A few of the top personalities and civic leaders of DFW led by example and ‘showed some skin’ for a screening at a DermOne location, including Grand Prairie’s City Councilman Tony Shotwell and Assistant Fire Chief Bill Murphy, Mrs. Texas International Michelle Berndt, media personalities Amy Vanderoef and Roni Proter, popular bloggers Autumn Rose Reo (Mamma Challenge) and Betsy Mitchell (The Dallas Socials), and Arlington’s charity extraordinaire Jeannie Panton Deakyne. As part of a healthy skin initiative, these community leaders were checked for anything that could indicate skin cancer -- an annual exam that is recommended for everyone to help maintain the health of their body's largest organ, their skin.
Skin cancer is a serious issue in North Texas. In fact:
· It’s the most common form of cancer in the U.S., with more than 3.5 million skin cancers diagnosed in more than two million people annually.
· There are more new cases of skin cancer than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer – combined.
· One in five members of the Dallas/Fort Worth community will develop skin cancer in the course of their lifetime. That’s 20 percent!
When left unchecked, skin cancer can be deadly faster than any of us would like to think. The great news is that it’s easy to get screened. DermOne in Arlington is staffed by a physician dermatologist and a team of experienced clinical specialists who are dedicated to providing excellent patient care.
“For us, it’s about examining, treating and advocating for healthy skin through prevention programs,” said Dr. Carolyn Kim, a board-certified dermatologist with DermOne, who offices in Irving. “What’s most important to us is treating our patients as we would want to be treated ourselves, or as we would want our families treated. That is important to us, and it’s important to the practice of providing good care.”
Specialties of DermOne include:
General dermatology, including treatment of acne, eczema, warts, rashes, moles and much more;
Skin cancer screenings and surgery;
Laser technology, such as the Palomar Laser, an innovative fractional laser from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology, used to treat wrinkles, stretch marks, acne, surgical scars and other skin conditions;
Cosmetic procedures, including BOTOX®, Juvéderm™ and Restylane® at many locations; and
In-house pathology lab to ensure quick turn-around of biopsy removal of a sample of living tissue or cells for close examination by a pathologist for signs of disease and other test results.
