“Dr. Selkin is a wonderful dermatologist. I came into his office [because] of a home treatment that burned my face, I thought I was going to be scarred for life. Dr. Selkin immediately knew how to treat my condition which ended up healing within a week. He is so professional and caring about his patients. He even asked to see me the following week just to see how I was healing-for no charge. I would recommend Dr.Selkin to anyone who is looking for a great dermatologist. I cannot praise him enough for being such a wonderful doctor.”
“[Dr. Selkin] really knows his stuff! After several rounds of misdiagnosis, I was referred to him. What others couldn't fix in months, he fixed in DAYS! I went from being in a lot of pain to pain-free within 48 hours and continued to improve under his care.”
“Was sent here for further treatment of eczema for my daughter. We had been to other [dermatologists] in the area but they didn't add much to the treatment. Dr. Selkin clearly knows his stuff and the pediatrician said this is who he would use for his own kids. Everything was clearly explained, handouts were given to me, meds were sent in so I didn't have to wait at pharmacy, my daughter has improved significantly and I am very thankful to him. He is also very cautious and conservative about medications which means a lot to me as a mom.”

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world, with more than two million cases of diagnosed each year in the United States alone resulting from heredity factors, or sun overexposure – either outdoors or in a tanning bed. Research shows that indoor tanning (e.g., tanning beds, sun lamps) increases a person’s risk of getting melanoma significantly.
To pick up on benign spots that can be turning cancerous, it is important to know the appearance of the moles on your own body to detect changes early. Performing a skin self exam every month, and seeing a dermatologist annually are your best bets for prevention of melanoma. Any changing mole should be examined by a dermatologist, as early-stage melanoma is curable.
Skin cancer can occur anywhere, even in places that aren’t exposed to the sun. Melanoma can occur between the toes, on the scalp, inside the mouth, under the tongue, in the retina of the eyes, and in the fingernail beds. Typically, moles smaller than 6mm, or the size of a pencil eraser, and with even coloration and symmetry, are benign; however, if the mole is new, or if it has changed in appearance (the outer edge appears ragged, for instance), it’s imperative to have it checked by a dermatologist.
The American Academy of Dermatologists offers helpful tips for performing an effective self exam. The tools you’ll need include a full-length mirror and a handheld mirror, a well-lit room that offers privacy, a pen or pencil and a body mole map, which allows you to document the size and location of moles on your body.
To begin a skin self-exam, examine your body front and back in the mirror, then right and left sides with arms raised. Women should look under their breasts. Bend elbows and look carefully at forearms, upper underarms, and palms. Look at the backs of your legs and feet, the spaces between your toes, and on the soles. If you cannot see all parts of your feet, use a handheld mirror. Examine the backs of your neck and scalp with a hand mirror. Part your hair to examine the entire scalp. Finally, check your back and buttocks with a hand mirror.
When performing your self exam, remember the ABCDs:
ABCDs of Skin Cancer
As with any type of cancer, early detection is best. By giving yourself a monthly self exam, you will become familiar with the appearance of your skin, so you will know if any changes occur. As you perform your self-exam, check moles for the ABCDs:
Consult a dermatologist if you notice a mole different from others – even if it is small – or one that changes, itches, or bleeds. When detected early, skin cancer can be cured. Ensure your good health this year, by committing to a monthly skin self exam, and an annual skin exam with your dermatologist.

The Harmony® Laser 360 program is a treatment plan that improves skin tone, texture, tightness and overall color. Simultaneously repairing collagen while gently erasing signs of aging, scarring and sun damage, the procedure is fast and virtually painless; patients can typically resume their normal activities the very same day. While each treatment works well alone, the best results are seen with an individualized 60-day program. During these 60 days, each patient receives the appropriate type and number of treatments to improve skin color, skin texture and tone, and skin tightness.
Skin Color – Vascular or pigmented skin, and conditions like Rosacea are effectively treated using the AFT pulsed light modules. Typically this includes a series of 3-5 treatments.
Skin Texture and Tone – Possibly the most unique module in the Harmony® Platform, the Pixel™ 2940 was designed specifically for skin texture. The Pixel™ is a Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment. There is minimal pain and down time, and is generally performed in a series of 2-4 treatments.
Skin Tightening – The ST near infrared module is a painless treatment that improves skin tightness reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Ideally suited as a combination with the AFT and the Pixel™, it can also be offered as a stand alone option in a series of 3-6 treatments.
At the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, we specialize in facial rejuvenation and other cosmetic procedures using the newest and safest technologies for patients throughout the metroplex. We invite you to set up a free consultation to find out how Laser360 and other innovative treatments can help you look your best. During your personal consultation with us, we'll examine you, listen to your concerns and show you how Laser360 treatment can make a difference for you. We'll explain how skin rejuvenation with Laser360 therapy is a gradual process that happens over several treatments combining three leading technologies.
