Problem Skin Solved

Problem Skin Consultations

Problem skin conditions can easily be treated by a medical doctor with a special interest in skin. Dr Wade Merchant has a special interest in skin as well as Aesthetic and Anti-aging medicine. Most of the time, all a patient needs is the correct diagnosis and treatment. Waiting months to see a specialist only prolongs the suffering of someone living with problem skin.


Skin Conditions Treated

Dr Wade treats many different skin conditions, so if there is anything not on the list just ask:

    • Teenage Acne
    • Adult Acne
    • Male and Female Hair Loss
    • Excessive Sweating – Hyperhydrosis
    • Hyper-pigmentation and Melasma
    • Chronic scripts for dermatological conditions

Can I claim back from my medical aid?

Yes – An invoice with the relevant medical aid codes will be sent to you via email following your consultation. This can be used to claim back from your medical aid.

What if I have a Dermatologist?

If you have a chronic skin condition that has stabalised and is doing well on the treatment that your Dermatologist has prescribed, all you likely need is a review by a medical doctor and a repeat prescription. Dr Wade is more than happy to review your progress and issue you with a repeat script. Should there be any concerns, he will liaise with your specialist in order for you to get the best care possible. Effective medicine is a team effort!

What are the costs involved?

All consultations including follow up’s are charged.

Additional costs may or may not include:

  • Blood tests at Pathcare.
  • Prescription creams collected at your local pharmacy.
  • Specially compounded treatments specific to your skin type. These are paid for upfront and are collected within 5 working days from the practice.
