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.

Treating eyelid cancer often requires coordinated care between a Mohs surgeon and an ophtlamic plastic and reconstructive specialist. Working side by side, Drs. Jeffrey Ellis & Rachel Ellis specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and reconstruction of eyelid skin cancers.
The eyelid region is one of the most common sites for nonmelanoma skin cancers. In fact, skin cancers of the eyelid, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) account for five to ten percent of all skin cancers.

State Sen. Charles J. Fuschillo,, R-Merrick, and the Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign (CCMAC) partnered to sponsor a free skin cancer screening program at Wantagh Park this past Thursday to help protect residents from skin cancer
CCMAC worked with Dr. Jeffrey Ellis & Dr. Amy Slear of Belaray Dermatology, Dr. Steve McClain of McClain Labs, and doctors from Stony Brook Hospital Dermatology Service to provide free screenings at Wantagh Park.
A total of 164 visitors were screened, with 1/3rd requiring referral to a dermatologist for a suspected skin cancer. One in five people will be diagnosed with some
type of skin cancer in their lifetime. Malignant melanoma, a form of skin cancer, is the fastest growing cancer in America, claiming one life every hour. People of all ethnic backgrounds and races can get skin cancer. One blistering sunburn during childhood or adolescence more than doubles melanoma risk later in life.
Identifying and treating a melanoma early can be a life saving event. You can find more information about how to do a self-skin exam and what to look for here.
