When you meet with Dr. Vessely or any of our medical professionals, you will hear that the first step in skin care is the daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Sunscreens of SPF 15 or higher are recommended year-round. Applying a sunscreen should be a part of your daily routine. Be advised that not all sunscreens are alike; some only protect against UVB rays, others (broad-spectrum) provide protection against both UVA and UVB. All of our sunscreens contain zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide – two great defenses against the sun’s harmful rays.
