Preparing for a Skin Exam

Your skin is the largest organ of the body acting as a barrier, insulator and a sensor to the outside world. Skin provides a waterproof shield and protects against extreme environmental exposure including temperature, sun and chemicals. It also provides a layer of protection by releasing antibacterial substances to help prevent infection.

Board Certified Dermatologists, Naomi Simon, MD, and Scott Paviol, MD, of Mooresville Dermatology Center are strong advocates of regular skin exams for diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases and conditions and early detection of skin cancer.
