It can be easy to forget or forego applying sunscreen. It can take a while and result in oily skin at times. Even though it can be a messy, long process, it’s essential to keep in mind the “why” behind that critical application of sunscreen. The Skin Cancer Foundation details Skin Cancer Facts & Statistics. You can read here for further information, but Medical Dermatology Specialists would like to highlight some of these.

Skin Cancer Facts & Statistics

  1. More people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the United States than all other cancers combined.
  2. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70.
  3. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form, while squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common form of skin cancer.
  4. SPF 15 or higher sunscreen applied daily reduces your risk of developing SCC or BCC by about 40 percent and 50 percent for melanoma.
  5. Estimates show that the number of new melanoma cases will increase by 7.7 percent in 2019.

How To Properly Apply Sunscreen

The American Academy of Dermatology Association suggests easy steps you can take to apply your sunscreen effectively. They recommend using it before you go outdoors and apply enough to cover all exposed, bare skin. It should be reapplied every two hours, or immediately after swimming or sweating.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
