Why it is important to see a dermatologist?
A dermatologist is a specialized doctor who provides for the care of the skin, hair, and nails. These professionals have the knowledge and education to provide the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions that can impact a patient’s appearance and health. There are many issues that impact the skin and body, so having Dr. Francisco Kerdel and his associates on your side for diagnosis and treatment is a smart idea. At Florida Academic Dermatology Centers, our team is dedicated to helping you achieve healthy skin.
Below are four of the more popular reasons why patients should see a dermatologist:
- Acne. Acne is a common skin disorder that won’t always improve with the use of over-the-counter products. A dermatologist has access to stronger treatments or prescription-strength medications that can eradicate even severe acne and improve the skin’s texture and tone.
- Skin cancer. Skin cancer is a serious issue that needs to be caught in the earlier stages for the best prognosis. Patients are advised to visit a dermatologist once a year for a skin cancer screening and assessment. Patients can also contact their dermatologist if they notice changes in their skin that may indicate cancer has developed.
- Eczema. Patients who have been diagnosed with eczema may deal with constantly dry and itchy skin that causes redness. It can be difficult to control if patients are not aware of their triggers and do not have access to the best products for treatment. Working with a doctor to get a diagnosis and find effective treatments is essential.
- Scar treatment. Acne scars and keloid scars can be noticeable and embarrassing for some patients. With the help of a dermatologist, many of these scars can be treated and removed for smoother skin.
