AFTERCARE

POST-Microdermabrasion Instructions

To maximise microdermabrasion recovery time and results, it is important to follow all post-procedure instruction below:

• Keep the new skin clean and moisturised

• Anti-inflammatory creams or cold compresses may be used as necessary

• Use a gentle cleanser.

• It is important to avoid irritating the treated skin with harsh chemicals, rubbing or tanning

for one week.

• Although some peeling may occur in the treated areas, moisturizer should help minimize

this effect.

• Avoid staying in the sun for at least 7 days after the microdermabrasion treatment to

prevent UV rays from damaging your skin which slows down the recovery.

• Patients who absolutely cannot avoid sun exposure should use a broad-spectrum

sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

• Do not use glycolic, alpha hydroxy, beta hydroxy, retinol, benzyl peroxide or topical acne

medications for 24-48 hours following treatment.

• You may resume prescription retinoid products 3 – 7 days after your last

microdermabrasion treatment.

If you are receiving a series of treatments, do not resume any of these products until after you have

completed your last microdermabrasion treatment.
