Is there any procedure to get a more overall clearer body skin? To make it glow and reduce scars and make it all an even color tone?

Is there any procedure to get a more overall  clearer body skin? To make it glow and reduce scars and make it all an even color tone?

Realistic goals: Nothing will make your skin "glow". If you have particular scars, a dermatologist or plastic surgeon might be able to help.

The key to being physically attractive is aerobic fitness and good self-care. Don't set fantasy goals. Cheers. ...Read more
