologists can also diagnose and treat conditions like eczema, rosacea, acne, and
psoriasis. Additionally, they can check patients for skin cancer by performing biopsies on questionable
patches of skin.
However, some patients go to the dermatologist purely for aesthetic reasons. Dermatologists can provide
cosmetic services like dermal fillers, Botox, chemical peels, and laser surgery to remove wrinkles, scars,
and unwanted hair. They can also perform certain kinds of facelifts and blepharoplasty to eliminate
Dermatologists often provide new patients with a full skin examination to check for problems and get an
idea of the patient’s condition. During this exam, they’ll look for issues and then decide what the next
course of action should be.
