Could juvederm cause an allergic reaction? I have very sensitive skin and have to be careful about the lotions I use, because a lot of them make my skin break out. What are the ingredients in juvederm? I want to make sure I don't have an allergic reaction
More probable: Yes, its prob the offending agent causing your problems, and the best way to find out is to stop, heal all areas, return to normal, and if you're game, use it again (if your reactions are mild). That's the best real world test. Juvederm can cause allergies in those with allergies to certain proteins, like bacterial proteins. ...Read more

I have a photo allergic reaction to sunscreen. I have tried sprays and lotions (all over the counter products). What do you recommend I use?
I have a rash all over my body from an allergic reaction to an antibiotic I was taking, can I still lay in a tanning bed?
Take a break!: I would not advise it at this time as your body is in the midst of a battle against the antibiotic. Your immune system is on high alert and the UV lights may cause the rash to increase. Secondly, much as our culture loves tan skin as a sign of good health it's an incredible health hazard - leads to premature skin aging, wrinkles and sometimes cancer. http://www. Cdc.

Why?: There is no good substitute. If you are having problems with one look for a paraben free product. Would not expose oneself to too much sun without any protection.

Sure: I have a Jergins lotion I use for this. Give you a nice tanned look you want, but gradually, while moisturizing your skin. Also, anything that will keep you from wanting to get in the sun for a real tan is a good thing! ...Read more
Tanning: Self tanners and airbrushing (depending on the products used) are considerably more safe than using a tanning bed/booth - and the results can look pretty good as well. Keep in mind that using this form of tanning does not reduce your chances of getting burned or incurring damage to your skin from the actual sun. You should always use an spf to protect your skin when out in the sun. ...Read more

Very safe.: Self tanning lotions are very safe. They are simply staining the top-most layers of skin a brown color. I recommend my patients use self-tanners over using tanning beds or external tanning to get color. If your skin is getting darker from sun exposure, it is a pathogenic response to sun, and means your skin cells are trying to protect their dna by producing melanin. This is never good. ...Read more
I've been going to the tanning bed, once a week and my skin startin to dry out and peel. Lotion doesn't help. Why is this happening?
Medium-well: Possibly you are over-doing the voluntary self-baking. Keep in mind that your skin tells you the limits of your short term tolerance. You need to take a break from the tanning bed, moisturize--possibly more than once daily--and consider the long-term skin cancer risk from excess exposure to uv radiation. ...Read more
