Clearing acne does not happen overnight. It is a process. Did you know acne can start in the skin 30-90 days before you even see it? Due to this, clearing acne takes time. Depending upon the type of acne you have, and how committed you are to the program, will dictate how long it takes to clear. Typically it will take between 3-6 months before you are completely clear, but as the process goes on, expect to see clearer skin. It is my hope that your skin will clear within 4-6 months, but individual results will vary. Your compliance is of utmost importance. Keeping your appointments is imperative to clearing your skin.
Our recommended treatment frequency is every 4-6 weeks for mild congestion and every 5 weeks for moderate to severe cystic acne.
Immediately after treatment, the skin will appear flushed and there will be warmth in the treated area, however this will settle within 4-6 hours. In the 12-24 hours after treatment, you may experience an increase in breakouts in the areas treated. Don’t worry - this is a natural part of your body’s clearing and renewal process. This process is called purging.
HOW COMFORTABLE IS THIS TREATMENT?
The treatment comes with some warmth to the treatment site, which can be uncomfortable for some people if their acne is already inflamed and sensitive. Extractions is the biggest process in clearing out any congestion, this is somewhat mild to moderate discomfort and may make you a bit sensitive and teary. Pain tolerance varies.
- Erythema (redness of skin): It will gradually fade during the first few days.
- Inflammation (swelling): Can last up to 24 hours.
Post Facial Purging: you may experience an increase in breakouts in the areas treated. Don’t worry - this is a natural part of your body’s clearing and renewal process. This process is called purging.
Avoid sun-tanning, spray-tanning, tanning injections and sun-beds for 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment.
Avoid botox or fillers for at least 2 to 3 weeks before your treatment.
Avoid any other type of procedures for 3 month on the same area which you intend to have treated with this treatment , such as laser therapy or chemical peels as this may prevent your treatment being performed.
Use SPF-30 to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker skinned.
You may even wish to consider a Pre-Treatment product using a Tyrosinase Inhibitor as this can help prevent overproduction of pigment in the skin. Tyrosinase Inhibitors are not just useful for those who suffer from hyperpigmentation but for anyone, even those with healthy, even skin.
Discontinue any use of topical Retin-A products a minimum of 7 days prior to treatment.
POST TREATMENT AFTER CARE
Wash your face with cool water. Warm or hot water might not feel as good as cool or cold water, which can help soothe post treatment sensations.
Apply sunscreen with SPF30 or more. Your skin is more delicate after the treatment, so avoid direct sun exposure.
Don’t exfoliate within 4 weeks after treatment. Over-exfoliating can lead to more redness or sensitivity, so wait until your skin feels up to it.
