The Importance of Seeing a Dermatologist for Skin Conditions
How often do you look in the mirror, disheartened or frustrated by signs of acne, sweating, hair loss, or eczema? Perhaps the wrinkles weaving over your face are dampening your mood. Or maybe you’re staring at a new-found spot, doubtfully claiming that “it’s probably nothing”.
What do you normally do in these instances? Maybe you dedicate your energy to ignoring your symptoms. You may purchase an over-priced cosmetics cream recommended by your favourite influencer, or ask Dr Google for solutions. Alternatively, you should pay a visit to your local GP for a referral, because seeing a dermatologist when facing skin issues is incredibly important to receive the best health care possible.
You may be asking: why is it important for me to see a dermatologist? Dermatologists are highly trained specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and nail conditions. Although your GP can provide some support in these areas, dermatologists have more extensive experience and knowledge here, and can therefore provide more effective care.
If your normal response to skin issues is finding a treatment online, it’s important that you visit a dermatologist to ensure these measures are scientifically sound, and more effective treatments may be recommended.
At SkinDoc, we stress the importance of visiting a dermatologist if irregular spots are appearing on your skin, rather than ignoring them. Dermatologists can help you detect any cancerous problems early, when they are more treatable.
If you are seeking a dermatologist in Greater Western Sydney, SkinDoc may be a good option for you. At our Liverpool dermatology clinic, our treatments and surgical procedures are conducted by the highly qualified Dr Jennifer Yip. Dr Yip completed her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery at the University of Sydney Medical School.

With this surplus of education, and memberships with various medical associations, Liverpool-based Dr Yip is equipped to provide quality care for skin issues beyond the scope of GPs (and the internet).
Our dermatologist in Sydney provides many services to tackle your skin needs. In terms of skin cancer, Dr Yip performs skin assessments and scans, and conducts surgery on cancerous or problematic spots.
