Denver-Based Facial Aesthetics Supports American Melanoma Month

Donates portion of sunscreen sale proceeds during May to raise
awareness for melanoma prevention

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#MelanomaAwarenessMonth–The shadier side of Denver’s 300 plus days of mile-high sunshine is the
increased risk of melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – that
area residents face. The annual rate of new melanoma diagnoses in
Colorado is 15 percent higher than the national average, according to
the latest
from the National Cancer Institute and Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.

Prevention is the key word to remember during Melanoma Awareness Month,
and throughout May Facial
is donating a portion of the proceeds from its sunscreen
sales to the American
Melanoma Foundation
to help boost skin cancer awareness.

“The gold standard for skin cancer prevention starts at home, and it
starts early with a good skin care routine and sunscreen,” said Facial
Aesthetics President and Founder Pamela Hill, R.N. “So choose wisely and
enjoy our sunny, mild, mile-high weather.”

Colorado’s high altitude, more intense UV exposure and high level of
outdoor activity can still make prevention a challenge. The
professionals at Facial Aesthetics understand the foundations of good
skin care and routinely treat patients with sun-damaged skin. If sun
damage has already occurred, available treatment options such as chemical
, SkinPen® microneedling,
and laser
can be used to help repair the skin.

With another Colorado summer approaching, Facial Aesthetics offers these
simple tips for reducing the risk of over-exposure to the sun’s
potentially damaging effects:

  • Make sunscreen a daily habit; it can help prevent sun damage and lower
    the risk of skin cancer and melanoma. Dermatologists recommend a
    broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 for daily
  • Wear hats, which are important for protecting the forehead, shielding
    the eyes from the worst of the sun’s effects and preventing squinting
  • Use skin care products with ingredients such as retinol, peptides and
    antioxidants that can help fight wrinkles and improve the skin’s
    overall appearance
