What is a clinical aesthetician and why should I go to one?

A clinical aesthetician is an experienced, licensed skin care specialist operating in a clinical or medical setting. An aesthetician is capable of assessing and assisting each individual based on their specific needs. How bad should my acne be before I seek a physician’s help? This is a frequent question brought up to dermatologists. A good time to seek help is the moment acne begins to concern you. Fortunately, with treatment available today, acne should never reach the scarring stage, if cared for appropriately. The most important part of acne treatment is the patient’s willingness to follow the physician’s recommendations and to give those recommendations time to work. Most acne treatment failures are the result of unrealistic expectations regarding the rate of improvement.

Is dermatology just for women?

Dermatology is a specialty that is not just for women. Dermatology is a specialty that covers men and women, from children to seniors.
