Pre-Treatment Instructions

Hydrate-we recommend that for 7 days pre-treatment, you moisutrize your skin in the morning, evening and drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to completely hydrate your skin and optimize your results.

You will be provided an antiviral prophylaxis prior to the procedure if you are undergoing a deeper peel to avoid an outbreak. The antiviral therapy should be started the day prior to your procedure and continued until the day after your procedure. Cold sores/fever blisters are an emergency and can lead to a complication.

Topical retinoid therapy should be discontinued 3-4 days prior to treatment.

Avoid any prolonged exposure to the sun for at least one month. If you must be in the sun, use a zinc oxide sunscreen of at least SPF 30+.

Depending on your skin type, you may be asked to use a topical bleaching agent for 6 weeks prior to your procedure.

The morning of your procedure, avoid using substances such as hairspray, gel, makeup, lotions, deodarants, self-tanning products and ointments in the intended area.


Post-Treatment Care

It is recommended you stay indoors for 48 hours following your procedure. During this time, there will be micro-openings in the skin which increases your risk for infection. Be sure to clean your glasses, cell phone, or any item that may come into contact with your skin with alcohol in order to disinfect it. This should be done each time you use the item. You should sleep on a clean pillow case or place a clean towel over your pillow each night to provide a clean surface. Always use a towel when drying your face. Avoid close contact with animals.

The treatment area should be cared for delicately until healing is complete. Care should be taken to prevent additional trauma to the treated area for the first 7 days following treatment.

Moist wound healing with soaks and Vaniply ointment is recommended for at least 3 days and up to 7-10 days in some circumstances. It is recommended you apply the ointment very frequently throughout the day to promote healing. The moment your skin feels dry, you should reapply the ointment.

Swelling WILL occur and peak at day 2-3 typically. Sleeping with your head somewhat elevated can be helpful.

Redness can last much longer, sometimes weeks, depending on the intensity of treatment.

The crusts will flake off over a period of 5 to 7 days. Do not pick or forcefully remove any of the crusts.

Avoid sun exposure to reduce changes of hyperpgimentation (darker pigmentation).
