What is Dermatology?
Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with skin, hair, and nails. It includes the treatment of diseases in these parts of the body and cosmetic procedures to help improve your appearance.
What Are the Benefits of Therapeutic Dermatology?
Belmar prepares several types of therapeutic dermatology solutions:
Facial treatments designed to:
- Improve moisture, elasticity, and firmness in skin of all ages
- Even out skin tone
- Help fade age spots, freckles, and darkened areas that can occur as a side effect of some medications
Skin medications used to treat:
- Allergic reactions such as those to poison oak, poison ivy, and sumac
Compound medications to treat hair loss in both men and women.
Antifungal formulations to treat fungal nail infections.
These nail infections can appear on hands and feet but are most common on toenails. They usually begin as a few white spots, and can gradually make your nails thick, brittle, and discolored.
Who May Benefit From Therapeutic Dermatology?
Anyone who has any of the conditions listed above or who is concerned about ageing gracefully may benefit from therapeutic dermatology.
Who Should Avoid It?
Our compounded therapies can be highly effective, but it’s always important to talk to your doctor about whether a particular medication is right for you. Be sure to discuss any current health conditions and your medical history so your doctor can recommend the best choice for you.
