    Did you know that regular use of sunscreen at any age reduces the incidence of all skin cancers and decreases the incidence of squamous cell cancer by a whopping 40%. Surprisingly in the United States only 30% of women and 15% of men use sunscreen regularly and 39% of American households have never purchase sunscreen.

    Each year we treat more than 1000 skin cancers in our office mostly on patients who readily admit to not wearing sunscreen. Sunscreens are also proven to prevent brown spots and wrinkles so why not get into the habit, reduce your risk of getting skin cancer and keeps looking good while doing it.

    Environmental skin aging resulting in wrinkles, irregular pigment spots and sagging has long been attributed to excessive sun exposure but new evidence shows that airborne particulate matter and noxious gases in air pollution are also damaging to exposed human skin. 
    The World Health Organization has declared that air pollution (outdoor and indoor) is the largest single environmental health risk and most of it comes from fuel combustion. Studies regarding effects on cardiovascular and pulmonary systems looked at exposure to traffic related particle emissions and this prompted researchers to also look at effects on the skin.
    They found that women living within 100 yards of a busy road had more facial brown spots and wrinkling than women living further away from traffic. Similar findings were found in Chinese woman cooking indoors with solid fuels and we have also known for a long time that tobacco smoke causes wrinkles by degrading collagen.
    Fortunately advances in sunscreen technology are keeping pace with these new findings. Better sunscreens have long incorporated physical blockers like zinc and titanium dioxide to protect against environmental pollutants and now the best sunscreens contain potent antioxidants as well.
    Products like SkinMedica Total Defense and Repair protect us from both ultraviolet light and airborne pollutants with zinc oxide and also contain potent antioxidants to help repair aging skin.
    If you want to maximize your home both skin protection and skin repair schedule a consultation with our esthetician today.

    The Skin is the first thing people notice. There are many office treatments to help smooth your skin. As your dermatology providers we can inject the Botox and Juvederm and then, peel, laser or microneedle your skin but, to maintain your glow you need to adhere to a great home skin care regimen as well.
     Just as with physical fitness one must exercise and eat right otherwise you relapse to your former self.
     Our skin is constantly renewing itself and a home skin care regimen that includes good sunscreen, antioxidants and growth factors enhances the glow that keeps skin looking great. Skin health like physical fitness excels when we give it our full attention.
