Tanning And Benzoyl Peroxide?

Recommended Posts

If you have fraxel laser surgery and then continue to tan and use BP does it make your scars come back?

It's still not a good idea, sir. You're potentially undoing all the treatments you are doing with the subcision and Re:store. New collagen formed from procedures that help treat acne scarring is weak. It take anywhere from six months to a year for that collagen to firm up and become as strong as normal collagen on your face, exposure to the sun, smoking, etc. anything that exacerbates the skin weakens that collagen.

I would NOT have sun exposure at all after a laser for at least 6 months. You are majorly risking hyper-pigmentation issues. And I'm not even one of those radical anti=sun OCD SPF people either. :)

You're just asking for melanoma.
