What is Dermatology Consultation

A dermatologist is a highly-qualified doctor who specialises in diagnosing and treating disorders related to the skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes.

They play a crucial role in maintaining skin health and addressing a wide range of conditions, from common issues to more serious concerns like skin cancer.

Dermatologists utilise various diagnostic techniques, such as visual examination, biopsies, and advanced imaging, to accurately identify conditions. They also provide personalised treatment plans, which may include prescribing medications and performing surgical procedures. Additionally, dermatologists educate patients on proper skincare routines and strategies for preventing future skin problems. Their expertise is invaluable in promoting overall well-being and confidence through optimal skin health. You can visit one of our dermatologists at The Day Clinic if you are concerned with conditions such as:

  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Skin rashes
  • Pigmentation
  • Fungal infections
  • Skin cancer

The Consultation


During your consultation, one of our dermatologists will begin with a discussion about your medical history, including any prior skin conditions, allergies, medications, and family history of skin issues. This information helps the dermatologist assess potential risk factors and provide a more accurate diagnosis.

The dermatologist may examine your skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes and may use specialised equipment such as dermatoscopes for a detailed view. This physical examination aims to identify any abnormalities, lesions, or irregularities on the skin’s surface. If necessary, the dermatologist may perform additional diagnostic procedures. This could involve taking a skin biopsy, where a small sample of tissue is extracted for laboratory analysis, aiding in precise diagnosis.

Based on their findings, the dermatologist provides a diagnosis and discusses treatment options. This may involve prescribing medications, recommending lifestyle changes, suggesting skincare routines, or proposing procedural interventions like surgical excision for more complex conditions.

Throughout the consultation, the dermatologist educates the patient about their condition, its potential causes, and preventive measures. They may offer advice on sun protection, proper skincare, and lifestyle adjustments. You will have the opportunity to ask questions or seek clarifications about your condition and treatment plan. The dermatologist will ensure you are well-informed and comfortable with the proposed course of action.

The Procedure


Dermatology skin treatments often require a personalised treatment plan to address specific skin conditions. This is a dynamic and tailored strategy aimed at managing skin conditions that involves medication, procedures, regular follow-up, and adjustments as needed to ensure optimal outcomes for improved skin health. The plan is designed to alleviate symptoms, promote healing, and ultimately improve the discomforts associated with your specific concern.

The treatment plan typically involves several components. Medications may be prescribed, such as topical creams, oral antibiotics, or specialised ointments, depending on the condition. In cases of more severe or chronic conditions, other systemic treatments may be recommended. In some cases, procedural interventions are part of the plan. This can range from minor procedures such as surgical excision or cryotherapy to more complex surgical interventions for conditions like skin cancer.

The Day Clinic considers patient education to be a vital aspect of the treatment plan. Dermatologists provide guidance on skincare routines, lifestyle modifications, and sun protection measures to help maintain and enhance the effectiveness of the treatment plan for long-term results.

Aftercare & Results


Regular follow-up appointments may be required to monitor progress. At these appointments your dermatologist will assess the effectiveness of the treatment, check for any adverse reactions, and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Changes to treatment may be required if the initial approach doesn’t yield the expected results, or if the condition evolves over time. For instance, a different medication or dosage may be prescribed, or a different procedure may be recommended based on your response.

I am full of praise for Mr Abood, his team and his clinic. It is a friendly, welcoming environment with ample (and free!) parking. The staff are caring and empathetic, the procedure was straightforward and I felt as though my wellbeing was prioritised at all times. I cannot recommend them highly enough and would definitely return. The care I received before, during and after the procedure was excellent, and it was an overall positive experience.

Yesterday, I attended the Day Clinic for the removal of several moles/lesions. I cannot speak highly enough of the treatment I received and the outstanding way in which it was delivered. This is my second visit to Mr Abood's Clinic, so there was no apprehension nor doubt that the experience would again exceed expectation. I found Mr Abood to be highly skilled and knowledgeable, personable and caring. I felt instantly at ease in his care and had absolute confidence in his professionalism and expertise. A special mention to Rachael too, who was equally welcoming, attentive and very kind. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Abood and his superlative Team. With grateful thanks Deborah Daniel.

Related FAQs

Why should I see a dermatologist?

A dermatologist specialises in diagnosing and treating conditions relating to skin, hair, nails, or mucous membranes. They can help with many common  concerns like acne, rashes or hair loss to complex conditions like skin cancer. Consulting with a dermatologist offers access to an accurate diagnosis, a personalised treatment plan and continued monitoring for skin health.

How do I prepare for a dermatology consultation?

Before your consultation, it’s helpful to gather information about your medical history, medications you are currently taking and any previous treatments you have received. Make a list of your concerns and symptoms. If you have a chronology or diary of when your condition flares up this can be useful. If possible, avoid wearing makeup or nail polish so that the dermatologist can examine your skin and nails more easily.

What treatment options are available?

Treatment options will depend on your diagnosis and the specific condition being treated. Dermatologists can prescribe topical or oral medications or recommend procedures such as cryotherapy or surgical excision. They will discuss the treatment options, the benefits and potential side effects and help you to make an informed decision about your treatment plan.

How often should I see my dermatologist?

This will depend on your skin condition and personalised treatment plan. Some conditions require regular monitoring while others have a specific treatment duration. Your dermatologist will provide information and guidance about follow-up appointments and any recommended ongoing care.

How long will it take for my dermatology treatment to work?

The length of time it takes for a dermatology treatment to work depends on various factors including the specific condition being treated, the severity of the condition, the treatment method and individual patient factors such as overall health and response to the treatment.  In general, acute conditions, such as certain infections and allergic reactions can usually be resolved relatively quickly, sometimes within a few days.

On the other hand, chronic conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema may require longer ongoing treatments.  It’s common for these conditions to take several weeks or months before noticeable improvements can be seen.  Patience and consistency with treatment are key to managing and staying on top of chronic conditions.

Other treatments such as cryotherapy and excision procedures can provide immediate results.

Your dermatologist will discuss timeframes and expected results in relation to your specific condition during the consultation.
