The British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) has announced the dates of their 2014 Sun Awareness Week.
This national campaign, overseen by the BAD’s Skin Cancer Prevention Committee and comprised of leading medical professionals with expertise in skin cancer, vitamin D and public health messaging, will run from 5th to 11th May.
Dr Thevendra from The Apsaras Clinic in Coventry, Midlands says: “The campaign combines prevention and detection advice.”
The first aim is to encourage people to regularly self-examine for skin cancer. The second is to teach people about the dangers of sunburn and excessive tanning, and to discourage people from using sunbeds, in light of the associated risks of skin cancer.
In addition to public education about the dangers of sunbed use, the BAD has also been involved in campaigning for legislation to regulate the sunbed industry and is continuing to push towards further and improved regulation.
At APSARAS Clinic in the West Midlands we know the importance of looking after your skin and making the best of your appearance. Dr Thevendra offers various skin rejuvenation treatments at his state of the art clinic, including skin peels and PRP MyCells therapy.
