How to choose a Dermatologist?
Skin concerns such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne, Moles, Blemishes, Scars can affect you both emotionally and physically. If left untreated, some issues can worsen over time leaving you lacking the confidence you once had. Knowing how to seek help is essential in finding the right solutions to address these concerns.
Below are some important points to consider when choosing a good dermatologist:
Know what your skin condition is and choose a dermatologist that specialises in that skin concern.
Dermatologists can vary in specialty, from those who focus on aesthetics (anti- ageing, fine lines & wrinkles), whilst others diagnose and provide treatment for medical conditions such as, Eczema, Psoriasis, Skin Cancer etc. Therefore, choosing the right dermatologist is key to finding the right help for a specific skin condition.
Consider their credentials:
This is most critical factor to consider when choosing a dermatologist. To become a consultant level dermatologist the doctor must go through several years of specialist training compared to other doctors.

Do your research:
Reading reviews gives insight into patient experience, skills of the Dermatologist and how the clinic generally operates.
