Customer Question
I had Moh's surgery on...
I had Moh's surgery on my nose, on 11/17 and the scar is closed up and healing nicely. The plastic surgeon has ok'd my use of makeup on the scar to cover it up meanwhile.I would love to go go spray tanning to boost my confidence as I heal up but I don't want to impede the healing process of the scar. Would it be ok to do so now?

Thank you for your question. You are not even one month after surgery. You can use a little make up but I wouldn’t do anything else to the scar at this point. You do not want to do anything to interfere with healing so soon after surgery. I am available if you have more questions.
