Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • Absolutely no prolonged sun for 2 weeks prior to laser treatment. Treatment of tanned skin can increase the risk of blistering and/or permanent skin discoloration.
  • Do not use any self-tanning lotions in the month prior to treatment.
  • Stop using Tretinoin, Retin-A, Renova and Differin for one week prior to treatments.
  • Please inform us if you are currently taking any oral antibiotics.
  • Please inform us if you have any history of herpes, cold sores, or fever blisters. In such instances, we recommend taking an oral prescription antiviral starting on the day before the laser treatment.

Post Care Instructions

Patient response can vary after a SkinTyte treatment. Erythema (redness) is usually noted within a few minutes after the completion of the procedure. A slight sunburn sensation in and around the area treated is also normal and expected. These reactions tend to subside within 1-4 hours after the treatment.

Until sensitivity has completely subsided, avoid all the following:

  • Hot or cold water – cleanse with tepid water
  • Shaving
  • Swimming pools and spas with multiple chemicals/chlorine and severe temperature changes
  • Activities that cause excessive perspiration

Avoid the us se of scented lotions or soaps, exfoliant creams (Tretinoin, Retin-A, glycolic/salicylic and alpha- hydroxy acids), acne creams or gels, loofa sponges and aggressive scrubbing for the next 5 days.

  • A cold compress or an ice pack can be used to provide comfort if the treated area is especially warm. This is rarely needed but if so, usually within the first 4 hours after the treatment.
  • Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment if skin is intact and there are no signs of blistering.
  • If the skin is broken or a blister appears, contact the office immediately.
  • Avoid any sun exposure to the treated area for a minimum of 7 days after the procedure. The treated area is more prone to sunburn and pigmentation change. Keep the area covered and use a sun block with a protection factor of 30+, reapplying the sun block every two hours. Delayed blistering secondary to sun exposure has been noted up to 72 hours post treatment.

If you have excessive swelling or blistering occurs, contact the office immediately at 561-498-4407.
