Skin Anti-Aging & Cancer Prevention
With all the products, procedures, and advice that claim to prevent skin from aging or becoming diseased as a result of sun damage, it can be difficult to know what is really important to maintain the health of your skin. Dr Beals suggests the following preventative care to ensure your skin maintains good health as you age.
Daily prevention should include the use of doctor-recommended sunscreens and shade from sun exposure. We carry a very good selection of professional quality sunscreens and skin care products. EltaMD products are not only sunblocks, but also are multi-functional skincare products that provide a few different preventative factors all in one. You’re welcome to come by and purchase products without an appointment. When going to one of our beautiful beaches, wearing a hat can provide a bit of extra prevention with a style boost as well.
Yearly skin cancer screenings/evaluations should be done as the skin is ever-changing and evolving. These evaluations can be performed as part your annual physical exam or can be done with Dr Beals.
Cryosurgery for the treatment of actinic keratosis (a common pre-cancer skin growth) and various other skin conditions can prevent skin cancer and more serious methods of treatment later. Skin biopsies may be used to help diagnose skin conditions and provide scientifically proven results so Dr Beals can provide the best treatment for that specific skin issue.
