At What Age Do You Get the Most Sun Damage

Episode #434 / Aug 30, 2012
In a prior DermTV episode, Dr. Schultz noted that 80% of your lifetime ultraviolet exposure and damage is done by the age of 18. Recently, a viewer responded to that claim by asking what's the point of sun protection beyond 18 if only marginal damage can occur. In this episode of DermTV, Dr. Schultz delves into his quote and whether or not sun protection is appropriate past 18 years of age.
