Aftercare

Aftercare product is included in all prices. Extra products are available for purchase.

Following good and consistent aftercare will help ensure the best outcome for your treatment! Be patient, be diligent in your aftercare!  

*Please remember it takes a full 8-10 weeks to see your final result. Once dots shed, the skin may appear healed or slightly pinkish, but that is just the beginning as the skin underneath does its work. It takes four weeks for collagen and elastin production to BEGIN! Be patient!

  • Always keep the area clean to avoid infections until the carbon crusts (scabs) have formed and exfoliated on their own.  Removing the scabs prematurely will result in scarring.

  • Ice the treated area (use a clean cloth/paper towel to cover the ice pack each use) alternating 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off for up to 1 hour for the first 2 days.

  • Avoid saturating area in water for the first 48 hours

  • Avoid touching the treated area

  • Avoid direct sun light

  • Gently apply the aftercare gel (with clean hands or a clean cotton swab) to the treated area as needed to help relieve itching each day until your scabs fall off on their own.

  • Exposure and tanning beds to the treated area is not advised - Once the scabbing process is complete, always apply broad spectrum SPF to the area for a minimum of 3 months after your last treatment.  This skin is still healing and can easily become damaged by any UV rays and may cause hyperpigmentation and/or premature aging.

    IMPORTANT! Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds to the treated area- Once the scabbing process is complete, always apply broad-spectrum SPF to the area for a minimum of 3 months after your last treatment. This skin is still healing and can easily become damaged by any UV rays and may cause hyperpigmentation and/or premature aging.     


  • Do NOT apply any home remedies, plasters (liquid bandaid), or ointments other than what is provided to you.  This may delay the intended healing process and or cause infection.

  • Do not workout, swim, hot tub or steam bath until scabs have exfoliated.

  • BE PATIENT WITH THE HEALING PROCESS AND ALLOW YOURSELF TIME TO REST & HEAL.


**Swelling is to be expected after this type of treatment. Because the area will be recovering from a deliberately controlled wound. Therefore the natural side effect is swelling. There are steps to minimize swelling (ice and antihistamines), but swelling cannot be avoided. You can’t prevent or cure the swelling- it is a response to trauma. The swelling will subside in a matter of days.
