Ashburn area dermatologist explains the importance of skin cancer screenings

skin cancer screenings from skin cancer dermatology experts in Ashburn area

Skin cancer is becoming a serious epidemic in skin care. Many older generations have spent many years tanning in the sun with baby oil or spending long summer days out at the pool, putting their skin at risk for the development of skin cancer. Even today’s generation is obsessed with tanning the skin for color and depth, not realizing that the tanning beds are making them highly susceptible to developing skin cancer at a very young age. This epidemic needs to be controlled, and that is done by providing preventative education and ensuring patients in and around the Ashburn community are seeking regular skin cancer screenings by a dermatologic professional.
Skin cancer screenings are done at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. to check patients from head to toe for any signs of skin cancer. Skin cancer comes in many forms. Dr. Neeraja Mattay can educate patients on how to spot signs that may indicate skin cancer so patients can book an appointment between screenings if they notice anything of concern.
Dr. Neeraja Mattay and the team at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. are committed to educating patients on how to avoid a higher risk of skin cancer. This includes reducing the amount of UV rays that penetrate the skin. This can be done by staying out of the sun during peak times of the day, wearing appropriate clothing that can protect the skin, by applying sunscreen to the skin regularly throughout the day if outside, and avoiding the use of tanning beds.
If you live in the Ashburn area and are interested in visiting a quality dermatologist who understands the importance of skin cancer screenings and preventative skin care, contact Dr. Neeraja Mattay at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. today to book an appointment. We welcome new patients in both of our offices in Centreville and Sterling, Virginia and encourage men and women to start being proactive about the health and wellness of their body and skin.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
