From being proactive about keeping your skin healthy to seeking effective treatment for a skin, hair or nail issue, there are numerous reasons why you might make an appointment with a dermatologist office.

In this article, we’ll offer tips on how to know when you or your child is due for a trip to see a trusted dermatology provider.


When Is It Time to Make an Appointment with a Dermatologist Office?


The appropriate time to see a skin care professional will largely depend on the reason for your visit. Here are some guidelines for various skin care needs:

  • Skin Cancer Checks – When detected and treated early enough, skin cancer has a high cure rate. But, time is of the essence, so it’s crucial to visit a dermatology professional for a thorough skin cancer screening at least once a year. If you notice any suspicious spots between annual exams, be sure to make an appointment with a dermatologist promptly.
  • Medical Dermatology – From acne to alopecia, a wide range of skin, hair and nail conditions fall under the category of medical dermatology. If you have persistent symptoms that are bothering you, it’s time to arrange an appointment with a medical dermatology specialist.
  • Pediatric Dermatology – A number of skin, hair and nail conditions are specific to infants and children, including diaper rash and seborrheic dermatitis (cradle cap). If your child has a birthmark or is experiencing lingering skin irritation, see a pediatric dermatology expert for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
  • Cosmetic Rejuvenation – To help keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay, both women & men may opt to receive anti-aging treatments such as Botox. The right age to begin doing so will vary from person to person. Some may add cosmetic injections to their skin care routine as early as their 20s, whereas others may wait until their 40s or later to start getting these treatments. A dermatology professional can help you decide on the best treatments and timing to achieve your personal skin goals.
