Post-Treatment

 

After IPL/laser treatment, it is common for the area to feel slightly warm. Some clients experience local swelling and mild tenderness.These symptoms may appear immediately or a few days after treatment. The use of 100% Aloe Vera gel is recommended directly after treatment.

For 1 to 4 weeks after treatment you should avoid exposure to UV light (i.e. sunbeds and sunbathing). A high SPF should be applied when outside. Excessive exposure can cause hypo or hyper pigmentation of the skin.

For the next 24 to 48 hours avoid all heat treatments such as: steam rooms, hot baths or showers, saunas and excessive exercise. 

For the next 24-48 hours avoid the use of abrasive or exfoliating sponges. Apply recommended moisturizer at least twice daily.

• Avoid products containing alpha-hydroxy acids, unless advised by your treatment provider.

• Do not peel, pick, scratch or scrape the skin, or any loose skin resulting from the treatment, this must come of in its own time with no assistance, ignoring this advice can lead to scarring.

• Do not wax facial hair for 2 weeks post peel.

• Delay the use of make-up for 24-48 hours. (If you must we recommend mineral makeup)

• Adverse reactions to chemical peels are rare but can include peeling, redness, scabbing, infection, recurrence of cold sores and prolonged sensitivity to wind and sun.

 

If you find the area treated is sensitive, continue abiding by the above list for another week.

 

 

Avoid all perfumed creams, soaps and lotions on the treatment area.
