After your procedure, it is recommended to observe the following in order to avoid any complications. This applies to both clinical procedures and at home microdermabrasion machines.

  • No makeup or any topical skincare that is not cleared by the aesthetician. If you're doing at home microdermabrasion, included harsh creams and toners.

After 24 hours

  • No hair removal treatments like waxing, depilatories, etc. Men should close shave be before the treatment.
  • No swimming

After 48 hours

  • No collagen injections, Botox, or dermal fillers. If being done before the treatment, wait at l east 14 days to allow the fillers to settle in the skin.
  • No sun exposure including sun beds and saunas

After 72 hours

  • No using of hydroxy acids including AHA, retinoids, or glycolic acids
  • No using of heavy and strong creams
  • No using of mechanical exfoliation like facial wash with beads

General care

  • Make sure to wear sunscreen with a minimum spf of 30 and formulated for sensitive skin. This is to avoid hyperpigmentation.
  • Use moisturizers to hydrate the skin and prevent any peeling.
  • Choose products that have a pH of between 4.5 and 7. 
  • As a general rule, essential oils and organic botanical ingredients should not be used to avoid any allergic reactions.
  • If undergoing laser treatments, it is recommended that the laser treatments be finished before moving on to microdermabrasion for maintenance. Allow two weeks between the procedures.
