Laser CO2 Resurfacing Pre & Post Care Instructions
Your Journey to Exceptional Outcomes Begins with Proper Care
For optimal treatment results, kindly review our Pre & Post Care Guidelines. Explore our recommendations to maximize the benefits of your treatment.
Before undergoing the treatment, there are several things that you can do to prepare your skin for the procedure. To ensure the best possible results and reduce the risk of complications, we recommend following these guidelines:
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.
- Do not use any topical creams or lotions containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or retinoids for at least 1 week prior to treatment. These products can irritate the skin.
- Stop using any medications that may increase the risk of bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or blood thinners, for at least 2 weeks prior to treatment.
- Inform your doctor if you have a history of cold sores or herpes. This may require antiviral medication before treatment, which can help to prevent outbreaks and reduce the risk of complications.
- Arrive for treatment with a clean, makeup-free and skincare-face.
After the treatment, it is important to take care of your skin to ensure that it heals properly and to reduce the risk of complications. Please follow these tips for your skin after the treatment:
- Apply a thin layer of ointment to the treated area for the first few days to promote healing and prevent scabbing. This will help to keep the skin moisturized and reduce the risk of scarring.
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 4 weeks after treatment. This will help to prevent any damage to the skin and reduce the risk of complications.
- Do not use any topical creams or lotions containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or retinoids for at least 1 week after treatment. These products can irritate the skin and make it more sensitive to the treatment.
- Do not pick at any scabs that may form, as this can increase the risk of infection and scarring.
