Absolutely. So let’s jump straight in. Shall we? So if we pick up where we left off, so basically people would like to know what should you not do after a HydraFacial?
Okay. So in terms of do’s and don’ts, um, my absolute one would definitely be, do not use any acids or even like derma cosmetics that has acid in it especially salicylic or even retinol the day before your treatment, or even the week before the treatment. And also don’t use a scrub, bleaching or like razors or laser hair removal, anything that would make her skin sensitive by any chance, because with HydraFacial we do use chemical peels, even though they’re mild, very, very mild is too. If you have like sensitive skin, it can be a little bit, it can leave extra sensitive.
Yeah. I think with anything like, you know, you were saying with the fact that we do use serums that even though they’re very, very mild chemical peels and that the end of the day, they are still chemical peels and they are acids. So afterwards, like, you know, like you were saying, definitely don’t do anything with your, any alpha hydroxy acids or salicylic or retinols or anything like that for, I would probably say at least a week, and definitely not go sort of out in the sun guys, when we say, don’t go out in the sun, we’re not talking about, you know, you walk outside cave. It’s not like you have to sort of like run from the, from, from the sun into the house. You know, when we say, stay out of the sun, that’s the case of, if you know, you’re going to be outdoors for a long period of time, you need to make sure that you’re wearing your sunblock, you know? And if it’s going to be for hours on end to make sure you wear a hat, it’s just because the chemical peels and things that we use, they can sensitize the skin slightly, which means that when you go into the sun, your skin, your skin is more susceptible to the sun and pigmentations.
And also because, with HydraFacial we removed the first layer of the skin, we remove all the dead cells. So, it’s not that we remove the protection, but we do leave the skin smoother and it’s easier to get the UV red light, yeah?
The UV light through the skin, it’s it doesn’t sort of like block it.
So if you have hormonal pigmentation or like you’re susceptible to have pigmentation marks so you can develop even more hyperpigmentation. So I think that’s the main concern the pigmentation.
Yeah. But apart from that, to be honest with you, HydraFacials, it’s just a nice, deep cleansing, mild facial. So there’s not really too much afterwards that you have to worry about it. I honestly think the most important things is the sun. So no sunbeds as well. And just being careful of your retinols and alpha hydroxy acids at home.
