May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and worldwide. This is your friendly reminder from your esthetician to get your yearly skin cancer check.

  • The most important thing to do is to protect your skin from the sun and to examine your skin from head-to-toe every month. 
  • If you notice anything new, changing or unusual on your skin, contact a dermatologist right away.
  • More than 2 people die of skin cancer in the U.S. every hour
  • Having 5 or more sunburns doubles your risk of melenoma
  • When detected early the 5-year survival rate for melanoma is 99%

Early Detection Starts With You!

One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age or 70. Skin cancer affects people of all colors. This includes people of African, Asian, Latino, Mediterranean, middle Eastern and Native American descent. For people of color, it is often diagnosed too late, making it harder to treat.

When caught and treated early, skin cancers are highly curable!
