We also often refer patients to valuable online resources, such as the American Academy of Dermatology’s website, for more information readily available at their fingertips. When you’re ready to discuss your dermatologic concerns, reach out to us!

Who Is the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD)?

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) is among the largest and most influential dermatology associations in the United States. AAD members and the general public can benefit from the resources found on this organisation’s website. Headquartered in Rosemont, Illinois, the AAD has over 20,500 members worldwide and is committed to advocating high standards in dermatology clinical practice, education, and research. Founded in 1938, the AAD seeks to advance the diagnosis and medical, surgical, and cosmetic treatment of the skin, hair, and nails while supporting and enhancing first-class patient care. Media resources on their website include public news releases and updated facts and statistics about dermatology and related dermatologic conditions.

What Type of Information Can Be Found on the AAD’s Site?

Dermatologists (including those at our clinic) benefit from the AAD website’s content when continuing professional development and education. However, patients can find clinical guidelines the AAD has collaborated on, as well as a wide range of mobile apps with easy-to-use-interfaces and information at their fingertips. Explore various topics of importance, ranging from skin cancer and melanoma to acne, hair loss, psoriasis, and rosacea. Learn how to examine yourself for skin cancer and how indoor tanning, sunscreen, and vitamin D all play a role in your skin, nail, and hair health. You can also find details on selecting a dermatologist and everyday care tips from board-certified dermatologists to help prevent skin cancer and other serious conditions.

Why Do We Refer Patients to the AAD for Health Information?

Skincare concerns are universal, with leading experts found worldwide, including the United States. No one understands your skin better than a board-certified dermatologist. The Devonshire Clinic often refers patients to the AAD website for more information about various skin diseases and conditions. They have a helpful A to Z disease database analysing diagnosis, treatment, risk factors, and insider prevention secrets, as well as skincare basics and sun protection tips for everyday care. When discussing our various medical and cosmetic dermatology procedures, it’s natural for our patients to want additional resources to research what to expect from them. Whether you’re interested in learning more about mole removal or dermal filler treatments, we’ll point you toward helpful information.
