Does Coffee Really Help to Prevent Melanoma?

A recent article on Cosmopolitan.com suggested that "…drinking lots of coffee could reduce your risk of developing cancerous melanoma." While Starbucks is tasty and we all need to be able to enjoy a good cup of coffee from time to time, ensuring your safety with a thorough regular annual skin exam will give you far better peace of mind in your fight against cancer. Read these do's and don'ts from Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Carolyn Jacob for a list of things you can do to help prevent skin cancer.

DO

  1. DO wear an SPF of 30 or higher every day.
  2. DO reapply sunscreen every 90 minutes or after swimming or sweating.
  3. DO keep sun protective clothing on when out in sun (UPF 50 or higher).
    • Ex: Tilley Hats & Children's Swimwear
  4. DO participate in outdoor activities before 10 am or after 4 pm.
  5. DO take a Vitamin D supplement if you are low in Vitamin D.
  6. DO get a spray tan if you want to have a golden glow.

DON'T

  1. DON'T use tanning beds. They increase your risk of developing melanoma.
  2. DON'T lay out in the sun; even if only for a short amount of time. It leads to more wrinkles and skin cancer.
  3. DON'T treat acne with sunlamps. It can help temporarily, but causes damage and cancer.
  4. DON'T believe what you read on the Internet about Vitamin D deficiency and that tanning beds help. Beds are close to 100% UVA rays, not UVB rays
    which help with Vitamin D. UVA rays also penetrate more deeply into
    the skin and cause cancer and wrinkles.

Contact Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology by calling us today at (877) 410-3027 to schedule a skin examination with one of our board-certified dermatologists and to learn more about protecting your skin from the sun.



Understanding Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss

Have you ever wondered what exactly it is that causes us to become larger when we gain weight? Fat, yes, but how does that work? Do we have more fat when we gain weight and less when we're trim? Well, yes and no. Weight loss and fat reduction are two different things. When you have a procedure such as Coolsculpting in Chicago, for example, you're having fat reduction. When you lose weight through diet and exercise, that's all it is: weight loss.

What Happens During Weight Loss
Each human body has a set number of fat cells. You do not grow any additional cells, nor do you naturally lose any. What happens when you gain weight is that your existing fat cells expand and become larger. They aren't multiplying, just growing.

When you lose weight, the same fat cells shrink as you'd expect. That's what makes it possible to have such large fluctuations in weight and size throughout a lifetime—the changing size of your fat cells. It looks like you have more flesh when you're heavier, but the truth is that your flesh simply has more volume.

What Happens During Fat Reduction
With fat reduction procedures such as liposuction or CoolSculpting, fat cells are actually removed from your body. If the cells do not exist, they cannot fluctuate in size, making it easier to maintain your desired size and shape. That doesn't mean that you can never become larger again, however. Your body needs some fat cells in order to stay healthy, and those that remain are still capable of growing and shrinking. Think of CoolSculpting as a powerful step in getting the shape you want; proper diet and exercise are still needed to maintain it.

If you're interested in learning more about CoolSculpting in Chicago and what it can do for you, contact us at Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology. We provide a full range of medical and cosmetic procedures, both surgical and non-surgical to help you be healthy and look your best.
