  • Whether you’re fighting aging skin or skin cancer, no one is more qualified to help than a dermatologic surgeon. Each year, these skilled ASDS members provide 5 million cosmetic procedures and 2.6 million skin cancer treatments. 

    About ASDS members 

    Dermatologic surgeons have been the pioneers and leaders in the field of cosmetic and medically necessary skin surgery. In fact, the science of many of the cosmetic surgery procedures and skin cancer treatments performed today were either originated or enhanced by dermatologic surgeons, including:

     
    • Laser surgery for birthmarks
    • Liposuction using local anesthesia
    • Hair transplantations
    • The use of many filler substances
    • Most chemical peeling treatments
    • Neuromodulator therapy
    • Laser hair removal
    • Laser resurfacing for wrinkles

  • Dermatologic Surgery

    Dermatologic surgery deals with the diagnosis and treatment of medically necessary and cosmetic conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, mucous membranes and adjacent tissues by various surgical, reconstructive, cosmetic and non-surgical methods. The purpose of dermatologic surgery is to repair and/or improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue.




  • Conditions

    ASDS members treat a variety of conditions to protect and enhance the look and health of the skin – from skin cancer and varicose veins to acne scars, sun-damaged skin, age spots and cellulite.

  • Skin Cancer

    One out of every five Americans will develop some type of skin cancer over the course of their lifetime. However, with early detection and treatment, most skin cancers are completely curable.




  • Skin Care

    While dermatologists can now prevent, maintain and even restore a youthful appearance to men and women of nearly all ages, it's important to remember that healthy skin and good skin care habits begin in childhood and can help in the development of self-confidence and positive self-esteem.
