The Skin Center Medical Spa to offer Anthelios SX, by LaRoche-Posay, this Fall.

Proper sun protection is vital to keeping skin healthy and youthful looking. No other external factor causes more damage to the skin than sun exposure. Now, a new type of sun protection product call Anthelios SX will be making its way to the U.S. market and The Skin Center Medical Spa early this fall. Anthelios SX effectively blocks the harmful short UVA waves of the sun and provides long-term broad-spectrum sun protection.

According to the manufacturer, LaRoche-Posay, Mexoryl™ SX, the active ingredient in Anthelios SX, is the first and only sun protection ingredient that effectively protects the skin from the harmful short UVA waves of the sun, which accounts for up to 95% of the UV radiation that reaches the Earth’s surface. What makes this product superior to other sun protection products is that the Mexoryl™ SX does not degrade when exposed to the sun for long periods of time, giving consumers added protection under the sun.

“Sun exposure is the leading cause of premature aging,” said Dominic Brandy, M.D., founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spas in Pennsylvania and Ohio. “Wrinkles, sun spots and pigmentation problems are the direct result of too much time in the sun. Any product that can limit the amount of exposure to both UVA and UVB rays should be used daily to prevent further sun damage. Once this product is available in the U.S., we will certainly encourage all but our most sensitive patients to try it.”

The first product containing Mexoryl™ SX to be sold in the U.S. market will be Anthelios SX, a daily moisturizing cream with sunscreen that is distributed by LaRoche-Posay. Consumers can purchase Anthelios SX this Fall at The Skin Center Medical Spa.
