Skin deep: Doctors discuss dermatology on Brooklyn TV show

Trust me on the sunscreen: Dr. Tatiana Khrom, right, will discuss skin care with Medcast Plus host Dr. Jack Braha during the next episode, airing on Sept. 21.

She wants to make sure you have skin in the game!

The latest episode of Brooklyn’s local monthly medical television show, Medcast Plus, will focus on skin care and other, deeper topics related to dermatology. The show features 30-minute interviews with local medical professionals, and this new episode will air on Brooklyn Free Speech Channel on Sept. 21.

The latest episode features regular host Dr. Jack Braha talking with Brighton Beach dermatologist Dr. Tatiana Khrom. The pair will discuss several topics, said Khrom, including the way that social media has affected the way that millennials picture themselves — and has increased the number of cosmetic surgeries among the young demographic.

During the show, she will also discuss a topic of prime importance to many teenagers: acne, and the possibility that not treating the dreaded skin condition properly can lead to scarring.

If viewers take away one thing from the show, said Khrom, it would be “knowing the importance of prevention.” Viewers should wear sunscreen before going outside, and regularly check themselves for unusual spots or premature aging, she said. Consulting a certified dermatologist early on can make a big difference in preventing serious skin cancer, or stopping the signs of aging, she said.

The goal of the show, which taped earlier this month, is to help doctors call attention to topics in the Brooklyn community that may be little known, and to inform people about how to get the proper care that they need.

“Medcast Plus” airs on Brooklyn Free Speech Channel 3 (Channel 79 on Spectrum, 9415 on Dish, 348 on Direct TV, and online at www.bricartsmedia.org/tv-shows-videos/brooklyn-free-speech-tv). Sept. 21 at 12:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m., and 2 p.m. Free.
