Dermatology is the specialty of medicine that deals with the treatment of skin diseases. Like other specialties, it has advanced dramatically in recent years. Thanks, in large part, to technological advances.
Augmented reality or artificial intelligence are two of the advances that have allowed a great advance in dermatological diagnosis. This together with new minimally invasive techniques and biological therapies will mark a before and after. This is what the specialists predict.
Teledermatology and advances in genetics, which will make personalized treatments possible, are other lines that are already being worked on within this specialty. For example, the future of early melanoma diagnosis is through digital dermoscopy, which allows the evolution of moles to be monitored.
Advances in the field of generics will reveal the predisposition to developing certain skin diseases. For its part, pharmacogenomics will help dermatologists to know what are the recommended doses and the possible responses to treatments. The use of sensors on the skin will also help a lot with diagnoses.
On the other hand, in the field of aesthetic dermatology, advances go through the development of new minimally invasive techniques (treatments that do not need to undergo surgery). The combination of techniques such as botulinum toxin, with the application of collagen inducers, ultrasound and laser, is already giving very good results in this field.
