While skin cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed forms of cancer, it also falls amongst the most preventable cancer types. Dr. Scott Thompson encourages both men and women to follow a Salt Lake City skin protection routine to promote optimum skin health.

1. Forego tanning by all means. Tanning beds are actually more dangerous than going outdoors to catch some sun. The high-pressure sunlamps found in new tanning bed units release as much as 12 times more than natural UV rays exposure.

2. Lather on sunscreen as much as you can. It doesn’t really matter whether you’re still on your early 20s or you’re already in your 40s. While most of those who develop skin cancer are between 45 and 55 years old, be consistent with your sunscreen no matter which age group you’re in. Go for a broad-spectrum sunscreen such as the Obagi Nu-Derm

System.

3. Regularly check your skin for unusual growths and always include non-exposed areas of the body. Check your moles for any change in size, shape and appearance. If you’re still in doubt, visit a specialist as soon as you can.

A visit to Dr. Thompson’s clinic should be in order. Schedule an initial consultation today!
