Staying current on checkups with medical professionals can be overwhelming at times. However, taking charge of your wellness and being proactive are key components to staying healthy. This is especially true when considering your skin. At North Branch Dermatology in Chicago, IL, Dr. Elizabeth Fahrenbach and the rest of the dermatology staff encourage all our patients to visit us yearly. We'll tell you the reasons why here.
Proper treatment and products
While washing your face daily is certainly a good habit to get into, your dermatologist can help you determine which products are best for your skin type. Choosing a face wash, moisturizer or toner off the shelf is basically just a guessing game unless you've met with Dr. Fahrenbach to determine your skin type and the best products to treat it.
This is especially true if you have an ongoing skin issue, such as acne or psoriasis. These conditions respond best to a specific skin care regimen that your Chicago dermatologist can design for you.
Each year, it's important to visit your Chicago dermatologist to have a full-body skin check. Moles and other skin growths need to be monitored by a professional to ensure that any changes are noted, diagnosed and treated. Patients who make yearly visits to their dermatologist a priority are much more likely to catch skin cancer in its earliest stages, as opposed to those who wait until they've developed accompanying symptoms such as itching, bleeding or noticeable changes.
Are you embarrassed by the amount of which your underarms or feet sweat? Do you have unsightly, brittle fingernails or toenails? Do you find that shaving isn't enough to control your body hair growth? These are all issues that Dr. Fahrenbach can treat. At North Branch Dermatologist, the conditions we treat aren't just skin deep!
