What Is General Dermatology?
At Precision Dermatology and Skin Surgery in North Florida, we work with only the best general dermatology experts. A dermatologist is a physician who specializes in treating diseases of the skin, hair, and nails. Dermatologists are also certified by the American Board of Dermatology after extensive education and medical residency. They are highly trained to treat a wide array of skin disorders, from acne, warts, and skin rashes to chronic skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis.
Dermatologists are good diagnosticians and can distinguish between conditions with similar symptoms but require different treatments to achieve optimal skin health. Today, many dermatologists are also well-versed in cosmetic dermatology procedures to help improve the appearance of skin as we age. This unique understanding of skin health, combined with an artistic eye toward maintaining a vibrant appearance, is why our dermatologists are the best choice for caring for your skin.
Anatomy of the Skin
Did you know your skin is the largest organ in your body? This protective layer shields against heat, light, the environment, injury, and infection. Your skin helps regulate the body’s temperature, stores water, fat, and Vitamin D, prevents entry of bacteria, and acts as a sensory organ. Our staff can help you get answers like this and more once you arrive at our top-of-the-line facilities.
