Your skin is the first line of defense against any pathogens, dirt, and especially the sun. A lot of skin cancer is caused by UV radiation from the sun, therefor detecting abnormalities in your skin can be the first step to maintaining healthier skin. Our machine specializes in finding sections of skin that are not receiving enough water, have aging cuticle, extra pigmentation and oily skin. When pockets of unhealthy skin are found, it could be cause for concern and a reason to follow up with your doctor.
It is highly recommended for individuals who spend a lot of time outdoors to protect themselves from the sun by applying sunscreen. The sun is most intense between the hours of 10am and 4pm, during which time it is best to stay in the shade and out of harm’s way. It is very important to know and understand what state your skin is in. With our screening, a patient can use a built-in mirror within our machine to see and understand what our technician will be explaining to them as the test is going on.
