The initial consultation is an important part of the diagnostic process. The initial consultation requires that you come in for a 10 - 15 minutes appointment. This gives the doctor an opportunity to examine your skin, formulate a diagnosis and provide you with a personalised and effective treatment regime.
If the doctor feels it is necessary, he may ask you to have some testing carried out to help in identifying your condition.
The follow-up consultation is not necessary for all patients but many conditions do require ongoing treatment. These conditions include acne, eczema, psoriasis etc. Some medications, for example, Isotretinoin, requires monitoring as there can be side effects. The doctor will be able to tell you if you need to come back for more analysis.
A consultation is needed to examine your skin and discuss your wishes and aspirations. Once the doctor knows how you would like to look, he can give you advice and put forward a personalised treatment regime.
