Full-body skin exams are an important part of health maintenance. Skin cancers cause significant morbidity and mortality if not caught early, so it’s best to be proactive about your own safety by having a baseline exam done every year or when you notice any changes in the way that could point towards newly developing spots on various parts of one’s self-such as brows/face! Most types can easily be treated at this stage.
Just make sure they get identified quickly because too much time spent worrying over what might go wrong will only stress everyone out more than necessary.
During your skin check, the doctor will review your medical history to make sure nothing has changed. They also want a list of current medications and allergies so they can be properly informed during treatment if necessary!
Your dermatologist will be checking your skin for any signs of problems, including moles or spots that may need monitoring. They’ll use a lighted magnifier called the “dermatoscope” to view them closely and determine if they’re normal versus abnormal so you can get treatment as soon as possible! The dermatologists will point out any spots that you may have and explain what they are. If there’s something specific about one of your moles, the doctor can tell us whether it needs monitoring or not. Your doctor will talk to you about your risk of getting skin cancer, as well as healthy habits for avoiding sun exposure and using protection when outdoors. They might also recommend another visit based on what they find during this first exam.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today. The use of laser lights to remove unwanted body hairs has become quite common, with many women choosing this treatment over shaving for its ease and comfortability in their daily lives.
The number of treatments varies depending upon location but can be as few as two or more than six with some people needing up to eight weeks between appointments for their desired results!
What To Expect
The doctor will activate the laser, and you might feel a mild pinprick as it passes through your skin to damage hair follicles. The intense heat from this treatment inhibits new growth.
Treating a small area, such as the upper lip might take only minutes. However, if you were to want treatment on an entire body- then it could be hours before all areas have been treated because of how large our skin is!
If you’re experiencing any discomfort following laser hair removal, such as redness and swelling for the first few hours after treatment completion then it’s likely that a steroid cream will be applied to help reduce this reaction.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and one of its most important. Skin checks are essential to maintaining a healthy, youthful appearance and it’s also good for your mental health too!
The removal of unwanted hair can boost confidence and make you feel more comfortable in your own skin- which is why laser hair removal has become so popular.
