DermaScan Screening is a test that uses a special light to show skin damage that is invisible to the naked eye. This damage is usually caused by excessive sun exposure. The machine is a little larger than a computer monitor. The participant places his head under a black cloak on one side of the machine to look at their face in a mirror illuminated by light. A registered nurse will be looking on the other end of the machine to indicate the condition of the skin and where sun damage has occurred. This screening is significant on educating one on how to prevent sun damage which can lead to skin cancer and premature aging.
