    Permanent lines on face after tanning salon

    Hi,

    I just wanted to share an experience of a friend of mine after she had been going to a tanning salon for a couple of months.

    She had been going to a tanning booth on a weekly basis(I believe sitting in the strongest UV booth they had) for two months. She would use the strongest UV ray booth because she claimed the lesser UV booths did not tan her enough. She has a very light olive/mediterranean complexion.

    To make a long story short, after 2 months in the tanning salon, this past June she goes out and falls asleep on the beach for a whole day. She woke up with her face purple red burnt and swollen. She said she had been out in the sun all day many times and this never happened before. SHe feels it's from the tanning booth tanning her skin and then her being exposed to natural sunlight.

    So after her skin peeled off on her face like 3 layers(and this is from June so figure it;s been over 3 months now) the skin underneath it that came out under the burnt layers is much more leathery, and she claims she has permanent lines now between her eyebrows that were not there before along with a couple of moles that appeared. She use to have beautiful skin but now it really looks prematurely aged.

    My question is -- has anyone else experienced anything like this and if so does it just takes time(like many months) for the skin to rejuvinate or was the damage permanent. A dermatolgist said that lines take many years to devlop but in her case it looks like her whole skin texture changed for the worse.

    Thank you

    Suggest she go to a dermatologist and make an appointment ASAP.

    I don't think lines is the major concern here.

    I hope she and you have learned something from her experience.

    I have quite a few friends who use tanning beds and it has ruined their skin. My best friend use to go tanning every other week and now her skin is completely damaged. Of course, once you start tanning all the time, the only way to keep your skin from showing damage( wrinkles, lines, hyper pigmented areas, freckles) is to keep it tan. Once you damage your skin, it's extremely difficult to reverse. The best thing that your friend can do is have a dermatologist do a chemical peel and then avoid the sun!
