Why You Should Visit A Private Dermatologist

Dermatologists treat patients with a wide variety of skin, hair and nail conditions. Being seen by a private dermatologist can be life changing, because it offers the opportunity to get an expert’s perspective on how to tackle any issues that you might be having. You’ll get seen more quickly when you visit a private dermatologist and have access to all the most innovative and cutting edge solutions and care.

What does a dermatologist do?

Provide support and medical treatment for problems that relate to your hair, nails and skin. A general physician is unlikely to be able to treat problems as effectively as a dermatologist, which is why you’re likely to be referred to a specialist like this if you’re having issues with your hair, nails or skin. Specialist dermatologist treatment means the issue is usually identified more quickly and with greater precision.

When should you visit our private dermatologist consultant?

You don’t need a referral from an NHS doctor to make an appointment with a private dermatologist, you can do this at any time. There are many different ways that a private dermatologist can help you to resolve problems with the skin, hair and nails – these are some of the most common:

  • Early detection of skin cancer – Annual cancer screenings with your private dermatologist will give you the opportunity to ensure that skin cancer, especially melanoma, is detected early to give treatment the best possible chance of success. These screenings are painless and simply involve having your skin checked, head to toe.
  • Effective acne treatments – Acne can have a very negative impact on the life of anyone who is struggling with it, especially if it feels out of control. A private dermatologist will have access to the most advanced treatments for acne and be able to help identify the specific solution that will be right for you. Acne could be the result of hormones, inflammation or bacteria and, as we are all individuals, the solution needs to be individual too – that’s why a private dermatologist can make such a difference.
  • Helping to treat hair loss – While hair loss can be very distressing, sometimes all that is required is simply working out what the cause is and treating it. There are a very wide range of possible causes for hair loss, including hereditary conditions or certain medical conditions. When you visit a private dermatologist they will help you establish the origin of the problem and explore all the options available.
  • A bespoke approach for your skin – Each of us has a different experience when it comes to our skin and will benefit from advice and treatment that takes this into account. Whether you have eczema or sun damage or you’re just looking to learn the best way to take care of your skin through the years, a private dermatologist can help. And with no waiting lists you can access the support you need, whenever you need it.
