What happens when you see a Dermatologist for the first time? I want to give you an idea of what to expect and what you can do to prepare. You should know that we look at ALL of your skin. Most skin cancers appear on sun exposed areas. However, it can occur in areas where the sun doesn't shine. So, expect us to check those areas too! Don't worry. You won't be hanging out in your birthday suit. We have you keep your under garments on and provide you with a gown or drape to cover up with.

How to prepare:

- Remove all nail polish as skin cancer can hide under nail polish.

- Do not wear make-up. We want to see your skin without any camouflage.

- Don't have a tan. We like your skin to be in it's most natural state so we can determine what is normal and what is not. Plus, we don't like tans anyway.

- Wear loose fitting clothing so that it is easier to change.

- Circle any lesions you may be concerned about with a pen or make a list. This way we can address all of your concerns.

- Tell us about previous sunburns or your history of tanning bed use.

- Bring any products you may be using on your skin.

- Bring an updated medication list and know your medical history.

See you at your appointment!
