Three Ways to Prepare for a Visit to the Dermatologist

Are you planning your first trip to the dermatologist? We have put together a small list of tips to help you prepare for your appointment:

Remove Your Makeup – It does not matter if you put makeup on every day of your life, it is crucial that you remove all of your makeup before coming in to see your dermatologist. Makeup is going to stop them from seeing your skin and making a diagnosis. If you come in with makeup, we will have to wait for you to take it off.

Remove Nail Polish – Did you know that some skin cancers and other problems can be found in your nail beds? Fungus can also be found on nails, which will lead to body rashes. If you have an appointment at the salon coming up, you should cancel it until after a dermatologist sees you.

Book an Appointment Before a Special Event – Certain skin treatments can cause your skin to look inflamed and irritated. If you have a special event planned later in the day, you should consider making your appointment on a day before or after your event.

Count on the team at Colorado Skin Care to provide you with a wide array of services. When you choose one of our providers as your dermatologist in Denver, you can rest assured that we will do our best to help you with your medical and cosmetic needs.
