With beautiful spring weather already here, now is a good time to focus on your skin and prepare for summer!
Where to start? A complete, total body skin exam to check for any suspicious skin lesions is an important first step. Since skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in humans, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends that all adults receive a complete skin exam every year. This is the best way to catch skin cancer in its earliest and most curable stage.
At The Menkes Clinic, we are board-certified dermatologists who strive to offer the highest level of dermatologic care to our patients in a friendly, state-of-the-art practice. In addition to a thorough skin screening and treatment of all skin conditions, we also help our patients create a daily skin care regimen tailored to their skin type. We are highly experienced in formulating a skin care plan that is appropriate for you. This includes the three basic goals of skin care: cleansing, protecting and correcting your skin.
Our practice treats patients of all ages from newborns to adults, with a keen understanding of the different needs of men and women in their 40s, 50s and beyond. For example, our personalized skin care approach adjusts for patients aged over 50 who look best with smooth slightly “shiny” texture rather than a matte finish to the skin. Light reflection from the skin looks fresher, and is actually the opposite of a matte finish. Therefore, avoidance of powder foundations and products is key for improving the appearance of mature skin.
Other common skin concerns such as adult acne, brown spots, broken capillaries, and fine lines can also be effectively treated with little down time and no surgery. At The Menkes Clinic, we want our patients to look refreshed and natural-appearing. With summer fast approaching, let us help you maintain healthy, beautiful skin.
