Wow!!! I randomly looked up a dermatologist in my area for a small procedure I needed done and I will say I could not be happier with this team!!!! EVERYONE in the office is just so friendly and welcoming. The Doctor was super super nice and explained everything in detail that was easily understandable and even had suggestions on how to keep costs down.The nurse I had was WONDERFUL!!! Just an all around perfect experience and I highly highly suggest this office to anyone in the West Plano area. Great example of good culture in an office. Loved my visit!

RESEARCH CONFIRMS THAT SUNSCREEN CAN PREVENT MELANOMA

(J Clin Oncol. Posted online December 6, 2010) It may seem like captain obvious – but I hope this motivates patients to use proper sunscreen and reduce the melanoma cancer rate by a whopping 50%.

 

Researchers at the University of Queensland have reported the results of a study, which confirms that individuals who are diligent about regular sunscreen use are much less likely to develop melanoma. Researchers studied 1,600 Australian adults, beginning in 1992. The participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups. One group received standard advice to use sunscreen, and the other group was given sunscreen along with detailed instructions and supervision for 4 years. A decade after the trial ended, only 11 of the supervised patients developed melanoma, as opposed to 22 who only received standard advice about sunscreen and protective clothing.

 

The researchers reported that, in addition to the 50 percent reduction of melanoma, the risk of invasive melanoma was reduced by 73 percent.
