Dermatology is the clinical study, research, diagnosis, and management of any health conditions or diseases that tend to affect the skin, hair, nails, and membranes. A person who specialises in dermatology is known as a dermatologist. Dermatology is often regarded as a specialised area of healthcare, and it should not be confused with aesthetics or other forms of cosmetology.

Promed Hospitals has one of the best skin and hair clinics in Chennai, which is centred around maximising your overall health and happiness through effective and holistic skin care treatments.

Preventive measures

Under dermatology, the most common treatments tend to include everything from common skin conditions that affect or appear on the skin surface to more complicated medical conditions that are associated with the skin. The following are the most common and well-known acne conditions treated by dermatology:

  • Acne, which is commonly known as pimples, usually appears on the skin due to an inflammation of the sebaceous glands.
  • Dermatitis, which is when your skin becomes red, swollen, and sore due to irritation or allergy,
  • Eczema is defined by rough, inflamed skin that becomes itchy and bleeds.
  • Psoriasis causes itchy, red, and scaly patches on the skin.
  • Fungal infections on the nail and skin are caused by fungi.
  • Warts are small, sore growths in areas of your body.
  • A cold sore, which usually appears as an inflamed blister near your mouth and is caused by the herpes simplex virus,
  • Skin cancer is a serious oncological condition that can be treated by dermatologists.

At Promed Hospitals, we also exclusively specialise in treating other related conditions, such as:

Dermatology treatments include

Usually, dermatologists use medication or ointments and lotions that can be applied to your skin as a common method of treatment. However, to treat more complex and difficult cases, they also engage in methods of surgery such as

  • Electrosurgery, which involves the use of a high-frequency electric current to cut or destroy tissue for surgical purposes,
  • Cryosurgery involves the use of extreme cold to freeze and cut tissue.
  • Laser surgery is the surgical use of a special light beam to cut growths and lesions.
  • Excision surgery involves using a sharp knife known as a scalpel to remove and cut tissue with appropriate closures.
  • Mohs surgery is an oncological surgical technique that tends to involve a layer-by-layer removal of cancer cells from the surface of your skin.
  • Mole removal involves the total or partial removal of a mole from your skin.
  • Vein treatment, in which your veins are treated after evaluation with sclerotherapy.

At Promed Hospitals, we also exclusively provide the following services:

  • Chemical peels
  • Mole removal
  • Dermal fillers
  • Thread lift
  • PRP, or platelet-rich plasma
  • Warts and skin tags
