What Is Dermato-cosmetics?
The constant scientific advances have led to the impressive diversification of the therapeutic solutions dermatology offers, including the development of “super-specialties”, such as dermato-cosmetics. It encompasses the diagnosis and treatment manoeuvres applied in the dermatology practice meant to guarantee the achievement of a unique goal: a healthier, more beautiful skin and the delay of the much-feared aging process.
The first step in this process is the identification of the skin type, because different traits impose different dermato-cosmetic solutions: whether we are talking about normal, combination (most commonly encountered), oily or dry and easily irritable, hypersensitive skin with a marked reddening tendency, there are dermato-cosmetic products especially designed for each of these types of skin, which work in synergy with the manoeuvres that can be performed in the dermatology practice (variable intensity peeling, microdermabrasion, the application of soft tissue fillers by injection at the level of the fine or deep wrinkles, mesotherapy, etc.)
Dermato-cosmetics relies on the following concept: skin imperfections must be approached as a whole, whether we are talking about acneiform eruptions, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or scars. A phased plan is developed for each patient, including minimally invasive interventions, performed using aseptic techniques, under full safety and confidentiality conditions.
