POST TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Congratulations on your dermaplaning treatment!
Dermaplaning is an excellent anti-aging treatment that provides immediate and cumulative results with each service you receive.
Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that has removed dead skin cells and vellus hair from the surface of your skin. Your face should feel softer than ever and look brighter and more youthful.
Be sure to take care of your skin following dermaplaning or other anti-aging treatments. Following these instructions will maintain your results longer, and help you avoid complications.
Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser and warm, NOT hot, water. Splash water on face. Do not use abrasive washcloths, Clarisonic, or hot shower spray for the first 24-48 hours. Do not use cleansers, serums or spot treatments containing salicylic acid or Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) for 5 days following treatment.
Tone: Hydrating and brightening toners will penetrate deeper. If you are sensitive, try all products on a small area before applying full face.
Serums: Active ingredients in serums penetrate much better now, so you’ll see quicker results. Ask your esthetician about the right serums for your skin. Please do not use Retin-A, 5 days pre and post dermaplaning. For darker skin tones: use the IMAGE skincare ILUMA brightening serum to reduce the risk of PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation)
Moisturizer: Choose a hydrating moisturizer and apply twice daily. It’s common for skin to feel tight but is dewy to the touch. This is good and will only last a short time. For darker skin tones: use a 1% hydrocortisone cream for 5 days following treatment to calm inflammation and reduce the risk of PIH. The IMAGE post recovery balm contains beeswax and organic botanical ingredients to restore the skin's barrier after the treatment. This a perfect barrier cream for dry or sensitive skin types.
SPF: Your skin is more vulnerable to UV rays after exfoliation. SPF is essential to protect your skin- even on cloudy days UVA(aging) rays are present. The IMAGE prevention + SPF 50 is perfect to hydrate and protect your skin after a treatment.
Makeup: Makeup can irritate skin after dermaplaning. Bacteria, alcohols, colorants, and fragrance are all irritants that can cause contact dermatitis. Be sure to clean your makeup brushes and apply clean (new) mineral makeup to minimize risks. The IMAGE iconceal foundation is perfect after this treatment with amazing coverage; it’s oxygenating and contains SPF 30 for additional coverage.
DO: avoid sun exposure as much as possible. If you must be in the sun, apply and reapply SPF every 2 hours, wear a hat and seek shade.
DO: Delay exposure to excessive heat, heavy workouts, steam rooms, and saunas for 24-48 hours post treatment.
DO: Wait 7 days before facial waxing. Waxing maybe be done prior to dermaplaning.
DO: Schedule your next appointment for 4 weeks at KLOE to optimize results.
DO: Enjoy your new look!
