HEALING GUIDELINES:

Your skin may be itchy, tender to touch, and hot for the first few days. Afterwards, it will be pink, dry and rough for 1 to 2 weeks post-treatment.

You will experience swelling for 48-72 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 (i.e. Zyrtec 10mg or Allegra 180mg)
  • Avoid salt, sugars, and alcohol

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

Wait 3 days before strenuous exercise.

Wait 4 days before wearing makeup over your sunscreen.

Wait 2 weeks before submerging the treated areas in pools or hot tubs.

Wait 4 weeks before sun exposure.

Wait 4 weeks before starting tretinoin, retinol or antioxidants serums with vitamin C.
