Potenza Pre & Post Instructions

The following instructions should be followed prior to each Potenza treatment

1 Week Before
Start (or continue) using a hyaluronic acid serum – we recommend SkinMedica’s HA5
Discontinue any exfoliating or potentially irritating products like retinoic acid, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, etc

Keep hydrated by drinking water (at least eight cups daily) or other hydrating fluids to improve treatment outcomes

24 Hours Before
Avoid drinking alcohol

Shave visible hair from the treatment area, especially coarse or thick hair (like beards) should be shaven the day of your treatment

Day of Treatment:
Arrive with a clean face – NO makeup

Please keep in mind that your treatment area is an open wound for the first 24 hours. Much of the following instructions are based on preventing infection.

24 Hours Post

Do NOT apply makeup

Refrain from high intensity aerobic exercise or activities that increase the body temperature like saunas, hot tubs, steam showers or exercise

Avoid alcohol consumption if possible

If erythema (redness) after treatment persists, use an ice pack (or frozen peas) at home, but always use a protective barrier, such as a face cloth, between the skin and the ice pack

General Post

Always wash your hands thoroughly before touching your face: there are micro pathways opened into the dermis and hands will introduce bacteria.

Make sure to wash the area with warm water and a mild cleanser

Do not scrub or exfoliate the skin

Do not pick at treated tissue: doing so may result in hyper- or hypopigmentation

Mineral makeup is acceptable after the erythema (redness) resolves.
ONLY use clean fingertips to apply, NO brushes or sponges.

Avoid extended sun exposure and apply sunscreen spf 30+ daily

If skin feels tight or dry, apply hyaluronic serum (HA5) frequently.

If you added exosomes to your treatment, use the remaining exosomes 2 times daily at home until vial is empty

If you currently have skin breakouts, you may find that the condition may temporarily worsen due to inflammation or edema.

If you have any of the following for more than 24 hours, please call us at (630-262-2515)
Rash, itching, redness, any other concerns

We require you to wait at least 2 weeks before having any injectable, laser, or esthetic treatments.
