Immediately After A Morpheus8 in Solana Beach, San Diego Treatment
Most patients can expect that their skin will appear pink or red and a bit dry for several days after treatment. There could also be some minor skin flaking. If you find that’s true, a gentle moisturizer works best.
The Irritants To Avoid and The Steps To Take
Some redness, swelling, and minor skin irritation are normal. However, there are a few irritants that you should avoid until your skin has had time to heal fully. Some patients report they’ve noticed needle marks around the treatment area, and those disappear in 3 days.
- One of the first steps two to three hours after a treatment session is washing your face with lukewarm water in a mild cleanser. Doing this just before going to bed or after the procedure itself is a good idea. You’ll need to avoid scrubbing, picking, or exfoliating your skin. Patting your face dry with a clean towel is all that’s required.
- For the first day after an appointment, continue a skincare routine with the gentle cleanser and add a recommended moisturizer. Avoiding any product with harsh ingredients, including makeup, is important. You can resume using your regular skincare products two or three days after a session.
- On the second day, you can start using SPF 30 sunscreens, but you’ll need to avoid consuming alcohol, smoking, and wearing perfume to reduce the risk of bruising and swelling.
- It’s also recommended that you wait until the third day before you start wearing makeup. After one week, you can restart your regular skincare routine.
