What is the downtime following the treatment?
After the treatment we recommend plenty of moisturising cream over the next 3-5 days. You will be ‘sunburnt’ red after the treatment for 1-2 days and then get some flaking of the skin over 3-7 days according to the intensity of the settings. You must avoid touching the treatment area, to minimise infection. You must not rub or pick at any micro-crusts as this could cause scarring or hyperpigmentation. These micro-crusts will lift away naturally by day 10. For 24 hours after treatment you should avoid swimming, strenuous physical activity and saunas. You should also wait until the next day before applying skincare or makeup.
