Although Skin Cancer Awareness Month is coming to a close, the summer is just beginning, and that means many of us will be spending more time out in the sun.
The skin cancer rate in the U.S. has increased dramatically over the years, and according to the U.S. Surgeon General, it has become “a major public health problem.” Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer, but it is largely preventable. Limiting exposure to the sun is a no-brainer, but making sure you use sunscreen correctly is key. We ran across this article in Real Simple magazine about how the proper use of sunscreen can decrease your risk of getting skin cancer.
It’s a good idea to regularly examine your skin and become familiar with moles and freckles and watch them for changes. And if you do notice that something looks different, make an appointment to see your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to have the suspicious place examined and removed if necessary. So go and enjoy the beach or the lake or the pool, but be sure to take care of your skin.
During the month of May, we are proud to be collecting for the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia – a network working to feed the ill, needy, seniors and children of northeast Georgia. When we did our “Give Thanks and Give Back” special in November, we were told that there were a lot of food drives around the holidays but that it dropped off afterwards. So we decided that for our a-MAY-zing special this year, we would collect for them again. Just bring in canned goods or other nonperishable food items, and you can save on Botox, Juvederm and Voluma.
Simply bring in the following items to take advantage of our a-MAY-zing specials.
- 10+ cans/nonperishables = Botox for $10/unit (min 20 units)
- 20+ cans/nonperishables = $100 off Juvederm treatment*
- 20+ cans/nonperishables = $100 off Voluma treatment*
*$100 off total treatment, not per syringe
Not valid with any other offer.
**We have been advised by the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia that proteins are important but often not donated, so canned beans and meats are always appreciated.
