What to expect at your dermatology appointment

At Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists, we know that the health and appearance of your skin is important to you. Our dermatological team works every day to provide solutions for new and existing patients who are interested in cosmetic or medical dermatology treatments. We understand that working with a new doctor’s office may seem daunting, but we take time to educate patients on what they can expect at their first dermatology appointment at Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists.

How to prepare for your upcoming dermatology appointment

The area being evaluated should be clean and easily accessible. Patients will also want to make sure that they bring their medical insurance information as well as a list of any medications, vitamins, or supplements that they take on a regular basis. If you are discussing skincare solutions, add onto that list any skincare products you use daily, such as the type of facewash, moisturizer, or medical products. This gives our dermatologists an idea of the treatments currently being performed and help patients find a better solution that meets their needs and addressees their skin concerns.

How long does a dermatology appointment take?

The length of time needed for the appointment varies greatly from patient to patient, depending on the purpose of their visit. A full body skin cancer screening will often require much more time than a patient who has a small rash they’d like to address. Patients should plan accordingly based on the complexity of their problem. Additionally, if patients are being seen to discuss antiaging solutions and choose to have injections done, these may be done during the same appointment or scheduled for another day.  If you have any concerns regarding the length of time needed for the visit, please ask our front office staff when you call to make your appointment.
