Skin Cancer Prevention
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is dangerous and can cause premature aging, sun spots, and skin cancer. These UV rays and the usage of UV tanning beds are the two main causes of skin cancer. Sun damage can also accumulate over the years from sunburns, prolonged sun exposure, and simple everyday activities like walking your dog, potentially leading to skin cancer.
Fortunately, skin cancer can be caught early by examining your skin monthly and having annual dermatologist visits. If caught early, it can be treated more easily with little or no scarring and high chances of eliminating it entirely. At All Seasons Skin & Surgery Center, we recognize the importance of protecting your skin from the sun to prevent sun damage and skin cancer. We recommend you:
We also offer high-quality skincare products to purchase and take home, enabling our clients to continue or begin a skincare regimen. Our exclusive skincare brand features first-class formulas that help hydrate, nourish, and protect your skin, as well as three advanced formulas of sunscreen so you can protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and prevent sunburn and skin cancer.
Skin Cancer Treatments
When you first visit All Seasons Skin & Surgery Center with any skin concerns or changes, your skin and body will be examined, and our staff may take a biopsy (sample) of suspicious skin growths for testing. This can be a preventative measure and also helps the doctor to determine if you have skin cancer and what type and stage it is.
If you are diagnosed with skin cancer or have any precancerous cells, our doctor will discuss available treatment options with you. There are different types of treatment for patients depending on their type and stage of skin cancer, but one of the most promising treatments we offer at All Seasons Skin & Surgery Center is photodynamic therapy or blue light therapy. It prevents and treats pre-cancerous skin cancer lesions (actinic keratoses) that are often found on the face, ears, and scalp. It works by causing the photosynthesizing drug that’s been applied to the skin to react with oxygen, killing the cancer cells. Depending on the type and stage of your skin cancer, you may also need to explore another treatment option, such as surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or chemical peels.
