Spring is upon us and summer is near. With longer days, many of us will embrace outdoor activities and the sun for the matter. Although there are some benefits to a modest amount of sun exposure, unprotected exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation has been proven to be a major factor in the development of skin cancer. The best skin cancer prevention strategy aims at minimizing sun exposure. This includes wearing sun-protective clothing and wide-brimmed hats, seeking shade when UV exposure is most intense, between the hours of 10 am to 2 pm, and the routine use of sunscreen.

As millennials enter their third and forth decade of life, more and more are seeking advice from dermatologists for early signs of aging. For those of you that have heard the term millennials but don't know what this means, here is my mediocre attempt to define it. Millennials describe a group of individuals born from the early 1980's to the early 2000's who possess a fascinating familiarity with technology. In the age of Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and nonstop selfies, millennials are becoming more concerned about their physical appearance. This has directly contributed to the recent surge in cosmetic procedures worldwide. Whether it be forehead wrinkles, frown lines, dark spots, or undervolumized lips, millennials want it addressed!
Lasers have become an integral part of treatment in dermatology.
Their history in dermatology began in the mid-sixties when the first lasers were used on human skin. One of the pioneers was Dr. Leon Goldman, The chairman of dermatology at the University of Cincinnati.
The initial attempts were for the treatment of congenital hemangiomas also known as port-wine stains.
This was an entity that had resisted various forms of therapy yet was very debilitations for the patients and distressful for their parents. The results were dramatic and a true breakthrough.
