May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and to celebrate we will be giving out FREE Sun Smart Skin Safe bracelets on Monday May 7th. These are fun silicone bracelets that start out white in color, but change color to blue when exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun. This way, you can have a fun visual reminder to protect you and your family’s skin all the time. And the fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down. These bracelet glows in the dark too!!
We normally sell these in the office as a fundraiser, 4 for $10 – donating the full $10 to non profit organizations that either promote skin cancer research or education. On May 7th, the bracelet is yours for FREE – but voluntarry donations to the cause are of course welcome.

There are many treatments available for patients with psoriasis. One option that we offer our patients with psoriasis affecting a significant portion of their skin is phototherapy.
What Is Phototherapy?
Present in natural sunlight, UVB light is an effective treatment for psoriasis. The UV energy penetrates the skin and helps the psoriasis to clear.
In our Plainview office, we offer narrow band ultraviolet light treatments. Narrow band phototherapy releases a smaller range of ultraviolet light to the skin. This treatment may be safer, help to clear psoriasis faster and produces longer remissions than broad-band UVB. It also may be effective with fewer treatments per week than broad-band UVB.
