NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - Silverberg Surgical and Medical Group, a practice specializing in cosmetic and medical dermatology in Newport Beach, provides a resource for the latest news in skincare on the practice's blog. The blog reports on everything from recent studies on a shingles vaccine to a rise in "Brotox" treatments.
While many people today are more conscious about sun protection than they were in the past, a person may be receiving damaging sun exposure without even realizing it. Dr. Nancy Silverberg, a Newport Beach dermatologist, points out through the practice's blog that a recent report from ABC World News exposes just how much sun exposure people may be receiving right through their car windows. The New England Journal of Medicine published a photograph of a 69-year-old truck driver who exhibited wrinkles only on the driver's window side of his face. He had been driving for 28 years and the other side of his face remains wrinkle-free. Dr. Silverberg says this report shows the importance of guarding one's self from UV rays on a daily basis -- with high SPF sunscreens and protective clothing -- to make sure a person is protecting themselves even in circumstances when one might not think they are at risk for overexposure.
In a different blog report, the Orange County dermatology practice provides updates on Mohs Micrographic Surgery (MMS). The medical journal Dermatologic Surgery conducted a recent study citing MMS as the most cost-effective skin cancer treatment available. Dr. Nancy Silverberg specializes in Mohs Micrographic Surgery, which treats basal cell carcinoma -- the most common form of cancer in America. MMS can cost about a third less than standard surgical excision treatments. The cause of the cancer is most often attributed to overexposure to the sun's UV rays. The treatment removes cancerous growth with a layer-by-layer process until it can be confirmed that all cancerous cells are removed from the skin tissue. Silverberg's blog reminds its readers that one of the best ways to ensure successful treatment is early detection and diagnosis.
