Who Are Dermatologists?

Dermatologists are the medical doctors who specialize in treating our skin, hair, nails and issues related to these organs. This also includes the linings of the mouth, nose, and eyelids.
Dermatology has four branches:

  1. Medical Dermatology
  2. Cosmetic Dermatology
  3. Surgical Dermatology
  4. Dermatopathology.

However, a dermatologist has options to choose any one of the specialities above.

  • Medical Dermatology: The preventive type. In this, the dermatologist will guide you about the diseases that can affect the skin, hair and nails.
  • Surgical dermatology: In this type, the dermatologist treats diseases through surgical procedures.
  • Cosmetic dermatology: In this type, the dermatologist helps improve the appearance of our skin, hair, and nails. Cosmetic dermatology is about maintaining good health. It includes procedures such as fillers for a youthful appearance, chemical peels, hair transplants and laser surgery.
  • Dermatopathology: When a person specializes in dermatology and pathology. They examine samples of the skin, hair, and nails to diagnose and treat diseases.

How Do Dermatologists Treat Acne?

Acne medications work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection or reducing inflammation. With most prescription acne drugs, you may not see results for four to eight weeks, and your skin may get worse before it gets better. It can take many months or years for your acne to clear up completely.

The treatment regimen your doctor recommends depends on your age, the type and severity of your acne, and what you are willing to commit to. For example, you may need to wash and apply medications to the affected skin twice a day for several weeks. Often topical medications and drugs you take by mouth (oral medication) are used in combination. Pregnant women will not be able to use oral prescription medications for acne.

Facts About Acne:

  • Nearly 85 percent of people have acne at some point in their lives. It usually starts in puberty but can affect people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and even 50s.
