The Department of Dermatology offers a comprehensive state-of-the-art skin care diagnostics and treatment. The department provides a wide variety of specialty services in pediatric, surgical, medical and cosmetic dermatology. Our experts have successfully treated all forms of disfigurements including skin cancers and melanoma to acne and skin related problems. Our skilled approach at skincare is bound to have our patients discover the gift of glowing skins.
Dermatologists specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the skin, hair, and nails, including concerns related to cosmetic issues, such as sun damage and aging, as well as skin cancer, and other medical skin conditions.
Dermatologists who have additional interest and skill in performing surgical procedures are referred to as dermatologic surgeons or dermasurgeons.
Specialty terms like “dermatologist” and “dermatologic surgeon” are often unregulated and may be used in some states by any doctor, regardless of their training and credentials.
So, for instance, a doctor who has an active medical license and is board certified in Internal Medicine but who has not undergone any specialty training in dermatology may refer to him or herself as a dermatologist or dermasurgeon, despite the fact that their training and credentials may not reflect specialization in this area of medical practice.
Skin is the largest organ of our body hence care needs to be taken to keep it healthy and glowing. Many factors like good and healthy nutrition, plenty of water and fluids, adequate exercise and sun protection add to the well being of our skin. A good nutrition consisting of green leafy vegetables, proteins, fruits, atleast 6 to 8 glasses of water every day is required to maintain a good skin texture and glow. Half an hour of moderate exercise everyday helps retain a good skin tone and a good sun block cream to protect your skin from the intense ultraviolet radiation reduces the effects of aging and protects your skin from skin cancers.
