We take a look at when and why you should visit a dermatologist - and how to visit in Dubai.

If you have noticed any changes in your skin or nails recently, it's probably time to see a dermatologist. Sure, some skin conditions can be treated safely at home but most dermatological issues require specialist care.

Before visiting any dermatologist in Dubai, it's important to have realistic expectations. If you have things like stretch marks, large pores or cellulite, there are treatments available to improve them - but do not eliminate them completely.

What does a dermatologist do?

A dermatologist is a doctor who specialises in the health of your skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes, and dermatology is the area of medicine concerned with these areas.

After all, the skin is the largest organ of your body. It's the first line of defence against bacteria and injury, and often reflects your overall health. So even if you have no pressing issue, checking-in with a Dubai dermatologist every once in a while isn't a bad idea.

When visiting a dermatologist, be sure that they have the correct licence or certification. Some practitioners in spas and beauty clinics claim to be dermatologists, but will not have the accreditation. So be sure to check that your chosen dermatologist is licenced to practice medicine.

When to see a dermatologist

Dermatologists can treat over 3,000 different diseases. In fact, the practice of dermatology requires a great depth of clinical knowledge as they need to understand the numerous internal conditions that can cause skin symptoms.

The most common conditions treated by dermatologists, that you may be experiencing, include:

  • Vitiligo: when the skin loses melanin, causing patches of lighter skin
  • Acne: one of the most common diseases, which affects the oil glands of the skin
  • Dermatitis and eczema: inflammation of the skin, leading to swelling and an itchy rash
  • Fungal infections: it can infect the skin, nails, and hair
  • Hair disorders: hair loss, alopecia, head lice are all issues that can be treated by a dermatologist
  • Nail problems: fungal infections and ingrowing toenails are the most common
  • Psoriasis: a chronic, autoimmune skin disorder that speeds up the growth of skin cells
  • Rosacea: redness in the face and small, pus-filled bumps
  • Skin cancer: the most common forms are basal cell carcinoma (BCC), melanoma, and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)
  • Shingles, or herpes zoster: a viral infection that affects the nerve endings in the skin
  • Warts: the contagious, benign skin growths can indicate an underlying issue with immunity
