The end of the summer can make anyone feel a bit wistful, as the long days and constant sunshine come to an end. Though many people might not associate a trip to the dermatologist with the end of the summer, a post-summer full body skin exam is an important part of your overall skin care routine. Skin cancer affects two million Americans each year, and the chances of successful treatment are much higher when it’s detected early. In addition to practicing routine self exams, talk to your Centreville dermatologist about scheduling a full body exam. As few as five sunburns in your life can double your risk for melanoma, so don’t take any chances with your health. Take a look at this infographic from Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, serving Centreville, Loudoun, and Sterling, to learn more about why you should have an after-summer skin exam.
