Dermatology is a branch of medicine concerned with diseases of the skin, hair and nails. But the spectrum of dermatological applications now also includes a number of aesthetic treatments. For a dermatologist or a general practitioner, an optimal illumination, best possible magnification and precise, sharp images are the most important requirements for a reliable diagnosis and a successful treatment.
The most important diagnosing instrument in dermatology is the dermatoscope, also called reflected-light microscope. The early diagnosis of skin cancer is of particular importance and plays a substantial role to significantly increase healing chances. In our section “All about Dermatoscopy” you can find a guideline for skin cancer screening, the ABCD rule of dermatoscopy, information about black and white skin cancer and further indications of dermatoscopy, such as Alopecia areata or head lice.
