Dermatology: Overview

Dermatology is a term familiar to everyone. Human beings have their internal organs covered with a layer of skin and hence, the study of skin, skin-related causes or dermis is known popularly as dermatology or dermatological studies.

Dermatology is a term encompassing not only the studies and researchers about the many health factors and conditions of the skin, but also constitutes the management of skin problems and issues in people with the aid of advanced treatment and medication.

The field finds extreme importance given, the skin is the outermost layer of the human body and hence, is posed to various tough weather, injuries and bacteria.

To keep our skin healthy, dermatology is studied by aspiring dermatologists to provide medical and aesthetic aids when a patient is in need of them.

Who is a Dermatologist?

The term Dermatology can be defined as the study of the dermis or in other words, the study of the human skin and such related conditions in man.

The skin is the most extensive external organ that shields the internal, more delicate organs from stress, strain, injuries and bacteria.

The skin also regulates the body’s temperature and plays an immensely vital role in maintaining the immune system or one’s health.

Hence, the term dermatologist, similarly is the one who studies these skin conditions and accordingly prescribes medication or treatment. These doctors specialise in skincare and medical or aesthetic treatment by identifying symptoms of various skin diseases and prescribing medication for them.

As per Medical News Today, dermatologists treat more than 3000 skin conditions

Dermatology can be of two distinct types as far as practice goes. They can be divided into two water tight compartments, out of which, one deals with all the medical procedures related to the general factors that make up our skin; whereas, the other one deals with cosmetic treatment & procedures or aesthetic aids.

Medical Dermatology

A field of study in which a medical expert specializing in administering the hair, epidermis, nails, and the articulated cavity is termed as medical dermatology.

Medical dermatology includes the evaluation and diagnosis of diseases of the skin, human hair, area of the lips, and the mouth.

Medical dermatology practices are further employed to work to control these disorders as mentioned earlier or conditions that are exclusively related to the skin utilising a wider range of various options.

The skin does sometimes display to dermatologists the various ongoing functions within the body internally. They analyze the concerned area and deliver the best possible treatment for any patient’s condition by medical dermatology.

Aesthetic Dermatologists

In this discipline, specially trained doctors assist in treating different types of skin conditions that are rare or standard conditions for every age group that exists in society.

The unique skills that dermatologists acquire to treat common conditions such as acne, eczema, melasma, etc. are solely a very small fraction of what they do.

They additionally perform cosmetic services like facial fillers and synthetic peels to further aid in the modification or improvement of the appearance of the patient.

It is the type of or branch of dermatology focused on improving looks rather that of completely exterminating the disease.

Aesthetics dermatology is also about  enhancing self-confidence and self-worth, therefore, helping the said patient’s mental health.

Every legally certified dermatologist takes three years of specialized practice on the formation and function of the skin related to pharmaceutical, surgical, and corrective dermatology.

This knowledge and expertise are examined through the annual exams before awarding certification.

Why you must go to Dermatologist for skin complications rather than making a visit to a general physician?

With altering times in the present world, more and more people are becoming conscious about things around them. People have become increasingly specific about their needs and the reasons behind their choices.

When it comes to skincare, this is no exception. The skin being the most important external organ of the body needs extreme care and correct custom treatment to treat various conditions. Hence, the discipline of dermatology has gained importance with the evolution of time.

When facing a skin condition, the initial instinct of people is to visit a general physician than a specialized dermatologist to diagnose their problem.

Patients must always be aware of the fact that most of the common skin issues do not heal with general aid. Hence, they will at a point, need the help of a dermatologist if they want to heal the condition, with the right treatment.

Specialized doctors or dermatologists, rather than visiting a general doctor is important because a general doctor may be able to identify the cause of the problem and device treatment, but a dermatologist’s suggested treatment will turn out to be the best option to heal the problem.

Researches and public data have shown that dermatologists are better and more precise about knowing various skin diseases, even skin cancer. Whereas, general physicians would not be as precise as a dermatologist in diagnosing complex skin issues.

General physicians are in charge of diagnosing various conditions besides skin, hair, or mouth-related issues, but dermatologists are made to improve dermal conditions especially.

The main focus of going to a doctor is to get the correct treatment with great precision, after the condition has been assessed. Hence, it is at all times better to go for a dermatologist rather than a general doctor, for treating skin condition.
