Dr. Verne Weisberg, founder and owner of The Plastic Surgery Center advises diligent use of sun protection year round to prevent aging skin and protect against skin cancer.
Portland, ME, August 31, 2015: Owner and Founder of The Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Verne Weisberg posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Protect Your Skin Year Round.” It appears that Dr. Weisberg is a proponent of sun care as a major component of skin care.
Weisberg writes, “This time of year many people start feeling a little sad as summer begins to turn to fall and the sun doesn’t seem quite so strong.” He continues urging, “Please don’t use that as an excuse to become cavalier about protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays which are present year round.”
According to Weisberg, “If you’ve ever had any kind of cosmetic procedure, surgical or non surgical or are considering one to help reduce lines, wrinkles and the signs of aging, you’ll want to be especially diligent. Sun exposure is by far the greatest contributor to skin cancers and prematurely aging skin.”
Weisberg advises, “Sun protection is a year-round necessity no matter your age or skin type. It is even more important once you’ve had a cosmetic procedure. So make it part of your daily routine, like brushing your teeth. And don’t skip it just because the sun isn’t shining.”
