Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Over 1.3 million people are diagnosed with it every year. Fortunately, if detected early, doctors can nearly always treat it. While dermatologists perform yearly skin cancer screenings, they also encourage people to examine themselves and their loved ones once a month for signs of skin cancer.
What are the ABCDEs?
The ABCDEs are the signs of possible melanoma, which is the deadliest type of skin cancer. They are as follows:
• A = Asymmetry
• B= Border
• C= Color
• D= Diameter
• E = Evolving
Asymmetry means that the two halves of a mole look distinctly different from each other.
Border means the mole has an irregular, jagged, or indistinct border.
Color refers to the fact that a normal mole is all one color, usually brown or black, and it is the same shade throughout. A cancerous mole can be several different shades and may even be several different colors.
Diameter describes the mole’s size. A normal mole will have a diameter smaller than that of a pencil eraser or around 6 mm, while a melanoma can be significantly bigger.
Evolving means the mole’s size, color, or shape is changing. It can also mean that the mole looks different from the other moles on the patient’s body.
How Do You Examine Your Partner?
When examining another person for skin cancer, you should examine their front and back. Ask them to raise their arms while you examine their sides. Examine their underarms, arms, hands, and even the spaces between their fingers.
Examine their scalp and the back of their neck. Part their hair to give yourself a better look. Check their back and buttocks. Examine their feet and the backs of their legs. When examining your partner’s feet, check their toes and the spaces between the toes.
In addition to possible melanomas, look for spots that are bleeding or itching. Also, make note of anything new. It’s also a good idea to take pictures of your partner’s moles so that you can track any changes over time.
How Do You Examine Yourself?
You will need a full-length mirror and a hand mirror so that you can examine the places you can’t readily see. You will follow the same order as the two-person exam.
Orlando residents suffer from many of the same skin conditions common to other parts of the country. The main difference is that the many outdoor activities available in the area bring about more instances of sun damage and prematurely aging skin. Thankfully, you can always visit our Orlando dermatologist for first-class treatments.
One of the great things about our skin rejuvenation methods is the way they get you back into your daily activities almost immediately. In fact, many non-surgical treatments can be performed around your other daily activities.
Although there are many different skin rejuvenation techniques, they all have one thing in common: the removal of unwanted or damaged skin tissue. Basically, what we are doing is triggering your own body into replacing damaged skin with new skin that displays fewer imperfections like scars or signs of aging.
Microneedling has become an extremely popular non-surgical method for skin rejuvenation. It can safely and effectively treat common skin problems like wrinkles, stretch marks, blemishes, or scars caused by acne or trauma.
A microneedling session typically begins with the application of a numbing gel to ensure patient comfort. We then move the microneedling device over your skin. This device is coated in many tiny, sterile needles that penetrate the skin to a shallow depth. While invisible to the naked eye, these microscopic injuries promote the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers.
Microneedling can work on its own or be combined with other types of treatments. It is particularly effective when used in conjunction with topical skin care products. During your consultation, you can learn more about the details of the procedure and why our Orlando dermatologist commonly recommends it.
If you have noticed some skin wrinkling recently, a treatment with dermal fillers may be right for you. Although cosmetic surgery offers dramatic results, mild to moderate lines and wrinkles can usually be treated using a less drastic treatment option.
Hyaluronic acid is an important skin component that enhances skin moisture and thickness. Just as a water balloon has a smooth surface when full, your skin cells require hydration in order to keep wrinkles at bay. By injecting certain areas with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, we are replacing what you have lost due to the aging process or other factors.
Vaginoplasty is a popular surgical procedure that’s designed to address a variety of feminine issues such as vaginal laxity, diminished skin tone, and many other atrophic signs of vaginal aging. Although vaginoplasty has an impressive rate of success, it also involves actual cutting, tissue removal, and healing time. The risks and challenges associated with surgical treatments can be intimidating. Moreover, this often deters the very people who can benefit from these procedures the most from ever seeking care. Fractora, however, has made it possible for women to improve the appearance, functionality, and feel of their vagina without ever going under the proverbial knife. Following are several ways in which this revolutionary option in radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation can restore your feminine wellness.
