Your Skin: Your First Line of Defense

Your skin is one of the most durable and hard-working parts of your body. It protects your other organs from disease and injury and is able to regenerate itself in a way few other parts of your body can.

But as tough as it is, your skin requires a lot of care. UVA’s doctors are experts in treating skin diseases, and in short-term and preventive care that will help keep your skin healthy and strong.
