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 Dermatologist, Naomi Simon, MD, of Mooresville Dermatology Center is a strong advocate of regular skin exams for diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases and conditions and early detection of skin cancer.
