Sunscreen Pill: Heliocare

Protect Your Skin: From the Inside

Heliocare Benefits

Advanced Dermatology is excited to announce we will be offering Heliocare. Heliocare is an advanced herbal supplement that is known to prevent skin damage and skin cancer. This remarkable supplement is in pill form and has been found to help facial pigmentation and melasma. Every year, more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed. Advanced Dermatology’s priority is to bring awareness to prevention.

How it works:

Heliocare being an oral form supplement works from the inside out, shielding your skin by acting as a sunscreen.  The study finds that this “sunscreen pill” being added to your daily routine of sun protection regime will boost your regular sun protection. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon. Heliocare will be instrumental in keeping you and your family’s skin healthy.

 Healthy skin:

Heliocare supplements work to gradually build up your body’s natural defense against damaging UV rays. Taking one supplement every day will help protect your skin against photoaging and other sun damage. Although Heliocare tablets aid in preventing sun damage, they do not replace sunscreen. Dr. Sherry Ingraham recommends applying a topical sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater to maximize your defense for the best results.

 Prevention is key:

Reapplying sunscreen is a necessary part of you skin’s health regimen. Now, with Heliocare you can add an additional barrier to your skin defenses. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. Proven to be safe and effective, Heliocare tablets are the only oral dietary supplements known to provide significant protection against photoaging. Each pill works by improving the body’s tolerance to UV rays, preventing sun-damaged skin. The key ingredient in these tablets is a potent extract with antioxidant properties. This extract helps the skin maintain its structure and immune response against sun damage. Heliocare also protects fragile elastin in the skin for a more youthful appearance.

Heliocare is now available at all of our Advanced Dermatology locations.
