Clocks Change – Time for a Sun Protection Warning

sun protection

As the clocks went forward this weekend, the nation’s groans about a lost hour’s sleep are somewhat lessened with that feeling of wellbeing which comes from seeing longer days. No more is it dark by 6pm, with a bit more daylight at the end of the day, we can feel that summer’s on its way. 

For many, that means a bit more time outside – exercising or enjoying the sun’s more frequent appearances.

Sun Screen Warning

This is a time of year when sun protection is low down the priority list. After a winter in, we can forget about the importance of protecting the skin against UVA and UVB rays. We can underestimate the strength of the sun in springtime or stay outside longer than expected.

Mole removal experts Cosmedics Skin Clinics are warning clients to get back into the habit of sun screen.

Mole Check

It’s also a good time of year to carry out a quick mole check to see whether there are any suspicious signs of change that need to be checked out to rule out any need for concern. Suspicious moles will be removed by the NHS and further advice and treatment given as necessary.

Cosmetic Moles

Thankfully, most moles are not ‘suspicious’ and therefore not of medical concern. These can be safely and quickly removed by doctors in private clinics such as Cosmedics Skin Clinics.

Mole Removal Surgery

Cosmedics’ team of doctors offer mole surgery using a variety of techniques. Laser mole treatment is popular for smaller lesions as it is quick, pain-free and minimises scarring. For larger moles, surgery is usually the best option with shave excision or ellipse excision (with stitches).

All moles are tested with a full histology report even when there was no need for concern.
