  • I heard tanning makes it more visible( shows the depth). Sunless tanner will mask them.

  • i have only a few on my chest and they get to be slightly more visible, but they aren't that visible in the first place, so i imagine if they are already very visibly than they would get worse.

  • Some moms say it makes them less visible. But the tradeoff of melanoma really isn't worth it.
