What is a dermatologist?
If you are looking for high quality, innovative skin care in a caring and professional environment, you should schedule an appointment with a Ballantyne dermatologist at the Blakeney Professional Center. There is a significant importance for seeing a dermatologist for evaluation and treatment of skin conditions. Dermatologists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the skin. In addition to their thorough knowledge of medicine, they are experts in the health assessment of skin, hair, and nails. Some of the most common skin conditions that are treated by dermatologists include: rosacea, eczema, acne, psoriasis, and skin cancer. They are also trained to perform surgical procedures that include biopsies, excision of skin cancer, injection of dermal fillers, and Botox®. Dermatologists use cutting edge and high tech procedures to provide effective results that includes the use of lasers, body sculpting, and treatment for hair loss.
What is a board-certified dermatologist?
After completion of medical training to become a doctor, the most skilled Ballantyne dermatologist must pass the dermatology board examination to become “board-certified.” Board certification ensures that the dermatologist has the knowledge, skills, and experience for the advanced treatment of skin conditions and diseases. Your Ballantyne dermatologists are board certified members of the American Board of Dermatology. Some specialized fields of medical study for dermatologists include cosmetic dermatology and Mohs surgery.
