Dr. Binhlam’s May Monthly Tip: Protecting Your Skin During Skin Cancer Awareness Month

May marks Skin Cancer Awareness Month, a crucial time to prioritize your skin health, especially as we head into the summer months. Here are some key tips to keep your skin protected.

1. Sunscreen, Every Day

Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day, even on
cloudy days. Reapply every two hours or more often if swimming or sweating.

2. Seek Shade

Limit your time in direct sunlight, especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun’s rays are strongest. Shade can significantly reduce your risk of sunburn and skin damage.

3. Protective Clothing

Wear sun-protective clothing, such as wide-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts, and sunglasses with UV protection. This helps shield your skin from harmful UV rays.

4. Avoid Tanning Beds

Indoor tanning beds emit harmful UV radiation, increasing your risk of skin cancer. Opt for sunless tanning alternatives instead.

5. Regular Skin Checks

Perform monthly self-examinations of your skin to detect any changes or suspicious lesions. If you notice any unusual moles or growths, promptly consult a dermatologist. Remember, prevention is key when it comes to skin cancer. Adopting these habits can protect your skin
and reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. Stay safe and sun-aware this Skin Cancer Awareness Month!

Most people receive a minimum series of three Clear + Brilliant laser treatments to achieve their desired results. Plus, there’s little to no downtime following treatment, so ou don’t have to worry about swelling, redness, and discomfort after your procedure. The Clear + Brilliant treatment can be scheduled in Binhlam Aesthetics.

Who is a Good Candidate for Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatment?

Many laser treatments aren’t effective on all skin types due to the risk of hyperpigmentation and other adverse effects. The gentle Clear + Brilliant treatment technology is effective for patients of any skin
type; even those with sensitive skin can typically receive this treatment.

In most cases, patients choose Clear + Brilliant to prevent or treat the signs of aging, so the majority of patients will be in their 20s or
older. When started early, Clear + Brilliant treatments offer significant anti-aging benefits, so this fractional laser therapy is quickly becoming a go-to preventive dermatology solution.
