Skin Conditions a Dermatologist can help with
A dermatologist can help to diagnose and treat any condition which affects the skin, and also often the nails and conditions such as hair loss. Visitors to private dermatology clinics usually look for support with conditions such as:
- Unusual moles and skin cancer screening
- Lesion and mole checking in general
- Pigmentation problems
- Unknown rashes
- Hair loss
- Warts and verruca
Treatment may include a range of different therapies dependent on the condition.
Surgery can be arranged for the removal of warts, cysts, skin tags and other lesions to the skin. It may also be possible to arrange cryotherapy which freezes a localised area for the removal of warts or treating conditions like solar keratosis. These are just some of the possible treatments which may be necessary to alleviate the symptoms of a skin condition and your chosen dermatologist in London will discuss your options with you before going ahead with any particular treatment.
Dermatology Referral in London
To be referred for a private dermatology appointment there are two usual routes.
You can self-refer and contact the doctor directly or you can get a referral from your GP.
GP referrals are usually recommended if you are hoping to claim on your health insurance as they are often a condition of the policy.
Private consultations have the benefit of being arranged in keeping with your schedule and usually very quickly, avoiding the waiting lists that can unfortunately be the norm when awaiting an NHS dermatology referral.
Your private dermatologist will carefully examine your problem and provide advice and recommendations for treatment. Even if you do decide to go forward with surgery, this can usually be arranged very quickly.
