HEALING GUIDELINES:

Immediately post treatment, you will experience heat, redness, and swelling. Most of this will resolve within 4-6 hours after the treatment.

You may experience swelling for 12-24 hours post treatment.

To reduce swelling:

  • Sleep with the treated area elevated
  • Ice area for up to 10 minutes per hour during the first 48 hours
  • Take an antihistamine daily; Zyrtec 10mg or Allegra 180mg
  • Avoid salt, sugars, and alcohol

DO NOT EXFOLIATE. Let peeling occur naturally as your skin heals.

Wait 2 days before strenuous exercise.

Wait 1 week before submerging the treated areas in pools or hot tubs.

Wait 2 weeks before sun exposure.

Wait 2 weeks before starting tretinoin, retinol or antioxidants serums with vitamin C.

If experiencing skin sensitivity after post-care kit runs out, use bland skincare products until skin returns to normal.
