Dr. Roger J. Oldham is both a cosmetic and reconstructive board certified plastic surgeon. His work includes cosmetic procedures like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty, and facelift but also reconstructive treatment procedures like MOHS closure, skin cancer removal, and skin lesion and mole removal, performed in-office. But, mole removal is just one preventative action for skin cancer.
Being proactive means more than just vigilantly watching for changes in moles; it can also mean treating your skin with care, year-round. Dr. Oldham recommends two approaches: SPF moisturizer, and sunless tanning lotion. Today’s skincare industry has grown to provide more than just state-of-the-art products to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging, it has also integrated recommendations from the American Cancer Society to produce lotions and moisturizers for the face and body that include SPF. The use of a daily moisturizer with SPF protects your skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, even in the winter when they’re effects aren’t always on our minds. Other products like sunless tanning lotions give use the best of both worlds: a sun-kissed glow without the harmful effects of tanning or sunbathing. Try these in addition to in-office mole removal to ensure your skincare health.
If you do, however, see signs of moles changing, call Dr. Oldham to schedule your mole removal. You can experience the benefits of medical care with the added advantage of minimized scarring, as seen in these patients before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham.
