What is Skin Treatments

A dermatologist is a medical professional 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, performing surgical procedures, or offering cosmetic treatments like Botox or chemical peels. 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 our dermatologist at The Day Clinic if you are concerned with conditions such as:

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

The Consultation


During your consultation, our dermatologist 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. Next, the dermatologist will examine your skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes, using specialised tools like magnifying glasses or 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 laser therapy or surgery 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. Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions or seek clarifications about your condition and treatment plan. The dermatologist will ensure you’re 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 based around your concerns and is designed to alleviate symptoms, promote healing, and ultimately improve the discomforts associated with your specific concern.

The treatment plan typically involves several components. Firstly, 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, systemic treatments like oral medications may be recommended. In some cases, procedural interventions are part of the plan. This can range from minor in-office procedures like mole removal or cryotherapy to more complex surgical interventions for conditions like skin cancer.

Furthermore, The Day Clinic considers patient education as 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 are crucial to monitor progress, and will be made on the advice of the dermatologist. At these appointments we’ll assess the effectiveness of the treatment, check for any adverse reactions, and make adjustments to your treatment plan if this is necessary. 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.

You will be discharged by our dermatologist when your skin condition has significantly improved or resolved, and there are no further concerns requiring specialised care. Once the condition is stable and you have been equipped with appropriate self-care knowledge, you may be discharged from regular dermatological care.

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.
