Spring has arrived! It’s official, as we are already seeing more sunburns coming into our doors at Revival Dermatology. It’s important to remember to do what you can to prevent further sun damage. Of course, we want you to wear sunscreen. Every day! And remember to reapply. We also know this is easier said than done! Did you know that there is a supplement that you can take in a pill form that will give you protection from the sun? It’s a fern extract called Polypodium Leucotomas, and at Revival Dermatology we carry the SUNISDIN brand. This extract starts working within 30 minutes of ingesting it, and can give you added protection for several hours. It’s recommended to do with sunscreen of course, but for those still burning or tanning with sunscreen on, it’s a nice addition.
Have you scheduled your full body skin exam for the year? It’s important to do this at least every year (and more often if you’ve had recent skin cancer or melanoma). Since opening Revival Dermatology, we have already found numerous skin cancers on patients that were unsuspecting that they had a certain cancer growing on their skin. If caught early, skin cancer is generally easy to treat. It’s the cancers that are undetected for years that typically can be more challenging to treat.
Stay tuned for more information on a special Mother’s Day event we are planning for April 28th from 1-6pm. We will have discounts on certain services and all products during the event. Gift certificates are also available if you are looking for a gift any mom would be sure to love.
We at Revival Dermatology wish you a beautiful Spring full of outdoor fun with adequate sun protection! We hope to see you soon.
