What is a Full Body Skin Exam?
Skin exams are an important routine skin check that we recommend each of our patients come in for annually. Dr. Siddiqui and the expert medical team at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic use annual full body skin exams to track the appearance of skin lesions like moles, birthmarks, and other growths on the surface of the skin. In tracking the appearance of these lesions year over year, Dr. Siddiqui can ensure that each lesion is healthy. If there are any changes in the size, shape, or color of your skin lesions, Dr. Siddiqui may recommend further intervention like a biopsy to ensure that your skin stays healthy and beautiful for the long term.

Your full body skin exam will be performed by Dr. Faryal Siddiqui and our team of medical professionals in our beautiful office.
