Individuals looking for skincare advice for acne, rosacea, or eczema, can now access a team of virtual dermatologists. Dermatica is a UK-based platform that gives patients a virtual consultation based on the information and photos they provide on their online profile. The service is a subscription-based model and gives users access to treatments and subscriptions prescribed by the virtual dermatologist
The process asks you to create an account, provide skin concerns and history, and identify lifestyle factors. Based on your diagnosis, products will be delivered to you with free support from the experts on Dermatica. The site advises that ideal patients have "minor to moderate skin complaints" and "short-term condition." Many experts advise that effective skincare takes a minimum of three months for results, so users should not expect a quick-fix.
As more and more industries digitize, virtual consultations may become the norm for skincare in the future.
