About Dermatologist Specialists
A dermatologist specialist diagnoses and treats the skin, hair and nails. Because your skin is exposed to sunlight, air, pollution, chemicals and other irritants every day, it is susceptible to problems such as rashes, inflammation and even cancer. Problems with the hair and nails can result from infection, illness, hormone imbalance or aging. A dermatologist handles medical problems affecting the skin, hair and nails, as well as surgical treatments. Some dermatologist specialists also perform plastic surgery.
