Consultation Process

During a dermatology consultation, the dermatologist will conduct a thorough examination of your skin, discussing any concerns or symptoms you may have. Be prepared to provide a detailed medical history, including current medications and skincare routines. They may also use specialized tools to closely examine specific areas of concern.

Before the Consultation

To make the most of your consultation, compile a list of current medications, note any changes in your skin, and be prepared to discuss your medical history. Arrive with clean skin, free from makeup or skincare products. This aids the dermatologist in making accurate assessments.
