Sun Protection

We take the health and beauty of your skin as seriously as you do. Whether you've had a surgical procedure, a non-surgical treatment, or just want to care for your skin, sun protection is vital.

Why do you need it?

We all know that exposure to the sun can be harmful to the skin. Here are a just few important reasons why you should take sun protection seriously:

  • Sun exposure causes 90% of wrinkles, while aging causes just 10%.
  • The primary cause of skin cancer is exposure to ultraviolet light (UV). 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer over a lifetime.
  • It takes only 1 severe burn during childhood to double the risk of skin cancer in adulthood.
  • In the United States, 1 person dies of melanoma every hour.

What can I do to protect myself?

It's important to use sunscreen whenever you are outdoors. Keep in mind the following precautions before you head outdoors:

  • UV rays are hazardous on cloudy and hazy days, as well as bright and sunny days, so make sure to apply sunscreen.
  • The hours between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm are the most hazardous for UV exposure.
  • Remember to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours or more - especially if you're surfing or swimming.
  • A thin, white cotton shirt has a sun protection factor (SPF) of only about 7.
  • There's no such thing as all-day protection, even if your sunscreen is waterproof.
  • Before going in the sun, grab a hat and sunglasses...don't underestimate their protection.
  • Be aware that surfaces such as sand, water, concrete, and snow reflect up to 85% of damaging UV rays; 80% can pass through cloud cover, haze, and fog.

What sunscreens do you recommend?

At Spa One, we offer a variety of SkinMedica®, SkinCeuticals® and Obagi® products. They all provide protection from UVA rays, which are responsible for premature signs of aging, and UVB rays, which cause sunburn and may contribute to the development of skin cancer. We can help you choose the products that will best fit your lifestyle and your individual skin care needs.
