  • Your skin may feel tight and sensitive post-treatment, similar to a mild sunburn.
  • On your treatment day only apply the HGLift (supplied to you).
  • The day after treatment, apply Rescue or Sheald and an All-Physical SPF (Tizo) to help soothe, hydrate and protect the skin.
  • Use only approved products recommended by your skin care expert to promote the best results and avoid irritation. Product absorption increases from 7% pre-treatment to 80% post-treatment. Clients must be very cautious about what is applied as the skin can react to ingredients in outside skincare products that can lead to irritation, granulomas, and infection.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. Your skin is now freshly resurfaced and prone to sun damage.
  • Avoid Ibuprofen (Advil) for the next 24 hours.
  • Wear at least an SPF 30+ daily sunscreen starting the following day. Use all physical spf to ensure no adverse reaction.
  • Sleep on a clean pillowcase. Acne clients should skip putting fabric softener in the dryer as it leaves a waxy residue on the fabric.
  • Avoid aerobic exercise for 24-48 hours.
  • Avoid makeup for 24 hours. If you must use makeup within the first 24 hours, please only use 100% pure mineral powder makeup.
  • Don’t use hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas, and/or excessively hot showers for 2 days.
  • Don’t go swimming for 2 days.
  • Don’t use AHA’s or BHA’s until 72 hours post-treatment (skin exfoliants).
  • Don’t use retinoic acid for 5 days.
  • Don’t have electrolysis, waxing, sugaring, threading, or any other form of hair removal for 7 days.
  • Don’t tan or use a tanning booth for at least 14 days.
  • Don’t use facial scrubs or mechanical forms of exfoliation for 14 days.
  • Don’t have a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or dermaplaning for at least 14 days.
  • Avoid direct prolonged sun exposure for at least 10 days.
  • Avoid touching your treated skin unnecessarily. If you must touch the treated area ensure your hands are clean. Use the prescribed home care products consistently and as directed to achieve optimal results.
