Dear Faithful Followers,

Have you given the above much thought….Of course not…. Why would you? Most of us assume a well trained person is performing the injections.

Lets us at CVD enlighten you. Dermatology is the study of diseases of the skin, hair and nails. Your skin is the largest organ in your body. To become a dermatologist, one has to complete the following:

4 years of college;

4 years of medical school;

1 year internship;

3 years dermatology residency.

After dermatology residency, most dermatologists endure rigorous testing to become Board Certified. Why not have a skin specialist perform your cosmetic injections.  So faithful readers the next time you visit your physician for cosmetic injections, be sure to check his/her credentials. It makes good sense.
