PRE CARE:

  • Avoid unprotected UV (sun) exposure for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to treatment.

  • Wear broad spectrum SPF 30+ (UVA/UVB) daily.

  • The use of skincare products including a gentle cleanser, hydrating serum & gentle moisturiser will help prepare the skin for treatments & enhance results.

  • Discontinue using prescription vitamin A or high strength over the counter retinol 5 days before your treatment unless advised otherwise. Roaccutane must be discontinued for 6months before skin treatments.

  • If you have a history of herpes simplex or cold sores, you may wish to take anti-viral medications prior to treatments, to prevent an onset.

  • Areas treated with muscle relaxants or dermal fillers must be completely healed or wait 2weeks before any skin treatments can be performed.

 

POST CARE: 

  • Do not exfoliate, use moisturisers or lotions, which are highly perfumed, or contain active ingredients such as retinol, glycolic acids & vitamin C, for 48-72hrs .

  • Avoid exercise, excessive sweating, hot showers, spas, saunas & pools for at least 24-48 hours post treatment.

  • Do not pick or pull at any areas of crusting, as this may increase your chances of infection, resulting in a scar.

  • Do not have waxing done or anything that may cause trauma to the skin during the healing phase.

  • Wear broad spectrum SPF 30+ (UVA/UVB) daily & avoid unprotected UV exposure.

  • The inflammatory reaction & mild erythema of the skin is extremely short & fade significantly within an hour, but may last 12-24hours. In order to reduce visible redness we recommend hyaluronic acid 24hours after the procedure.

  • The use of mineral make up can be used after procedure. After 2 hours the skin closes.

  • Clients can not wash their face or apply creams for a day, only the aftercare products that we will give you.
