Post Treatment:

 

Keep in mind that you will experience some crusting and epidermal damage, which resolves within 1-4 week period. 

  • Edema, and sometimes blanching, is expected immediately post-treatment and generally resolves within 24-48 hours. It may last up to 3-5 days in some clients.

  • Gentle cleansing and use of non-irritating cosmetics are permitted after treatment. It is suggested that retinoids be discontinued 1-2 weeks prior to the initial treatment and throughout the course of treatment. The use of retinoids during the treatment course may result in undesirable side effects and prolonged healing.

  • Those prone to acne and breakouts should avoid heavy makeup or moisturizers for 24 hours post treatment.

  • As healing occurs, clients should avoid injury and sun exposure for at least two weeks following treatments. It is highly recommended that clients use a sunscreen with SPF 45 or higher containing UVA/UVB protection between treatments, along with a sun blocker such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

  • Those being treated should continue to use SPF 45 or higher up to 6 months following final treatment whenever they are outside.

  • Once the treatment area has healed, some itching or dryness may occur. This will gradually clear. The use of non-irritating moisturizers may provide some relief.
