Video Skin Consult

What is a video skin consult?

Video skin consultations are used to connect patients to primary care providers and dermatologists, for skin health conditions such as acne, warts, moles, and skin cancers, as well as urgent care concerns such as bug bites, burns, rashes, and cold sores.

Sesame offers both dermatology and skin consult appointments via video visits. Video skin consults are primarily used to help patients with urgent care concerns regarding the skin (such as those listed above). However, these visits can also help individuals determine whether or not they need to see a specialist to address their concerns. If you aren't sure whether or not you need to see a dermatologist, video skin consultations may be helpful in answering some of your questions and helping you with next steps.

What happens during a video skin consultation?

Video skin consults use video chat platforms (like Zoom, Skype, or Facetime) to connect you to a doctor. It is recommended that you find a private place with a strong internet connection for your video visit.

Your doctor will ask you questions about any medical conditions and skin problems you have experienced. This is a good time to discuss symptoms, or any specific concerns you have. They will also ask you questions about your skin care routine, and medications you may be taking. While some of these questions may not seem related to skin-health, they may help doctors get a better understanding of your general health and wellness.

Your doctor may then conduct a visual examination of your skin. You may be asked to disrobe, which is why a private and secure location is recommended for these visits. Doctors will check your skin for signs of skin problems such as:

  • Skin cancer
  • Burns
  • Bug bites
  • Rashes
  • Suspicious moles
  • Warts

Depending on their findings, doctors may request a follow-up appointment to discuss the results of the exam with you. While doctors are able to diagnose a number of conditions via video visits, an in-person visit may be required to definitively diagnose certain conditions. If your doctor suspects you may be exhibiting some warning signs of skin cancer, for example, you may be asked to go to their office for a biopsy.

If you do not require a follow-up appointment, but your doctor determines that medication may be appropriate as treatment, they can write a prescription after your visit and order free delivery to your home. Before beginning treatment with any medication, be sure to talk to your doctor about dosage and how best to administer the drug.

What do dermatologists do?

Dermatologists are medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the skin, hair, and nails. You may seek a video consultation with a dermatologist to discuss skin concerns such as:

  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Rashes
  • Psoriasis
  • Skin cancers (melanoma or squamous cell carcinoma)

  • Skin lesions
  • Skin ulcers

In addition to treating a number of conditions, Doctors of Dermatology can discuss more general skin health questions you may have. Due to their 12+ years of schooling, dermatologists become highly trained skincare experts. During an online video consultation, they may advise you on skincare concerns such as:

  • Skincare routines/ skincare regimens
  • Skincare for different skin types
    ​- Anti-ageing practices
  • Skincare products/ skincare ingredients to buy or avoid

What is the fastest way to see a dermatologist?

If you are experiencing an urgent skin condition that requires immediate attention, book a video visit with a real doctor in Ritchie, AR on Sesame right away.

  • Rashes
  • Burns
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Bug bites
  • Cold sores

Dermatologists generally treat chronic and long-lasting skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, warts, and skin cancers. If you are experiencing any of these conditions, it is recommended that you book a video dermatology consult through a telehealth platform like Sesame.

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?

No. Telehealth platforms like Sesame connect you directly to doctors, so you do not need a referral from a primary care provider before scheduling an appointment with a dermatologist.

So affordable. So simple. So easy to use.

You've never seen prices this good because healthcare has never been this simple.
