Indoor tanning rates among women have dropped in the past few years – from 8.6% in 2010 to 6.5% in 2013 – according to new research published in JAMA Dermatology. However, an estimated 7.8 million women are still indoor tanners. That number should be zero. “If there’s one thing we wish all of our patients knew, it’s that there really is no safe tan. And if you are a tanner – whether indoors or out – you should be extra diligent about skin cancer screenings. The sooner we can catch a problem the better,” reminds Dr. Danny Groisser, The Derm Group’s founder and Medical Director.
