POST TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

EVERY DAY:.

  • STERILE HANDS when applying anything to your skin. 
  • Unlimited Coconut Oil. 
  • Take Vitamin C. Drink lots of fluid, eat your favorite foods.
  • Do NOT exercise, or exert yourself. Do not clean house. No pets, children, spouses, etc., near your skin please.
  • Don't go outside or get anything in or on your skin, except those listed above. NO SUN! 


DAY 1 (Day of Treatment): 

  • Minor discomfort: Mild burning typically lasts 2-6 hours.
  • Pin-point bleeding: Dot blood away with a Q-tip and distilled water--NO TAP WATER, or Q-tip and Coconut Oil. Do NOT DO THIS after Day 1.
  • Apply light coat of Avene Cicalphate 2X. Wait at least an hour before applying any Coconut Oil (or it will be messy).
  • Apply Coconut Oil to a small area (do a test patch, if no swelling or discomfort after 30 minutes apply to the rest of treated area).
  • Use as much Coconut Oil as you like throughout the rest of your recovery. 
  • Use as much Avene Spray as you like throughout the rest of recovery.
  • DO NOT take medication other than your prescribed medication.
  • Sleep elevated, if possible.


Day Two (day after treatment)


DAY 2: "Monster day". Don't worry! All skin is different. You may look worse or slightly better than the client shown above. 

DAY 3: You will be same or slightly improved from Day 2. 

DAY 4-5: 

  • 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. 

DAY 6 FORWARD: 

  • Add medium-pressure when applying your hot-water-soaked-cloth, in your shower, to gently begin exfoliation.
  • You should start to feel smooth patches (and still some rough patches). The slow crumbling off of dead-skin may take another week.
  • You can start wearing make-up again, if you have to. Use a natural soap or A gentle cleanser like Cetaphil to remove make-up as soon as possible.

Day 7 FORWARD: 

  • 25+ spf sunscreen (Aveeno Zinc suggested) for the next several months, whenever exposed to any sun. The less sun-exposure the better and definitely no boating or sunny vacations for as long as possible.
  • Take care of your BABY SKIN! 

You may continue to be slightly red for up to a month. Red means the skin is still healing. **Worsening red with itching may indicate a skin infection -- call for antibiotics if you do not already have them.

Do NOT exfoliate before instructed or you can irritate the skin and greatly slow your healing. WAIT, WAIT, WAIT for instructions to begin exfoliation. Take this ONE DAY AT A TIME! Thanks. :)
