Dermatology is the medical study of skin and the term dermatology and dermatological often get thrown into spa descriptions, especially when it comes to facials.  It's really just a posh word for skin, so don't let it throw you.


Sorry to sound cynical but I often find scientific or scientific sounding words get thrown in as part of marketing speak "here's the science bit – concentrate" and when you read the small print you realise that quoted studies and statistics are just nonsense.  I particularly loved one recent hair care TV advert that promised "thicker, fuller hair" and then had to add on the bottom "the model was styled with hair extensions".
