Dermatology is the science that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, hair and nails.

Dermatologists identify and remove skin cancers, cysts, and other skin growths. They also help treat other skin issues such as acne, skin allergies, rashes, and abnormalities of the skin such as psoriasis, eczema, dandruff, dermatitis, and more. Many dermatologists also do some aesthetic, elective procedures such as laser treatments, anti-aging and injections for fine lines and wrinkles.
