Florida Skin Center to provide free skin exams Saturday in Cape Coral

Special to The Breeze ( , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Florida Skin Center is kicking off 2018 with complimentary skin exams that are part of the adult/pediatric dermatological facility's "free skin check campaign" for patients with or without insurance.

The "Get Your Skin in the Game and Check It!" event will take place Saturday, Jan. 13, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Cape Coral office, 4037 Del Prado Blvd.

Anyone wishing to obtain a free skin exam will be seen by a Florida Skin Center doctor or physician assistant (PA) on a first-come, first-served basis. Staff members will address skin concerns and conduct a head-to-toe examination, utilizing the same tools they use every day. Following the screening, guests will be introduced to the best skin regimen based on their individual needs, as well as be invited to stay for food, refreshments and entertainment.

"One in every five Americans is diagnosed with skin cancer each year, but routine checkups by a board-certified dermatologist or PA can prevent such a diagnosis," said Anais Aurora Badia, M.D., D.O., founder. "In 2018, Florida Skin Center will prove that statement valid. To prompt an early start to this mission, we ask that you leave the burden of insurance and copays at the door, and simply let us help you."

For more information about this New Year event, call (239) 561-3376 or visit Florida Skin Center's Facebook page, @FloridaSkinCenter.

In addition to the Jan. 13 event, the 'free skin check campaign' is available at the Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres and upcoming Punta Gorda locations. These free checks save Southwest Floridians without insurance up to $91. Those with insurance save $15 to $65 in copays.

Florida Skin Center's goal is to ultimately perform over 100 free skin checks per month.
