Optima Dermatology on News Center Maine

Sunscreen should be a priority year-round for the face and any other areas of the skin that have direct sun exposure. However this time of year applying sunscreen and practicing safe sun is even more important. Sunscreen provides protection from UV rays. UV rays from the sun impact the skin and its connective tissue over time as a result of repeated sun exposure. Some longer-term consequences of repeated sun exposure can include sun spots, wrinkles and lines, and skin cancer.

Holly Morris, PA-C, board-certified physician assistant at our Scarborough, ME location in the Greater Portland area, had the chance to talk with Aaron Myler of News Center Maine to discuss the importance of sunscreen and share tips on practicing safe sun.
