Mineral Sunscreen Helps Prevent Skin Cancer
Melanoma reconstructive surgery in Alberta

May is a month to remind ourselves of the importance of taking care of our skin as it marks Skin Cancer Awareness month. It’s essential to protect ourselves from the harmful UV rays of the sun, which cause skin cancer. Luckily, there are effective ways to prevent skin damage and reduce the risk of skin cancer, such as using mineral sunscreen.

By blocking both UVA and UVB rays, mineral sunscreens offer longer-lasting protection than traditional sunscreens.

However, it’s just the first step towards skin protection. Regular skin cancer screening is also a vital part of ensuring good skin health.

Unfortunately in some cases, MOHs surgery may also be necessary, which can be followed by reconstructive surgery for skin functionality and appearance.

Dr. Secretan frequently removes skin cancer and does reconstructive surgery after MOHS surgery to remove invasive skin cancers.

Regular skin cancer screening could lead to less invasive treatment methods. Checking your skin regularly and consulting a doctor to address any suspicious signs is crucial.

Early detection is the key to successfully treating skin cancer.
