Upon completion of your laser procedure, you may apply a cool, water-soaked cloth or a water mister to your skin to calm any stinging, redness or irritation; however, DO NOT RUB YOUR SKIN. Sleep on your back to avoid facial contact with bed linens. For 72 hours after treatment, do not use the following: Retin-A®, Renova® (or other retinoid containing products); abrasive or exfoliating sponges/scrubs; glycolic or betahydroxy products; and alcohol-containing solutions or at-home peels. After 24 hours, use only gentle unscented cleansers to wash and do not rub the skin. Avoid the sun and after 24 hours, protect your skin daily with a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 applied every morning before going outdoors. Avoid steam rooms, saunas and hot tubs for 24 hours. No steaming baths or steaming hot showers on the evening after your treatment. Take a quick warm shower and do not touch or wash your face. Avoid the use of ‘Active’ products and makeup for a full 24 hours after treatment.
