What is a cosmetic dermatologist?

A cosmetic dermatologist is a medical provider that specializes in the overall appearance of your skin. A traditional dermatologist focuses on the health and well-being of your skin. In contrast, a cosmetic dermatologist's goal is the aesthetics of your skin.

You might want a cosmetic dermatologist over a traditional one for several reasons. A cosmetic dermatologist treats all of the following conditions:

  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hair removal
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Cellulite
  • Loose skin

Whether you're concerned about fine lines and wrinkles or want to decrease surface fat and cellulite, a cosmetic dermatologist can help.

The main goal of cosmetic dermatology is to fix aesthetic problems on your skin to give you a healthy, more youthful glow.

Cosmetic dermatology includes various treatment modalities. A cosmetic dermatologist bases each treatment on a specific problem on your skin.

At the Dermatology Center of Worcester, Dr. Roberts offers several cosmetic dermatology treatments, which include:

Dr. Roberts takes the time to listen to your skin concerns and creates a customized treatment plan to address your needs. This plan may include one or more of the above cosmetic treatments to help you feel comfortable in your skin.

Tips for finding a good provider

Don't rush your decision when searching for a cosmetic dermatologist. Finding the perfect fit may take a few tries, but you'll be glad you took the time in the long run.

Dr. Roberts wants the best for all her patients. She realizes how important your skin is to your appearance and offers the following tips to help you choose the right cosmetic provider:

1. Check credentials

A doctor's credentials are crucial when searching for a cosmetic dermatologist. You can usually find their credentials on the practice's website or by searching their board certifications on the American Academy of Dermatology website or the American Board of Dermatology's website.

Board certification means that the provider has trained and worked exclusively in dermatology.

2. Read their reviews

Reading reviews is one of the best ways to find information on a provider. People usually comment on their experience, wait times, bedside manner, and scheduling appointments.

All that information is crucial when deciding on the right cosmetic dermatologist for your needs.

3. Consider their experience

The provider's experience says a lot about their practice as well. Cosmetic dermatology is a specialized field, so make sure the provider you're researching has experience in cosmetic treatments like Botox and fillers.

When trusting your skin in the hands of a cosmetic dermatologist, experience matters.

4. Think about communication

Communication is vital when you're choosing a cosmetic dermatologist. You don't want to choose a provider who isn't willing to listen to your concerns and needs.

Research how the provider communicates by reading reviews and the information provided on their website.

5. Research their treatments

The whole reason you want a cosmetic dermatologist is to change how your skin looks. There are various cosmetic treatments to correct skin problems like acne and uneven skin tone.

Find out what treatments the cosmetic provider offers to narrow down your choices. If you're looking for a specific type of treatment, make sure that the provider offers it on their website.
