Dermatology is an exciting field that is continuously evolving. Listed below are some of the Services offered at Dim-Jamora Dermatology Clinic:
Skin Cancer Screening: the whole body is examined from head to toe for suspicious lesions. A dermatoscope (medical device to see the features of an abnormal lesion) may be used prior to a recommendation for observation or biopsy. Results are kept electronically for ease of referral and record management. Currently, Dr. Dim-Jamora is one of a handful of dermatologists trained in the screening for skin cancer in Caucasian and Asian Skin.

Skin Cancer Surgery (Mohs Micrographic Surgery): a specialized technique in removing skin cancer that results in the highest cure rate. Your dermatologist is both the surgeon and the pathologist. This technique involves the layer by layer removal of skin cancer. Repair is done right after complete removal of the skin cancer. 95% of the time, the procedure is done under local anesthesia. This means you may go home after the procedure.
Skin Checks for Abnormal Moles: Comprehensive skin examination includes checking the skin from head to toe: the nails, scalp, hair and mucous membranes too. Extra attention is given to growths and areas of pigmentation such as moles that may lead to potential issues. Areas with itchiness, pain, discomfort, heat or reduced sensation is usually correlated with the medical history of the patient. Dermoscopy is a tool used in the comprehensive skin examination of patients. Whether you have brown or light skin, everyone can benefit by having your moles checked once a year.
You may also have an optional scanning called The Visia Facial Skin Analysis. This is a report that captures key visual information for eight areas affecting facial skin health and appearance. These eight areas are wrinkles, spots, texture, pores, brown spots (related to sun exposure), porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores), red areas and UV spots (skin damage due to overexposure to the sun). By comparing these information against a standard database, the Visia Skin Analysis, which is provided to patients, enables the Dermatologist to present the optimal treatments and skin care options which are tailored for them.
