On Your Initial Visit to the Dermatologist
There are a number reasons to see a dermatologist. You may have a specific reason such as acne, acne scarring or skin irritation. You may have concerns about a suspicious mole or growth. You may want to reduce signs of wrinkles and age spots.
You can make the most of your appointment by being prepared. Be sure to bring a list of all medications and supplements you are taking and show up free of jewellery, hair bands, nail polish and, if possible, makeup so your dermatologist can have an unobstructed view of your skin.
