Skin Check in Mayfield Heights OH
Whether it’s heredity or exposure to the environment, your skin will be impacted in ways that can affect your overall health.
That’s why annual skin checks are so important, regardless of your age. At Allied Dermatology and Skin Surgery, we’re here to help.
We encourage you to set an appointment with us every year. We conduct hundreds of skin checks each year at our Mayfield Heights office, and we know exactly what to look for when examining your skin.
A thorough skin check often takes less than 20 minutes, and it allows us to identify any risks, especially various cancers, that can be treated before they potentially become dangerous to your health.
Equally important, an annual skin check allows us to monitor any areas on your skin that have already been treated. Here’s what you can expect.
