HALO-PRO FRACTIONAL LASER: POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

  • Redness is normal and expected.
  • Pinpoint bleeding may occur.
  • Immediately after treatment, swelling is common and expected, especially under the eyes. To avoid further swelling, it may be beneficial to sleep with head elevated with extra pillows the first night after treatment.
  • The treated area may be extremely warm for 12-24 hours after the treatment.  Your clinician may recommend cool compresses to help alleviate discomfort.
  • Post treatment discomfort may be relieved by over the counter oral pain relievers.
  • Itching may be experienced during the healing phase and is completely normal. Oral antihistamines, such as Benadryl or Zyrtec, may help with this. 

Days 1-3 Post Treatment:

  • AM Routine- Cleanse skin with Pamela Metamorphosis Sensitive Skin Cleanser, apply Neova Post-Laser lotion and follow with Pamela Metamorphosis SPF 30.
  • PM Routine- Cleanse skin with Pamela Metamorphosis Sensitive Skin Cleanser and apply Neova Post-Laser lotion. If you feel dry, you can apply more lotion as needed.
  • On the 2nd or 3rd day after treatment, you will increasingly notice tiny dark spots and a bronzed appearance to the treated skin. Do not pick, rub, scrub or irritate your skin in any way while it is healing, as this may cause scarring, pigmentation complications and/or infection.
  • Mineral make-up may be worn if necessary.
  • Avoid heat, saunas, hot tubs and sweaty activity; this includes exercise of any kind during these days
  • Do not use a Clarisonic or facial brush of any kind.

Days 4-7:

  • AM Routine- Cleanse skin with Pamela Metamorphosis Sensitive Skin Cleanser, apply Pamela Metamorphosis Moisturizer Plus cream and follow with Pamela Metamorphosis SPF 30. Moisturizer should be applied generously and reapplied whenever skin feels dry.
  • PM Routine- Cleanse skin with Pamela Metamorphosis Sensitive Skin Cleanser and apply Pamela Metamorphosis Moisturizer Plus cream.
  • Do not use a Clarisonic or facial brush of any kind.
  • At the end of day 7, apply Pamela Metamorphosis Enzyme Mask to damp face in the shower and leave on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing. The steam is essential for the enzymes to work and remove any lingering flakes of skin.

Days 8+:

  • You may resume your normal skincare routine as long as your skin is healed.

For your convenience, you can start using the FRESH Facial Cleansing Towels included in your post care kit.
