Damage from Tanning

Getting a tan is really not a good idea. Tanning exposes you to skin damage, cancer, and aging. The thinning ozone layer puts you at increased risk. There is an epidemic of Melanoma with increasing numbers of patients diagnosed with this cancer.

Any tan is bad - the tan IS skin damage.

Plastic surgery can help treat skin cancers and restore a more youthful look, but prevention is better.

Scars during healing need sun protection.
During the "red" phase, a tan acquired may not fade like surrounding skin. This can leave a permanent dark scar.

Defense against the sun can take the form of avoidance, topical sunscreens, and special sun protective clothing.
