Summer is on it’s way, but there is still time to get ready and take advantage of our May Specials at DermaSpa.
The Asarch Center for Dermatology and Laser has two separate areas, one for general dermatology and skin cancer surgery (Mohs micrographic surgery), and the other, our DermaSpa, for cosmetic dermatologic procedures (laser procedures, salt peels, and skin consultations). DID YOU KNOW? Dermaspa is open the first Saturday of each month for Spa Services! The weekend just became even more relaxing.

- It is UV Season! Make sure you protect yourself. The sun’s rays are most intense between 10 am and 3 pm and the strength of UV radiation varies with the time of year. While it is recommended that sun safety in Colorado should be a year-round concern, UV season for most areas is between March 1 and October 31. This is the time span during which the UV index routinely reaches or exceeds moderate levels and sun safety is essential.
You can confirm the relevant dates for your area by checking the annual UV index record. It is provided in graphic format by the National Weather Service for numerous cities at http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/stratosphere/uv_index/uv_annual.shtml

This is a great season for many reasons- longer days, warm weather, vacations, grilling, fresh fruits and vegetables- just to name a few. There are many ways to add skin health boosting ingredients into your diet this time of year.
This season’s fresh, antioxidant rich fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries can be eaten by themselves or added to your salad or a refreshing smoothie. Research continues to show that antioxidants, both those you get from food and those you apply topically, protect your skin against free radical damage.
Our bodies produce free radicals during normal metabolism and immune functions. Excessive exposure to Ultraviolet Light and environmental conditions increase the number of free radicals we produce. These free radicals cause oxidative damage to our genetic materials (DNA), proteins, cell membranes and other cellular components, speeding up the aging process. We keep this damage under control by neutralizing free radicals with natural enzymes and antioxidants.
Try this refreshing berry smoothie- good for you, good for your skin- from Dr. Asarch’s book The Beautiful Skin Diet. Now available for your kindle!
