What to Expect When You Visit a Dermatologist
Your skin is the biggest organ on your body and is connected to a number of health issues and conditions. Healthy skin not only looks good but directly impacts your overall health. Our dermatologists in Fort Morgan are trained on all skin-related issues and can provide personalized treatment on a number of conditions, ranging from acne and signs of aging to eczema and skin cancer. Visiting a dermatologist is a great step not only for your skin, but also for your overall health.
Here’s what to expect when you visit a dermatologist in Fort Morgan.
Before Your Visit
To make the most of your appointment, pay attention to your skin in the days and weeks before seeing the dermatologist. Look for any areas of concern or changes to your skin and make a list of any questions you may have. Prepare for your visit to the dermatologist by familiarizing yourself with your health history, including any family history of skin-related conditions like eczema or skin cancer. Bring an updated list of your current medications to share with your doctor.
To give your dermatologist a clear view of your skin, remove any makeup and nail polish. Some jewelry can get in the way of the doctor performing a full skin examination or interfere with treatments, so take off large jewelry pieces and wear comfortable clothing.
During Your Visit
The health and condition of your skin is closely related to your overall health, so a dermatologist will likely ask questions about your health history, lifestyle, and diet at your first visit. You will also be asked to complete a set of forms about your health history, including any previous surgeries, any pre-existing health conditions, and any history of health issues in your family. Being honest and open about your health history can help the dermatologist better understand your risks for certain skin conditions and recommend the best options for you. Previous health problems or medications might not seem relevant to your current skin conditions, but they can still be important for your dermatologist to know about.
After discussing your health history, the dermatologist will perform a skin exam. If you are visiting for a specific concern, like a rash or acne, the examination may be limited to just the affected area. However, if you are visiting for a skin cancer screening or have concerns that relate to skin all over your body, the dermatologist will likely ask you to put on a robe so they can look over the skin on your entire body. Many dermatologists also do full-body skin exams on a patient’s first visit to establish a baseline for skin health. If that is the case, the doctor or nurse will leave the room and allow you privacy to change before and after the examination.
The skin examination allows the doctor to see up close any discoloration, rashes, or changes to your skin. After looking over the skin, the doctor will likely have a discussion with you about the health of your skin and provide diagnoses or recommendations for treatment. If the dermatologist found anything concerning during the skin evaluation, such as an oddly shaped mole, they may request a skin biopsy to test the cells for cancer. In a biopsy, a small area of skin is removed and sent to a lab for testing.
Before you leave your appointment, the doctor will likely provide a detailed treatment plan. Dermatologists treat a wide variety of skin conditions, with treatments ranging from lifestyle or diet changes to prescription creams or pills. In some cases, the doctor may recommend laser therapy or other treatments.
After Your Visit
After you leave the dermatologist office, be sure to follow through on the treatment plan. Fill any prescriptions and be diligent about taking the oral medicines and applying the creams according to the directions. Prescription skin products tend to be much stronger than what you can get over the counter, which means you need to follow their directions precisely and can see results much faster.
The dermatologist will likely schedule a follow-up appointment depending on your condition. Before your next appointment, keep up on the treatment plan and note any changes or improvements to your skin or overall health that you can discuss with the doctor. If anything worsens dramatically before that appointment, call the doctor to be seen sooner.
Visiting the dermatologist is an important step to getting healthy, beautiful skin. Knowing what to expect before, during, and after your appointment can help ease any anxiety and prepare you for the best experience possible.
