DermTech is a melanoma and skin cancer detection test. The DermTech Melanoma Test is extremely accurate, with a 99% negative predictive value (that is, a 99% probability that a negative test means you really don’t have the disease).
Instead of a doctor using their eyes and a microscope to check the anatomy of a scalpel-removed mole, DermTech is a series of smart stickers to painlessly collect skin cells from a suspicious mole.
Results are sent to Dr. DeSpain from DermTech’s proprietary lab in about 3 business days. Once received, you and Dr. DeSpain will be able to this information to choose the best path forward for your treatment. If the genomic markers are there, this will typically result in removal of the mole. If not, you’ve likely saved yourself a scar.
Jeuveau is a prescription medication injected into muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines for a period of time. Simply put: it’s the next generation of botox. It prevents your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex.
This FDA-approved injectable treatment is the first product of its kind dedicated exclusively to aesthetics—that would be doctors like Dr. DeSpain. Patients tend to receive an average of 3 Jeuveau treatments a year.
skinbetter science is a group of skincare products backed by chemistry—something any good doctor can love. skinbetter science products don’t require tedious, multi-step processes; rather, they try to make the process as straightforward as possible!
