What is Cosmetic Dermatology?

What is Cosmetic Dermatology?

 Cosmetic dermatologists are physicians who have chosen to specialize in dermatology services that are aesthetic in nature. This doctor will have completed a dermatology residency after med school. At that point, any dermatologist could choose to describe themselves as a cosmetic specialist, but the true specialists undergo additional training specific to cosmetic treatments.

A cosmetic dermatologist will focus her or his areas of practice on those skin and body issues that are mostly cosmetic in nature, although there may be some overlap with medical needs:

  • Skin problems
  • Facial skin problems
  • Body skin treatments
  • Hair removal
  • Fillers and injectables for wrinkles and volume loss

Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald went the extra mile to become board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology and by the American Society of Dermatological Surgery. Dr. Fitzgerald has the experience, training and skill to offer both medical and cosmetic dermatology, although her Los Angeles practice focuses on cosmetic treatments.

Dr. Fitzgerald is on the clinical faculty at the University of California. She has been published in many peer-reviewed dermatology journals and is routinely invited to speak at various seminars in the industry.

As a cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Fitzgerald is committed to finding those advanced treatment options that will be the best match for your skin, lifestyle and expectations. Whether it’s wrinkles, sagging skin, hair, aging or another skin issue that is making you feel less confident, Dr. Fitzgerald can help you find the right solution.
