All screenings and measurements are conducted privately, and results released only to you. A faculty or employee NYU ID is required to participate. For best results, consult and follow the below guidelines:

Skin is the largest organ of the body. It's our first layer of defense against the elements. As we age, we develop lines, wrinkles, age spots, dull skin, hyperpigmentation, and other skin concerns. Sun exposure, stress, extreme weather, and improper nutrition can exacerbate the aging process. The Derma Scanner, a major advancement in skin analysis, uses an ultra violet light to test the integrity of your skin and highlight problem areas. It can show skin damage that is invisible to the naked eye. For best results, use minimal face makeup.

Most people don’t know they have a problem until stricken; don’t let yourself become a statistic. Half of all Americans have dangerously high levels of LDL—“Bad Cholesterol”—and too low protective HDL—“Good Cholesterol”. This screening will identify both HDL and LDL levels. Fasting or a light meal is preferred.

It’s never too early or too late to assess your bone health. Bone density screenings are quick, painless, and non-invasive. The Achilles Express device, used in the bone density screening, utilizes an ultrasonometer which is placed around the ankle. The results are available in minutes. Bone is living tissue that is always being absorbed and replaced. When the formation of new bone occurs at a slower rate than the removal of old bone, osteoporosis occurs. Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease. It causes bones to become weak and brittle, increasing the risk of unexpected fractures. To ensure the accuracy of the test results, please do not wear clothing that will obstruct access to the ankle (i.e. stockings or other fabrics.)
