Will I need to be out of the sun after the treatments?
Yes all scar treatment recovery is hindered by sun exposure. Since scar removal treatments are energy intense treatments they need to have no sun exposure for a minimum of 1 month after the treatment. For example if the scar is on the face, a zinc based sun block >50 spf would be needed to be applied minimum twice a day and hats or mask worn to protect the scar. The sun makes scars worse. If the treatment is on the belly, sun occluding clothing and swimsuits (please check the spf of your suit should be higher than 50) should be worn. Also remember t-shirts offer poor or no sun protection, they only have spf of 7 dry and 3 wet!
