Protect your skin from the sun, its the best ways to slow down the aging process.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancer. UV damage can also cause wrinkles and blotchy skin.

These are just some of the reasons why the Vitenas Cosmetic Center is proud to participate in UV Safety Month and help raise awareness of the risks of sun damage. During the month of July, join us in taking action to prevent skin cancer and reduce the risk of UV damage.

• “The best thing that you can do to prevent skin cancer is wear a full spectrum SPF 30 or higher. Also by doing this you reduce your risk of sun spots, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles”, says the Vitenas Cosmetic Centers’ Aesthetician, Sharon Steele-Tran.

You can take these steps to help prevent skin cancer & protect your skin:

  • Wear SPF 30 or higher EVERYDAY (make sure it’s main ingredients are Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide for true protection)
  • Stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Cover up with long sleeves and a hat
  • Check your skin regularly for changes – Learn How Here (http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer)
  • Take your vitamins & antioxidants through diet: Blueberries, Green Tea, {Pomegranates, Carrots, Cherries and Broccoli are just a few great things to add to your daily diet to reduce your chance of skin cancer!
  • Start adding a Vitamin A topical to your daily skin care regimen

Treatments of UV Damage once you have signs: brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, redness:

  • IPL (photofacials) – reduce redness, brown spots, reduces pore size and improved overall texture
  • Titan & Laser Genesis –  tighten lose, UV damaged collagen bands that you have and stimulate new collagen growth with these “zero-downtime” treaments. Also improves texture, firmness, reduces pore size and redness.
  • Chemical Peels – Thickens dermis (good for collagen stimulation), thins the epidermis (to push off all the dead dull skin), brightens and assists with oil and moisture balance.
  • Microdermabrasion/Epidermal Leveling – Takes off the top layers of dead dull skin with no downtime, lightens and brightens
  • Medical Skin Care Regimen – can reduce brown spots, keep skin looking young and smooth and in some cases reduce your risk of skin cancer, fine lines and wrinkles!
