Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with health and beauty of the skin, hair and nails. A dermatologist will help patients with a wide range of conditions, ranging from the treatment of diseases to cosmetic procedures. These can range from the removal and/or treatment of tattoos, acne, eczema, fungal infections, burns, and birth marks to the diagnosis and treatment of certain cancers. Most surgeries are minimally invasive.

As with all medical professionals, their primary responsibility is to identify, diagnose and treat problems experienced by patients through a variety of examinations, tests, medical procedures and prescription of medication. It is also their job to ensure that the patient is fully aware of courses of treatment and procedures available to them so that they can play a role in, and have some control over, the care they receive.
