You may need acne treatment, cyst removal, have a rash or have some other skin condition that you are unable to treat on your own. When you are having your first consultation with a dermatologist or their staff members, you may be unsure of what you can expect to happen during the meeting. Here are a few of the key steps that will take place during a meeting with a dermatology consultants.
A Discussion About Why You Are Meeting With the Dermatology Consultants
One of the first things that will take place during a dermatology consultation is a discussion about why you are meeting with a dermatologist. Before a dermatologist takes a look at your skin and the problem, they want you to tell them what problems you are experiencing, and any symptoms associated with the skin condition, such as redness, swelling or itchiness. They will also ask you what home treatments or medical treatments you may have already tried to clear the condition up. Lastly, they will ask if you have any other medical conditions or if you take medications. It is important to be truthful as other medications and conditions can impact the treatment method they select.
An Evaluation of Your Skin and Skin Conditions
Once they have finished talking with you, dermatology consultants will start to evaluate your skin. If you are in their office for acne treatment, they will pay close attention to the parts of your body where acne is present, trying to determine the root cause of the acne. If you are in the office for cyst removal, they will evaluate the area around the cyst and work to determine if they are indeed dealing with a cyst or some other type of skin condition.
Putting Together a Treatment Plan That Can Benefit You
Finally, after they have finished evaluating your skin, a dermatologist consultant will put together a treatment plan that can benefit you. This may include treatments and/or medications. It is important to note that it may take some trial and error to find the right treatment plan for your skin, so you need to be patient and be sure to follow up if one treatment method does not seem to be working well.
