A cosmetic dermatologist, or aesthetic dermatologist, is a medical doctor who has attained additional training in dermatology in order to evaluate and treat cosmetic skin issues.

TheConsultation explains Cosmetic Dermatologist

Cosmetic dermatologist’s qualifications include treatments such as Botox, hyaluronic acid and collagen injections, chemical peelings, dermabrasion, laser treatments and, usually non-invasive, liposuction. It usually needs approximately 11 years after high school in order to become a dermatologist. Depending on the procedures she/he desires to perform, additional training may not be necessary in order to become a 'cosmetic' dermatologist, specifically. A lot of cosmetic treatments can be learned during the typical dermatology training. A cosmetic dermatologist can open her/his own private practice or work within a clinic with other doctors.
