PicoSure Pre/Post Instructions

No sun exposure, tanning beds and sunless tanning cream for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Sun exposure decreases the effectiveness of the laser treatment and can increase the chance of Post-treatment complications. 

Day of Treatment:
Arrive without any makeup, creams, or oils on treatment area

Be sure to inform your care provider if you have ever had cosmetic tattoos or cosmetic pigmentation or permanent makeup applied near the area of treatment 

Wait 24 hours before applying makeup if you are prone to breakouts or have oily skin 
Cleanse the treated area at least daily with water and mild soap, and then pat the area dry

Do not rub or scratch the treated area. Discomfort may be relieved by cold gel packs and/or an over the counter pain reliever, such as acetaminophen

If crusting/scabbing occurs, do not shave or pick the area. Apply moisturizer to the treatment area 2-3 times a day. Keep the area moist, and let the crusting/scabbing resolve on its own. 

Until you are fully healed, avoid

Contact sports or any other activity that could cause injury of the treated area

Swimming, soaking or using hot tubs/whirlpools until the skin heals
