Yes, dermatologists are medical doctors. Like many other professions in the medical field, becoming a dermatologist takes a significant amount of education and training.
To receive their degree and certification, dermatologists spend at least four years earning a bachelor’s degree, four years in medical school, one year in an internship, and a minimum of three years in residency.
General dermatologists are those who deeply understand and can diagnose various conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. However, many dermatologists choose to specialize in a subset category of dermatology. Specializations include:
- Cosmetic Dermatology
- Medical Dermatology
- Surgical Dermatology
- Pediatric Dermatology
There are additional subspecialties of dermatology, but these are the most common ones. At The Dermatology & Skin Surgery Center of Wilmington, our providers have additional training in cosmetic and surgical dermatology.
Dermatologists can identify and treat over 3,000 conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. This may include common skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne, as well as uncommon skin conditions, such as bullous skin disorders, rare genetic skin conditions, vitiligo and other pigmentary disorders, and rare infectious diseases, such as leprosy.
In many cases, dermatologists have the necessary training and education to identify and diagnose a condition simply by performing a thorough skin evaluation. However, for some skin conditions, a second opinion or skin biopsy is required for a conclusive diagnosis.
Not all dermatologists perform cosmetic treatments, as this subspecialty requires additional training and hands-on experience.
However, at The Dermatology & Skin Surgery Center of Wilmington, many of our providers are highly experienced in performing and administering cosmetic treatments. We offer several cosmetic treatments to help our clients achieve their aesthetic goals, including:
