MoleSafe has chosen Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery’s state-of-the-art Windermere office as the first location in Florida to make the MoleSafe Skin Surveillance Program available, Kevin Sheridan, CEO of MoleSafe recently announced.
“There are over 1,250,000 individuals who have been diagnosed with melanoma in the US and millions more who are considered to be at high risk,” says Dr. Mark D Kaufmann, Chief Medical Officer, MoleSafe USA. “Our world class Skin Surveillance Program combines total body photography, with clinical and dermoscopic imaging of moles/lesions, allowing MoleSafe to more accurately distinguish between benign lesions, and those suspicious enough to warrant a biopsy. The evaluation is performed by Board-Certified Dermatologists who are pigmented lesion experts.”
One in five people will get skin cancer in their lifetime. That’s a sobering statistic. Skin cancer, including melanoma, the most dangerous kind, can appear at any time in life and the risk increases as you age. When detected early, however, skin cancers are almost always treatable.
“We continue to bring the most effective diagnostic and treatment tools to our patients, and we’re excited to partner with MoleSafe,” said Dr. Matt Leavitt, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Advanced Dermatology. “By harnessing their leading-edge Skin Surveillance technology to access high-quality images of individual moles, we can identify changes as early as possible, offering an even greater level of skin cancer detection. From this we can potentially identify problems earlier and treat patients more quickly and effectively.”
So how are skin cancers found early? Knowing what skin changes to look for can help but scheduling your annual Total-Body Skin Cancer ExamSM by an Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery provider trained in skin cancer detection is the best place to start.
Our providers can tell you if they think you are a candidate for MoleSafe which looks deep into a mole’s structure to detect potential skin cancers that can’t be seen with visual skin exams.
