Tanning beds goers, chronic sun burners, bronzing oil appliers… believe us when we say that there are other ways to get the “sun kissed” look.
Whether it’s opting for a self-tanner that contains healthy ingredients for the skin or taking other measures to protect yourself when in the sun, we share our tips for sun safety below so you can be as prepared for summer as possible. Or really any season here in sunny Denver, Colorado. We see and treat the damaging effects of the sun on our patient’s skin EVERY DAY. It often appears as poor texture, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and hyperpigmentation.
Why do we care about sun safety so much? Well, if you’ve got skin, which you do, then we care – because we’re a Denver Medical Spa that makes it our job to help you get and maintain healthy skin. But there’s also another reason. Did you know our founder, Pamela Hill-Grossman RN, CANS, is a melanoma survivor? A three-time melanoma survivor, actually. We are so grateful that she has been able to successfully complete each surgery and clear adequate margins to say she is cancer free, but her journey, and the journey of so many, have taught us something about skin cancer: It doesn’t discriminate by age, race or gender.
While people with fairer skin are at greater risk, the way we treat our skin, starting in our younger, formative years is so important to decrease our risk of melanoma. At any age, sunscreen is key – actually, all of these prevention tips are key.
Take a look…
Secondary prevention focuses on the early detection of melanoma. This includes both monthly self-examinations of your skin and yearly skin examinations by your physician.2
