Why Choose a Consultant Dermatologist?
Consultant dermatologists are experts in treating skin, hair, nail and genital diseases – a typical example of this being adult acne treatment. Most have undertaken research in their field of interest and published their findings in international journals making them world authorities.
Training to become a consultant takes many years and dermatology consultants should not be confused with other types of skin ‘specialists’.
In choosing a dermatology consultant to diagnose and treat your skin condition, you choose the highest level of training and expertise. Consultant dermatologists all specialise in the medical aspects of skin disease such as acne, eczema and psoriasis as well as surgical treatments i.e. skin cancer treatment. Some consultants undertake cosmetic treatments also.
