Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, affecting millions of Americans annually. One in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer over their lifetime. We want to help stop this growing trend. All season, Round Rock Express fans, staff, and players will have free access to sunscreen throughout the ballpark. Our sunscreen can be found at Guest Services and the Fun Zone; including dispensers in all restrooms. Knowing that you have the protection against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, will make games carefree and enjoyable, as they should be!
Here are a simple few tips from the experts at Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute to keep you and your family sun safe:
• Apply sunscreen every two hours, and immediately after swimming or sweating.
• Add an extra layer of protection with sun-safe clothing, hats and UV protected sunglasses.
• If outdoors, always apply and reapply sunscreen. Even when it is cloudy, skin is still at risk of damage.
• Never put off your regular skin cancer screenings and perform regular self-checks at home between visits.
If you or a loved one is due for a skin cancer screening or see an area of concern between visits, please call 512.379.6090 or book an appointment with us online. Our friendly staff is here to answer your questions and provide professional care.
