Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin and its diseases, a unique specialty with both medical and surgical aspects. A dermatologist takes care of skin diseases, in the widest sense, and cosmetic problems of the skin, hair, and nails.
The dermatologists at The Baton Rouge Clinic are leaders in the fields of medical and surgical dermatology and treat all age groups. They offer general skin screenings for patients who do not have a specific complaint. They have also trained in their residency on a wide range of cosmetic procedures including Botox, fillers, and laser surgery (See Aesthetic & Cosmetic Dermatology for a more complete listing).
