Your Skin Is The Largest Organ Of Your Body — Let An Expert Take Care Of It
Your Skin Matters!
Being the largest organ of your body, your skin protects you throughout your life. The most important function of skin is to form a protective barrier between the external world and you!
Your Body Depends On Your Skin
Your body is the window to your body! How? Well, if anything goes wrong inside your body, your skin is usually the first to raise the alarm such as severe acne on your face can signal hormonal imbalance. Moreover, pale skin complexion usually means iron deficiency, etc.
The Skin Is Your First Line Of Defense
Whether it is hot or cold outside, your skin maintains your body temperature. Moreover, the sun’s damaging UV rays, pollution, viruses, and bacteria are also blocked by your skin from entering your body.
Provides You The Supply Of Vitamin D
Are you not a fan of eggs or milk but still need Vitamin D for maintaining healthy and strong bones? Then let your skin make it for you! As you go out in the sun, your skin starts the Vitamin D making process using cholesterol.
Your Skin Makes The First Impression!
When you meet someone, do you notice their skin other than their eyes, nose, or lips? The skin of a person tells a story about him or her and their lifestyle.
While a dry skin texture can reveal that someone is dehydrated, sunspots are a sign of aging and a shiny healthy glow can, on the other hand, look very attractive!
Would you take your broken car to a bookshop or an automobile repair shop?
Similarly, for issues related to your skin, nails and hair, you seek help from someone who has vast knowledge in skin science. So would you go to a beauty parlor or salon? A beauty spa? Dr. YouTube? Or a dermatologist?
The correct answer is a dermatologist. Always!
Who Is A Dermatologist?
Dermatologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, examination, and treatment of different skin diseases and conditions. They can also identify signs on your skin that could reveal internal issues such as organ dysfunction or disease.
Any concern related to your hair, nails, and skin can be easily handled and treated by a dermatologist.

Not Every Skin Doctor Is A Dermatologist
In Pakistan, especially, there are many people claiming to be medical professionals while others have become self-proclaimed skin doctors. Such fake healers and quacks either have a simple diploma or a course (local/international) and practice like a genuine doctor!
Do you know that every year, 500,000 people, mostly women and children, die in Pakistan as a result of wrong prescription, improper treatment, and faulty advice?
A genuine doctor or a dermatologist is one who has undergone at least 6 years of continuous and intense medical training after completing medical college. Moreover, they have also passed their post graduation exams. The entire medical education of a lawful doctor is recognized by the Pakistan College Of Postgraduate Medicine.
What You Can Do To Avoid Fake Healers?
We always advise patients to always see a genuine skin doctor or a dermatologist for their skin problems.
- It is your right to ask your doctor about his or her education, professional experience such as the number of treated patients.
- A genuine doctor should never feel offended, frustrated, or hesitant to address your curiosity.
- Stay away from anyone who tries to sell you treatments or has a sales pitch.
Lastly, take a second opinion and weigh your options before saying yes to your treatment!
