Tanning after Microdermabrasion

Hi 
Tanning beds can prove to be dangerous for the skin increasing the risks of Cancer. The bumps should go with time and gentle exfoliation. 
Hope this helps.

Nude Bumps

Hello,
These should resolve over time on their own.  Indoor tanning beds are very dangerous and unhealthy.  I understand the desire to have a nice bronze glow, please consider a self-tanner.  Making this switch will reduce your chances of premature aging as well as serious and possibly deadly skin cancers including melanoma, squamous cell cancer as well as basal cell cancer.  Regards.
