PREPARATION FOR PIXEL SKIN RESURFACING
Avoid UV Exposure (Sun, Sunbeds) - four weeks prior and after treatment.
No fake tan on area being treated
Its advisable to wear as little make up as possible prior to treatment, we will always perform a full cleanse prior to the session.
AFTER CARE FOR PIXEL SKIN RESURFACING
After your Laser treatment, it is very common for the area to feel warm. The area will have Erythema (redness). This will last a few hours but we do have anti inflammatory mineral make up for the face to hide any redness.
Immediately After Treatment:-
It is normal for the treated area to feel hot and tingly (like a sunburn). The microscopic pixel marks may also be visible on close inspection of the skin.
Normal Post Treatment Reactions:-
Sunburn like heat and sensation in skin
Redness and slight swelling for 2-4 days
Peeling within 4-6 days
In some cases post treatment reactions may persist for a longer period. If this occurs, continue with aftercare instructions until the skin has settled.
Clients should see instant results, but it takes 3-6 months for the full effects to be seen.
For the next 24-48 hours:
Avoid all heat treatments such as:
Excessive exercise etc
Do not touch, pick or scratch the area.
Avoid all perfumed soaps and cream
For two weeks:
Use mild cleanser
For four weeks after:
Avoid UV exposure and apply SPF 30+
