The health of your skin is important. Find out when an exam is necessary.
A lot of people don’t think about visiting a dermatologist let alone have one; however, skin problems can arise more often than you might realize and when it does it’s important that you have a dermatologist in Wellesley Hills, MA that can provide you with care when you require it. Our dermatologists Dr. Michael Goldaber, Dr. Elaine Kaye and Dr. David Aghassi are here to tell you when it might be time to schedule an appointment.
A good rule of thumb is to visit your Wellesley Hills, MA, skin doctor once a year for a full skin examination. Since skin cancer is so prevalent it’s important that everyone comes in annually for these professional examinations. After all, while you should be performing monthly self-examinations on your skin, most people don’t do a thorough job or don’t even perform these exams as often as they should.
If you are at an increased risk for skin cancer or if you’ve have skin cancer in the past then we may recommend that you come in more regularly for these exams.
However, skin cancer and routine skin examinations are not the only reasons you may want to visit a dermatologist. After all, a dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin problems. Whether you are dealing with psoriasis, hair loss, allergies, acne or dermatitis, we offer many treatment options and individualized plans to address any issues you might have while also reducing the severity or frequency of your symptoms.
Making routine visits to the dermatologist is a good idea for everyone, no matter how healthy your skin might be. In fact, during these routine visits we can also provide you with advice and recommendations for everything from what products to use to what cosmetic procedures could reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Remember that we can help you achieve the beautiful, healthy skin you deserve.
