General Dermatology

What is a Dermatologist?

Dermatologists are uniquely-trained doctors who specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating conditions involving the skin, hair, and nails. They treat patients of all ages who may have one or many inflammatory, inherited, environmental, and malignant disorders and diseases.

At Bikowski Skin Care Center, our board-certified dermatologists have years of experience helping people find relief from common and uncommon conditions, such as eczema and vitiligo, through personalized treatment and/or management plans.

Through training, experience, and industry-leading dermatology tools, we can help you identify what is causing your condition and find the best method of treatment available. Contact us and schedule an appointment with one of our providers if you have an undiagnosed and untreated condition affecting your skin, hair, or nails.

Our providers provide comprehensive information on the different types of dermatologists, what skin conditions we treat, and how to schedule an appointment with our dermatologist in Sewickley, Pennsylvania.

A dermatologist is a medical doctor. On average, a dermatologist attends twelve years of education and training to obtain their doctorate and certifications. This includes four years getting a Bachelor’s degree, four years at medical school, and four years in residency. Additionally, many dermatologists go on to receive another year or two of specialty training, such as to become a Mohs surgeon.

Yes, there are a broad range of dermatologists that have received additional training in a subspecialty of dermatology medicine. This includes pediatric dermatology, dermatopathology, surgical dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, and dermatoimmonology.

When you are experiencing an uncomfortable condition, disorder, or disease affecting your skin, hair, nails, or mucous membranes (e.g. the tissue inside your nose and mouth), you visit a general dermatologist for a professional evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment plan. In some cases, your general dermatologist may refer you to a specialist, such as a Mohs surgeon, for more comprehensive treatment.

Dermatologists are highly-skilled in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of skin issues. This may include, but is not limited to:

  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Skin Cancer
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Warts
  • Cysts
  • Moles
  • Calluses
  • Cold Sores
  • Dermatitis
  • Hives
  • Hair Loss
  • Actinic Keratosis
