Who Should Be Performing Your Cosmetic Treatments?

square faceMost people hear the word dermatologist and think they only treat skin conditions or diseases.  Today, we realize that is not the case.  Dermatologists have the education, expertise and experience to safely and effectively reduce the signs of aging. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that consumers ask the following questions before undergoing any cosmetic procedure

Remember, undergoing a cosmetic procedure is about your health and safety,  not just about your appearance.  A dermatologist has the medical training and experience required to keep skin healthy and youthful-looking.
