Tanning after surgery?

2 posts in this topic

Just wondering how long I need to wait after surgery till I can hit up the tanning beds again?

I've heard some places, 6 months to a year. Other people say as long as you cover your stomach or use SPF on your incisions it doesn't matter... what's the truth?

Tanning beds are a really a bad idea. So is spending time roasting yourself at the beach or lake. Why expose yourself to UV light and increase your chance of skin cancer? Why age your skin prematurely? If you want to have a tan appearance, you can buy safe skin products that will do the trick.

Please see this public information web site from the American Academy of Dermatology: Darker Side of Tanning
