Take Care of Your Skin

At Center For Sight, we are committed to our patients’ overall well-being, not only how well they see. We believe it is beneficial to offer additional healthcare solutions to help you look and feel your healthiest. Our dermatology services are a part of our commitment to delivering advanced care to improve our patients’ lives.

We have plenty of sun in Florida, but extended sun exposure can increase your risk of cataracts and skin cancer. Dr. Newman and Shannon Bednarz, PA-C at AMARA MD can help you protect and take care of your skin long-term. 

Skin Cancer Is a Risk

More than 9,500 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. Skin cancer develops when cells grow uncontrollably in an aggressive manner. While it can be fun to spend time in the sun, proper caution is required to protect your skin. 

There are 3 primary forms of skin cancer: 

  • Basal cell carcinoma: This form of cancer can appear in many forms, including open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, scars, or growths. There are over 3.6 million cases of this cancer diagnosed every year. 
  • Squamous cell carcinoma: This form of cancer appears as scaly red patches, open sores, raised growths, or rough-like skin. Squamous cell carcinoma can spread to other areas of the body. 

Melanoma: This form of cancer can appear in many different shapes, sizes, or colors. Melanoma can spread to other parts of the body rapidly if not diagnosed early enough.

Caring for Your Skin

Ultraviolet (UV) rays are a form of invisible energy given off by the sun that can damage the skin. Most people only think of wearing sun protection at the pool or beach, but solar damage can accumulate every time you expose your skin to sunlight. 

Take precautions to avoid the sun’s harmful rays by limiting direct sun exposure during midday, sitting in the shade, and using an umbrella. When in the sun, wear a hat with a 2-inch brim and sunglasses that block 99% of UV rays. The most important preventive measure is applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15.

Additional Dermatology Treatments 

Center For Sight offers additional dermatology treatments to help address different skin problems. Our experienced doctors can determine if treatments are right for you and explain the benefits and risks of these procedures. 

Sclerotherapy is a procedure designed to eliminate varicose and spider veins. The process involves injecting a solution into the vein, where it causes the lining of the blood vessel to swell and stick together. After a short time, the injected blood vessel fades from view.

A fungus infection of the nail is one of the most common skin infections. Toenails are commonly affected due to the environment where fungus can grow. Our team can offer oral medications to remove these infections.
