Does tattooed skin need special protection?

It is a good idea to protect a fresh tattoo with clothing so that the sunscreen does not get through the skin of the skin caused by the tattoo to irritate the skin.

Does acid peeling expose pigment spots?

Any irritating skin treatment triggers an inflammatory reaction, making the skin more susceptible to post-inflammatory pigmentation. It appears as darker areas on the skin. If you are prone to liver problems, you should use sunscreen carefully or otherwise protect yourself.

When to go to the doctor?

Examinations should be performed if the skin has a wound that does not heal or grows, changes shape or color. Benign skin changes, such as sebaceous eyelids, also increase. If you are not sure what these are, it is better to show them to a dermatologist.
