Dermatologist

Dermatology is the medical science of diagnosing and treating skin diseases affecting the skin, scalp, hair, nails, lips and genitals. It derives from the greek word derma meaning ‘of skin’.

A Dermatologist is a Doctor who has undertaken further training and study and so has specialised experience in diagnosing and treating skin diseases.

Dermatologists diagnose and treat more than 3,000 different diseases including skin cancer, eczema, acne, vitiligo, psoriasis and alopecia areata. You can find out more about some of these skin diseases and other dermatology conditions here.

While some Dermatologists will consult on all general dermatology others will undertake further training, study and research to become experts in a dermatology subspecialty. Specialist Dermatologists include Paediatric Dermatologists, Hair loss Dermatologists, Allergy Dermatologists, Surgical and Skin Cancer Dermatologists, Acne Dermatologists, and Laser Dermatologists.

You will find some of the UK’s Best Dermatologists working at The London Skin and Hair Clinic. To read the profiles on our Dermatologists and find out their availability for appointments you can click here.

During a Dermatology consultation the Dermatologist will review your medical history and symptoms and signs. They may examine your skin using a dermatascope (a skin surface microscope). The Dermatologist may perform some diagnostic tests including blood tests, a fungal, viral or bacterial swab or skin-scraping or hair test. In some instances the Dermatologist may need to perform a diagnostic biopsy where they remove a small piece of skin under local anaesthetic which is analysed by a specialist Dermatology Pathologist in order to aid in diagnosis. You can find out more about what happens in a Dermatologist consultation here.
