How should you prepare for an acne consultation with a dermatologist?
By: Dr Magnus Lynch

In order to get the most from your consultation and ensure that all of your concerns are addressed there are a few things that you can do to prepare for your consultation:-

  • Make a list of the treatments that you have tried previously, how long you used them for and whether they were effective.
  • Make a list of questions that you have for the dermatologist.
  • Take some photographs in the weeks (use this app!) before your appointment as the severity of acne can fluctuate.
  • Do some research as to what treatment options are available and think about which of these might be suitable for you.
