Scott Hangauer knows all too well the consequences of using indoor tanning beds.
He has the scar to prove it.
At age 27, Scott is a melanoma survivor. Delighted with his new bronze glow after returning from a Spring-break vacation in Florida, he started tanning at age 16 to maintain the look. Getting his driver’s license made sneaking away to the tanning salon even easier.
The son of a medical professional, Scott neglected to heed warnings from his parents about the health risks associated with the ultraviolet (UV) radiation emitted by tanning beds.
