skin cancer screenings from skin cancer dermatology experts in Ashburn areaAt Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners,  we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Centreville area with their skin care concerns. Skin cancer is becoming a serious epidemic in skin care. Many older generations have spent many years tanning in the sun with baby oil or spending long summer days out at the pool, putting their skin at risk for the development of skin cancer.

Skin cancer screenings are done at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia to check patients from head to toe for any signs of skin cancer. Skin cancer comes in many forms. Dr. Neeraja Mattay can educate patients on how to spot signs that may indicate skin cancer so patients can book an appointment between screenings if they notice anything of concern.

Dr. Neeraja Mattay is committed to educating patients on how to avoid a higher risk of skin cancer. This includes reducing the amount of UV rays that penetrate the skin. This can be done by staying out of the sun during peak times of the day, wearing appropriate clothing that can protect the skin, by applying sunscreen to the skin regularly throughout the day if outside, and avoiding the use of tanning beds.
