FACTS ABOUT SUN DAMAGE

Sunscreen isn’t just a necessity at the pool or beach. The Kwan Dermatology team encourages you to make sunscreen a part of your daily skin care regimen – even on cloudy, overcast days. The damaging effects of the sun causes wrinkles, brown “sun spots,” skin laxity and various forms of skin cancer. Sunspots are dark, hyperpigmented spots on the skin that appear as a result of the bodys attempt to protect itself from the sun’s damaging rays by producing excess melanin. The melanin then causes the dark coloration on the skin. For the most part, sunspots are harmless, but they do result in making the skin appear older and less healthy. In some cases, dark spots are an indicator of skin cancer. If you notice any changes in your spots, it’s imperative that you immediately have it checked by a board-certified dermatologist. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer amongst Americans. Protecting your skin with sunscreen and getting regular screenings is imperative in the prevention this potentially fatal disease.
