It is important to follow all aftercare instructions to prevent complications, scarring and to achieve optimum results. Please read carefully:
1) KEEP UNCOVERED AT ALL TIMES
Keep open to the air. Do not cover with a plaster or anything else. Air/oxygen provides good and faster healing. You should not be touching the area at all but if you find yourself needing to please make sure that your hands are exceptionally clean.
2) CLEAN BY BLOTTING AREA
Use a saline/salt solution 3 to 4 times a day using a paper towel or gauze. NO ICE.
3) DO NOT SOAK
You can shower as usual but keep the area out of the shower spray the best you can and do not let the area stay wet for more than a few minutes. It is best to keep it dry but if you do get it wet, gently pat dry.
4) NO SUNBATHING/SUNBEDS
Also no swimming, saunas, hot tubs, or exercise (no exercise for at least 14 days)
5) DO NOT DISRUPT THE SCABBING PROCESS
No picking or scratching. All scabbing needs to fall off naturally. If you force or pick a scab you will disrupt the process and possibly cause scarring. It is critical to keep the scabs on as long as possible to achieve optimum results.
6) TREAT AREA CAREFULLY
Do not do anything at all that could cause issues or problems to the treated area.
7) OIL ONCE SCABBING HAS NATURALLY FALLEN OFF
Apply a small drop of provided oil 3 - 4 times a day for a minimum of 4 weeks. Only oil once scabs have fallen off
It is important to the process and integrity of the skin that 8 full weeks of healing take place before another lightening session.
Lightening and/or removing unwanted pigment is a long process and patience is required. This is true whether you are choosing a lightening product service or laser. Please be patient and give the process a fair chance to work.
Expect visible changes in 2 to 5 sessions. How many sessions needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how deep it was implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result. In many cases, only a percentage of the pigment needs to be lightened or removed and then we can continue the correction process by colour correction or colour shifting. In those cases when we have pigment misplaced or in an unwanted area, colour correcting will not be an option and removing as much of the pigment as possible will be our ultimate goal.
Results cannot be foreseen, predicted or guaranteed.
