People have always been prone to skin problems like other diseases. But they are different in many ways. Skin problems are less problematic in the beginning and are therefore taken lightly. In underdeveloped and poor localities skin problems are not considered worth spending money on. This lack of awareness and disregard for skin care results into serious problems. Usually, that is the stage when most people start to look for treatments. What they do not appreciate is the fact that by the time they decide to come to the doctor, the problem might have become grave making the treatment more time taking while increasing the costs.
For so many years people had accepted skin deformities as part of their life or have been trying those treatments which could not produce results. In worse cases such unorthodox treatments have even caused more problems to such people instead of resolving otherwise manageable issues with their skin. What people must know is that skin problems of serious nature can cause serious physical problems while skin problems which affect one’s appearance can result into equally serious psychological problems.
These trends are changing, thanks to internet, social media, education and awareness. This awareness has brought improvement in people’s quality of life as most of the untreated skin problems would adversely affect their ability to perform various tasks according to their roles in society. Moreover, especially in urban areas, modern life and increasing living standards have made people recognize the importance of personal appearance.
One major source of awareness about people’s understanding and response about skin diseases and Skin Care has been the word of mouth. What it means is that when people initially started to go to qualified doctors for their skin problems, they got good results. It led to spread of word about what good results can be achieved if you have qualified skin specialists around.
Therefore, we can say that it is up to the hard work, dedication and commitment of qualified dermatologists or skin specialists who have been able change the mindset of the common people about this major health issue.
When we talk of qualified and respectable names in the field of health services, Skin Care specially needs skillful and compassionate handling of treatments and procedures. One name stands out who is undoubtedly the best dermatologist of Islamabad using best practices of skin treatment on state-of-the-art skin treatment machines. This name is Prof. Dr. Ikram Ullah Khan.
