What Causes Facial Aging?
Our skin is not the only tissue in our bodies that age. Rather it is the combined effect of several structures within the body that causes facial aging. What we see on the outside, our skin, is affected by chronological changes and by photo-aging. But what about the deeper structures?
What Does Skin Cancer Look Like?
More than 1 million people will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year alone. If you live in Colorado you will have a higher risk of these types of cancers because of our altitude and blue skies. It is very important that you know what to look for when doing a self-exam and when it is time to seek the advice of a physician.
It is essential to perform a regular skin check and to enlist the help of a spouse or other partner to help you check out areas you can not see. The exam should be done in front of a full length mirror so that you can see areas outside of your normal range of vision.
