Welcome to Landmark Hospital Dermatology Department!
Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin. It is a speciality with both medical and surgical aspects. A dermatologist is a specialist medical doctor who manages diseases related to skin, hair, nails, and some cosmetic problems.
Skin Conditions: Dermatologists diagnose and treat a wide range of skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea, fungal infections, skin allergies, and skin cancer. They are skilled in identifying the symptoms, conducting examinations, and recommending appropriate treatment plans.
Skin Cancer: Dermatologists play a vital role in the detection and treatment of skin cancer, which includes basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. They perform skin examinations, biopsy suspicious lesions, and provide treatment options such as surgical excision, Mohs surgery (a specialized technique for removing skin cancer), radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

Cosmetic Dermatology: Dermatologists also specialize in cosmetic dermatology, which involves enhancing the appearance of the skin and treating aesthetic concerns. They offer procedures like Botox injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser treatments, and other non-surgical techniques to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, address pigmentation issues, and promote skin rejuvenation.
Hair and Scalp Disorders: Dermatologists diagnose and treat conditions affecting the hair and scalp, including hair loss (alopecia), dandruff, scalp infections, and disorders like trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling). They may recommend topical treatments, oral medications, hormonal therapies, or surgical interventions for hair restoration.
Pediatric Dermatology: Dermatologists who specialize in pediatric dermatology focus on the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions in children. They address issues like eczema, birthmarks, acne, warts, and genetic skin disorders specific to pediatric patients.
It’s important to consult with a dermatologist for any concerns related to your skin, hair, nails, or mucous membranes. They can provide an accurate diagnosis, recommend appropriate treatments, and guide you in maintaining optimal skin health. Regular check-ups with a dermatologist are also important for skin cancer screenings and early detection of any potential issues.
