Your skin type will be assessed by the technician and a full consultation and patch test will be carried out before any treatment can begin. Improvements in the skin condition will gradually occur throughout your treatments plan. Patients must follow these instructions prior to any laser skin treatment:

 

  • Any type of medication should be stated.
  • Do not use anti-ageing preparations, glycolic or any Retin A products for at least 3 days prior to treatment.
  • Avoid makeup including mineral makeup right before your treatment session.
  • Patients should avoid rigorous exercise and swimming right before and after treatment.
  • Skin cannot be treated near any tattoos or permanent make-up areas.
  • No self-tanners for at least 2-4 weeks prior treatment.
  • Some hair-reduction may occur as a result of this treatment.
  • If excessive dark hair is present this may have to be shaved.
  • Do not have any laser treatments within 3 weeks of having fillers.
