What happens in a dermatology consultation?

Most dermatology consultations start with the doctor reviewing the patient's medical history and asking about symptoms or complications the patient may be experiencing. After these initial steps, a physical exam, or a visual exam, of the affected area will usually be done so that the doctor can assess what skin condition may be affecting the patient. In certain cases, based on the doctor's findings, further testing may need to be done. These tests may include blood tests, skin samples, or biopsies to check for cancers or underlying conditions.

If further testing is not required, the dermatologist or physician can give medical advice to the patient about treatment plan options and next steps. This way the patient has an understanding of available options and possible next steps.

There are no risks associated with video dermatology consultations, as these online visits are meant to diagnose conditions. Video dermatology consultations can play a key part in creating treatment plan options to help reduce the effects of skin conditions and catch skin issues before they become more severe.

Can doctors on Sesame refill my skin care prescription?

Yes, book an online appointment with a doctor or provider on Sesame to get a prescription either delivered directly to you through SesameRx or sent to a local pharmacy of your choice.

I’m concerned that a mole may be cancer. Is this the right visit?

Many skin screenings can be done over video with a Sesame provider, however, your doctor may need to see you in person. If needed, your doctor may request follow-up visits to perform biopsies or additional lab work to confirm any initial diagnosis. A visit with a dermatologist near me can help with many of these issues.

I’m at high risk for skin cancer. What do I need to do?

Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, is not as common as the other two major types of skin cancer. A skin cancer screening with a total body skin examination (TBSE) is arguably the safest, easiest, and possibly the most cost-effective screening test in medicine. This can be done by most doctors and nurses. There is no national consensus on how often to get screened but high-risk patients should be screened more frequently. Many providers recommend lifelong dermatologic surveillance for patients with a personal history of melanoma including, a family history of melanoma in two or more blood relatives, the presence of multiple atypical moles, the presence of numerous actinic keratoses (precancerous lesions that are grey to pink colored scaly patches of skin on sun-exposed areas of the body).

An in-person or video skin consult is a good place to start for an affordable skin cancer screening.

What’s the difference between seeing a family medicine physician and a dermatologist?

In short, primary care / general practitioners/ family medicine providers can treat most non-serious skin issues. They are generally a good place to start for most skin issues including mild acne, warts, minor rashes, bug bites, simple cysts, dandruff, rosacea, athlete’s foot, and mild, benign lesions.

If the GP doesn’t clear up the problem or the problem is deemed more serious by the GP, it’s time to consult a specialist.

Specialists are often more expensive than a general primary care doctor and you may have to wait longer to see a dermatologist.

Do I need a referral to see a dermatologist?

Nope! Some insurance networks won't cover a dermatologist visit without the referral of a primary care physician, but in most cases, you do not need a referral to see a dermatologist. You do not need a primary care physician's referral for cosmetic dermatology, for instance. Cosmetic procedures such as Botox, chemical peels, and fillers are elective, so all you need to do is get in touch with a cosmetic dermatologist to set up a consultation.
