Dermatology Consultations Q & A

What are dermatology consultations?

A dermatology consultation is an outpatient appointment used to diagnose and treat conditions that affect your skin. 

Skin is the body’s largest organ. It contains various components, including blood vessels, hair follicles, sweat glands, and nerves. Keeping your skin smooth and problem-free is essential to your general health.

Following a dermatology consultation, the team at South Texas Family Medicine and Urgent Care Center can develop a custom treatment plan that keeps your skin vibrant and healthy.

Who can benefit from dermatology consultations?

You might benefit from a dermatology consultation if you have:

  • Acne
  • Moles
  • Skin tags
  • Skin cancer
  • Rashes
  • Rosacea
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • A skin infection
  • Wrinkles
  • Sunspots
  • Abscess

The team also provides dermatology consultations for people experiencing hair loss and nail problems, like nail fungus.

What types of treatment do dermatologists provide?

Dermatology treatment falls into three categories:

Medical care

Medical care involves your provider diagnosing and treating a skin-related health problem like rosacea or acne. Your dermatologist can identify the underlying cause and make recommendations to relieve uncomfortable symptoms.

Surgical care

The team at South Texas Medicine and Urgent Care Center regularly performs minor surgical procedures, including mole, skin tag, wart removal, and skin biopsies.  If you need more extensive care, the team can refer you to a specialist.

Cosmetic care

Certain skin problems, like acne, wrinkles, or sunspots, can affect your appearance. Cosmetic treatments like prescription ointments or lotions can minimize their appearance and transform your skin.

What does a dermatology consultation involve?

At South Texas Family Medicine and Urgent Care Center, a dermatology consultation begins with a review of your medical history and a discussion of your symptoms. Afterward, your provider physically examines your skin and checks it for warning signs of potentially serious issues like skin cancer.

Once your provider makes a diagnosis, they develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs. That might include:

  • Laser therapy
  • Prescription-strength ointments or lotions
  • Chemical peels
  • Cryotherapy
  • Cosmetic injections
  • Dermabrasion
  • Mohs surgery
