Defend, Catch & Take Action! How to be a Skin Cancer Hero

Published by Marketing Team

May is skin cancer awareness month. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, there are over 5 million diagnosed cases of skin cancer in the United States each year. This makes skin cancer one of the most commonly diagnosed forms of cancer, fortunately it is also one of the most preventable and treatable. About 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers and 85% of melanoma cases are associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. By raising awareness of the dangers of unprotected exposure and encouraging sun-safe habits, we can change behaviors and save lives. Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, in association with the AAD’s SPOTMe campaign, will be running free full body mole checks on Monday, May 7th, Thursday, May 17th and Monday May 21st. In addition to running these free mole check clinics, our staff will be participating in Miles for Melanoma on Saturday, June 2nd at Diversey Harbor. This 5k event for walkers and runners aims to raise awareness and money for research in the fight against melanoma. To join the CCSD team or donate to this worthy cause please click HERE. All are welcome!

On Monday, May 7th at 9:20am, Dr. Carolyn Jacob appeared on FOX News  bringing awareness to the ABCDE’s of skin cancer – Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter and Evolution. If you have a changing mole or skin lesion call CCSD today at 312-245-9965 to set up your annual full body mole check visit!

Booking Now For Medical Weight Loss!

If losing weight is part of your New Year goals, CCSD is now offering a medical weight loss program! Semaglutide is FDA-approved to help with chronic weight management and stimulate weight loss. We offer semaglutide with Vitamin B-12 to help reduce appetite, slow gastric emptying, and promote better eating habits. The addition of Vitamin B-12 helps ease side effects such as nausea and fatigue. Studies show that patients see a significant weight loss when using semaglutide with B-12.  The CCSD Medical Weight Loss Program includes:   3 months of weekly visits and semaglutide treatments with our Physician Assistants.  With weight loss alone, one loses muscle mass loss which can decrease metabolism. To combat this, we offer a package of 4 EMSCULPT NEO treatments which further help with weight loss and maintain core strength.  Weight Loss Program patients can also receive discounts on skin toning and smoothing treatments such as EMTONE and EXION, to help keep you looking your best throughout your journey!  Weight loss progress will be recorded and monitored by an intuitive 3D body composition device, which accurately measures body fat, muscle volume, lean mass, bone mass and so much more!  We’re excited to offer this new program to our patients! Call us at 312-245-9965 ext. 5004 for more information and to start your weight loss journey today!
