Ready, set, spring into booking your skin check!

Spring is finally here! As we leave the chilly winter months behind and embrace warmer weather, it’s important to remember to take care of our skin. After all, skin is the body’s largest organ, and it’s exposed to the elements every day. That’s why we at SkinMD want to remind you to come in for your annual skin check this spring. The CDC recommends reporting any unusual moles or changes in your skin to your doctor and discussing if you are at increased risk of skin cancer. Here are some benefits of getting a yearly skin check:

Catching skin cancer early

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, and early detection is key to successful treatment. During your skin check, our dermatologists will examine your skin for any suspicious moles or growths that could indicate skin cancer. According to, in the United States, about 3 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer are diagnosed each year, and rates have likely been increasing for decades but have recently stabilized. Greater public awareness has led to higher rates of screening exams, self-exams, and the detection of nonmelanoma skin cancers.

Preventing skin damage

Even if you don’t have any concerning moles or growths, a skin check can help identify areas of sun damage or other issues that can lead to skin problems down the line. One major cause of skin damage is prolonged exposure to moisture, something that is often overlooked, says the NIH. When skin is wet, it becomes more susceptible to damage from friction and shearing forces, and skin flora can penetrate the disrupted barrier, causing further irritation and inflammation. By catching these issues early, we can help you prevent further damage and keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. 

Peace of mind

When it comes to your health, there’s nothing more valuable than peace of mind. Knowing that your skin has been thoroughly examined by a dermatologist can help you feel confident and secure in your health.
