Skin tightening treatment- Aftercare

Introduction

The laser is used to cause small burns on the surface of the skin. The heat from these burns causes collagen fibres in the deep layers of your skin to contract and tighten up. This stimulates new collagen production, which increases elasticity and leaves you with smoother, tighter skin! The skin tightening treatment is a procedure that uses a laser to tighten the skin. 

Do not apply any cream or lotion on the skin for 24-48 hours.

You should not apply any cream or lotion on your skin for the first 24-48 hours after the tightening treatment. It is important to follow these instructions because the skin may be sensitive and prone to irritation. You are advised not to apply any makeup or sunscreen to your treated areas during this time. If you are going outside in daylight, wear a hat and sunglasses instead of sunscreen unless instructed otherwise by the office staff.

Do not expose the treated area to the sun for 72 hours after the treatment. If you have to go out, wear a sunblock lotion.

  • Wear long sleeves and pants when possible, but if you must be in direct contact with others, try to find loose-fitting clothing so as not to cause any irritation or chafe on your skin.
  • Wear sunglasses instead of regular eyeglasses during this time period as well.
  • Applying makeup will be impossible during this first week because it will only irritate your skin further; however, you can continue wearing makeup if it has already been applied before your procedure took place (such as mascara). Oil-based products should be avoided at all costs due to their ability to clog pores and cause acne breakouts, in addition to being very difficult for anyone with sensitive skin like yours right now!

For the first 72 hours, do not rub or itch the treated area. Don’t use any harsh soaps or cleansers on the treated skin.
