Before Your Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatment
Medications and Health Conditions to Report

  • If you're pregnant, nursing, or currently on Accutane (treatment is possible 6 months after the last Accutane dose if treating the face).
  • Report any active cold sores, fever blisters, or skin infections.
  • Inform our staff about all medications you're taking, especially antibiotics like Tetracycline or Doxycycline, which can increase photosensitivity.

    Skin Care and Medications to Avoid One Week Before Treatment
  • Refrain from sun exposure and sunless tanning. We cannot treat sunburned or tanned skin.
  • Discontinue use of skin irritants (glycolic/salicylic acids, benzoyl peroxide, retinol products like Retin A, Tazorac, Triluma, Differin, and Vitamin C) in the area to be treated.

    Day Before and Day of Your Treatment
  • If you have a history of cold sores, inform our staff so we can prescribe anti-viral medication. Active cold sores or skin infections will necessitate rescheduling.
  • On the day of treatment, please arrive without makeup or moisturizers on the area to be treated. We provide cleansers if needed.
  • For those using topical numbing cream or anti-anxiety medication, arrive 45 minutes early and follow our specific instructions.

    Post-Treatment Care for Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
    Immediate Aftercare
  • Redness and swelling are normal. In rare cases of blistering, use a prescribed topical antibiotic ointment.

    Skin Care Post-Treatment
  • Avoid ice packs as they might reduce treatment effectiveness.
  • Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment.
  • Gently cleanse and moisturize the treated area on the day of treatment. Resume regular skincare the following day.

    Activity Recommendations
  • Postpone waxing, tweezing, and the use of depilatory creams for at least 3 days.
  • Avoid strenuous activities, hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms right after treatment.
  • Hydration and a balanced diet are important for your recovery.

    Sun Protection and Skincare Products
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher containing Zinc Oxide from the day of treatment, and continue daily.
  • You can resume the use of skin irritants like glycolic/salicylic acids, benzoyl peroxide, retinol products, and vitamin C 3 days post-treatment.
  • Resuming Other Treatments
  • Wait at least one week post-treatment before undergoing additional procedures like Wrinkle Relaxer, Dysport, chemical peels, and dermal fillers.

    Personalized Aftercare
  • Our team will provide a tailored post-treatment skincare regimen to enhance the results of your non-surgical skin tightening treatment.
