As the global health pandemic carried on in 2020, and social distancing orders lingered, many people sought alternatives to traditional face-to-face medical care, partly to avoid exposure to infection and partly just for simplicity. Fortunately, the ever-growing field of telemedicine offers a sound option — particularly, for people with skincare concerns like acne, wrinkles, and rosacea, that don’t require emergency medical intervention.
This article discusses 4 benefits of using telemedicine for dermatology, and how Nava MD's virtual dermatology clinic is leading the way.
First, what exactly is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is a form of remote health care where patients and medical providers communicate online or by phone, rather than in person. It enables patients to receive many of the same services they’d get at a brick-and-mortar doctor’s office and pharmacy — from the comfort, safety, and convenience of their homes. Despite its rapid rise in popularity, telemedicine is more than a fad. Experts believe demand will continue to increase, even as the virus wanes and social distancing restrictions are lifted.
Nava MD is an online dermatology clinic that’s using telemedicine to optimize every aspect of the patient experience, from the virtual consultation process to their personalized, results-driven approach to aftercare.
Here are four ways Nava MD is revolutionizing dermatology with telemedicine:
Depending where you live, it can take weeks to get a dermatology appointment, and that’s only if you have a good dermatologist in your area. Nava MD allows you to get the skincare attention you need, anywhere, anytime. Complete our online consultation and a licensed clinician will review your case to prescribe the perfect formula for your skin and condition, if appropriate. Once you place your order, you’ll receive your medication in as little as two business days — so you don’t have to stand in line at the pharmacy. It’s also ideal for elderly or disabled people who are unable to drive themselves to and from appointments.
Seeing a dermatologist can be really costly -- and that’s not counting the money you can hemorrhage on prescription medications. Nava MD is making skincare more affordable than ever. When you use Nava’s progressive telemedicine platform, your consultation is completely free — no insurance necessary. Plus, by cutting out the middleman and shipping medication directly to patients, Nava MD offers premium prescription formulas for prices much lower than what you’d pay at your neighborhood pharmacy.
Many healthcare matters are extremely sensitive and personal, causing some patients to put off going to the doctor because they feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. But with Nava MD, your experience is the complete opposite. Telehealth allows you to do things on your own terms.
Nava MD Makes Dermatology Safe
Given the current Covid-19 pandemic, many people are wary of going to the doctor’s office — especially if they're immunocompromised or considered “high risk” for the virus. Nava MD allows patients to be treated for various skin issues without increasing their risk of getting sick.
Of course, telemedicine isn’t suitable for everyone and everything. Depending on the issue you’re being treated for, you may need to go to the doctor in person. For example, if your doctor requires blood or urine samples, or needs to perform an examination or procedure, communicating online simply won’t work. But as Nava MD has shown, telemedicine is an excellent option for patients who want to improve the look and feel of their skin. Get started yourself with a virtual consultation today.
