No ‘Botox’, Collagen injections or dermal fillers
For 72 Hours after treatment: Do not use AHA’s, Glycolics, or Retinol.
Do not use exfoliating products, the newly abraded skin is receptive to any products applied, so the use of any exfoliants after treatment can irritate the skin.

Use Tylenol only as needed for any soreness.
Avoid strenuous exercise or sweating for 24 hours.
Please note: Everyone is different and your results and recovery time may vary from person to person. If you have any questions or concerns following your treatment, please let us know.
AT AL TIMES DURING A COURSE OF TREATMENTS:
SPF 15 minimum must be applied and exposure to U.V should be avoided.
Regular moisturizer applications are vital to replenish moisture and prevent the skin becoming dry and peeling.
Products must be between pH 4.5 and 7 Skin care products that contain a high percentage of botanicals and essential oils are UNSUITABLE for use after microdermabrasion treatment as some of the ingredients contained may cause an allergic reaction. Should this occur, there is a real danger of both the therapist and client thinking that it is the treatment they are allergic to, where it is actually the ingredients within the skin care preparations. It is important that products are used that replace or add moisture back to the skin to stop the skin becoming dry or peeling.
Allow 14 days before performing microdermabrasion, including any touch up injections, to allow botox/fillers to settle.
Men should close shave the night before a treatment if the treatment is in the morning or in the morning if the treatment is in the afternoon.
A course of laser treatments cannot run concurrently with a course of microdermabrasion treatments. Please allow at least 2 weeks before commencing microdermabrasion after completing a course of Laser.
