Make skin cancer prevention a breeze with premium sun care.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, which means that we are doing our part to share information about important measures that you can take in order prevent this all-too-common disease.

Arguably THE most important skin cancer prevention step is to wear and reapply a broad spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 every day.

One of the major obstacles many patients face when forming the habit of applying sunscreen daily is the undesirable smell and texture that accompanies many over the counter sunscreen formulations. Is it any wonder that people put off applying or reapplying something that permeates the skin with the scent of chemical sunscreen and artificial fragrance, or feels heavy and greasy on their skin?

As skin experts, we take the job of guiding our patients to healthier and more beautiful skin seriously. Part of this work entails curating a high quality selection of treatments and products so that our patients do not have to navigate the often overwhelming and misleading world of skincare and cosmetics. At Macias Dermatology, all the skincare products we carry must pass our rigorous standards for safety, efficacy and ease of use. Dr. Macias himself tests out and tries every product we offer to our patients, so you can rest assured that anything we provide is something that he would not hesitate to use himself.
