May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

Heading into the summer months, most people are aware that sun-exposure is a risk factor in developing skin cancers.  What many forget, however, is that overexposure to the sun is not the ONLY cause of skin cancers.  The most common skin cancers are basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas and malignant melanomas.

Here are some tips from Clark Podiatry Center:

1. When applying sunscreen this summer, don't forget to apply some to the top of your foot.  This area is often neglected, the skin is thin, so it is at high risk for sunburn.

2. Learn the ABCDs of melanoma--asymmetry, border, color, diameter. 

3. Just because a spot or mole has been present on your foot and unchanged for many years doesn't necessarily mean that it is benign--or that it can't change into something more serious.  Some of the most innocent looking skin lesions can be cancerous. The key lies in early detection.  A simple biopsy which causes very little discomfort can be performed right in our office in a matter of minutes.  The peace of mind you can get from knowing what the lesion is can be priceless.

4. To learn more about skin lesions of all kinds, visit our website at www.clarkpodiatry.com.  There's information about all sorts of foot problems, and you can find more specific information about skin cancer and other lesions

5. Do you have a skin lesion that concerns you?  Contact us through our website or call us at 732-382-3470 to schedule an appointment.  You'll be glad you did.

Keryflex Toenail Restoration - No More Ugly Toenails!

There are many causes of thick and ugly toenails. Fungal nails, trauma, and injuries from sports such as soccer, basketball and running can cause damage to the toenails. When there is fungus, medication can be used to treat it, but you still have to wait almost a year for the nail to have a better appearance. If the nail is deformed from trauma, there is often no treatment other than a topical solution and hope...until now!


Clark Podiatry Center is proud to announce that we offer the Keryflex toenail restoration system. This procedure uses polymer resins to create a flexible, durable artificial nail. This toenail looks and acts like your natural toenail. It can be filed, shaped and polished. The nail polish can even be removed with an acetone-based nail polish remover! 

This is a perfect treatment for men too! Even if the toenail isn't polished, it has a matte finish that looks completely natural. The Keryflex toenail is applied in the office in a painless procedure that takes approximately 15 minutes. There is no pain, no anesthetic, no surgery, and no lasers involved. You'll be amazed how great the toenail looks when you leave!  If you have toenail fungus, Keryflex can be applied immediately after treatment with our new laser.

Take a look to view a demonstration: Keryflex demonstration.


When you leave the office, you're ready to go. You can swim or shower immediately. You can even apply polish right away! Give us a call at 732-382-3470 and see you are a candidate for Keryflex. Since the only criteria is that you have a toenail that you want to look better...you probably are!
