Most people will visit their dentist twice a year for a teeth cleaning. Visits to your dermatologist should be a normal part of your routine health and wellness similar to this bi-annual teeth cleaning. Most people living in sunny climates start to see changes in their skin health with the appearance of brown patches and raised rough areas.

Although these areas are most likely not significant, they do indicate changes and potential problems from long term sun exposure that need to be addressed. Once a year is the bare minimum and twice a year is the ideal. If you have had a diagnosis of melanoma, I might recommend more frequent visits. It is not uncommon for patients with multiple skin cancers or certain risk factors to have 3 or more dermatology appointments annually.
