What is a Dermatologist
What's A Dermatologist and How Can They Help Me?
A dermatologist is a physician and surgeon who specializes in the treatment of skin conditions and diseases. Most dermatologists have had at least three years of post-graduate specialty training in the medical and surgical treatment of skin conditions. They are certified by the American Board of Dermatology only after extensive education, specialty medical residency, and examinations. Dermatologists treat everything from skin cancer, moles, and birthmarks, to chronic skin diseases, such as hives, eczema or psoriasis. They also treat conditions of the scalp and nails. Dermatologists are good diagnosticians and can distinguish between conditions that share similar symptoms. Today many dermatologists are also well versed in cosmetic dermatology procedures to help improve the appearance of skin as we age.
Why Choose a Dermatologist?
While many salons and spas offer skin treatments and services such as Botox, often at a reduced rate, there are increased risks associated with having these businesses performing medical procedures. Additionally, a growing number of studies has shown that dermatologists are better at diagnosing skin cancer and melanoma, than physicians in many other fields of medicine. By choosing an American Board Certified Dermatologist, you are assuring that you receive the highest level of medical and surgical care in the field of dermatology.
American Society of Dermatologic Surgery
Dr. Graham is also a fellow of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS). These physicians are trained and experienced in both surgical and minimally invasive treatments to improve the function, health, and beauty of your skin. They continue to pioneer new research and treatment options - from skin cancer to cosmetic procedures.
