Sun Protection Starts Now!

Get Back in the SPF Habit

sun protection

At last the snow has gone, the wind is not biting cold and the blossoms are coming out. Dare we hope that summer 2013 is on its way?

Quinn Clinics are reminding patients to get back into the habit of applying sun block daily.

We all know the advice about sun protection, yet many of us still leave it until our big holiday, or after we’ve had a couple of surprise over-exposures.

The best way to protect your skin and avoid premature signs of ageing is to wear a SPF30+ sun block every day. Even in winter, even when it’s cloudy.

If you have got out of the habit of applying sun cream, time to get back into it.

Sun Damage

As well as premature ageing, sun damage can cause problems with pigmentation or hyperpigmentation, sun spots, dry skin, poor complexion and even melanoma. 

Where melanoma is suspected, moles should be checked as soon as possible by a medical professional.

Meanwhile, modern cosmetic treatments can address issues such as melasma, redness, age spots and wrinkles. Botox anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers give superb results in tackling specific lines and creases, while laser IPL and CO2 fractional laser are able to stimulate the skin’s own healing for a clearer, smoother texture.

Skin Clinics London, Bristol

Sun damage is a very individual issue, so for bespoke advice a consultation with an experienced and skilled aesthetic medicine doctor is the first step forward.
