Laser

Skin Resurfacing

1540 Non-Ablative Laser Post-Treatment Instructions

  • Application of cool gel packs and appropriate topical creams immediately following treatment can help alleviate post treatment itchiness and stinging that may occur. 

  • Edema, and sometimes blanching, is expected immediately post-treatment and generally resolves within 24-48 hours. It may last up to 3-5 days for some clients.

  • Those being treated may experience significant redness, broken capillaries and bronzing in the treatment area for approximately 1-3 days after treatment. This may persist in a mild form for several weeks particularly in areas other than the face. 

  • Following a more aggressive treatment, it may be helpful to use some occlusive ointment on the skin after treatment during the healing process to help minimize trans-epidermal water loss which may result in significant desquamation or crusting. 

  • To help remove debris and bronzing of skin that can appear 1 to 4 days after treatment, soak treated areas for 5-15 minutes with gauze or wash cloth wet with water, then gently remove debris. Do not pick at or scrub the treat areas. 

  • Gentle cleansing and use of non-irritating cosmetics are permitted after treatment. It is suggested that retinoids be discontinued 1-2 weeks prior to the initial treatment and throughout the course of treatment. The use of retinoids during the treatment course may result in undesirable side effects and prolonged healing. 

  • Those prone to acne outbreaks should avoid heavy make-up or moisturizers for 24 hours post treatment. 

  • As healing occurs, clients should avoid injury and sun exposure for at least two weeks following treatment. It is highly recommended that clients use sunscreen with SPF 45 or higher containing UVA/UVB protection between treatments, along with a sun blocker such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

  • Those being treated should continue to use SPF 45 or higher up to 6 months following final treatment whenever they are outside. 

  • Once the treatment area has healed, some itching or dryness may occur. This will gradually clear. The use of non-irritating moisturizers may provide some relief. 

  • Please contact the treatment provider if there are any issues or concerns following the treatment. 

  • NOTE: After treating striae (stretch marks) with the 1540 Laser Handpiece, it is recommended to avoid tight-fitting clothes around the treated areas for three (3) months after the last laser treatment.

An oral, over- the-counter anti-inflammatory (ibuprofen such as Advil) or an analgesic (acetaminophen such as Tylenol) may be taken to reduce discomfort. Use medicine according to manufacturer’s recommendations.

  • Avoid intense activity or any stress to the puncture site for 24 hours after the treatment Please note that even though our IV drip treatments are clinically tested, stability tested and its ingredients are premium and safe, everyone is unique so you could experience the effects of the treatment differently. Unfortunately, we are not able to foresee if your body particularly will have a different reaction. This should not be a cause of concern unless you experience an adverse reaction, which can occur if any of the ingredients on the IV formula interact unexpectedly with any residues in your body, or if there are existing or potential medical conditions that we are unaware of. 

  • Seek immediate medical assistance if:
    - The bleeding from the puncture area hasn’t stopped after 30 minutes
