Even trained MDs can be challenged by patients’ skin conditions, and finding evidence-based integrative dermatological information is virtually impossible.
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2017
Dermveda, the online resource for personalized skin health information, announced the release of its educational platform, dermveda.com, offering access to quality, science-backed information on skin conditions, beauty, and wellness from trusted skin care experts. Visitors to the platform can customize their experience to suit their personal skin care needs and preferences.
Founded and created by dermatologists and alternative medical practitioners, Dermveda integrates modern and traditional medicine to provide a comprehensive educational resource focused on skin. Dermveda is committed to scientifically proven, results oriented best practices for a new interdisciplinary approach to skin care.
Founder Venita Sivamani shares, “Our vision is to be the trusted resource for skin care and education. We have spent years carefully building a one-of-a-kind team to provide access to the best skin health information, written, vetted, and reviewed by leading experts in medicine and cosmetics. We aspire to help people learn how to cultivate healthy vibrant skin and manage any skin conditions that may develop.”
More people are turning to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for treatment, and according to the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, up to 69% of patients utilize CAM in their lifetime. Dermveda aims to guide this growing group of alternative medicine seekers to scientifically sound information from respected skin health experts in the CAM disciplines.
The platform provides access to original content written by the interdisciplinary Dermveda team, select articles from subject matter experts, specialized tools to profile skin types and personalize content, and a beauty blog dedicated to actionable skin care tips, tricks, and tutorials.
Dermveda’s Skin Type Profiler provides a free analysis of each individual’s skin type from the perspective of four different medical disciplines: Western (dermatology), Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine), and Naturopathy. Once visitors learn their skin type and complete a free profile, the rest of Dermveda’s integrative content and tools are customized to match the unique skin profile established.
There are nearly 3.7 million skin cancers diagnosed in the US annually, which is more than any other type of cancer combined. May is Skin Cancer Awareness month and the Dermveda team has prepared a number of articles to help visitors learn more about skin cancer, its potential causes and preventive techniques, along with healthy ways to approach tanning.
“Our skin is a precious resource, and often does not receive the attention it needs. Paradoxically, in the Information Age, it can be very difficult to find credible information about how best to treat afflictions such as acne or eczema, or to learn prevention tactics for more severe conditions like skin cancer. Even trained MDs can be challenged by patients’ skin conditions, and finding evidence-based integrative dermatological information is virtually impossible. Our site is designed to help bridge that information gap and bring much needed education and a variety of perspectives directly to people who want and need it. Personally, I’m thrilled to be part of this diverse team and to share my knowledge on a wider scale,” shares co-founder and board certified dermatologist, Dr. Hadar Lev-Tov.
