Choosing A Doctor
Treatment with a physician with understanding of the skin is imperative. Ideally you will consult with a physician whose training involved the skin. It is also important to go to a physician who has access to a variety of treatment options, so the likelihood they can treat you effectively is increased. Not all patients can be treated the same way, with the same device. You want to make sure that they’re not just using one device for every patient who walks in, regardless of their case.
Further Reading on Choosing a Doctor
Doing your research and understanding your condition are also important. Is there something out there that is better for what I have than what this particular doctor is offering me? And certainly don’t go to see somebody who is not medically trained or who does not have medical supervision from a physician.
Here are some questions to consider prior to treatment:
- Are you a board-certified physician?
- Is there a board-certified physician of any kind in the office?
- Will you perform a test patch to see how the treatment results may look?
- How much experience do you have at performing this treatment?
- Are there alternative treatments which may be more effective for my skin?
- What’s your medical specialty? (Dermatology, Family Medicine, etc.)
- Do you have any references? Before and After photos?
