Sun Beds in the News

Dangers of Overuse

Sun Beds in the News

Over use of sun beds is in the news as the incidence of skin cancer has soared in certain cities. It is the unregulated use, the use by the under eighteens and the use of coin operated sun beds that is causing concern. Here in Bristol we have quite a number of Tanning shops but we are also blessed with easy access to sunny holiday destinations.

At Bristol Plastic Surgery, we do recognise the health benefits of sunshine in boosting our Vit D levels and our sense of well being. We do however support the sensible regulation and testing of tanning equipment.

If you have any concerns about moles of any type and would like reassurance or where appropriate a biopsy, then contact BPS and arrange an appointment at our Rascal Clinic for rapid assessment by a Consultant Plastic Surgeon specialising in the treatment of Skin Cancer.
