WHAT WILL THE CLIENT LOOK LIKE POST TREATMENT?
The client will appear erythemic (red with inflammation) over the area of treatment. This redness should reduce within a few hours.
The lower the Fitzpatrick scale (1 is a person who is very pale and always will burn with sun exposure) the longer it make take for the redness to subside.
There will be a crust similar to that of a picked pimple but will shed in approximately 7-10 days.

The client is to use a gentle cleanser & moisturizing sun block after treatments.
SKIN CLASSIC BEFORE TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Is it safe to treat the lesions?
We strongly encourage you to have your doctor examine any spot that is questionable.
Please follow the outline below to prepare. It is recommended that you take the following into consideration:
DO exfoliate at home daily, 10 to 14 days prior to treatment. This will prepare the skin, allow for better treatment results and reduce the risk of complications.
It is recommended that extended sun exposure be avoided, especially in the 10 days prior to treatment.
It is recommended to delay use of Tretinoin, Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuo, Ziana and high-percentage AHA and BHA products for approximately seven days prior to treatment.
Consult your Physician before temporarily discontinuing use of any prescription medications.
Treatments may cause slight redness, tightness, peeling, flaking or temporary dryness.
Most patients find it unnecessary to apply makeup, as the skin will be smooth, dewy and radiant following treatment. If you would like to apply makeup, allow approximately 15 minutes for the pH of the skin to stabilize before applying foundation.
DON'T go to a tanning bed two weeks prior to treatment.
DON'T wax, tweeze, or use depilatory creams for 7 days prior.
SKIN CLASSIC AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS
After a treatment with the Skin classic it is common see and feel redness and
irritation. Some crusting may form on areas involved.
DO NOT pick at any area with crusting. Prematurely removing the crust may
result in hyperpigmentation or scarring. If irritation persists past a few hours, ice
the area with a clean bag of frozen vegetables or an ice pack wrapped in a clean
cloth or paper towel. Try to maintain 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off with no
more than 20 minutes of ice-skin contact within 1 hour.
DO NOT use any abrasive products or brushes on your face for 72 hours. This
includes exfoliating face wash, loofah sponges or Clarisonic type cleansing brushes.
Keep your skin clean and moisturized during the day. When cleansing the face or
showering use mild products without alcohol and pat dry instead of rubbing to
prevent removal of crust. Avoid excessively hot water during bathing, including hot
tubs and saunas.
Do not apply make-up to the treated area for 24 hours after treatment. Make up
may be worn over moisturizing sun block after 24 hours. Avoid direct sunlight
immediately following treatment. Daily moisturizing sun block SPF 30 or higher is
recommended regardless of weather. Sun block is your first defense against antiaging.
Do not use any other form of peeling or bleaching products for 30 days. Do not
have any laser or ablative treatments on the treated area for at least 30 days. Do
not have any aggressive facials or facial treatments including microdermabrasion
or dermaplaning on treated areas for at least 30 days. It is ok to get treatments
around treated areas, but please inform your skin treatment specialist that you had a high frequency treatment before hand, and where it was performed.
After crust sloughs the skin may be pink and tender. Continue to use SPF 30 on
treated area until skin has returned to normal color.
