    Sunbeds for acne

    Hey,
    I was thinking of using a sunbed for my acne. I was wondering how often a week and for a how long i should go.
    Cheers.

    the uv light kills the bacteria; have you tried antibiotics from your doc ?

    Re: Sunbeds for acne

    It won't as such kill the bacteria, just temporarily. So basically it'll dry up the skin and all the oil (sebum) and kill whats there. But acne is a long term thing so sunbeds will somewhat halt it but it will still come back if the sebum gland is still being stimulated (acne).

    Suggest you go to doctor mate.

    I've been on every anti-biotic apart from accutane. Also i have used many creams.
    Yes, i know. It also dries your skin out.

    That sounds as extreme as accutane.

    Have you tried Zynert?

    Did you have topical or oral treatment in the past?

    Not at all it's an anti-biotic consistining of a form of pennicilin. Basically I take this for 1 week and come off for 3 then back on. Typically body gets used to such anti-biotics if on for a long period of time so if you cycle it then you get a much better effect. Tablets I have dosed at 625mg I take 3 per day with 4 hours spaced out between each. Results seen after about 3 days, cleared up after 5.

    Fair enough, will my doc freely prescribe it? or do i need to get it off the internet?

    You can ask your doc for it but doubt he will give you it lol. It personally works for me, the only thing that works for me in terms of acne, I've tried everything apart from roaccutane. You can buy it off the net, try unitedpharmacies cheap there for four quid odd a pack. should be 21 in a pack.

    I don't find sunbeds really help the acne itself, but rather darken the skin so marks and red spots are less visible.

    I have found that the sun and UV does help my acne personally.
