Just as you schedule your annual physical or trip to the dentist, it is important to schedule a professional skin exam once a year with your dermatologist. Skin is our largest organ, so it’s very important to give it the attention and care it needs.

 

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that everyone check their skin regularly for any new or suspicious spots. The most positive health outcomes occur when a condition is found early, and this not only applies to skin cancer, but also with hair loss, acne, rosacea, psoriasis and other problems that can worsen with time.

 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A FULL BODY SKIN SCREENING

 

A full body skin exam is a thorough examination of your hair, skin, nails and mucous membranes. It is a visual inspection of your skin by a medical professional. No blood work is conducted at a screening.

 

In order to prepare for the appointment, we recommend:

  • In the weeks prior to the appointment, take notes about any concerns you have, such as dryness, acne and unusual growths. Come with a list to talk through with the dermatologist.
  • Do not use makeup, skincare products and hair products, such as hairspray and styling products, prior to the appointment.

 

 

During the exam, the dermatologist will start at your head and move down your whole body. Special attention is paid to areas that are prone to sun exposure, such as the ears, back of the neck and nose, as well as any freckles, moles and other abnormalities. Screening normally takes approximately 60 minutes*

* Further testing and screening may be recommended based on the findings
