Okay!! . . . I know it is a big no-no, however, I’m trying to find out what could happen.
I am very light skinned and before I go away, I normally go to a suntan salon and tan for only a minimal amount of time each session, for about 2 weeks prior to leaving.
I have another laser treatment coming up. I only get my underarms and bikini lasered. I know I can’t tan prior to my appointment but I’m wondering what would happen if I suntan after the treatment (I let a week pass after the treatment before tanning). I’m not too concerned about the underarms since they don’t get tanned anyway, but I’m more concerned about the bikini area. I have thought about covering the area while using the tanning bed and also thought about putting a sunblock #50 on the area. However, my preference is to get an all over tan considering it would look a little strange in a bathing suit to have my legs tanned but my bikini area white.
So, even though they say not to tan, has anyone done it, and if so, what were the results.
