AFTERCARE

For optimum results please follow your aftercare instructions carefully.

Congratulations on your dermaplaning treatment!

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that has removed dead skin cells and vellous hair from the surface of your skin.

Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser and warm, not hot, water. Splash water on face. Do not use abrasive wash cloths, Clarisonic,or hot shower spray for the first 24-48 hours. Do not use cleansers, serums or spot treatments containing salicylic acid or Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) for 5 days following treatment.

Tone: Hydrating and brightening toners applied with a cotton round will penetrate deeper into the skin. If you are sensitive,try all products on a small area before applying full face.

Serums: Active ingredients in serums penetrate much better now, so you’ll see quicker results. Ask your esthetician about the right serums for your skin. Please do not use Retin-A, 5 days pre and post dermaplaning. For darker skin tones: use a brightening serum to reduce the risk of excess pigment production.

Moisturizer: Choose a hydrating moisturizer and apply twice daily. It’s common for skin to feel tight but is dewy to the touch.

SPF: Your skin is more vulnerable to UV rays after exfoliation. SPF is essential to protect your skin - even on cloudy days when UVA (aging) rays are present.

Makeup: Makeup can irritate skin after dermaplaning. Bacteria, alcohols, colorants and fragrance are all irritants that can cause contact dermatitis. Be sure to clean your makeup brushes and apply clean (new) makeup to minimize risks.

DO: Avoid sun exposure as much as possible. If you must be in the sun, apply and reapply SPF 30+ every 2 hours, wear a hat and sunglasses and seek shade.

DO: Delay exposure to excessive heat, heavy workouts, steam rooms and saunas for 24-48 hours post treatment.

DO: Wait 7 days before facial waxing. Waxing may be done prior to dermaplaning.

DO: Change your pillowcase and clean all makeup brushes.

DO: Schedule your appointments 4 weeks apart to optimize results.

Congratulations on your microneedling treatment! 

The purpose of Microneedling is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer and more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat scaring, wrinkles and large pores. After the treatment your skin will be red, a similar appearance to moderate sunburn. You may experience tightness and mild sensitivity which will diminish after a few hours following the treatment.

Hyaluronic Acid: Is a MUST after needling, this can be applied every 30 minutes or whenever your skin feels warm or hot. As you may experience some dryness after needling, hyaluronic acid will retain the moisture in your skin and speed up the healing process.

Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water. Splash water on face. Do not use abrasive wash cloths, Clarisonic or hot shower water for 24-48 hours. Do not use cleansers, serums or spot treatments containing salicylic acid or Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) for 5 days following treatment. Do not use exfoliating products for at least 3 days.

Serums: Active ingredients in serums penetrate much better now, so you’ll see quicker results. Ask your esthetician about the right serums for your skin. Please do not use Retin-A or chemical peels 2 weeks prior to treatment.

Moisturizer: Choose a hydrating moisturiser and apply twice daily. It’s common for skin to feel tight but is dewy to the touch.

SPF: Your skin is more vulnerable to UV rays after needling. SPF is essential to protect your skin - even on cloudy days when UVA (aging) rays are present. Using a SPF 30+ is essential. Reapply SPF 30+ every 2 hours, wear a hat and sunglasses and seek shade.

Makeup: Makeup can irritate skin after microneedling. Bacteria, alcohols, colorants and fragrance are all irritants that can cause contact dermatitis. Be sure to clean your makeup brushes and apply clean (new) makeup to minimise risks. 

DO: Change your pillowcase and clean all makeup brushes.

DO: Delay exposure to excessive heat, heavy workouts, steam rooms and saunas for 24-48 hours post treatment or until redness is gone.

DO: Expect redness for up to 3 days. Pinpoint bleeding may occur directly after treatment depending on the intensity of the needling and the reaction of your skin. 

DO: Avoid waxing, facials, botox, injectable fillers or any other skin care treatment two weeks after treatment.

DO: Schedule your appointments 4 weeks apart to optimise results.
