What is a skin check and how should I prepare for mine?

A skin check is a close evaluation of your skin from head to toe, primarily looking for skin cancer. You may use your usual moisturizers on day of exam.  Light makeup is ok.  During your appointment, you will be given a gown and asked to remove your clothing to complete your exam.
