Knowing who is treating your skin is an important component of patient safety. This video, made by ASDS Fellow, Dr. H.L. Greenberg, won an award for the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery’s video contest.
This video emphasizes why you should consider choosing a dermatologic surgeon for all of your skin evaluation and treatment needs. Dermatologists are experts in diseases and treatments of the skin, this includes minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
Per the ASDS website, asds.net, “The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery is the largest specialty organization exclusively representing dermatologic surgeons who have unique training and experience to treat the health, function and beauty of skin. Dermatologic surgeons are the ideal providers for minimally invasive office-based procedures because they routinely treat the skin, hair, nails, veins and underlying tissues to repair and improve the function and appearance of the skin. Cosmetic procedures are medical procedures. Know your provider’s level of licensure, training and experience.”
