• Notify your practitioner of any medications you have used within the last 6 months.  


  • Discontinue use of medications containing AHA’s, retinoids, exfoliants, etc 1 week prior to treatment.


  • Notify your practitioner if you have a history of perioral herpes.


Immediately Before Treatment

  • Remove any make-up and/or lotions and make sure that the skin is dry in the area to be treated.



  • You may return to your normal daily activities immediately after your treatments.  


  • Avoid extended sun exposure or tanning for at least 1-week post treatment.  


  • Use of a broad spectrum UVA/UVB minimum of SPF 30 is very important after receiving any laser treatment.   Remember to reapply throughout the day.


  • Discontinue any chemical peels or exfoliating agents as the skin may become more sensitive after the treatment.


  • Keep the area well moisturized as dryness may occur – an oil free lotion is preferred to help the treatment be as effective as possible.


  • To achieve the best results, complete the full treatment schedule at the intervals recommended by your laser practitioner.
