Pre Treatment Instructions
Use a 4% Hydroquinone brightening pad once every night. Dab gently over affected areas, looking out for redness. If you experience persistent redness lasting through the next morning, skin a day and apply PerfectionsMD Super Hydrator throughout the day until it subsides. Stop pads 5 days prior to treatment.
Use PerfectionsMD Hydrating Mask for 2 days before treatment. After removing the mask, apply the remaining serum from the package onto the face. There is no need to rinse or wash the face after application.
Fraxel is a unique skin resurfacing laser. You may experience redness, dryness, tightness, and/or swollen skin. Small dark spots may appear. These are dead skin cells that will begin to slough off after a few days. (No dark spots or crusting should occur if you are getting treatment for scars because the laser works at a deeper level of the skin for these types of treatments.)
