Post Treatment Instructions

  • Use a gentle cleanser and apply moisturizer at least twice daily for a minimum of 7 days post treatment.

  • Avoid sun exposure as much as possible for a minimum of 3 days post treatment. If you must be in the sun, apply SPF 30 or greater, reapply often, wear a wide brimmed hat, and seek shade when possible. Be careful of sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily to protect yourself from sun damage and skin cancer.

  • Avoid excessive heat 3 days post treatment, i.e. heavy workouts, hot yoga, steam rooms or saunas, etc.

  • Avoid chlorine in swimming pools and hot tubs for 24 hours.

  • Avoid facial waxing for 7 days.

  • Do not pick, scratch, or aggressively rub the treated area.

  • No scrubs, polishers, or aggressive brushes should be used on area for 7 to 14 days.

  • Do apply serums as absorption levels will be elevated!

  • You may experience slight peeling for the first few days. Slight windburn sensation and/or blotchiness are normal for the first few days. Skin care products may tingle or slightly burn for the first 2 days.

For best results, Dermaplaning Treatments are recommended every 3-7 weeks
