Absolutely depressed with it today's to the point where I didn't go to work.

I shaved with a razor as opposed to a beard trimmer yesterday for the first time in years and I remember why! My skin and pitted scarring look dreadful

I don't usually get spots anymore but I have today. I can't understand why my scarring looks so much worse when I don't have stubble. Maybe I'm just kidding myself

I got offered it at Salford Royal for free. I didn't go ahead with it but I am going to try and get the offer again as I regret not doing it

well, tanning after treatment definitely makes the scarring worse.  I also hear if you have a tan before treatment, then you would have to wait until the tan went away.  Just ask a professional.  It's not worth the risk.


Thanks, seems a little daft of my doctor to recommend having it done AFTER my holiday, what does he expect after 2 weeks abroad? I have another consultation before my treatment so I will ask then, for now... sun block!.

My deem said it can cause pigmentation loss if you have it with a tan. Loads of sites on the Internet say the same
