A dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in treating conditions of the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. Dermatologists treat more than 3,000 different skin diseases including skin cancer, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, and nail disorders. In addition to treating various skin conditions, dermatologists also work to improve the appearance of their patients’ skin by treating wrinkles, ages spots, scars, and other signs of aging.
