04 Jan Get Your Annual Skin Exam
Make the most of your new insurance benefits by scheduling an annual skin exam. It’s a great way to prioritize your health this coming year. Spectrum Dermatology offers comprehensive skin exams to help you keep your biggest organ healthy and looking great. Some people only think about seeing a dermatologist to tackle aesthetic issues like wrinkles and acne—but there’s so much more to skin care.
The most common cancer in the US is skin cancer. Also, melanoma is among the deadliest forms of cancer, but it doesn’t have to be. When caught early, skin cancer treatments are fast, painless, and highly effective. However, most people don’t do self-skin checks or get an annual skin exam. You see a lot of your skin every day. But what about the areas you can’t see? How can you keep track of suspicious moles that you do see every day?
Why Annual Skin Exams Are Important
Annual skin exams should be a top priority, just like an annual physical. The latest technology for “mole tracking” lets your dermatologist track moles and mole patterns (constellations) to compare to past and future visits. It can be tough to remember if a certain mole had such uneven edges when you see it on a daily basis. Mole tracking during your annual skin exam is an important part of keeping potential skin cancer in check.
For those with health savings accounts (HSAs), a trip to the dermatologist is also a fantastic way to capitalize on these accounts. During an annual skin check, you can also talk to your dermatologist about any skin concerns. Do you want to find out more about options for addressing wrinkles? What about dry, flaking skin or persistent acne? Everything from acne scarring to issues like rosacea have various avenues for treatment. By partnering with a dermatologist, you’re taking a proactive approach towards total care for your largest organ.
