Dermatologic surgeons have been the pioneers and leaders in the field of cosmetic and medically necessary skin surgery. In fact, the science of many of the cosmetic surgery procedures and skin cancer treatments performed today were either originated or enhanced by dermatologic surgeons, including:
Dermatologic surgery deals with the diagnosis and treatment of medically necessary and cosmetic conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, mucous membranes and adjacent tissues by various surgical, reconstructive, cosmetic and non-surgical methods. The purpose of dermatologic surgery is to repair and/or improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue.
ASDS members treat a variety of conditions to protect and enhance the look and health of the skin – from skin cancer and varicose veins to acne scars, sun-damaged skin, age spots and cellulite.
ASDS members combine the widest range of options with expert knowledge so you can look and feel your best. Choose from laser and light procedures, body sculpting, wrinkle-relaxing injections, soft-tissue fillers, vein treatments, chemical peels and more.
One out of every five Americans will develop some type of skin cancer over the course of their lifetime. However, with early detection and treatment, most skin cancers are completely curable.
While dermatologists can now prevent, maintain and even restore a youthful appearance to men and women of nearly all ages, it's important to remember that healthy skin and good skin care habits begin in childhood and can help in the development of self-confidence and positive self-esteem.
The ASDS is recognized as the premier specialty group representing dermatologists performing all procedures – cosmetic, general, reconstructive and Mohs. ASDS members are experts in treating skin and soft tissue with surgical and non-surgical methods.
