Difference 1. Procedures performed by dermatologists
Pigmentation disorders are considered complex and challenging problems to address. The key to proper treatment is having a thorough understanding of skin histology and determine the direction of treatment by making apprroapte predictions. Dermatologists are highly skilled medical specialists with advanced knowledge and experience in the field of dermatology compared to general physicians. Dermatologists must study and train in skin histology and skin science for a minimum of 4 to 6 years. In comparison, non-dermatologists study and train in these fields for merely 2 weeks.
Q. Why must I seek treatment from a dermatologist?
Accurate diagnosis based on the determination of the exact cause and progress is key to ensuring proper treatment.
Do they both look the same to you?
Actually, the skin condition is lentigo in Photograph A and melasma in Photograph B.
They may appear similar to the naked eye, but if you have a background in skin histology, you’ll immediately be able to tell the two apart based on the location of the pigmented lesions.
From the perspective of skin histology, when it comes to epidermal pigmentations such as lentigo (blemishes, age spots, etc.) and freckles, the pigments are concentrated in the basal layer, which is the bottommost layer of the epidermis. On the other hand, dermal pigmentations such as melasma and nevi of Ota, the pigments are located deeper inside the skin in the dermis layer. Also, even with the same epidermal pigmentations such as lentigo, café au lait spots and freckles, the reactions to treatments are very different. For instance, there are low risks when it comes to treating freckles with a powerful laser, but if a powerful laser is applied on café au lait spots, it may aggravate the melanocytes and cause darker pigmentation. Accordingly, safe treatment can only be guaranteed by dermatologists with the advanced knowledge necessary to make an accurate diagnosis of pigmented lesions and to employ a proper treatment method depending on the location of the pigmented lesions and the characteristics of the melanocytes.
Scientific and systematic approach using state-of-the-art equipment
VISIA, a state-of-the-art skin assessment system, is used to find pigmented lesions that are not visible to the naked eye so as to predict the pigmented lesions that will likely develop in the future and determine the depth of the pigments more accurately. This ensure safe, accurate and tailored treatment.
Vectra is a state-of-the-art 3D camera, which is used to check the potential pigment distribution and predict the pigmented lesions that will likely develop in the future. Based on the results, a customized treatment is initiated.
