Our skin is our largest organ, which, due to the exposure of its surface, is constantly exposed to various environmental influences and numerous pathogens. Our skin is the first line of defense of our body, consisting of 3 parts: the subcutaneous tissue, the dermis and the top layer, the epidermis. Mechanical protection of the skin takes place in the dermis, where the hair follicles and sebaceous glands can be found. One of the most important purposes of the subcutaneous tissue is thermal insulation, this layer consists mainly of adipose tissues. The condition of our skin also faithfully reflects our health status. Many people do not know this, but most dermatological symptoms hint to internal diseases of the body. This is one of the reasons why regular dermatological consultations are recommended. The dermatology of our medical center consists of excellent specialists recognized for their work.
The purpose of the dermatological consultation is to map out the individual skin problems, examine lesions and thoroughly inspect moles. During the examination, patients will be in the hands of our excellent, experienced dermatologists. In many cases, various skin lesions can indicate serious internal organ and even cancerous diseases, so it is especially important to take them seriously. A 6-monthly or yearly dermatological consultation is also recommended even if there are no complaints, with the aim of checking the moles. Regular inspections make it easy to discover possible changes.
Consultative examinations in dermatology, just as in all fields of expertise, begin with the admission of your anamnesis (medical history). It is important to look into previous skin diseases and to monitor diseases that run in your family, possible inherited skin diseases. After that, the mutated skin surface causing the complaint is examined. The specialist will first examine the area with the naked eye, then, if necessary, with the help of a dermatoscope (skin microscope).
In the case of mole screening, it is important to go over the whole body and inspect each mole separately. Therefore, it is also necessary to discover moles that may not be clearly visible, that are in hidden places.
After the examination, the dermatologist will make a diagnosis, recommend further treatment and, if necessary, recommend further examination. After the date and time agreed upon with the specialist, it is strongly recommended to take part in a dermatological check-up.
Always come to dermatological consultations with clean skin, nails, and hair. If you have a complaint or a skin lesion, it is important that you do not treat it with any substances, medicine, or creams in the few hours prior to the consultation, so that the specialist can see the skin lesion in its true state. Dermatological consultation is completely painless. If possible growths need to be removed, it is always done under anesthesia.
