Many people share the misconception that a sagging, wrinkled, and dark-spotted face results from the aging process. Nonetheless, the effects are caused mainly by exposure to the sun. Direct exposure to the sun even during the winter seasons puts you at risk of suffering from skin cancer.

Dr. Tim Ioannides is a dermatologist who deals with skin cancer patients in the U.S. Skin cancer has become a killer disease claiming over two lives in the U.S. every hour. Even though skin cancer has become a threatening and prevailing catastrophe, very few people give it the attention it necessitates.

He founded Treasure Coast Dermatology and has been serving the residents of Treasure Coast for more than 15 years. The American Board of Dermatology has certified Ioannides to conduct dermatology procedures. He is also part of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society for Mohs Surgery, and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

The sun emits three types of UV rays, and only UVA and UVB rays reach the planet. UVA rays are intense, and they deeply penetrate the human skin. The penetration damages elastin, which is the skin fibers. The damaged threads will, therefore, cause the skin to sag, develop wrinkles and dark spots.

According to Tim Ioannides MD, the majority of the people suffering from sunburns and skin reddening are due to direct exposure to UVB rays. UVB rays are responsible for the DNA cell damages in your skin. In pursuit of repairing the damaged DNA, the body fills the damaged areas with blood, hence the sunburn or red skin.

A damaged skin cell DNA prevents your body from growing skin cells. Instead, your skin starts growing abnormal skin tissues which later develop into cancerous tumors. The sun is healthy, but the UVA and UVB rays are harmful to your skin.

Dr. Tim believes wearing sunscreen is essential but doesn’t work the absolute magic. Therefore, you should consider avoiding the sun’s UV rays. Today, technological advancements have helped the fashion and fabric industry to develop clothes that are hot-season related. Covering your body and preventing direct contact with the sun will always prevent you from the risk of skin cancer.