Fractora has long been used to reduce facial wrinkles and to minimize the appearance of lost volume across the face and body. When this same technology is used to address cosmetic or functional issues pertaining to the vagina, the Fractora V device is applied. Streamlined for comfortable vaginal rejuvenation, this unit creates minute amounts of controlled damage in the vaginal walls. It’s comprised of a strategic network of tiny rejuvenation pins. Radiofrequency currents flow through these pins to produce small, thermal injuries. The new tissues that form throughout the healing process are rich in skin-supporting substances like elastin and collagen. As a result, women who receive these treatments can look forward to tighter and significantly more toned vaginal muscles.
With increased vaginal tone, women who suffer from various forms of urinary incontinence often experience significant increases in their overall bladder control. For many patients, this is a benefit that can lead to both increased confidence and higher life qualities overall.
Embarrassing changes in the look, structure, and tone of the vagina can occur as the result of significant weight loss, pregnancy, and the normal aging process. With the use of Fractora V and other beneficial modalities at Orlando Dermatology, women can enjoy more comfortable and gratifying sexual experiences all-around. This procedure can additionally resolve many age-related and post-pregnancy problems with urinary incontinence. Scheduling a consultation appointment at our office in Orlando, however, is always the best way to determine if this radiofrequency rejuvenation procedure is right for you.

Orlando is home to those who enjoy basking in the Florida sun. It is a time-honored tradition to be tan and fit in one of the state’s most happening cities. For this reason, you are looking to join in with those who believe that looking good means feeling good. You have spruced up your wardrobe, gotten a brand spanking new swimsuit and plan to have hours of enjoyment soaking up the sun at some point this season. However, one thing holding you back is that you have an issue with unwanted body hair. Thankfully, laser hair removal exists, and it could work for you.
Hair growth is a big issue, and it is one that has plagued you for a long time. Since you hit puberty, your body thought it would be a good idea to give you upper lip hair, chin hair and that thick, tangled mess that covers your legs from thigh to ankle. If you did not know better, you would think that nature was playing some kind of joke on you. Fortunately, your situation is not as unique as you might imagine. Many women and men are plagued with unwanted body hair, and they spend countless hours shaving, waxing and tweezing to hide that they live with this perpetual problem. But you do not have to live with this problem anymore. You can enjoy the body hair reduction benefits of laser hair removal and join the ranks of those who have gotten rid of their unwanted body hair in a dramatic way.
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular laser-based cosmetic procedures performed today. Removing hair from your upper lip, your chin and that all-important bikini line can really be a breeze with laser hair removal treatments at our office. This is especially the case if you have the treatment performed at a dermatologist clinic. Dermatologists and their staff are trained with the use of lasers in a lot of cosmetic procedures, so they typically have the skill to do a procedure like laser hair removal in a safe, effective way.
Since laser hair removal works for virtually anyone these days, there is no excuse to avoid having this procedure done. Learn more by scheduling a consultation with us at Orlando Dermatology in Orlando. Contact us today to schedule your appointment!
PRP therapy is a revolutionary new treatment that is taking the hair regrowth industry by storm. Instead of injecting foreign chemicals into your skin to stimulate your hair follicles, we can use the powerful compounds that are already in your blood. This treatment is the perfect option for patients who are tired of dealing with ineffective creams, shampoos, and conditioners. Here is a closer look at how PRP is made and what you can expect following your hair regrowth treatments.
A Look at Your Blood
Your blood is comprised of two primary components: red blood cells and plasma. A few decades ago, sports doctors and recovery specialists discovered that the plasma inside your blood is vital to your body’s natural healing response. They began injecting concentrated doses of platelet-rich plasma into damaged joints and scar tissue that wasn’t responding to traditional medications. After dozens of clinical trials, they learned that PRP can be used to treat damaged hair follicles as well. When PRP is used on the scalp, the body floods the area with revitalizing substances that stimulate the production of new hair follicles.
