Sunscreen: Use this medication under the advice and supervision of your physician. This suppresses the 'dermal elements'--oil glands, etc. In doing so, it can interfere with healing of the skin. Do not undergo deep laser treatments or allow the skin to be injured (sunburn) while undergoing treatment. One should do well with this treatment if one follows their physician's advice and protects their skin.
