If you’ve got skin that needs to be cleaned and moisturized, it’s important to get some professional help.
A dermatologist will be able to diagnose any underlying conditions that could make the skin more prone to getting sunburns and acne.
But what about skin conditions that can’t be treated?
The Skin Cancer Foundation is one organization that aims to provide cosmetic dermatologists with the tools they need to help people with skin problems, from blemishes to scarring to acne to eczema.
In this video, dermatologist Lauren Gavilanes talks about the difference between treating acne and sunburn.
“Cosmetic dermatologists are trained to deal with skin diseases,” said Dr. Lauren Gajic, president and CEO of the Skin Cancer foundation.
“We treat people in our program based on the severity of their condition and how the skin can be damaged or affected.
We’re looking to help patients with blemish or eczematous sunburn or scarring, and other types of skin conditions.”
Gavilane said she works with about 50 clients per month.
She said she’s found that her clients tend to go from a skin condition that’s not really their concern to a dermatologist that can help them with a skin problem.
When is cosmetic dermatology necessary?
When a dermatologic professional sees something on your skin that isn’t a cosmetic problem, they’ll look for signs of a disease that’s potentially causing that skin condition.
Gavi told us that the skin disease that she saw on my face was a redness on the surface of my cheeks that looked like a pimple.
I asked Gavila if she could get an x-ray and they could see that it was indeed a pimpe, which she said could cause a skin infection.
I also asked her if she’d be willing to try a topical cream on the same spot, to treat the pimple on my cheeks.
She did and it didn’t seem to help.
She asked me what the problem was, and I said, ‘Well, my skin is very sensitive, and if I put it on, it’ll irritate my skin.
But my skin isn’t that sensitive.
If you apply this cream, I think it’ll help.'”
Gava said that she believes it’s a good idea to treat acne with a topical gel if you have scarring or acne.
She also says that it’s more likely that the problem will resolve itself once you apply the cream, but if it doesn’t, you’ll have to use another product.
Dr. Gavillanes, who has worked as a dermatology doctor in the Philippines and India, said she is very excited to work with students who are looking to take up the cosmetic field.”
My hope is that by providing dermatologists in the United States with the best tools that they need, we can provide a better treatment for these conditions that are often neglected,” she said.
