What is The Difference Between Clinical and Cosmetic Dermatology?

Dermatology is a field that specializes in treating various conditions that occur with the skin. However, it is not just one specific field; there are different sectors within dermatology that focus on certain aspects. Clinical dermatology leans more on treating ailments such as alopecia, cystic acne and even skin cancer.

Cosmetic dermatology is what helps people smooth out their skin and maintain a more youthful appearance. Examples of cosmetic dermatology include body contouring, chemical peels, PRP injections, and laser treatments.

What Kinds of Skincare Problems Can Be Treated?

The type of care you receive for your skincare problem will depend on whether it falls under the clinical or cosmetic dermatology umbrella. For example, if you sustain a burn injury, you will need to see a clinical dermatologist. If you are looking to improve your appearance, like treating cellulite or needing a tattoo removal, you would go with a cosmetic dermatologist.

Below is a detailed list of the different types of treatable skin care problems:

  • Broken blood vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Discolored skin
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles and creases
  • Sagging skin
  • Freckles
  • Acne scars
  • Spider veins
  • Hypertrichosis

Another important factor to note is that if you see a general dermatologist with a certain ailment, you will be referred out to a cosmetic dermatologist or a clinical dermatologist.

How Often Should I See a Dermatologist?

On average, it is recommended that everyone visit a dermatologist at least once every year. Depending on the condition of your skin, however, it may be better to visit a dermatologist every few months. Ideally, it is best to see a dermatologist more than once a year because it can help keep your skin healthy.

If you have a serious skin condition, then you’ll most likely be advised to make routine visits to keep it from getting worse. This is usually the case with people who are being treated for cystic acne, skin cancer, and alopecia.

What to Expect From a Dermatologist Appointment?

When visiting a dermatologist for the first time, it is normal to feel a little nervous. This is mainly due to not knowing what to expect from the appointment. During the appointment, you can expect to have your skin carefully checked from head to toe. This is done to help you and the dermatologist get a better understanding of how your skin works. You will also be asked if you are on any medications and if you use any at-home skin care treatments. Depending on the condition of your skin, you might be given a personalized skin care regimen.
