Clinical and Medical Dermatology
Dermatology is the medical science of disorders of the skin. Often skin lesions and disorders are markers of internal disease and mirror the processes occurring within the body. Dermatology has been called "a window through which to see the entire body." Skin consists of distinct layers. The most superficial (most exterior) layer is the epidermis. The epidermis is a stratified squamous epithelium. It has stacked layers of cells. Below the epidermis lies the dermis and below that we find the subcutaneous fat, or sub cutis. Dozens of different skin infections exist, with huge variation in symptoms and severity. Some of the most common skin conditions include Contact allergies, Alopecia, Psoriasis, Blistering disorders, Rashes, Atopic Dermatitis.
According to the American Cancer Society, there are more than 2 million annual cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer (non melanomas) in the U.S. The occurrence of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, has increased from 47,700 diagnoses in 2000 to 75,000 in 2009. While demand for cosmetic dermatology decreased during the recession, the economic recovery combined with an aging population is driving a resurgence of demand for cosmetic procedures.
