Medical Dermatology Q & A

What is medical dermatology?

Medical dermatology is the treatment of your skin, hair, and nails. The main goal of medical dermatology is keeping your appearance healthy long-term. This takes a couple of forms, including: 

Preventive care

Preventive care helps you avoid developing skin cancer, the most common cancer in adults today. Regular skin cancer screenings can diagnose precancerous skin growths, which means you can take action right away to prevent them from turning into cancer. 

Even the most aggressive type of skin cancer, melanoma, has a 99% cure rate when discovered and treated before it spreads. Preventive skin care can ensure that you get crucial early treatment. 

Acute care

Acute care covers any skin, hair, or nail condition that arises suddenly. If you develop a new problem, Brooks Dermatology can see you promptly, ensuring that you don’t have to endure discomfort or distress. 

Brooks Dermatology offers medical dermatology for patients of all ages.

How are medical dermatology and cosmetic dermatology different?

  • Botox®
  • Dermal fillers
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • CoolSculpting®
  • Laser hair removal
  • Nonsurgical rhinoplasty (nose job)
