Confidence Beyond the Skin-Men’s Health

Squamous cellMelanomaC

Did you know that we are wrapping up National Men’s Health week? This week is a time when preventable disease and good health measures are brought to the attention of men around the country. 

Did you know that Melanoma can be a deadly cancer but it can be 100% curable if caught early? Melanoma is diagnosed in stages and if it is caught in the early stages, it can be cured by a simple out patient surgery. Encourage the men in your life to look for dark or irregular moles and get examined by a dermatologist at least once a year.
 
Did you know that sun induced skin cancers like Basal Cell carcinoma and Squamous Cell carcinoma can destroy your skin and cause disfigurement? Did you know that there are easy ways to treat these skin cancers when diagnosed early? Some of them can even be treated with a prescription topical cream in just a few weeks! Look for red and crusty lesions and point them out to your dermatologist as soon as you see them!
 
Did you know that more men than ever are trying to stay looking as young as they feel? Men are one of the fastest growing groups to inquire about cosmetic procedures! The most popular cosmetic procedures for men are Botox, for forehead wrinkles, and Photofacial laser, for broken facial capillaries and brown spots. Both of these procedures only take 15-20 minutes, have minimal discomfort and can help turn back the clock for the fellas.
 
Some men avoid the doctor at all costs so it is important to help out the men in your life and educate them about the dangers of skin cancer. Encourage sunscreen use of 30 SPF or higher and help remind the men in your life to look at their skin regularly for brown or red spots especially if they are new or changing. Let’s keep our dad’s and husbands healthy and looking good!

Check out the beauty corner of the main newsletter/blog page where I will highlight a different beauty product every month! www.kaseydrapeaudamatopac.wordpress.com

I am always looking for new blog topics or interesting products. Send your ideas to kasey.drapeaudamato@gmail.com.

I have been asked if I receive any financial incentive to mention products in my newsletter/blog and the answer is no. I only comment on products that I have used myself or that I recommend to patients because they have unique benefits. However, I am a clinical trainer for both Medicis (Dysport/Restylane) and Allergan (Botox/Juvederm).
