If you have questions about your skin care regimen or need help determining your skin type, you can schedule a video visit with your dermatologist to discuss these topics and build a personalized skincare regimen. Your dermatologist will build you a personalized skincare regimen using medical grade skin care products you will have access to through Skin & Scripts’ online store at RegimenPro.
Skin & Scripts has partnered with RegimenPro to give our patients access to over 300 of the top medical grade skincare products. Medical grade products are potent cosmeceuticals used for antiaging and treating conditions such as melasma and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Because these products need to be dispensed under the care of a medical professional, they are typically are only sold inside physician offices. Now, your dermatologist at Skin & Scripts can recommend medical grade products for you during your consultation and give you access to their online store at RegimenPro. RegimenPro will ship you products from the manufacturer directly to your home.
- Teledermatology is great for most skin conditions but not all skin related issues.
- Our dermatologists DO NOT assess/diagnose moles or skin growths. These conditions often need a biopsy for diagnosis thus in office visits are best.
Once a case is submitted, you will receive your treatment plan via email within 24 hours. (Be sure to turn on your notifications to get your alert!)
If your condition requires a prescription for treatment or if you’re requesting a refill for an existing chronic condition, then your dermatologist will send your prescription to your local pharmacy you selected when registering.
You will receive a notification on your phone (if enabled) letting you know your treatment plan is ready in your email inbox.
If you have a question regarding your visit you can email email@example.com for up to 2 weeks after your visit. After that you will need to schedule another visit as a follow up.
- It takes an average of 2-4 weeks of treatment for most rashes / flares of chronic skin conditions to improve. If a patient is not improving after this timeframe, then a follow up visit to discuss a new treatment plan or a recommendation for an in-office biopsy may be necessary. It is recommended that patients with chronic conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis) follow up every 3-4 months. If you’d like a follow up visit you can submit another photo case or schedule a video visit.
- If you are experience a rapid worsening of your skin condition, fever, chills or new symptoms the please report to your local emergency room or urgent care center immediately.
