Your dermatologist in Coldwater for expertise in medical dermatology

When you visit Forefront Dermatology for a skin concern, you’ll have a caring provider by your side. Our dermatologist in Coldwater has a breadth of knowledge and experience in treating a variety of conditions affecting the skin, hair, and nails. Some of our specialties include acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, warts, hair loss, and skin cancer. We’re dedicated to treating each patient’s unique skin condition and providing the guidance necessary to help you make an informed decision about your treatment plan.

More people receive a skin cancer diagnosis each year than any other type of cancer. In fact, the Skin Cancer Foundation estimates that one in five people will develop skin cancer by the time they’re 70 years old. To aid in the early detection of skin cancer, we encourage all of our patients to schedule an annual skin check with an experienced provider at Forefront Dermatology. During this exam, your skin care specialist will carefully examine your skin for any abnormal spots that may require further testing.

This yearly, full-body skin cancer exam is a preventative exam that you should schedule as part of your regular wellness checks. However, you should schedule an appointment with a Coldwater dermatologist right away if you notice any changes in the appearance of your skin, such as any changes in the color or size of a mole, uncontrollable itching, or redness.

Protect yourself against skin cancer

Early detection is your best defense against skin cancer. Our experienced providers will closely examine your skin for any signs of precancerous or cancerous spots to detect both melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. Should you receive a skin cancer diagnosis, you’ll receive a custom treatment plan based on the type and stage of your skin cancer.

Your dermatologist in Coldwater will discuss the treatments available and help you decide which option is right for you. We offer a variety of treatment options that are effective in treating skin cancer, including excision, scraping and burning, cryotherapy, and photodynamic therapy. Dr. Asarch is also a Fellowship-trained Mohs Surgeon. Mohs surgery is the most precise method of treating basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, which are the two most common types of non-melanoma skin cancer.
