Diamond Glow Facial Aftercare Guide

Congratulations on your recent Diamond Glow Facial treatment! To ensure the best results and minimize any potential side effects, please follow this aftercare guide carefully.

Immediately After Treatment

  1. Gentle Touch:
    • Avoid touching your face unnecessarily to keep it clean and reduce the risk of irritation or infection.
  2. No Makeup:
    • Refrain from applying makeup for at least 24 hours to allow your skin to breathe and heal.
  3. Hydration:
    • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, which helps your skin recover and maintain its glow.
  4. Sun Protection:
    • Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 before going outside. Your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays after the treatment.

First 24 Hours

  1. Avoid Heat Exposure:
    • Stay away from saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, and prolonged sun exposure, as heat can irritate your skin and exacerbate any redness or swelling.
  2. No Strenuous Activity:
    • Avoid vigorous physical activity that causes excessive sweating, which can irritate your freshly treated skin.
  3. Gentle Skincare:
    • Use a gentle cleanser and avoid exfoliating products, retinoids, or other strong active ingredients that may cause irritation.
  4. No Picking or Scratching:
    • Do not pick, scratch, or rub your face, as this can lead to irritation or infection.

First Week

  1. Moisturize:
    • Keep your skin well-hydrated with a gentle, hydrating moisturizer. This helps maintain the results of your Diamond Glow Facial.
  2. Avoid Harsh Products:
    • Avoid using products with strong active ingredients like retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and benzoyl peroxide for at least a week.
  3. Sun Protection:
    • Continue to apply sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days. Your skin is more susceptible to sun damage after treatment.
  4. Avoid Excessive Heat and Cold:
    • Protect your skin from extreme temperatures, as both heat and cold can irritate your skin post-treatment.

General Care

  1. Monitor Side Effects:
    • Common side effects include mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity. These usually subside within a few hours to a day. If you experience severe or unusual symptoms, contact your skincare provider immediately.
  2. Follow Up:
    • Schedule a follow-up appointment with your skincare provider as recommended to assess your skin and plan any additional treatments if necessary.
  3. Healthy Lifestyle:
    • Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate hydration to support overall skin health.
  4. Gentle Routine:
    • Adopt a gentle skincare routine tailored to your skin type and needs, focusing on hydration and protection.
