What Is a Skin Assessment?

A skin assessment thoroughly evaluates the skin's condition, including its texture, tone, and overall appearance. One of our licensed medical professionals or dermatologists evaluates your skin to identify any underlying issues that may be affecting its health and appearance. The primary objective of an in-office skin assessment is to identify any potential skin problems or underlying conditions that may require medical attention.

What to Expect

During your in-office skin assessment, our medical provider will examine your skin for signs of damage, such as sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration, and evaluate the skin's hydration levels, oil production, and pore size, as well as any existing skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, or eczema. Performed in a clinical setting, the assessment uses specialized equipment and techniques to evaluate the skin's texture, color, moisture level, elasticity, and health. Based on our assessment, you will receive a personalized treatment plan to help improve your skin's health and appearance.

The Importance of Regular Skin Assessments

Regular in-office skin assessments are recommended to maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin. By identifying skin issues early on, our board-certified medical providers at Skin Care Doctors can provide targeted treatments, high-quality skincare products, and preventative measures to help keep your skin looking its best. With the help of advanced technology and techniques, in-office skin assessments are becoming more accurate and effective, making it easier than ever to achieve healthy, glowing skin.

The provider will examine the skin for moles, lesions, or other abnormalities during a skin assessment. They may also use a dermatoscope, a handheld device that magnifies the skin, to look closely at any suspicious areas. If any areas of concern are identified, a biopsy can determine if it is cancerous. Regular skin assessments are critical if you or your family has a history of skin cancer, if you have a large number of moles, a history of severe sunburns, or if you spend a lot of time in the sun.
