Sunscreen Reduces Risk of Skin Cancer

One of the best ways to protect yourself from this disease is wearing sunscreen. With an SPF of 30 or higher, be sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen and reapply every two hours when you spend time outdoors.

Avoid Sunburn

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy. In order to correct the appearance of skin concerns on the surface from within, Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL harnesses the healing benefits of light energy.
