Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka highlights the dangers of tanning beds and their links with skin cancer
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/26/2014 -- Tanning bed dangers is the subject of this week’s short video from Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist, Dr Barry Lycka.
In his latest video, Dr Lycka highlights the dangers to skin from using tanning beds and how they add to the likelihood of getting burnt, causing skin damage and the very strong link between tanning bed usage, burnt skin and the likelihood of getting Melanoma skin cancer – the potentially deadly form of skin cancer that claims lives every year.
Dr Lycka is very clear about the danger of tanning beds, and highlights a couple of common ‘excuses’ why people like to use them. This topic was also the subject of a recent episode of Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, on 21 April 2014, when Dr Lycka and Executive Director of the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation, Leona Yez, discussed an ongoing campaign to ban the use of tanning beds for those under 18.
This video is part of a mini-series of videos about skin care and skin health, part of Dr Lycka’s ongoing series of cosmetic surgery educational videos known as YourCosmeticDoctor.tv.