Making Platelet-Rich Plasma
The process of creating PRP from your blood takes just minutes, and you won’t have to worry about any unusual pre-op instructions. Once you arrive at our office, a small sample of your blood is taken and then placed in a centrifuge. That device is nothing more than a simple machine that spins vials at very high speeds in order to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. The platelet-rich plasma collects at one end of the vial, and we can then use that concentrated serum anywhere that it is needed.
The Ideal Candidate for PRP Treatment
A few studies are now showing us that PRP might be useful for many different health conditions that cause hair loss. It can be used to address alopecia areata, genetic hair loss, thinning hair, and even balding. Good candidates for this treatment are healthy overall and have realistic expectations.
You can learn more about your candidacy for PRP treatment during a consultation at Orlando Dermatology, located in Orlando, FL. Contact us today to book your appointment.
Having unwanted fat on your body can make you feel unattractive, frumpy, and self-conscious. It can be even more discouraging when you actually work really hard to have a nice-looking body, but you are still dealing with pockets of fat. If you are ready to get the body that you have always dreamed of, we invite you to learn about InMode Contoura for safe and effective body contouring.
InMode Contoura uses radiofrequency to help you reshape your body. Not only can it reduce fat in specific areas, but it can reduce cellulite and help your skin to contract. If you are interested in the many benefits that come from this radiofrequency treatment, we invite you to contact us to learn more about it.
You may like the idea of using liposuction to get rid of fat because it is done in the moment. Right as the procedure is taking place, the fat is being removed. So you will leave the office with less fat and a more attractive shape. However, the downside is that you also leave with bandages and potential scarring. These are just a few of the risks that people deal with when using surgery to get rid of fat. When using InMode Contoura, you don’t have to worry about any of these downsides. It is a completely non-invasive treatment. No incisions are made, yet you get noticeable results.
If you have thought about using other non-surgical fat reduction treatments, you may have come across some that use intense cold in order to kill fat cells. While this treatment definitely has the benefit of reducing fat in specific areas, it does not do anything for skin tightening. And so a person could have less fat in a specific area, but they may be left with saggy skin. When you use InMode Contoura, these are not things that you have to worry about. You can get rid of unwanted fat, reduce cellulite, and enjoy the benefits that come from skin tightening.
It can be very disappointing to work hard to get a body that you will feel satisfied with and never be able to reach those goals on your own. However, you should know that you are not alone. There are a lot of people out there like you who live a healthy lifestyle, yet they still have unwanted fat on their body. Thankfully, InMode Contoura is a non-invasive, safe, and effective method to get rid of body fat, and it’s available right here at Orlando Dermatology.

If you would like to improve the overall appearance of your facial skin, it is very likely that you have looked at the options that are available for facials in your area. Having a facial performed on a regular basis can improve the health of your skin and help you to deal with specific skin issues that you may be experiencing. If you are interested in improving your skin, we invite you to learn about the HydraFacial® treatment. How do you know if it is right for you?
The first thing that you should understand is that HydraFacial® provides amazing skin rejuvenation benefits in a non-invasive and gentle way.

How do you know if HydraFacial® is right for you? This is a pretty easy question to answer. It is easy to answer because almost every single person out there who is concerned about the health of their skin qualifies for the treatment. This is because the treatment is very gentle and easily customizable. Even individuals who have sensitive skin are able to benefit from HydraFacial®. It does not matter if you have dark skin or light skin. It does not matter if you have oily skin or dry skin.
The way this treatment is performed is going to be tailored to fit your specific wants and needs. For example, serums are going to be infused into your skin as the treatment comes to an end. The type of serums that will be infused will depend on your specific skin care goals. For example, if you are dealing with acne, special serums that help to treat acne can be used. Or if you are dealing with aging skin, serums that will help you to fight the aging process can be used. Tell us your skin care concerns and then we will show you how HydraFacial® can help you.
