Common Dermatological Procedures

The skin, the largest organ of the body, helps define a person's look. Any unsightly skin appearance, such as scarring, can affect both mental and physical well-being. In addition, because the skin is on the outside of the body, it is more susceptible to growths, discolorations, and disease.
There are many different dermatological procedures designed to improve the condition or appearance of the skin. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
