What to Expect
Day 1-3: Your skin will feel dry, tight and sensitive to the touch (comparable to a sunburn.) Treat skin gently by washing it with a gentle cleanser & cool water, using hands only to pat dry; making sure to wait at least 4 hours post treatment. Swelling can last 2-4 days depending on how aggressive of a treatment you received. Make sure to plan your social calendar accordingly!
Day 2-7: You will notice skin dryness and flaking & peeling may start 3-5 days after treatment. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. Do not pick, scratch, or scrub at treated skin! Allow old skin to flake off naturally and keep moisturized at all times!
Day 5-7: You may restart your regular skin care products and Retin-A once your skin is no longer irritated. For optimal results, we recommend for a repeat treatment in 4-6 weeks and a series of 3 treatments depending on your personalized care plan.
