To Health and Beyond

Medicine is one of the most respected professions around the world. Helping the sick and changing their lives for the better is what doctors live for. However, it is a hectic and stressful profession involving human life. A single mistake or medical malpractice can put a patient’s life in danger and have adverse effects. However, dermatology is one of the most crucial and in-demand branches of medicine these days. We are well aware of the fact that dermatology focuses on the issues related to skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. This field is related to cosmetics and mainly deals with the appearance and comfort of an individual.

Being a dermatologist is among the most critical jobs in the world, where an expert must have incredible clinical and diagnostic skills. Apart from that, excellent attention to detail is another prerequisite. Furthermore, their job requires them to study their patients thoroughly before conducting any procedure, mainly because they must be delicate with their treatments. More than just qualification, the field of dermatology needs persistence, study, research, and a good grasp of modern medical science. And Dr. Rola Shahadat is a renowned dermatologist with an exceptional career record as well as an incredible success rate. Her expertise and hard work have made her a household name among gulf countries.

Dermatologists are experts when it comes to diagnosing skin problems ranging from mild to extreme. Their research and dedication have pushed medical science towards exceptional advancement, hence making many skin issues easily curable. Patients who visit dermatologists are often insecure because of their skin issues such as acne, scars, dryness and other skin problems, which can cause low self-esteem. Apart from that, people who lack confidence due to their facial features opt to go to expert dermatologists such as Dr. Rola, who specializes in cosmetics that include non-surgical skin and beauty treatments as well as fixing asymmetry. It is their duty to help such individuals not just be better physically, but their effort also contributes to assisting patients in enhancing their personalities and shining more brightly. 

According to Dr. Rola, she always tells her patients that the only way to succeed and change what they desire is to believe in themselves and their doctors. “It is important to be positive and stay away from stress and self-loathing because no external or medical treatment can be successful for you without trust and relaxation, and patience,” she elaborated.

Most skin treatments can last for a few months, even though there are new technological advancements in the skincare world, such as laser treatments and surgeries. However, those who prefer natural changes through organic medicine must show tolerance towards suggested remedies. For dermatologists, gaining their patients’ trust in their treatment is one of the most complex parts of their job. As the skin condition changes from one patient to another, dermatologists like Dr. Rola treats every patient exclusively. She stated, “I have above 90% success rate, but that’s because I make a deal with the patients in the consultation to follow my instruction and treatment plan and have faith in the treatment and themselves, which is the key for skin altering to be successful, I choose patients who want to help themselves.” Dr. Rola Shahadat believes that many skin problems can be avoided if one seeks professional help at the early stages. In fact, it can stop the disease from spreading. 

Dr. Rola Shahadat’s determination and positive mindset have undoubtedly helped her to carve a niche for herself in the field of dermatology. Her ability to understand what her patients want and her expertise in guiding them to achieve desired results make her unique and one of the best dermatologists out there.
