What to Expect at Metro Dermatology

Embarking on your first dermatology visit can be both exciting and perhaps a bit nerve-wracking, but fear not! This guide is here to walk you through what to expect during this crucial step in your skincare journey.

Scheduling and Check-In

The first step is setting up your appointment. Metro Dermatology provides online scheduling or a phone line to make the process convenient. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by the friendly front desk staff, where you may need to complete initial paperwork, including your medical history and insurance information.

The Consultation: Getting to Know You and Your Skin

Once in the examination room, your dermatologist will begin with a detailed consultation. Expect questions about your skincare routine, any concerns or issues you've noticed, and a review of your medical history. This step ensures a comprehensive understanding of your unique needs.

Skin Examination and Analysis

The core of the visit involves a thorough examination of your skin. Your dermatologist will assess moles, lesions, and any areas of concern. This step is painless and aims to identify existing issues or potential risks. Be prepared to discuss any changes or abnormalities you've noticed on your skin.

Diagnosis and Treatment Plan Discussion

Following the examination, your dermatologist will discuss their findings and provide a diagnosis if necessary. If treatment is recommended, they will explain the options, potential side effects, and what to expect during and after the procedure.

Education and Prevention Guidance

Your dermatologist will likely offer valuable insights into skincare practices, preventive measures, and the importance of regular skin check-ups. This educational aspect empowers you to actively participate in maintaining your skin health between visits.


As your first dermatology visit concludes, you may schedule any necessary follow-ups. Whether it's for continued treatment, monitoring, or preventive care, regular dermatology check-ups play a vital role in your overall health and well-being.

In essence, your first dermatology visit is a collaborative journey towards healthier, happier skin. Embrace the experience, ask questions, and trust that your dermatologist is your ally in achieving and maintaining optimal skin health.
