The Science of Sun Protection
Part I

Dr. Neal Bhatia and Dr. Adam Friedman

 

Photoprotection works, plain and simple. Yet all too often we must defend good science, dispel unfounded myths, and offer our first born children to get our patients to utilize sunscreen the right way when this behavior directly and primarily benefits them. Why is this and how do we airdrop knowledge in a meaningful way?
In part one of this bonus two part podcast series dedicated to the science and psychology of sunscreen use, AAD Vice President Elect Neal Bhatia, MD joins host Adam Friedman, MD to slather on some practical approaches to communicating sunscreen science and real world use.

Visible light (400–700nm), which contributes to 45% of solar radiation, contributes to skin darkening and worsening of dyschromias, particularly in individuals with Fitzpatrick skin phototypes III and higher.

The pathogenesis of melasma is incompletely understood, which poses a challenge for disease management. Causative factors include genetics, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, cosmetics, pregnancy, hormonal therapy, phototoxic drugs, and various medications.

Currently, sunscreens provide limited protection against that spectrum. Due to their capabilities in absorbing, scattering, and reflecting visible light, topical products containing pigments and/or metal oxides can provide additional photoprotection.

In this study, the efficacy of two formulations containing iron oxide was evaluated in preventing visible light-induced pigmentation compared with a non-tinted mineral SPF 50+ sunscreen. Expert grading and colorimetry demonstrated that the iron-oxide containing formulations significantly protected against visible light-induced pigmentation compared to untreated skin or mineral SPF 50+ sunscreen in Fitzpatrick IV individuals.
