Sunbeds in the news

Overuse of sunbeds 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 are 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 vitamin 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 us and arrange an appointment for a rapid assessment by a consultant plastic surgeon specialising in the treatment of skin cancer.
