When you make an appointment with your Greeley dermatologists, you want to make sure any areas of concern are addressed. Your dermatologists at Front Range Dermatology Associates in Greeley are ready to give you their expert advice and treatments for a large variety of skin, hair, and nail issues.
For your next dermatology appointment, here are a few questions you may want to ask:
Does this mole, or other moles on my skin, look suspicious?
Especially if you are noticing any change in moles on your skin, whether that be in size, shape, or color, ask your dermatologist to evaluate them. If there is any risk of Melanoma, we want to catch it as early as possible.
What is this skin condition that won’t go away?
Obviously, we cannot go to the doctor for every single pimple or bug bite. But if you are suffering a skin condition–from rashes to bumps to other nodules–that just will not go away, this is an important question to ask your Greeley dermatologists.
Do you have recommendations for foods I should avoid?
Poor health in our skin, hair, and nails is often an indication of the types of food we are putting into our body. You may be suffering from certain common skin issues caused by lack of nutrition, too much sugar, gluten allergies, etc. Ask your dermatologist for diet recommendations to keep your hair, nails, and skin healthy and beautiful.
What is the best sunscreen to use?
There are so many different kinds and brands of sunscreen out there. How do you know which one you should use? Your dermatologists can recommend the best sunscreen for you, including the SPF number you need for your skin type. Some dermatology clinics may offer a high-quality sunscreen at their offices.
Is cosmetic dermatology right for me?
Cosmetic dermatology includes everything from laser scar removal to BOTOX. Whatever cosmetic procedure you are considering, talk with your dermatologists to see if it’s a good option for you. Certain types of procedures, like Juvederm or BOTOX, may not be available for every age. Depending on your needs, your doctor may even have other recommendations outside of the procedure you are considering.
What is the main cause of my acne?
Diet, clogged pores, and bacteria are major culprits when it comes to an acne problem. However, some find that even when they address those areas, they still cannot get clear skin. An experienced dermatologist can help you begin to find and address the root that is causing your acne.
Will the products I already use at home interfere with the product or procedures I received from you?
Our doctors are passionate about helping you find the right treatments for your skin. That’s why we want to know about the products you are already using at home to ensure that they are fine to use along with treatments and products we may offer you. For example, if you are getting a microdermabrasion, our Greeley dermatologists may recommend that you avoid exfoliating at home for a certain amount of time to keep from over-exfoliating the skin.
What skincare products would you recommend for sensitive/acne prone skin?
If you suffer from sensitive skin and struggle to find products that don’t cause acne or another reaction, you may want to talk to your dermatologist. Skin specialists can help you learn what to look for when choosing your skin care products.
