The Most Important Anti–Aging Skincare Product That You Can Wear
Many of you have heard Dr. Tanne give her sunscreen “speech” when you sit in a consultation with her. She feels that the most important thing that you can do when you come to Cosmetic Laser MD is to learn about and get proper sun protection.
Effective sunscreen must protect against the short UVB (B – think BURN) and longer UVA (A – thing AGING) rays. Mineral sunblock is the only type of sunscreen that effectively and elegantly provides protection against both the UVA and UVB rays. Remember, SPF (sun protection factor) only refers to the UVB protection in you sunscreen. It protects against a sunburn but does not block the more damaging UVA radiation.
After evaluating numerous sunscreens, Dr. Tanne had brought ELTA MD Skincare Sunscreens into Cosmetic Laser MD for her patients. EltaMD sunscreens help prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun, when used with other sun protection measures. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free.
