Sunscreen and Skincare in South Florida – What You NEED to Know
Thanks to South Florida’s temperate winters and constant glowing sun, us Floridian’s love being able to boast that we “live where others vacation.”
However, with perpetual sunlight comes a constant exposure to dangerous ultraviolet radiation that can cause skin cancer, dark spots or other troublesome skin issues.
At Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, we are the key dermatologists in Boca who specialize in preventing skin damage with some of the best skincare products on the market. We also offer innovative sun damage treatments to get that healthy radiant glow back into your skin.
One of the best ways to prevent skin damage is by applying sunscreen every day.
Here are the facts about sunscreen and how it can help you.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Reduce your chances by applying sunscreen that is SPF 30 or higher, water-resistant and that offers broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center offers a variety of products including some of the best sunscreen options on the market today. Our Sun Shield Spray contains micronized zinc oxide, an ingredient that your sunscreen needs to contain in order to be effective. Our sunscreen is also fortified with antioxidants like green tea polyphenols and vitamin C.
On top of wearing sunscreen every day, here are a few tips to help you avoid skin damage:
- Seek shade when the sun is the strongest, usually between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
- Wear protective clothing.
- Vitamin D is important, but get it a safer way through your diet or supplements.
- Say no to tanning beds.
- Have a routine to check your body for moles and sun damage on a regular basis.
- If you see something that seems off, contact us.
If you do begin to see the effects of the sun damaging your skin, we do offer a selection of treatments to help you:
If a laser near your face or body is a terrifying thought, there’s nothing to worry about. Laser technology has had a lot of major advances and lasers are now a common way to treat many skin conditions and issues. The Fraxel Laser’s technology can reverse the visible effects of aging and sun damage by helping to heal damaged skin and helping to minimize the appearance of age spots.
This IPL laser treatment that emits light waves, targets the brown pigment in age spots. Its goal is to lighten and remove sunspots or age spots on the face, chest, hands and other areas.
Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center offers a wide range of treatments for the skin. With our every day exposure to the sun, you need a Boca skincare professional who will be there for you to answer all the questions you have about prevention, and help you create a treatment plan if your skin does get damaged by the sun.
