You may have minimal redness for 1-12 hours. Due to the nature of these treatments, you may experience light flaking for a couple of days. Your skin may feel tight and dry. Apply moisturizer as frequently as needed.
Unless recommended by your esthetician, do not apply topical medications, AHA or BHA products to the area for 5-7 days after your treatment, as they may be irritating.
It is recommended that you do not apply makeup the day of your treatment. It is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight. Makeup can be applied if necessary.
Follow your appropriate home care regimen as directed by your technician. Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat for at least 7 days (getting overheated internally can cause hyperpigmentation). Always use sunscreen/sunblock for your protection. Do not pick or pull at any loose skin, as this can cause hyperpigmentation or scarring.
Do not have electrolysis, use chemical depilatories or wax the treated area for at least 7 days.
