What to do post procedure:
You will be given ointment to use post procedure. Apply it several times a day with a fresh Q-tip each application for the first week after your procedure. Only a small amount is needed. DO NOT allow the treated area become dry and crusty, especially in the first 4 days, keep the area moist during the remainder of the flaking process (7 days). You may experience redness or swelling post procedure which is normal and should subside within 24 hours. DO NOT use Neosporin™. If you run out of the ointment, you may purchase Polysporin™ at a local drug store.

Pigment is usually darker post procedure and becomes slightly lighter after the healing (flaking) process. In 5-7 days, the area may begin to flake and will fall off independently. Everybody heals differently, but typically it takes 2-4 weeks for the treated site to heal completely. Once healing is complete, you may notice that the color has faded somewhat and this is completely normal and the reason for a touch up. You may wish to book your complimentary 90-day touch up from the date of the original procedure. It is advised to wait a minimum of 4 weeks after the initial procedure to book your complimentary touch-up. Client’s skin quality, health, metabolism, sun exposure, and use of exfoliating facial products has to do with how the results come out.
