Men and women have different concerns when caring for their skin, hair, and nails. Besides apparent differences like facial hair and male pattern baldness, testosterone causes men to have thicker, oilier skin than women. Men also have more and larger pores than women, have increased risk factors for skin irritation, and are more likely to develop skin cancer. Because of all this, the mistakes men often make when caring for their dermatologic health can differ from those women make.
Resolution season is upon us! “New year, new me” is a common mantra after a most uncommon year. Many of us are looking forward to growth opportunities in every area of our lives. While upgrading skin, hair, and nail health with the help of an online dermatologist is a pretty obvious use of our services, using telemedicine as a tool for intentional improvement is an innovative approach to a longstanding tradition.
It's a common misconception that telemedicine is reserved for single-visit issues like rashes, bug bites, and other urgent but non-emergency diagnoses. While online services are especially useful in dealing with these conditions, virtual visits are certainly not limited to acute ailments.
