What is a Dermatologist?

Dermatologists are considered a skin specialist, but they also treat issues with nails and hair. Dermatologists treat skin diseases and other skin issues, but they also perform cosmetic treatments, like Botox. Adults who notice an unexplained mark on their skin or see a mole that has changed in appearance should see a dermatologist. The doctor may take a biopsy of the skin area in question.
