Early detection of melanoma is key to preventing and treating this skin cancer. When removed promptly and early on, skin cancer is more likely to be cured. Goldenberg Dermatology NYC proudly features Nevisense, an advanced method utilized for detection of melanoma and abnormal moles (dysplastic nevi) in the earliest stages. The FDA-approved treatment method employs Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) to discover malignant lesions at a cellular level. At their New York office, Dr. Gary Goldenberg and Dr. Kristina Goldenberg are pleased to offer this non-invasive procedure to safely and accurately study atypical lesions in their patients.
Many dermatologists offer surface examinations for advanced melanomas and non-malignant lesions, but Goldenberg Dermatology is the first in the United States and NY to feature Nevisense. By combining visual examination and dermoscopy, our physicians can also use this advanced technology to thoroughly examine abnormal cells with this procedure. Nevisense is designed to detect atypical lesions and early-stage melanomas, improving diagnostic accuracy and potentially preventing unnecessary biopsies. This precise procedure is comfortable, non-invasive, and highly accurate. Discovering abnormal nevi early can potentially save lives and prevent progression of these lesions to melanoma.
Nevisense is a support tool that transmits harmless electrical signals to the skin and collects vital information regarding melanoma and abnormal moles. The painless and non-invasive test is implemented to examine cutaneous lesions larger than 2mm. With the help of Nevisense, the doctors can both measure and examine any lesions at their deepest levels to gather vital information for treatment purposes.
Before Nevisense, your doctor will moisten and sterilize the target area for 30 seconds with saline solution. During treatment, a moisture layer is created and removed, then the lesion is measured with the Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy device by simply holding the device on your skin for about a minute. Each measurement takes between 3 to 5 minutes and results are available immediately following the Nevisense test in our NYC location.
If you notice an irregular birthmark, mole, sore or spot on your body, visit Dr. Gary Goldenberg or Dr. Kristina Goldenberg to diagnose a potential skin cancer or put your mind at ease. An analysis with Nevisense detects melanoma or abnormal mole at the earliest stage and leads to earlier treatment plan. A treatment session at Goldenberg Dermatology can help provide patients with must needed clarity and the explanations they deserve.
When it comes to skin cancer, early-detection and a high level of treatment can make a valuable difference to patients. Your doctor will discuss the advantages of Nevisense and possible outcomes during the consultation. Please contact Goldenberg Dermatology today to schedule an appointment.
