Objective: Cosmetic dermatology has recently gained importance with the recent increase in demand. The aim of this study is to identify cosmetic dermatology training in Turkey and to assess instructors' attitudes toward cosmetic dermatology training during residency and current cosmetic dermatology practices. Methods: This is a cross-sectional questionnaire study conducted with instructors to investigate the practice of cosmetics dermatology, the technical equipments, number of patients, and their ideas in the clinics that provide dermatology specialty education in Turkey. Results: At least one cosmetic procedure was found to be performed in 69% of the clinics that participated in the study (n = 55), and no cosmetic procedure was performed in 31% of the clinics. The mean number of application was 13.2 12.3 weekly in the clinics that performed cosmetics procedure. The most common procedures were botulinum toxin injection with 63.6% (n = 35), chemical peeling with 60% (n = 33), and platelet-rich plasma with 60% (n = 33), respectively. The most common laser application was neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (28/55). The mean time spent for cosmetic procedures was 1–5 h weekly in the clinics which performed cosmetic procedures. Seventy-six percent (n = 42) of the participants felt inadequate for performing cosmetics procedures, and 95% (n = 52) reported that cosmetic dermatology education was required. Conclusions: Both theoretical and practical education must be given in educational clinics, and the infrastructure must be created, and the educational schedule must be standardized.

Specialty education is an organized education program with theoretical and practice studies of residents. Medical faculty graduates can study dermatology in Turkey after passing the medical specialty examination (MSE) which is held twice annually, and dermatology specialty education lasts 4 years in university hospitals, and training and research hospitals hospitals affiliated to the Turkish Ministry of Health. There has recently been an increasing interest on dermatology, and the mean MSE scores required for entering the dermatology specialty are higher than all other specialties. One of the reasons of this is the increased demand for esthetic and cosmetic procedures.

Dermatologists have contributed significantly to the evolution of cosmetic and esthetics dermatology including laser treatments, dermabrasion, botulinum toxin, chemical peeling, hair transplantation, and soft-tissue augmentation. Aspects of cosmetic dermatology include the maintenance of healthy skin, the prevention and treatment of skin aging and photodamage, and rejuvenation procedures. To continue as leaders in the safe performance of cosmetic dermatology procedures, future dermatologists must be properly trained. Moreover, dermatologists who received no cosmetic education are less preferred in private hospitals and clinics, and they may feel unqualified. Furthermore, if a training gap exists, this may adversely affect patient safety.

Moreover, there are many dermatological diseases which could be treated with cosmetic procedures. These indications are laser procedures for rosacea, infectious disorders (mostly papillomavirus lesions), the removal of hairs and tattoos, vitiligo, vascular lesions, cutaneous scarring, some skin tumors, postlesional hyperpigmentation and melasma, mesotherapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for androgenetic alopecia, botulinum toxin injection for hyperhidrosis, as well as chemical peeling, Dermapen, and dermaroller treatments...

Adequate photoprotection has become an integral part of ourtherapeutic programs, which include protective clothing, shade, wide brimmedhat, sun glasses and effective sunscreens. With the advent of cosmeticdermatology and cosmetic procedures effective photoprotection has becomealmost compulsory. In the past few years many sunscreen ingredients have beendeveloped and adequate information about these has become almost necessary.Various harmful effects of UV rays, from the sunburn, photodermatoses to thecarcinogenesis are well known. We need effective ideal sunscreen to protectfrom all these effects. An ideal sunscreen should provide broad spectrumphotoprotection (290-760), photostable, non-toxic, aesthetically acceptableand affordable. [sup][1]

Sunscreens were originally developed to prevent sunburn. Howeverthey are now used for various dermatological diseases, after cosmeticprocedures and to prevent carcinogenesis [sup][1] [Table 2].Table 2

All cosmetic procedures have associated risks. As the incidence of soft tissue augmentation has increased, as would be expected, adverse effects have been reported more commonly. In a survey of 286 patients, McCraken et al. recently reported a 5 percent complication rate among ophthalmologists performing soft tissue augmentation procedures. This article will emphasize the prevention, identification, and treatment complications with a focus on temporary fillers. Permanent fillers (such as Artecoll) permit greater longevity with which comes the greater risk of adverse sequelae. These permanent substances present a greater risk of causing late-onset (>one year) granulomas.
