Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with the skin, mucosa, nails and hair. It comprises both medical and surgical aspects.
Dermato-oncology is the branch of Dermatology that is focused on the early detection and clinical diagnosis of the various skin cancers as well pre-cancerous skin conditions. Consequently, it plays essential role in the primary and secondary prevention of the skin cancers.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a type of treatment method that uses of light and special sensitizer to treat a variety of skin conditions.
Phototherapy is a type of treatment option that is used in dermatology to treat a variety of conditions that are responsive to a special kind of light, such as psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, lichen planus, and others. The skin is exposed to the ultraviolet light of varying intensities, wavelengths, and durations to produce an optimal treatment effect.
Skin inflammation (dermatitis) can be caused by various factors including Inherited as well as chronic by nature, triggered by irritant substances, or triggered by allergic reactions.
Dermatitis triggered by allergic reactions (Allergic Contact Dermatitis (ACD), appears on the skin of people who have developed a Contact Allergy.
In dermatology, there are many methods that dermatologists use to treat various skin conditions. One of the most popular methods of treating skin disorders is with high energy light sources, called Lasers. The “Laser” originates from the acronym “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.”
Surgical dermatology is considered as a branch of dermatology where skin conditions are primarily treated or best treated through surgical interventions rather than by medications. Typically, skin conditions such as acne scars, skin cancers, moles, and skin tags will most likely respond better to a surgical intervention than to a pharmacological one.
High Intensity Radiofrequency
High intensity focused radiofrequency is an advanced and precise way to deliver energy to the skin comprising of two very effective technologies: MFR (Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency) and SFR (Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency) that can be used either as stand-alone treatments or in combination supplementing each other.
Treatment of skin condition is not finishing with prescribing topical, oral or injected medication. The essential role in the comprehensive treatment plan play therapeutic modalities that synergistically increase effect of the medications and have restoration effect on skin itself.
The Center for Medical and Surgical Dermatology offers scientifically proven skin care options that help to improve the treatment outcome.
Low Level Light Therapy
Over the last few years the use of light sources to treat pain and inflammation as well as to promote cell rejuvenation have become increasingly popular. While having started out as a therapy for rheumatology, especially in the management of osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, it has become increasingly popular in the field of dermatology.
