Explain how this works its shares says the -- camera heretic as standard photography image if you -- on the -- they'll make up you know make up in still beautiful complex and they have a scan.
And then a second -- into -- taken it's not seen here using cross polarization.
So what that does is it eliminates surface -- until lefties -- subsurface teach -- some of the changes beneath the skin that aren't visible with the naked eye.
They're likely to manifest over the next -- So what -- you -- when you -- season and they look it's very scary right there when you see the red there and then you see the ground with all the -- what you -- rights and that cost polarized image gets converted using software to -- -- and -- brown image.
And that's what's being -- -- in the middle image shows.

Yes except for you the one that's most striking and the dermatologist and thinking this would be the brown and it's right you licking your standard photography picture you don't see a lot of spots now on a day and you may think it may be the escape -- -- in the past.
We look at that brown imaging you see a lot of pavement and pigment is what your -- produce is in response to damage to protect itself.
So so is there any has the damage been done is it too late for Clinton and me -- everybody out there who was a son or super this right good news -- some of the damage is done but contrary to popular belief.
Only about 23% of -- total sun exposure is acquired in childhood I age eighteen.
We used to think it was 80% patients all the time come in and -- Well I've already done again as -- just -- mean I mean that's not she can modify your behavior need to protect yourself it's.
So you brought in some different different sunscreens and different things to use what can we do now so that I don't continue to look like the mummy.

For men out there -- -- we don't think you know you get up in the morning like he did put on maybe some sun screen and maybe some moisturizer something that has a fifteen minute or something not good enough is that good enough so you know really but I recommend is at thirty or higher SPS.
