Pre Treatment Instructions for Carbon Laser Facial
For the five days prior to your procedure avoid using on your face Retinoids, such as Retin-A, Vitamin C, Glycolic acids, and any type of strong cream that could interfere with your treatment.
Avoid getting skin treatments at least two weeks prior to your session; these includes microdermabrasion and any type of professional or home exfoliation, Botox, Fillers, etc.
If you are taking antibiotics, make sure you have taken your last dose at least 7 days prior to your laser treatment.
Use Sun Protection
Wearing sun protection is extremely important whether you are seeking a Carbon Laser Peel treatment or not. You should always wear sun protection because it protects your skin from the harsh UVA and UVB rays of the sun. This includes wearing sunscreen, as well as a hat when going out in the sun.
Refrain from Smoking
Smokers need to be extra careful when considering laser treatments because it can affect their bodies’ ability to heal and achieve optimal results. Nicotine has been known to narrow the blood vessels in the skin, which prevents nutrients from reaching the outer layer of the skin.
