Day of Treatment: 4-5 hours after procedure clients may experience minor discomfort compared to a sun burn. This discomfort typically lasts for 2-3 hours. When you arrive home, please apply your first layer of Cicalfate.
Day 2 and 3: TEXT US A PICTURE (409-454-9502). Drink lots of fluid. Do NOT exercise, no yoga or stretching. Do not clean house, go outside, or get anything in or on your skin. NO SUN!
Cicalfate 2X today.
Saline Towelettes 2-3X or Thermal Spray as much as you like.
If you must wear make-up (Avene in box above is recommended), always gently cleanse with Cetaphil as soon as you get home and then apply your Cicalfate. Note: Wearing make-up too soon may irritate skin and slow healing process.
DAY 4: Take a steamy shower. Soak a textured cloth in hot water. Lay cloth on skin for a few minutes. Rinse and repeat a few times. NO SCRUNCHING OR PRESSURE. After you dry off, apply cicalfate.
Day 5 On: You can begin to GENTLY exfoliate by adding medium pressure when applying your hot-water-soaked-cloth in your next shower. After drying face, you should start to feel smooth patches (and still some rough patches). This process may take another week.
After Day 7: You should wear 25+ spf sunscreen (we recommend Avene Foundation in box above, includes spf) for the next month whenever exposed to any sun. You may continue to be slightly red for a few months. Don't worry -- red means the skin is still healing. **Worsening red with itching may indicate a skin infection -- call for antibiotics if you have this.
Do NOT exfoliate before instructed or you can irritate the skin and greatly slow your healing down if you start too soon. WAIT, WAIT, WAIT for instructions to begin exfoliation. Take this ONE DAY AT A TIME!
