It can be debilitating to be unhappy with your appearance or to deal with a cosmetic issue. Perhaps you are concerned because your lips are thinning, or maybe you desire smoother skin and a revitalized appearance. Whatever the concern, it’s a good idea to consult a dermatologist. But how do you know what to look for in this type of medical professional? And how do you find someone who is qualified?

Things to Consider

It’s critical to find someone who is board-certified and reputable so you know you are getting safe, quality care. When you begin your search, you can consider asking family and friends for a recommendation. They can give you a first-hand account of what it’s like to work with a particular doctor. However, if you live in the Santa Monica or NYC area, you’re in luck because you’re close to us at Grossman Dermatology.

Dr. Karyn Grossman’s site outlines what her practice offers. She and her team provide treatments that can do everything from subtly enhancing your appearance to giving you a dramatic change – and everything in between. She can smooth your skin using non-surgical techniques and use fillers to give you fuller lips. Dr. Grossman treats male and female patients of every age.

Initial Consultation 

You’ll want to schedule a consultation with the dermatologist. Your may want to compile a list of questions and concerns that you want to discuss during your visit. At that point, Dr. Grossman and her staff will talk to you about your concerns and what they can do for them. She can also perform a physical exam and take note of your overall health and medical history to make sure you are a good candidate for the work you want to have done.

During this meeting, you will learn about what to expect if you elect to undergo a treatment or procedure. Dr. Grossman and her team will talk to you about anything you need to do to prepare and what to do afterwards as far as care goes, as well as if you will have any temporary restrictions.

It’s very important that your expectations are realistic and attainable so that you are pleased with the results. Find out what our dermatologist and staff at Grossman Dermatology can do for you. Our offices are located in Santa Monica, CA and New York, NY. Contact us today to book an appointment.
