Laser PIGMENTATION Removal after care

  • For the first 72 hours after treatment, you may feel like you have a sunburn. Avoid hot baths or showers (lukewarm is fine), hot tubs and saunas, and vigorous forms of exercise that may cause excessive heat or sweating.

  • Immediately after treatment, you’ll see some darkening or the treated pigmentation and redness that can last anywhere from two hours to three days. You may apply aloe vera gel to relieve symptoms; we carry an aloe mist and aloe gel made specifically for the face.

  • Use only gentle cleanser for sensitive skin, no foaming or scrub type cleansers for a minimum of 2 weeks.Pat dry only, do not rub your face with the towel.

  • Exfoliation with scrubs AHA, BHA, or devices such as a rotating brush such also be avoided for a minimum of 2 weeks.

  • For the week following treatment keep the treated areas covered with over the counter ointment like bacitracin or Aquaphor.

  • Direct sun exposure should be avoided for a minimum of 2 weeks and SPF of 30 or higher  is a must every day after treatment even for minimal activity outdoors. Continuing to limit sun exposure  will help keep this type of pigmentation from reoccurring.

  • Schedule your next visit. It may take a few treatments to completely reduce the areas of pigmentation and treatments should be performed every 4 weeks until desired results are achieved. 


Q: Why is it important for people to use a broad spectrum SPF?


A: According to the American Academy of Dermatology 1 in 5 people will develop skin cancer within their lifetime. Daily sunscreen application is vital to protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Broad Spectrum SPF allows you to identify the sunscreens that protect against both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are mostly responsible for giving the skin that “burn” and damage more of the top layers of the skin. UVA rays however are actually more damaging because they penetrate deeper within the skin and cause more of the aging factors like fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots. So be sure to check your sunscreen to confirm you have a Broad Spectrum SPF


Q: Do people of all skin tones need to wear SPF? Why?


A: A: Yes, all skin is affected by UV rays. Darker skin types produce more melanin which is the pigment of the skin so while they do have more of a natural “built-in” UV protection they still can develop sun related damage. It just isn’t always visible on the surface. Once darker skin types start to show sun related spots, it is more challenging to treat. It’s best to be preventative and wear sunscreen daily.
