Some Skin Problems are Best Helped by a Specialist. Here’s How Choosing a Dermatologist Can Help.
From hormonal breakouts to dry, rough skin-we all have skin issues from time to time. But, if skin issues continue, they can have a significant effect on one’s comfort, self-confidence and mental health. For example, psoriasis has been related to depression, and acne can have a huge effect on hindering your confidence. Although going to your general practitioner is a great first step in treating any recurring problems or chronic skin disorders, the dermatologist ‘s knowledge might be of best use if your problems persist. A dermatologist will not only be able to alleviate your symptoms with regular treatments, they can even help you to fully eradicate many of them-and restore some trust in you. Thus, choosing a dermatologist is significant in your first step towards proper treatment.
Who is a dermatologist, exactly?
At London Dermatology, we are a team of medical doctors who specialize in dermatology after medical school before taking advanced consultants’ exams. Our dermatology specialists are experts on everything related to skin, hair and nails and their wellbeing. No other doctor has the same degree of competence or experience.
What would a dermatologist do?
We are qualified dermatologists in London, trained to diagnose and treat over 3,000 different diseases in patients of all ages from birth to old age. These include, among others, acne, eczema, skin cancer and psoriasis treatment.
Treating Body Marks and Age Spots
We also enhance the appearance of our patients’ skin, hair, and nails, including reducing the severity of acne or skin cancer scars, treating skin pigmentation problems, and removing signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and age spots. Only experienced dermatologists in London like us can be accredited with result-based treatments for which our reviews speak for themselves.
We use a wide variety of advanced methods to treat these disorders, including surgery, laser and light therapy, cryotherapy, and application of drugs to be applied to the skin or taken orally.
Who is a Cosmetic Dermatologist?
Our cosmetic dermatologists are trained dermatologists with more experience in cosmetic procedures to enhance the appearance of the skin, such as removal of harmless moles, treatment of sunspots or pigmentation, facial redness and acne scar treatment. Our cosmetic dermatologists are also qualified to provide anti-aging treatments.
When Should You Consult Our Cosmetic Dermatologist?
If you want some sort of cosmetic skin care, you should always see a cosmetic dermatologist. Many cosmetic procedures available for the skin, such as wrinkle treatments, skin fillers and chemical peels, can be performed correctly and securely. These procedures include an expert knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the skin and its underlying tissues-this experience is an integral part of the medical training our dermatologists undertakes to qualify for this discipline.
What should you look for when you select a cosmetic surgeon?
Unfortunately, there are no strict laws or regulations in the UK that prohibit a person from calling himself a dermatologist, cosmetic dermatologist, or a skin doctor. This makes it even more important to do your homework and review your doctor’s qualifications. Don’t get caught by someone who pretends to be anything they’re not while choosing a dermatologist.
- Always check the registry of the General Medical Council (GMC). What you need is the name of the treating physician. All UK trained physicians will be recorded in the GMC registry.
- Only a doctor who has completed advanced dermatology training will also be on the “Specialist Register” unless they have qualified overseas in their specialty.
- If you find that your skin doctor is not in the specialist registry, don’t be afraid to inquire why. Anyone who has been properly trained would not mind the issue.
- If you are searching for an approved dermatologist to conduct a cosmetic operation, search for places such as the British Cosmetic Dermatology Community that have GMC-registered specialists identified before choosing a dermatologist.
How Do You See a Dermatologist?
There are a variety of approaches to consult with a dermatologist. The best way to do this is to see your GP and seek a referral to the national health specialist. If your GP thinks this is necessary and is unable to handle it, they will refer you to your nearest dermatology clinic.
If you have private health insurance, you can also ask your GP to refer you to a private dermatologist like us. Alternatively, if you would like to see a dermatologist with a medical or cosmetic problem without a GP referral, you can call the office directly to make an appointment.
