Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine at Heights Dermatology and Laser consists of a virtual dermatology evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for skin, nail, or hair issues that you can engage in from the comfort of your home. 

Telemedicine is an excellent way to receive the care you need when you can’t get to your doctor’s office or want to avoid being exposed to sick patients. You can see your dermatologist virtually using your phone, computer, tablet, or another electronic device.

Why might I see a dermatologist?

You might require dermatology care if you have one of the following issues:

  • Acne or scarring
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Sunspots
  • Thinning hair
  • Unwanted facial or body hair
  • Eczema
  • Infections
  • Skin cancer
  • Melasma
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea

The team at Heights Dermatology and Laser can treat these or other conditions you might experience. Some treatments they offer require in-office visits, but your provider can address many concerns you may have virtually.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Some of the numerous benefits of telemedicine at Heights Dermatology and Laser include:

  • Convenience
  • Time savings
  • Cost savings
  • Quality care
  • Virtual medical evaluations
  • Diagnosis and treatments
  • No sick patient exposure

You receive the same quality care via telemedicine as you do with in-office-visits at Heights Dermatology and Laser. 

Telemedicine appointments are useful for new or existing patients who might require prescription medications, medication refills, or have questions about specific dermatological problems.

What should I expect during telemedicine appointments?

During telemedicine appointments at Heights Dermatology and Laser, your provider calls you at your scheduled time. They review your symptoms and medical history and examine your hair in areas of concern.  

If you require diagnostic testing, such as a skin biopsy, or medical treatments like microneedling, platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), hair transplantation, vein treatments, or laser treatments, your dermatologist recommends an in-office visit.

Which treatments might I need?

After diagnosing your condition, your provider might recommend new medications, medication changes, creams, or other dermatology solutions. They may suggest an office visit if necessary, but they can address many concerns using telemedicine.

Don’t forgo important dermatology visits because you can’t get to your doctor’s office. Schedule a telemedicine appointment with Heights Dermatology and Laser by phone or online today.
