I have been looking into this treatment for some time now. One minute I am going to do it, then I change my mind. I am 99% sure I am going ahead.
Thinking of getting treated around June before I go on holiday early July. Has anybody been on holiday just after treatment or in between treatments?
Would people recommend I get it done before or wait until I return. Thanks30/04/2014 at 10:16 am #29597Baldy01Participant
Personally i’d leave it until you get back.
On my treatment after sheet it advised that You can’t go in the swimming pool or sunbathe for a few weeks after the treatment, so its not worth the risk in my opinion.30/04/2014 at 10:44 am #29598
Thanks for the reply Baldy01.
I understand what you are saying. Is it the chlorine thing with the pool? What about swimming in the sea or is it water in general?
Would wearing a hat or applying sunscreen in those early weeks help?
Sorry for so many questions.30/04/2014 at 2:05 pm #29603markybParticipant
The treatments are
1st treatment followed by 2nd around 7 to. 19 days later
Then 3rd treatment about a month after 2nd
After each treatment you can’t
wash /moisture /shave for at least 4 days
I reckon a week after 2 nd you should be ok to go away
But best to keep head covered in the sun just in case if burning
I’d be tempted not to do a lot if sun exposure till after last treatment
As regards to swimming pools
I gave read somewhere on how long you have to leave it , but can’t remember how long it was
Had my 3 rd almost a month ago
And may need a 4 th depending on how my bad skin is holding ink
But I’m glad I’m not getting it done in the height of summer30/04/2014 at 2:06 pm #29605markybParticipant
Above should have said 7 to 10 days not 1901/05/2014 at 1:51 pm #29617
Thanks for the detailed answer markyb.01/05/2014 at 10:58 pm #29634
After reading through your answers and having a phone chat with Skalp I have decided to leave the treatment until I come back off my holidays. I can then concentrate on making sure that I have the right conditions to do this properly and get the best result.02/05/2014 at 11:20 am #29638shed7Participant
Sunny I think you have made the right call.
