Dermatology Q & A

What is dermatology?

Dermatology is an area of medical practice focused on your skin. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t pay much attention to your skin until a problem arises. Working with a physician skilled in dermatology and aesthetic treatments offers numerous health benefits.

Skin serves a wide range of functions. The largest organ on your body, your skin protects you from the external environment. It also regulates your body temperature and even contains antibacterial secretions to reduce your risk of infection. Skin also contains melanin, a pigment that protects against damage from ultraviolet rays.

Your skin is incredibly resilient and is continuously renewing itself. But it is also vulnerable to harm. When skin issues develop, working with a physician skilled in dermatology is a great way to preserve your overall health as well as your appearance. 

 

What kinds of aesthetic dermatology treatments are available?

Because your skin covers virtually all of your body’s surfaces, it’s also one of the first things people notice about you. Research shows that humans are biologically inclined to find healthy and glowing skin attractive. That’s because beautiful skin suggests great health. 

DOCCS offers some of the latest tools and techniques in cosmetic dermatology.

 

Botox®

Botox is an injectable treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. It takes less than half an hour for treatment, and the results last around four months. 

 

Dermal fillers

During youth, your skin is padded with a thick layer of collagen, which rounds and smooths facial contouring. Over the years you lose much of that padding, and dermal fillers can help  replace or enhance facial volume. There are fillers formulated for use in all areas of your face. 

 

Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses concentrated beams of light to slow or prevent hair growth. A great option for reducing unwanted hair on your back, abdomen, face, arms, or legs, laser hair removal can save you time and money in the long run. 

Additional aesthetic skin treatments are available and can help you improve the appearance, resilience, and texture of your skin.

 

What kinds of medical dermatology treatments are available?

Medical dermatology focuses on treating common skin conditions that go beyond the mere aesthetics of your skin. Some examples include:

  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Basal cell cancer
  • Dermatitis
  • Graves’ disease
  • Extreme itching
  • Pigmentation disorders
  • PRP facials
  • Botox
  • Dermal fillers
  • Laser hair removal

There are many more skin issues that can benefit from medical dermatology care. At DOCCS, Dr. Sahay begins by performing a thorough physical exam and discussing your symptoms. She then creates a personalized treatment plan to address those needs. 

Within both aesthetic dermatology and medical dermatology, there is never any pressure to choose one treatment over another. You’ll receive all the details needed to make an informed decision about your care.
