An exam can be brief if you’ve never had moles or skin problems. Anticipate a 10 – 15 minute exam, though times vary depending on findings or previous problems that need to be re-examined.
Make It A Habit
Every year men and women discover unexpected skin problems or concerns. These may seem “out of the blue,” but the skin can often show signs and warnings well beforehand. While self-examination is important, we recommend an annual professional skin exam as part of a complete health strategy.
At Elevated Dermatology, a board-certified dermatologist can quickly assess you for any concerns that may be arising on the skin. Early detection is critical in treatment, so protect yourself with a skin exam in Parker, CO.
How It Works
A skin exam is similar to an annual physical, where a physician assesses your body for signs of concern or trouble. You can expect to change into a medical exam gown at your appointment for easier inspection. It is unlikely you will need to remove underwear unless you note a concern in any of those areas.
Your provider will check your skin, performing a thorough examination from head to toe. This includes hard-to-see areas like the back, scalp, toes, and buttocks. They may utilize a small microscope to get a deeper look at specific areas or perform a biopsy on suspicious moles or growths.

During your appointment, one of our board-certified providers will closely examine your skin, checking hard-to-see areas and reviewing any spots of concern.
If there is cause for concern or suspicion anywhere on the skin, your provider may perform a biopsy to rule out any disease or harmful conditions. After the exam, we'll discuss any of the findings.
