DO’s and DONT’s
Apply witch hazel gel to the treated area three times in the first 24-48 hours after your treatment to cool and keep the area clean.
Use Aloe Vera gel twice a day between treatments as this helps maintain moisture levels. We recommend you use Environ AVST creams.
Bathe your skin with a cold or iced saltwater solution regularly in the hours following your treatment. This will cool the skin, reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process. (Add half a teaspoon of salt to 1 cup (250ml) of boiling water and chill.)
Ensure you use sun protection daily to prevent sunlight interfering with the healing process. We recommend using Jane Iredale mineral make-up since it will not cause any irritation while working as an anti-inflammatory.
Avoid touching the area with your fingers because this may introduce bacteria to the treated area.
Refrain from picking any spots or crusts that may appear as it may slow the healing process down. If spots or crusts do appear, do not apply any make-up on them other than Jane Iredale mineral make-up.
Minimise expose to the sun or sunbeds for two weeks after your treatment as the treatment area is sensitive to UV exposure. If you are having an intensive course, avoid sun exposure on the area for the duration of your course. We recommend using strong sun protection and Jane Iredale mineral make-up to act as an effective sunblock.
Do not swim for 48 hours after your treatment because your skin is susceptible to water-borne infection.
