Do you Practice Safe Sun?

skin-cancer-blog

Skin Cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and unprotected UV exposure the most preventable risk factor.

Luckily, protecting yourself from harmful UV rays is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Seek Shade – Keeping in mind that the sun’s rays are strongest from 10 AM to 2 PM.
  2. Wear Sun-Protective Clothing – When possible, wear lightweight, long-sleeved shirts, pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses with UV protection. For additional protection, choose clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) number on the label.
  3. Apply Sunscreen - Apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to all skin that isn’t covered by clothing and reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating.

Click Here to test your knowledge about sun protection and share your results on social media with the hashtag #PracticeSafeSun to help others avoid harmful UV exposure.

In addition to being the most common type of cancer in the United States, Skin Cancer is also the most treatable – if detected early so be sure to practice monthly self-exams using the ABCDE’s of melanoma and, if you find any new spots, spots that are different from others, or spots that are changing, itching, or bleeding – contact your dermatologist and don’t skip your annual check up by your dermatologist.

Ready to go from fatter to flatter?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7J77fG9uto

The revolutionary new VANQUISH ME uses Selective RF™ technology to shrink and eliminate fat cells by selectively heating subcutaneous fat pockets (fat deposits that sit beneath the skin, but above the muscle), thereby reducing the circumference of the entire abdominal area or inner and outer thighs.

Radio frequency preferentially heats adipose tissue, disrupting fatty cells without impacting other types of cells on the skin or other structures.

VANQUISH ME has the largest treatment area in the industry and it is completely contactless for unrivaled comfort and safety, without BMI <30 limitations.

It has been documented that VANQUISH ME treatments cause permanent fat reduction with results visible even after 4 years.

How to check your skin for skin cancer

https://youtu.be/XT_Twkfx2yM

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and finding spots that could be cancerous is as simple as looking at your skin.

When examining the skin, look for the ABCDEs of Melanoma and make an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist if any moles exhibit these signs:

A – Asymmetry: One half of the spot is unlike the other half.

B – Border: The spot has an irregular, scalloped or poorly defined border.

C – Color: The spot has varying colors from one area to the next, such as shades of tan, brown, or black, or with areas of white, red, or blue.

D – Diameter: Melanomas are usually greater than 6mm, or about the size of a pencil eraser when they are diagnosed, but they can be smaller.

E – Evolving: A mole or spot on your skin that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape, or color.

To check your skin, looking at the front and back of your body. When examining your own skin, stand in front of a mirror. Examine your skin by following these steps:

  • Raise the arms and examine the right and left sides of the body.
  • Then bend your elbows and look carefully at your forearms, upper underarms.
  • Next, examine the back of your legs, spaces between your toes and your soles.
  • Then, examine those hard‐to see areas like your back, buttocks and the top ofyour head. Use a mirror to inspect the back of your neck and scalp, parting your hair for a better view.

“Current estimates show one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime, so it’s important to be familiar with your skin, especially your moles,” said Dr. Rohrer. “Catching skin cancer early is key for successful treatment, so check your skin regularly and see a board-certified dermatologist if you spot anything suspicious.”
