How Often Should I See a Dermatologist?

It has been suggested by the American Skin Cancer Association that people over the age of 25 should see a dermatologist at least once a year. This is so that you can have a quick checkup to spot any new moles, evaluate sun damage, track any skin discolorations, and more.

If you’re going to a dermatologist near the Hammond area, and you work outside for a living, it might be a good idea to get your skin evaluated twice a year at a minimum instead.

Do I Need to be Referred to a Dermatologist?

If you’re looking for a dermatologist in Hammond, then you may have been referred to a few by your primary care physician. However, you certainly don’t need to see your family doctor before going to see a dermatologist. If you’ve been having issues relating to your skin, hair, or nails, then you can make an appointment with Dr. Robert Benson’s dermatology clinic in Hammond at any time.
