How soon can you wear makeup after laser?

Recommended Posts

Hey, i'm 20 years old female, with acne scarring left on my skin, i still get the few odd spots but very rarely and only when i eat sweets/chocolate, so im quite aware of what causes it and how to avoid it! but sometimes temptations to great haha :P

Anyway, i've finally had the courage to go to the docs wearing no foundation, been meaning to do it

since i've been around 17 but it's rather scary shhhh! i have an appointment with a dermatologist in May

Which i'm now really nervous for!

My friend told me you can't wear makeup for atleast 6months after the laser surgery? :S]

So i was thinking of asking for micro-dermabrasion instead?

What sort of makeup should you wear after it also?

I find mineral makeup actually brings me out :S

the only one that doesn't is estel lauder

anyway i'll upload some photos of my scarring /shudder

Anyone reccommend what they think i'd be best suited for, laser or micro?

:pray::pray:

I know the files are big i dunno how to make them smaller >.<

my apologies!

Hi hun

I don't see any pitted scarring so I dont understand why you would need the laser. I really think you would further damage your skin. Your overall skin tone is great besides the odd spots here and there but that can be fixed.

I think your better off using topicals for your red spots rather than a laser.

Hey thankyou for replying and

The red marks are all the scarring, i've had them from being around 15 and i'm now 20
