Derma Scan Facial Skin Cancer Screening

Tuesday, April 8, 2014, 10:00 to 1:30 pm
Kimmel Center, Room 914

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. To register for LVS 244 (required), visit NYUiLearn.
