No matter what your reason for visiting Dr. Grossman is, she performs full skin checks for all patients because she is a medical professional who believes in the importance of skin health.
Skin Health: The Most Important Thing
It all starts with a skin health check. For Dr. Grossman, the most important aspect of your initial consultation is evaluating your skin’s health. From there, she will discuss your areas of concern and will go over options.
Why Perform a Skin Check?
Many patients want to skip their skin check and go straight to addressing their cosmetic issues. However, with thousands of new cases of skin cancer each year, a skin health check is key. Even if you’ve never sunbathed and think you have a pretty good handle on protection, you’re not immune to the potentially devastating effects of daily sun exposure. All of Dr. Grossman’s patients—including the ones who resist at first—end up being very grateful to have learned the true health of their skin. My process involves evaluating your skin’s health, listening to and assessing your aesthetic desires, and devising a comfortable and realistic treatment plan together to get you closest to perfection.
What Does a Skin Check Involve?
Dr. Grossman’s skin checks typically involve a head-to-toe skin assessment and take approximately 30 minutes. If Dr. Grossman finds anything suspicious, she will make note of it and monitor it, or perhaps decide to biopsy it.
