Even though it's not blazing hot outside, area dermatologists say if you're not already doing it, now is a good time to remember to wear sunscreen.   Our Storm Tracker 16 Team says the sun's rays now are as strong as they are in late August which could lead to sunburns.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey got some ideas from Dr. Gregg Severs on simple ways to work sunscreen into your daily routine.  He shared his tips from his office at Lackawanna Valley Dermatology Associates.

We also learned this morning that the weather isn't the only thing heating up in our area.   As people get ready for swimsuit season, a procedure once huge in Hollywood is becoming more popular here at home.

Dr.  Severs explained "Cool Sculpting" to Newswatch 16.   For more information on the fat blasting procedure, click here!
