Frequently Asked Questions

Regular visits to your dermatologist are essential for maintaining optimal skin health. Our team recommends scheduling an annual comprehensive evaluation and exam to ensure any underlying issues are promptly identified and addressed. Even concerns you may not notice can be detected by our trained professionals. By proactively visiting us once a year, potential problems can be caught early, making treatment more manageable. For individuals managing chronic skin conditions like acne or psoriasis, more frequent visits, perhaps every few months, may be necessary to ensure ongoing care and management.

Many individuals underestimate the importance of sunscreen in their daily routine. In reality, applying sunscreen should be a year-round habit, regardless of the weather conditions. Even on cloudy, snowy, or rainy days, UV rays remain active and can harm the skin. It's crucial to apply sunscreen to both your face and body every day to shield against potential damage.

Ensure that the sunscreen you use has a minimum SPF of 30 and provides protection against both UVA and UVB rays. If you're unsure about which sunscreen is best suited for your needs, our dermatologist can offer personalized recommendations tailored to your skin type and concerns. By incorporating sunscreen into your daily regimen, you can safeguard your skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation and promote long-term skin health.

There are numerous compelling reasons to seek the expertise of a dermatologist. While anyone invested in the well-being of their skin, hair, and nails can benefit from annual visits, there are specific instances where consulting a dermatologist is particularly prudent. You may find it beneficial to see a dermatologist if:

  • You're grappling with severe acne or if your current at-home treatments aren't yielding results.
  • You notice a mole that appears suspicious or undergoes changes over time.
  • You experience symptoms such as redness, cracking, scaliness, or a burning sensation on your skin.
  • Addressing signs of aging is a priority for you.
  • You're encountering hair loss and seek professional guidance.
  • You suspect you might have a skin infection that requires attention.


In these situations and more, consulting with a dermatologist can provide tailored solutions and peace of mind for your skin health concerns.

An annual skin cancer screening is recommended for everyone, and conveniently, it can be integrated into your yearly checkup with the dermatologist. This brief examination, typically taking just a few minutes, holds the potential to be life-saving. Utilizing your regular visit for a comprehensive skin check allows for early detection of any suspicious lesions or abnormalities, enhancing the chances of successful treatment.

Individuals with a family history of skin cancer or other risk factors may consider discussing the possibility of more frequent screenings with our team. By staying proactive and vigilant about your skin health, you can minimize the risks associated with skin cancer and ensure timely intervention if needed.
