Skin cancer is, by far, the most prevalent cancer that is diagnosed in the United States. Melanoma, which typically appears as an unusual mole, is the most dangerous, but thankfully also the least common. Other types of skin cancer, Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (both non-melanoma skin cancers), are the most common types of skin cancer. Over 5.4 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer are treated in more than 3.3 million people each year in the U.S. Even more, treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers increased by nearly 77-percent between 1992 and 2006 and over the past three decades more people have developed skin cancer than all other cancers combined. Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer reported than colon, lung, prostate and breast combined.

An effective skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it’s probably best to make any skin care routine simple.

Are you struggling with any of these eye-related issues?

Dark circles, wrinkles, crepey skin, droopy eyelids, puffiness, crow’s feet, tired appearance, short lashes, flat brows, thinning brows, under-eye “bags”

We’re talking about eyes! I probably get more questions about eyes than any other part of the face or body. They come from male and female patients alike, of every age and every skin color.
