Preventing Sun Damage

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


In our sunny Colorado climate, you have to take steps every day to prevent skin damage. Our experienced Denver and Littleton skin care staff can help rejuvenate your skin with a variety of skin therapies, but for everyday protection, try these tips.

  • Sunscreen. Use at least SPF 15 and apply liberally. If you’re going swimming, make sure to use waterproof sunscreen. You should reapply about every two hours.
  • Cover up. The suns rays are most harmful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wear a hat or carry an umbrella and try to stay out of direct sunlight during these hours.
  • Mind the reflection. You may not think about it, but water and snow will reflect the sun’s rays and can burn you on cloudy days or in places you may not think to cover, like your neck and chin.

Avoiding sun damage will help you maintain your young and healthy look for longer. When you need an extra boost, try our facial rejuvenation treatments to restore your healthy glow.

If you are in the Littleton area and want to keep your skin glowing this spring and summer, please call 303-320-5566 today or contact Grossman Plastic Surgery for your skin care consultation.
