Skin care center specialists advise patients to come prepared for their first dermatologist visit. As this video explains, you can help your dermatologist to provide more effective acne and skin cancer treatment by collecting the following information.
First, write down all your existing skin problems. Note all current medications, including facial cleansers and acne treatments. If possible, bring recent blood tests so that your dermatologist can avoid administering duplicate tests. If you are seeking dermatology care for skin cancer treatment, bring your skin biopsy report or glass slide if available. Finally, be aware of your family history. Informing your dermatologist of skin issues common to your family is extremely valuable in the prevention and detection of future skin care concerns.
