Dermatology is a branch of medicine which focuses on the skin, hair and nails and its related diseases. The discipline became popular in 1801 when the first great school of dermatology was founded at the Hospital Saint-Louis in Paris. Traditionally, this discipline was combined with the diagnosis and treatment of venereal diseases. The modern dermatology emerged only in the early 20th century, when it became a separate branch of medicine, focusing on the observation of cutaneous symptoms.
There are various fields of dermatology, including cosmetic dermatology, dermatopathology, Mohs surgery, immunodermatology, pediatric dermatology, dermatoepidemiology and teledermatology.
As well as this, dermatology includes various therapies such as excision of skin cancer, hair removal with laser, cryosurgery, cosmetic filling injection, hair transplantation, laser therapy, photodynamic therapy, phototherapy, tumescent liposuction, tattoo removal, radiation therapy, vitiligo surgery, allergy testing, tropical therapies and systemic therapies.
