What is the difference between dermatology and aesthetic services?

Aesthetics and dermatology services are both branches of medicine that focus on skin health and appearance, but they have distinct focuses and treatments.

Dermatology primarily deals with diagnosing and treating medical conditions related to the skin, hair, and nails. This includes conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, skin cancer, and infections. Dermatologists, as medical doctors, undergo extensive training to diagnose and treat skin conditions using medications, topical treatments, surgeries, and other interventions.

On the other hand, aesthetics, often referred to as cosmetic dermatology, focuses on enhancing the appearance of the skin, rather than treating medical conditions. Aesthetic services may include treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser therapy for hair removal or skin rejuvenation, and microneedling. These treatments aim to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, scars, and other signs of ageing or skin damage.

At Freyja Medical, we offer both dermatology and aesthetics services, providing comprehensive care to address both medical concerns and aesthetic goals.

What should I look for in a practitioner?

When seeking a practitioner for dermatology or aesthetics services, several factors are crucial to consider:

  1. Qualifications and Credentials: Ensure the practitioner is qualified and registered with relevant professional bodies such as the General Medical Council (GMC), the British Dermatological Nursing Group (BDNG) and the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD).
  2. Experience and Specialisation: Check the practitioner’s experience in the specific area of dermatology or aesthetics you require. Specialisation in areas such as skin cancer, acne treatment, or cosmetic procedures like Botox and fillers can indicate expertise.
  3. Reputation and Reviews: Research the practitioner’s reputation by reading reviews from previous patients.
  4. Consultation Process: Evaluate the practitioner’s consultation process, it’s essential to feel comfortable and well-informed during this process.
  5. Clinic Standards and Facilities: Look for clinics that adhere to regulatory standards and prioritise patient safety and comfort.
  6. Communication and Trust: Choose a practitioner who communicates clearly, listens attentively to your concerns, and respects your preferences and goals.
  7. Continued Education and Training: Medicine and aesthetics are constantly evolving fields, and practitioners who stay updated with the latest advancements can offer more effective and innovative treatments.

By considering these factors, you can select a practitioner who meets your needs and delivers high-quality dermatology or aesthetics services.
